Don Mann, decorated combat veteran, speaker, and endurance athlete, wrote the bestseller "Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Missions with America's Elite Warriors." His new book "Reaching Beyond Boundaries: A Navy SEAL's Guide to Achieving Everything You've Ever Imagined" shares the secrets behind Don's inspiring and seemingly impossible tasks. We detail the lessons he learned from his SEAL training that we can apply to our daily lives to push beyond our internal borders, achieve our goals and conquer both micro and macro goals to make our dreams a reality. Don was known as Warrant Officer Manslaughter, Sweet Satan, Don Maniac, and Dr Death. Why? For more than 22 years he trained and worked out every single day. It was a big part of how Don defined himself. What parts of his SEAL identity is a part of him now, and what parts has he left in the teams? Don, at one point, was on a path to becoming a criminal or drug addict. What was the turning point? Climber Reinhold Messner had a process which was a main key to Don's success. How has Don adopted this process? Don visualised each night, but it was not as hard as he imagined. Don describes the "combat mindset." Don't quit! It's not that simple. Don breaks it down. Identifying the thin line between pushing yourself too far and crashing and burning. What's the point of giving it your all and going just too far? When Don was younger, he asked himself, "How am I going to become good at anything if when I start to feel a little uncomfortable, I just quit?" What does an After Action Review look like for Don today? Building trust in teams. There are two types of pain. Don describes those two types of pain. Learning to deal with pain by changing the focus. What's the replaceable process? Don's favourite leader was General Patton. Why? "Mission first" vs "Me first" As a retired SEAL Team Six member, Don describes the feeling he had when he heard Bin Laden had been shot? How does Don see the ageing process? What's his philosophy on age? Was there ever a boundary Don could not reach beyond? The dichotomy of ego.
