GET NAKED!: 5 Reasons Why You Need to Be the Navy SEAL of Your Life 

GET NAKED! is the theme of this US Navy SEAL veteran, William Branum, and in his business, Naked Warrior Recovery. Being a Navy SEAL veteran for 26 years, he came up with an idea from his experience being in the military to bring it into businesses that he consults. He trains people to GET NAKED! by dismissing their flaws and egos to be the Navy SEAL of their lives to become better people. 

His company is also a CBD company triggered by his experience with CBD, which caused mental stress, anxiety, sleep disorder. He empowers veterans who also suffered from the same struggles he had faced. Starting his own business was nothing out of the ordinary for William, since entrepreneurship was triggered by his ability to solve technical issues in his last three years in the navy. 

What makes him unique in his business is that he is helping others get out of situations he previously experienced. Also, he strives to make the CBD business different by using the best CBD broad-spectrum products in the industry.

Why You Need to be the Navy SEAL of Your Life

NAKED is an acronym with five core principles guiding one on how to come out as a warrior from mental and overall life baggage. It helps one grow and be better.

  • Never Quit

If you are going to do something, you need to do it to its complete and up to its fullest. Life can be difficult, but you need to face it with determination and optimism. You will need to be consistent to grow and eventually become the person you want to be. You will also have had lessons to help you take more control of your life.

  • Accept Failure

In this roller coaster of life, failure is not an option. So you are surely going to have some challenges. The best way to handle it is to accept it and learn from it. Failure will help you reevaluate your plans for the best. The greatest successes are built on a foundation of failure. Each obstacle is a learning lesson. 

  • Kill Mediocrity

Human beings have a certain degree of mediocrity. You need to stop being mediocre and start being excellent in whatever you are doing. Be someone who will be pleased with changing something a couple of times to find excellence because this can be key to killing mediocrity. 

  • Exposure

Exposure is very adamant in building yourself and your business. Many do not venture because they are afraid of the anticipation of what could happen or what someone else might think. This act resonates well with mediocrity. If you have fear and anxiety, you could probably write it down or say it aloud. That way, you will take control of the situation. Bringing the fear out or exposing it allows one to control it. It would help if you step out there and explore your potentials and capabilities.

  • Do the Work

Doing the work isn’t easy, this is key to getting NAKED. Without hard work, this is not possible to achieve. You must put in the work to see the results. Write that email, go to the gym, and complete those tasks. Let go of all your insecurities and do the work.

It would help if you adopted the right mindset, created a habit for sustainability.

How William Branum Became the Navy SEAL of His Life

Getting out of the military for William was hard. In the military, he always knew what his mission was. Badass individuals surrounded him in a motivated team with a credible mission. Every morning, Branum knew what he was going to do, how he would do it, and what his team was going to do. He knew how to ask for help, but all of that was gone when he retired from the military. William had no mission, purpose, job, income, or idea. He went from being on top of the world to hitting rock bottom.

He had to use this mindset to build himself up again. He figured out how to GET NAKED!, how to expose himself, and how to face his fears. As a result, he has never been a quitter. He accepts the failures and learns from them. Additionally, he had to create a purpose after the military. 

To build a purpose, you will have to figure out what makes you happy. It would help if you tried out different things that are interesting to you and explore them. That way, you’ll be able to find your purpose.

You have to GET NAKED!, free from unnecessary pressure, egos, or masks. These are things that will hold you back.
