Way of the Warrior Kid
By Jocko Willink
Get ready to meet the man, the myth, the legend – Jocko Willink! Jocko is a former Navy SEAL, which means he’s basically a superhero. He’s the kind of guy who can run a marathon, do a thousand push-ups, and still have enough energy to save the world from evil villains. Okay, maybe not the last part, but you get the idea. When Jocko isn’t busy being a total badass, he’s writing books and helping people become their best selves. He’s like a coach, but cooler as he’s got a bald head and a big bushy beard. And if you ever need some motivation, Jocko’s got you covered. He’s the master of tough love – he’ll tell you to stop making excuses, wake up early, and get after it!
But don’t worry, Jocko’s not all serious all the time. He’s got a sense of humor too (even if it’s a little scary sometimes). In fact, he even has a podcast where he talks about all kinds of stuff, from war stories to leadership lessons to...wait for it...coffee! Yep, Jocko loves coffee almost as much as he loves discipline. So, if you’re ready to become a warrior kid and learn how to be your best self, Jocko’s your guy. Ready to start?
