The Discipline of a Navy Seal

One word


What does that mean to you?

To me


It stands for





for Humanity.

A true seal

Is ready to lay down his life

For his fellow brother or sister.

Jocko Willink

Uses his words to speak the truth

In speaking the truth

He hit a cord inside of me

This cord turned a switch

And the switch lit a light

This light has carried me through any obstacle

Any person who decides to get in my way

Of achieving my ultimate goal

The goal of being a successful docto

Someone who can make any patient believe

That they still have hope

Even when the chances are slim


Fight back is sometimes all we can do.

Words hurt

But actions are everlasting.

One ant is weak

But a thousands ants, they build cities.

I may be only one ant

But with the discipline of a Navy Seal

I will stay motivated and determined

To become an ultimate success

Jocko speaks slowly

But his words have a powerful impact

Especially on me

He is like a sculpter

Who works slowly and precisely

To make a beautiful work of art.
