MARINES APPROACH TO COMBAT TRAINING

By
Real Estate Agent with Zuber Group Real Estate

Combat training is invasive, intense, urgent, loud, brutal and IN YOUR FACE. Military experts have designed it that way 100% intentionally to scare the shit out of you and get your attention and make every lesson stick. And they don’t teach it in a classroom, you have to experience it in your bones and your straining muscles and your sweat and your adrenaline and your fear so that you learn how powerful and capable a human being can be, even in extreme conditions.

Combat training is designed to simulate actual battle conditions and make you repeat the desired behavior over and over and over so that you can produce that desired behavior UNDER FIRE. Does it suck? Does it hurt? Does it rip you apart emotionally, mentally, and physically? Hell, yes.

So why endure it? Because it’s the only way to stay ALIVE in the trenches. You absolutely MUST have the skills of battle down so well that you can perform the right steps in the right order no matter what is going on around you. When you’re a soldier, you learn under duress. You learn by repetition. YOU LEARN BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO. You learn when to react, when not to react, and how to react. You become prepared to respond—proficiently—to whatever gets thrown at you. Anybody can perform well in a safe, comfortable environment, but when the bullets are flying and casualties are mounting—that’s when it counts. That’s when and where education pays off.


There is another aspect of combat training that is also critical in business training—it must be practiced and put into action. Reading about it isn’t enough, getting a certificate isn’t enough, knowing it isn’t even enough. You’ve got to be able to apply it in action and keep practicing it to remain capable of peak performance at all times.

Like athletic training and combat training, business training conditions you to do what you need to do without even thinking about it. The right action becomes second nature, and business performance becomes a habit, and that frees your mind to FOCUS on the bigger picture and the vision that will dramatically boost your results.
