Anyone Can Be Empowered To Lead – Just ask a Navy SEAL


I am Ron White, Two Time USA Memory Champion, memory training expert and memory keynote. I would like to share with you some of the things I learned about Leadership from my good friend and trainer, T.C. Cummings – A Former Navy Seal. This information, and other excellent points on Leadership, can be found in my memory training seminars and “Mind Like A U.S. Navy SEAL” program. First of all I would like to say – Anyone can be a leader! It does not take any special education, or physical attributes. Some are born to lead, with qualities of a leader already encrypted in their DNA. Others can learn it, and develop leadership skills with just a few key lessons to practice.

Distractions Will Derail You From Your Goal Says a Former Navy SEAL


Two Time USA Memory Champion, memory training expert and memory keynote speaker Ron White would like to share with you some of the things I learned while training for the U.S. Memory Championship, and is now available in my memory training seminars. What we have learned from our first lesson in the “Think Like A Seal” series is to look at things with “Hard Eyes – Soft Eyes,” which means we look at the big picture (Soft Eyes) and then zone in on the details (Hard Eyes). If we are to complete our mission, or goal, we need to focus on what we want as the end result (target), taking in the big picture as well as the details.

Take A Chill Pill like a Navy SEAL


Two-Time USA Memory Champion; memory training expert, and memory keynote speaker Ron White shares his thoughts on taking time out to distress and walk away from a problem in order to solve it. As a memory expert, I can attest to the fact that no mind, no matter how extraordinary, is capable of solving every problem immediately. We are distracted by problems that come up on a daily basis, and the stress mounts with each distraction that is ignored. It is how we deal with these distractions that make us or break us.

Training for the USA Memory Championship


Ron White memory expert reveals why he would go swimming in 33 degree weather to train for the USA Memory Championship: After my win in the 2009 USA Memory Championship the story of me training by memorizing cards under water spread like wild fire. I would train under water because the theory was I would have to deal with the distractions of floating in the water, breathing through a snorkel tube and the cold water.

My Second Memory Tournament


With the experience of 2008 behind me I was not focused on becoming the national memory champion. It is no secret that I am proud to be an American and to represent my country in the national tournament for my sport was an enticing idea. My strategy sessions for the 2009 tournament began about two months after the 2008 tournament in May of 2008. My first order of business was to email David Thomas (the former Guinness Record Holder for memorizing pi to 20,000). When I had met David a few months prior at the 2008 USA Memory Championship he said he was willing and ready to share his 'unbeatable' strategy for the tournament with anyone who would listen but no one had ever taken him up on the offer. I certainly wasn't above asking for help and I did just that by emailing David.

Stress, Anxiety and Your Memory


I am not going to suggest to you must avoid being stressed, after all it is part of being alive. With that said, you must learn to manage the stress effectively or your memory and health will be shot. If you have a high level of stress over a long period of time it can hurt your brain function in a major way. When you are stressed your body releases a hormone called cortisol.

I had picked TC up at his hotel earlier in the day as he was visiting my town of Dallas/Fort Worth.  After a few hours of driving he pointed out the window and stated, ' That is where a lake is right?'  There was no way that he could have seen the lake and I [...]


Easy To Be Hard – Hard To Be Smart


If you described a SEAL as hard, he would take that as a compliment and most likely agree. Hard in terms of being a SEAL means that he is strong mentally and refuses to accept mediocrity. He has attained a level of mental toughness grasped by only a few. His mind views pain as weakness [...]

Bring Your Own Weather


As a SEAL you will find yourself in frigidly cold waters, muddy grass that you will call a bed or jogging with enough weight in gear that would halt the legs of mere mortals to a crawl. In BUDS, the difference between the men who will become SEALS and those who will ring the bell [...]

Train in stress


The worst enemy to your memory or one of the worst is stress. When you are stressed you will not be able to focus and a lack of focus will kill your memory. When I trained for the USA Memory Championship I hired a former US Navy SEAL, TC Cummings. TC taught me a quote he learned in the SEALs, ‘the more you sweat in times of peace the less you bleed in times of war.'
