Mental Toughness & Water Survival   Leave a comment

An article from the US Marine Corps Training and Education Command describes the importance of mental clarity, calmness and focus in water survival instructor training. Read the article HERE.

“We have to overcome our mental fears,” said Staff Sgt. Duane Commiato, drill instructor, Company L, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Recruit Training Regiment. “It’s pretty tough, but you have to keep pushing for everyone else.”

“They need to relax in the water,” said [Sgt.] Creel. “We teach them to relax and focus, even when they think they are being pushed past their limit…It is an individual task, but they all go through the same (suffering) and it makes them come together as a team, to push one another to complete the task.”
