Unless you can get crystal clear about what you want and how to create a plan to accomplish your goals, it will be difficult to realize any measure of success in your life.
My guest today, Retired Navy SEAL, Commander Mark Divine makes the case for the power of silence, meditation, and the mind when it comes to laying the framework for your future success.

Meet Mark Divine
Mark Divine’s first career was as a Certified Public Accountant.
Four years later he left the corporate world to pursue his vision to become an elite Navy SEAL officer. At 26, he graduated as honor-man (#1 ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/s class number 170. Mark served for nine years total on Active Duty and eleven as a Reserve SEAL, retiring as Commander in 2011.
He is the founder of www.NavySEALs.com-the leading web site for gear and information about the SEALs. Later, he launched US Tactical, a program credited with increasing the quality of Navy SEAL candidates and reducing the attrition rate at BUD/s by up to 5% and was the inspiration for his new program, SEALFIT.
Mark is an accomplished martial artist with black belts in Seido and Goju Ryu Karate, a military hand to hand combat certification in SCARS and senior ranking in Saito Nijutsu. He is teacher trained in Ashtanga Yoga, and created the innovative Unbeatable Warrior Yoga program taught to his students.
After working with thousands of special ops candidates and professionals developing mental toughness, Mark self-published his first book Unbeatable Mind in 2011 and launched the at-home study program www.unbeatablemind.com. He is also the author of The Way of the SEAL published by Readers Digest and 8 Weeks to SEALFIT published by St. Martins Press.
