What the Marines Know About Discipline That Will Make You a Better Athlete:
The Marine Corps is known for its strict discipline. There are many reasons why they have such strict rules. One reason could be because it helps them maintain order and control over their troops. Another reason might be to keep morale up among their soldiers so that they will perform better under stressful situations.
Still another reason may be due to the fact that if there were no discipline, then how would marines survive?
Marines are taught from a young age to follow orders without question or hesitation. They learn to do this through training and experience. However, sometimes they don’t always understand what is going on around them and get confused when someone tells them something differently than they did before. This confusion causes some problems with other members of the unit, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the person needs to be punished. Sometimes it means that the person just needs clarification on something.
In most cases, it is best to simply explain things to the person again. If they still don’t understand, then it is best not to punish them at all. Instead, they need to ask questions until they do. Then it is up to you whether or not you want them back in your unit. Some people like being told what to do and others prefer that someone else does it for them.
This is something that you should take into consideration when recruiting new members for your unit.
Loyalty is another important thing to maintain with your members. If someone joins your team, then they are part of it until the day they die. It doesn’t matter if they are transferred, they will always be considered a member of the team and will be brought in on major decisions concerning the group as a whole. You should not hold someone back from a potentially dangerous mission if they are fully capable of handling it. It is important to remember that there are no small parts in the scheme of things.
Everyone has a job to do and if one person fails at their task then everyone could ultimately fail. It is important to recognize the strengths and weaknesses in every member. Some might be skilled with firearms, while others may be able to diffuse bombs better. All of these talents might be needed in a particular situation.
The most important thing above all else is teamwork. All members need to work together to get the job done right. They have to communicate effectively, plan out their attacks, and watch each others backs. The more they work together, the better they will become at fighting as a group. They will be able to anticipate each others moves in battle and know who is going to shoot and who is going to bash.
It takes time and practice to learn how to work together effectively, but it is well worth it in the long run.
What the Marines Can Teach You About Bodybuilding:
Bodybuilding is a lot like combat. You are going to encounter challenges that you have to overcome. Sometimes these challenges are going to be easy, while other times they are going to be impossible without some extra help. In either case, you have to be prepared for anything.
Like marines, bodybuilders have to be in top condition at all times. This means that they have to eat right and exercise on a regular basis. They can’t go eating five chocolate bars after each meal and skipping out on the gym. The best thing about being in tip top shape is that it helps you prepare for anything. If you are already in good physical condition, then it will be a lot easier to get into even better shape for an upcoming event.
The first rule about being a bodybuilder is that there are no rules. Everyone has their own unique style and approach to the sport. You should find something that works for you and then stick with it. If you try another persons method and it doesn’t work for you, then don’t keep doing it. Find what is best for you.
Every person is different and that is something that should be embraced, not rejected.
There is no substitute for hard work.
