Highly anticipated new book shows how embracing discomfort enables winning on the battlefield, in the boardroom, and in life
WASHINGTON DC , UNITED STATES , December 4, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s a question that has been asked for centuries: What are the real lessons of war? And can those lessons be applied away from the battlefield? Jason Van Camp and his team of Special Forces combat veterans not only answer it, but relay lessons learned under fire to show you how: By embracing adversity and getting comfortable being uncomfortable.
Follow Mr. Van Camp’s journey as a new Special Forces leader searching for leadership lessons amongst some of the most decorated combat veterans in the military. Hear from Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg about how his training prepared him to tackle a suicide bomber. How fellow MOH recipient Leroy Petry’s never-surrender mentality gave him the strength to grab an enemy grenade and throw it, losing his hand but saving his teammates’ lives. Together, the stories in Deliberate Discomfort paint a picture of how others’ extreme circumstances and life or death situations are learning experiences we all can apply to our lives.
Mr. Van Camp attended and played football at West Point before earning his U.S. Army Ranger and Special Forces tabs. Major Van Camp then served as a Detachment Commander with 10th Special Forces Group, deploying multiple times to war zones in the Middle East and Africa, receiving three Bronze Stars, one with Valor.
Now for the first time, he’s sharing the stories of these twelve highly decorated combat veterans and relating their experiences to personal and business relationships.
Deliberate Discomfort: How U.S. Special Operations Forces Overcome Fear and Dare to Win by Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and wherever books are sold, with a release date of February 18th, 2020.
