Always choose a better thought.


The negative voices can drown out the positive one, and that is something the Holy Spirit is going to be working on you to change. Whatever you hear, whatever you think, if it is a negative, flip it over. “That is not the thought I want. What is a better thought than that?” Always choose a better thought. Always choose a better emotion. You can actually worship your way into it!

C.V. Blevins: Part of the Seal Ethos. Can you make any or all of it your own.


Part of the Seal Ethos. Can you make any or all of it your own.
I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity. My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates and to accomplish our mission. I am never out of the fight.

We demand discipline. We expect innovation. The lives of my teammates and the success of our mission depend on me – my technical skill, tactical proficiency, and attention to detail. My training is never complete.

We train for war and fight to win. I stand ready to bring the full spectrum of combat power to bear in order to achieve my mission and the goals established by my country. The execution of my duties will be swift and violent when required yet guided by the very principles that I serve to defend.

Brave men have fought and died building the proud tradition and feared reputation that I am bound to uphold. In the worst of conditions, the legacy of my teammates steadies my resolve and silently guides my every deed. I will not fail.
