I’m going to share 3 maxims used by Navy SEALs that drive their elite performance.

These maxims have been used by SEALs for decades and have proven their worth in thousands of Special Operations missions in every corner of the world.

The good news is, they’ll work for you too. Apply them to your business and to your personal performance and watch your results soar.

These maxims are based on my podcast conversation with Commander David Sears of the United States Navy. David retired after serving for 20 years in the Navy SEALs. He's a decorated veteran who planned, led, and executed hundreds of Special Operations missions in more than 40 countries on five continents.

In our conversation we talk in-depth about three maxims that guide how Navy SEALs operate. Each maxim is so nuanced that once you dig into the surface-level truth, you’ll find deeper levels of insight that can apply to any kind of business – including, of course, financial advisory.

I really love making these kinds of connections. I firmly believe that to be successful in any business, you need to diversify your inputs and learn as much as you can from whomever you can. You might not think that advisors and Navy SEALs have a whole lot in common. But more often than not, I’ve found that strategies that the absolute best of the best use to excel in one field have lessons for folks in other businesses as well.
