091: Col. Liam Collins | How to Identify the Very Best

According to Col. Liam Collins, Phd., Special Forces Qualified Officer, West Point Professor,and past winner of the Best Ranger Competition – approximately one percent of prospective candidates persist to become members of the special forces. Joe’s always looking for these people but, alas, they are elusive. They may not not linger long by the waterfalls, but are always eyeing the craggy terrain just ahead. Understandably, it is difficult to find those who will consciously fling themselves into relative peril. How does Col. Collins find them and train them? That’s what we want to find out.

Lessons:


  1. The true test of character is the decisions you make under duress.
  2. You develop your mental fortitude like developing muscles: push to the limit of your capacity; recover, then push to the new limit.
  3. The key to success in a highly competitive environment is not to wallow in your comfort zone.
