    • Never get into a rut
    • Always ask why you are doing something
    • Do not get locked into disadvantageous patterns
    • "Take the high ground or the high ground will take you"
    • Be wary of routine
    • Have a clear aim; pursue it relentlessly
    • War against insurgents is like trying to become better; it is unconventional warfare
    • Get aggressive with your weaknesses
    • Know the end state
    • Anything that is worth achieving will take time
    • Lead from the front
    • Do not let your fear of failure limit your boldness and experimentation
    • You learn more from your mistakes
    • Take rest when you need it but no longer than what you need
    • Do not take today off; push through today, rest tomorrow
    • Do not try to be better than others; make yourself better, and others better
    • Build relationships of high trust
    • You cannot set records on a daily basis
    • Once you have achieved one goal, move on to another; do not become complacent
    • There are endless ways to develop physical conditioning; become versatile
    • Step back, look around and evaluate
    • When you step back you can see everything
    • Emulate the best aspects of others
    • Discipline is an internal force
    • External, imposed discipline will not survive
    • What you need is self-discipline
    • It comes from a decision to be better
    • If you think you are not disciplined, it is because you have not decided to be disciplined
    • Discipline will make you free
    • Get after it
