Jason Redman – http://www.jasonredmanww.com/about-2 – was his own worst enemy. Through a series of events, Redman had to confront the worst aspects of his personality to earn the respect of his team mates in the Navy SEAL community. Later, Redman would be severely wounded. He posted the sign pictured here on the door of his hospital room. He writes about his journey here – http://www.amazon.com/The-Trident-Forging-Reforging-Leader-ebook/dp/B00BATIMOG. Excellent book on leadership.
