The much fabled Hell Week in Navy SEALs BUD/S training helps each and every SEAL recruit find a number of essential qualities within. One of the most important is the fact that SEALs recruits find that they are able to let go of all of their mental inhibitions, telling themselves that they can push through all of the trials which are before them. Though it is very physically demanding, most SEAL recruits have problems pushing themselves through the training on a mental level.

If you have the dream of becoming a Navy SEAL, you must be prepared for a long strenuous process. You know that BUD/S training is going to be one of the roughest portions of your life.
