Below is a quote from one of the fallen SEALs:
“Avoid negative sources, people, places, things and habits. Believe in yourself. Consider things in every angle. Don’t give up, and don’t give in. Enjoy life today, yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Family and friends are hidden treasures. Seek them and enjoy their riches. Give more than you plan to hang onto your dream. Ignore those who try to discourage you. Just do it. Keep trying, no matter how hard it seems; it will get easier. Love yourself and make it happen. Never lie, cheat, or steal. Always strike a fair deal. Open your eyes and see things as they really are. Practice makes perfect. Quitters never win and winners never quit. Read, study, and learn everything important in your life. Stop procrastinating. Take control of your own destiny. Understand yourself in order to better understand others. Visualize it. Want it more than anything. Exuberate your efforts. You are unique of all God’s creations. Nothing can replace you. Zero in on your target and go for it.” ~Danny Dietz
