Quitting has become all too common and all too popular. While I can certainly agree that there may be a point in time where it may be the right course of action, too many men throw in the towel too soon and limit themselves to minimal results in the process. Learning to stick with projects, tasks, and relationships longer than you may normally do opens up all sorts of opportunities reserved for those who show the most perseverance and grit.
Today, I have the opportunity to sit down with former Navy SEAL, JP Dinnell, to talk about his “Never Quit” attitude, where he developed this mentality, qualifiers for staying and quitting, and ultimately how you too can develop the same “Never Quit” mentality.
“You can always go farther than you think.” Tweet That— JP Dinnell
Gents, today I sit down with repeat guest, JP Dinnell.
He is a former Navy SEAL and served with Task Unit Bruiser with Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. Under their command, he served as an elite SEAL sniper in one of the deadliest regions of Iraq in 2006. In fact, his counterpart was Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle.
He also served as a training instructor at Naval Special Warfare Group where he developed special operations urban combat and close-quarter training to better prepare SEAL units for the battlefield.
JP has become a friend, a mentor, and someone I’m motivated and inspired by daily.
“You have to be comfortable with who you are and standing up for what you believe in.” Tweet That— JP Dinnell

Gents, I know we’re knee-deep in a great conversation but let me hit the pause button to tell you about a resource you’re really going to want to know about if you’re ready to take your life to the next level.
It’s called the Iron Council and inside, you’ll band with 500+ like-minded, high-achieving men who will help you identify and complete your life’s biggest objectives.
