In Navy Seals training you can always do this - but there is the shame!

Let me correct you on something. The Navy Seal program is not for everyone. All candidates must score high on a rigorous academic entrance test. The physical test is really tough. I did not qualify to be a Navy Seal. The Seal training is 6 months of pure hell; this training makes Parris Island look like a picnic.

Parris Island a picnic? I gotta see this!

What is wrong with you? Parris Island is not a picnic but when compared to the Navy Seals program, it is like a walk in the park. Get it?

Yeah, but anyone qualifies to get in the door (The Marines) at least.

Do the Seals accept anyone at the start?

Not everyone qualifies to be a Marine. There are requirements.

1. Good score on the ASVAB.

2. You must be physically fit.

The Navy Seals cannot accept everyone and anyone. They expect all candidates to give 110% in all they do. This is easier said than done.

Both of these endeavors start in the mind, the body is next. It's the same with body building.

Also, stuff like Survivor is the same.

The point, though, is these guys aren't supermen, they're just average guys - but they some sort of mental mastery. Also, I haven't seen nothing different about the winners on Survivor, aside from they are mentally tougher.

Ask Mark. I know that going through BUDS is hell on earth.

I've only seen videos of the training, and I know I never had what it takes physically to be a Navy Seal.

RTC was hard enough for me. I never had enough motivation in me to join BUDS.
