Fundamental 1: Live Your Mission

Winners know who they are, what they want, and why they want it.  Learn to drown the critics and have the courage to face the odds by focusing on "why" not "if".  Know your core values.  Know the mission.  Be convicted in the mission.   

Fundamental 2: Commitment

Commitment is a decision to discipline ourselves to fundamental principle in the face of uncontrollable circumstance.  Desire fuels discipline.  Discipline is the road to reach desire.  Every action needs a motivation.  Learn to create committed employees through empowerment, incentivizing, and transparency.  

Fundamental 3: Mental Toughness

Reflection from a gunfight:  Mental Toughness is the ability to interrupt the cause and effect cycle and insert thought and action that produce value.  Learn to thrive in adversity with confidence in any situation.

Fundamental 4: The Team First Mind

Brotherhood doesn't mean we always agree.  It means we set aside our differences to serve a greater cause.  No one is ever greater than the mission.  Learn the individual performance value in choosing service over status.  

Fundamental 5: Leadership

A helicopter crash placed Jason in early position of leadership.   Learn combat tested fundamentals of leadership through Jason's experiences of success and failures leading men on special operations.  Principles designed to create autonomous leaders who take ownership of results and proactively inspire through connection and developing relationships. 

Fundamental 6: Communication

Developing relationships and creating connection may be the most important element of culture and performance. Learn to accountability by attacking problems not people and fundamental principles to calm and confident communication in high stress environments.  

Fundamental 7: Desire to Win.

Learn how to create an organic motivation each and every day to absolutely crush the competition with an unchanging standard.  The pro-active vs. reactive mind.  

Fundamental 8: High Pressure Performance

The heart starts racing...learn a 3 step mental checklist to regaining composure and produce confidence prior to execution.  Developed with a MLB player.  Works for presentations, sales teams, and any high pressure situation.

Fundamental 9: Failure Analyzation

Don't waste your pain.  A unique approach to processing failure by a guy who has failed over and over again. Failure exists necessarily in an effort to increase ability.   It is an opportunity to make ourselves better.  We must embrace what we hate as tool. 

Fundamental 10: Never Quit

Break big things into small pieces.  Learn the mentalities of those who made it through Navy SEAL training vs. those who did not.  One critical step changed my life.  Quitting is not unethical.  It's also not worth it.  Do the next right thing.
