Publisher's Summary

Get into the Navy SEAL mindset with this raw, brutally honest, in-your-face self-help guide that will teach you how to thrive on adversity.

During the brutal crucible of Navy SEAL training, instructors often tell students to "embrace the suck." This phrase conveys the one lesson that is vital for any SEAL hopeful to learn: Lean into the suffering and get comfortable being very uncomfortable. 

In this powerful, no-nonsense guide, Navy SEAL combat veteran turned leadership expert Brent Gleeson teaches you how to transform every area of your life — the Navy SEAL way. 

Can anyone develop this level of resilience? Gleeson breaks it down to a Challenge-Commitment-Control mindset. He reveals how resilient people view difficulties as a Challenge, where obstacles and failures are opportunities for growth. Next, they have a strong emotional Commitment to their goals and are not easily distracted or deterred. Finally, resilient people focus their energy on the things within their Control, rather than fixating on factors they can't impact. 

Embrace the Suck provides an actionable roadmap that empowers you to expand your comfort zone to live a more fulfilling, purpose-driven life. Through candid storytelling, behavioral science research, and plenty of self-deprecating humor, Gleeson shows you how to use pain as a pathway, reassess your values, remove temptation, build discipline, suffer with purpose, fail successfully, transform your mind, and achieve more of the goals you set.

Critic Reviews

 "Resilience is key to overcoming all obstacles in life, of which there are many! Embrace the Suck masterfully guides the reader through measurable ways to optimize their personal fortitude and become their best self."—Mark Owen, #1 NYT bestselling author of No Easy Day and No Hero 

"The one constant that connects us all is that every single one of us is going to get knocked down in life. What defines us and our character is not just what we do next, but how we do it. Brent Gleeson recommends you embrace the suck and get after it. I agree. It's time to execute!"—Jack Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Savage Son  

"This riveting step-by-step manual boils it down to the one founding principle we are taught in the SEAL Teams--you have to learn to "embrace the suck." I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to level up with a proven process to overcome the adversity we all face in life and business!"—Jason Redman, US Navy SEAL (Retired), NYT bestselling author of The Trident and Overcome

Great Book

This book teaches you to embrace challenges in life rather than run away from them. If you want a book of how to be positive and have an easy life than this isn't for you. This book will show that if you want to grow and develop, then you have to do that hard work and be uncomfortable. The only easy day was yesterday!
