Man Crush Monday: Mr. Jocko Willink

April 30, 2018


Welcome to the first Man Crush Monday post.  Just as I am inspired by outstanding women and feature them in my Wonderful Woman Wednesday posts, there are outstanding men that I resonate with and have learned from. 


My main man today is Jocko Willink.  I met Jocko via my son.  More specifically, my son, a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard,  played a Jocko podcast for me and I was hooked!


Mr. Willink, former Navy Seal and current Business Game Changer, is known for the mantra: DISCIPLINE EQUALS FREEDOM and I think this is totally brilliant.


The definition of discipline is: 

a : control gained by enforcing obedience or order

b : orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior

c : self-control


For me, when I am disciplined (ie: get up early, do my morning routine, do what I need to do for work including the hard stuff, keep going until I get it done, etc.) I LOVE my life!  I feel good about myself, I am positive.  


 For me personally, it is that simple!  For me,  over and over,  I have experienced that Discipline DOES Equal Freedom.  How about for you?


Jocko has an amazing background and ambitious business that inspires thousands of military and non-military individuals around the country.   I encourage you to follow the links to learn more and potentially follow his podcast or purchase his best-selling book - Extreme Ownership.  


Now - "get after it!" (another beloved Jocko quote)
