Just got back from taking the initial steps towards the challenge contract at my local recruiter's office. I can't express the excitement and motivation that hit me as soon as I walked out the door...to know that I'm working towards something so incredible and that I want it so bad I would do anything imaginable to reach it is such an immensely powerful feeling that I can't express it in words. It's almost as if time stops, everything else is forgotten and nothing else matters except accomplishing the goal of becoming a SEAL. Not many people know what that feels like and I had to post this thread to get some insight from others in this forum on what motivates them and how you all feel when that inspiration overwhelms you and, if just for a moment, the sense of clarity is so strong that everything you've ever been through is validated and you realize your purpose on this earth. Looking forward to the first response. Thank you all.
Nothing else matters
