I've learned a TON about myself, the TRUE meaning of TEAM, quitting, being mentally tough and succeeding in life and business during the past year than I have in a lifetime. It's been an amazing evolution as I learn more and more each day in my efforts to become a better person.
I immersed myself in learning and getting out of my comfort zone. Much of that immersion came from Mark Divine's SEALFit and working closely with my friends and former SEALs; Quatro Deuce and Brad McLeod.
It's amazing how the training I went through leading up to the first ever 20X Challenge.
For the most part, we live lives of ease and comfort. If you're reading this from a computer or iPhone, life must not be that bad. Right?
This is an AMAZING speech about achieving success, NOT quitting and kicking ass ALL day.
HUGE thanks to Richard "Mack" Machowicz for sharing these videos. Unfortunately, "Mack" is no longer with us but his message of NOT Dead, Can't Quit lives on.

QOD (Question Of The Day): What did YOU learn from these 2 videos?
I won't BS you, I know that achieving goals is tough, especially when the people around you (sometimes the closest people in your life) are negative and always bringing you down.
These videos are for YOU.
More to come.
Looking forward to your comments.
If you've got the NDCQ attitude, step up and push yourself physically, as TOUGH physical training is a special place where you can and will develop a winning attitude and mindset.

#1 – As long as I’m alive I have the CHOICE to SUCCEED!
#2 – Only DEATH can keep you from your goals!
That’s some SERIOUS sh*t that people fail to realize.
ALWAYS a BIG Thanks for sharing Z!
That was one of the most profound and deep speeches I have ever heard…thank you for sharing, outstanding, life changing if you let it…
Loved them Zach. ‘Mack’ is an amazing man of many talents and has so much to share if people will just truly listen. Learned what it means to be a ‘Team’, to put your own issues on the backburner and do whatever needs to be done to get the job done. Quitting is not an option. NDCQ!!!!

Great post Zach! His chant is similar to my mantra. Last breath last beat of my heart I will not quit. When I feel like taking it easy or skipping a workout it pushes me.I had to laugh at the “at me” in team. I tell my boys there is no I in team but there is an m and e which spells me. In a team situation. It is you that can change and help the team. Don’t rely on assistance “YOU do what no one else is willing to do. That will make you great. Do what others will not do.
being great is not easy but nothing of worth is easy.
Kicka$$ speech! It’s not what car you drive or what house you live in, its how you shows up when people need you most. That’s for real. We all gotta remember that. How many times do we make excuses or give up? Lets drop the BS and start showing up for each other. Not dead, can’t quit!
Zach – that is a helluva speech. It touched me deep down inside. Actually what he is talking about is life – it’s life, man! If you look at animals they have that “not dead, can’t quit!”-attitude. All the time. Why? Because this is life and you’re here to earn it. No more, no less.
Unfortunately many of us’ve forgotten that. Thx for sharing. So powerful,…

Great post! Very motivational and speak the honest truth how people should live their lives. It made take a deeper look on my life and how I can become more like him. Thanks for post this up Zach!!
WOW! I’ve checked out other SEAL, and Warrior stuff that you’ve posted before. I’ve never been more inspired to be a solid man, than I am after listening to this man speak. That’s real! I love it!
NDCQ!!! from a former Marine, I don’t think anyone could say what Mack said any better! If everyone could get a fraction of his message into their hearts we’d be that much better of a nation (US) and world. Die to self and find a bigger cause than ourselves, then give it 100%!
Zach, thanx for sharing, these videos are great. if you have not read Mack’s book “Unleashing the Warior Within” drop everything and go buy it right now, i know you will really dig it!!
