Extreme ownership is k-selection and k-selection is extreme ownership. Your response to this concept is a Rorschach test that will reveal your phenotype. Choose your feelings wisely. Are you willing to do what it takes to win?
In SEAL training they tried swapping out all the leaders of the best teams with leaders of the worst—the formerly losing teams won and the winning teams dropped to mediocre. When placed in difficult training challenges it was the leader’s attitude that determined which team won. When a leader blames everyone but himself his followers do the same and there is no improvement. Loser team members blamed everyone but themselves! When a leader takes responsibility his followers do the same and everyone improves. Winning teams had leaders that owned everything.

The blame for the West’s collapse therefore rests solely on the Alpha males by definition. The more admiration you command, the more power you wield, and the better you have it, the more responsibility you bear for the degeneracy around you. Are you an Alpha? A Sigma? A genius? Extraordinary in some way? A good person? Just a bit better than average?
Not fair? Doesn’t make sense? Tell it to Jesus while he hangs on the cross for YOUR sins. Or stop being a little bitch, shut the fuck up, and take up your cross. If there’s anything good in you, YOU are the problem and it’s your job to turn this society around.
The line between good and evil runs down the middle of every heart. YOU have to choose. YOU have to change. YOU must act.
You, the leader, are responsible for EVERYTHING! You are responsible for any action of your team. Good or bad. (Share credit for successes, but accept full responsibility for failures.) Leadership is the single greatest factor in team performance. Don’t blame your team! If your team fails, make a list of what YOU will do differently in the future.
There is no cavalry coming to save us. We are the cavalry. And you know what? We’re going to win this thing, with or without you.
Happy Current Year faggots ;-).
