U.S. Navy SEAL Creed

Posted in Uncategorized  |  18 Comments

At JustSell, we don’t feel business and selling are analogous to battle and war. In fact, business and selling might be more enjoyable if fewer people had this attitude.

Regardless, challenges exist and we believe the necessary attitudes and characteristics to overcome these challenges are similar to some of those required of our military personnel (only we never have to risk making the ultimate sacrifice).

Let the U.S. Navy SEALs inspire you.

    I recently read an excerpt from “The Power of Positive Doing” by BJ Gallagher stating that Action (always – my word) Alleviates Anxiety. As for personal application, ‘When in doubt, make a decision and do something . . .’
    Thanks for the stark reminder that no matter how challenging the scenario, it’s better to control one thing to the best of your ability (effort) versus do nothing (idleness) and settle . . .
    Respectfully,

    “Assume a virtue and it is yours”

    I will never be a Seal but am glad that they have high standards.
    As we all should have in the sales “profession”.

    As a former Naval Seal, I am not offended. Getting The Creed message out to whatever audience only brings awareness of the life and honor this men and women serve. We serve/d to preserve the way of life and profession every American chooses to lead. So I say, GO Sell something but do it to the best of your ability.

    Ignore the critics… stay the course. This is for the warrior spirits who in another life would be humbled by the honor to participate.

    We need not burn the daylight, and go live a life pleasing to God.

    God Bless America and the motivating and inspiring will to improve. God Bless!

    Very strong approach to one’s comittment to his work. If all sales reps take similiar approach as our proud Navy Seals do, our economy and way of way will turn around. Very insporatioanal. Thanks for highlighting this great creed. Grant

    I’M IN SALES – A FEW YEARS AGO I HAD JURY DUTY – THE DEFENDANT ACTED AS HIS OWN ATTORNEY / WE SAT THERE FOR 2 WEEKS AS I SAW MY PIPELINE FIZZLE – WHEN IT WAS OVER, MY BOSS ASKED WHY I DIDN’T “JUST GET OUT OF IT” – I SAID “KEN, IF THE PRICE OF MY FREEDOM IS SERVING JURY DUTY OR VOTING IN AN ELECTION – I’LL GLADLY DO IT”

    CERTAINLY THE SEALS PAY THE ULTIMATE PRICE, FOR THEM “FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION” THEY EMBODY THE BEST OUR NATION HAS TO OFFER !

    I respect Joe’s perspective, but I must humbly disagree… “Go sell something” is a call to action….an action that may be minuscule compared to the amazing dedication of our military men and women, but inspired by them non the less.
    If they can do the work they do and keep their commitment to excellence in the face of constant danger, while risking life and limb….how much can we do as sales people, knowing that all we have to do is pick up the phone or go visit a potential client…..All we are risking is a “NO”

    I am grateful for and inspired by our military and the creed the live by and I don’t feel that it is in anyway disrespectful to add our creed at the end of theirs.
    They live by a creed….and so do we.
    They strive for excellence…and so do we.
    They must be the very best at what they do to survive…and so must we!!

    God Bless our Service men and women and thank you for your awesome example!!!

    It would be hard for me to believe that the statement “Now go sell something” is offensive to a former or an active Navy SEAL…

    Richard “Dick” Marcinko has written a few books over the years and I recommend the read on the following listed below.

    Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior: A Commando’s Guide to Success
    The Rogue Warriors Strategy for Success

    HOOYAH!

    Now Go Sell Something!

    ” My husband has trained some of the Seals at Coronado. They are men and women…”

    Currently and in the past, only males are allowed to serve in SEAL teams.

    NOW, GO SELL!!!

    This is a selling website and the pieces posted on here (like the Seal Creed) are motivational in nature. I am a combat vet and did not take any offense to the “Go and Sell” comment. Just my opinion though. Regardless, this email serves a reminder for the men and women who are serving our country and the sacrifices they render on a daily basis. God bless our service members and the U.S.A.!

  15. Kelly Roeder says:

    “Now go sell something” was not offensive to me but quite the opposite. The way I look at it, If these courageous men and women do what they do with such commitment and honor, then as sales people can’t we just do the little thing that we do with a fraction of the commitment? Selling something is so small in comparison to the work and dedication of others. The amount of whining and complaining I hear so often in the sales environment is so inconsequential when contrasted to what other people do in their professions. The ability to disagree and voice those opinions is thanks to the folks in our Armed Forces, so to them I give my most humble thanks.

    It is a very strong creed that defines our finest american fighting men and women. I am proud to be an american and support our military completely. I have a son who served 8 years in the Marine Corps and he is an outstanding individual. Instilled in him,I am sure, are the same ideals. We must vigilant in preserving our freedom and constiutional rights by supporting our troops in every way possible!

  17. Joe Stein says:

    I think your statement “Now go sell something” at the end of the creed is unnecessary and reflects poor judgement on your part. I think the Seals would tolerate you using excerpts of their creed to make motivational points, however, to place that statement at the end of the entire printed creed is disrespectful. I would think if you actually read the creed you woud realize that.

  18. Joyce says:

    I’ve never read the entire creed before. It’s of such a high standard; these soldiers are amazing. My husband has trained some of the Seals at Coronado. They are men and women of such honor and humility; we should all strive to imitate them in all that we do. More than anything, I am proud to be an American!
