Where does the process of forging mental toughness begin?

So much of your success, no matter how you measure it, and no matter how you define it, comes down to making great decisions.

Decision-making is a critical skill. As our lives grow more complex, we’re faced with the challenge of making more decisions in less time. The bar hasn’t just been raised. It has changed… constantly moving in and out of clear view.

We need a special focus to see our world in a way that allows us to perform at our best. This doesn’t just doesn’t just happen. It demands daily, positive drive and unwavering commitment.

Your own burning desire to achieve more needs to be grounded in purpose, and can’t be built on compromised principles.

You need a why, and you need an integrated approach to your own development.

Bring Your Why To Carlsbad, California Nov 30 – Dec 2, 2018

My team will give you a three-day experience that arms you with a proven framework for achievement, focus, and the kind of clarity that only a handful of people will ever know.

You’ll be immersed in an environment where your mind starts to shift, and begins to become unbeatable through a combination of disciplines.

My 20 years of work as a Navy SEAL Commander, training thousands of special ops guys, is just one aspect of what you’ll get.

There’s Kokoro yoga, martial arts, neuroscience, breath control, and more.

Members of my Inner Circle will be at the retreat. It’s a core foundational element of their ongoing work.

I’d like you to be here too.

Together, we’ll identify the five mountains that must be scaled, and we’ll develop a plan so precise and so powerful that its results deserve the unbeatable status we assign it.

Along with members of my elite team, I’ll work with you for three remarkable days to help you create your own Unbeatable Mind.

What You Can Expect

I’m not telling you that these three days will be some kind of quick fix.

They won’t. You need ongoing daily training and practice. You need progressive development.

But you also need an accurately assessed starting point and a precisely defined direction.

That’s what the retreat is all about. Identifying the optimal way to move ahead that comes from an unprecedented level of self-awareness.

Knowing exactly where you are right now
means you can navigate your way forward with complete confidence.


The Unbeatable Mind Summit is where you turn off the noise, eliminate distractions, and focus on the specific mental and physical actions that will allow you to succeed at the highest level.

How high a level?

You are capable of 20X growth. We call this the 20X factor. It draws on proven principles and training techniques America depends on to prepare our most accomplished warriors.

To show you exactly how to achieve this level of performance, during our retreat you’ll be grounded in the fundamentals of…

The Five Mountains Method

We’ll spend a lot of time at the Unbeatable Mind Summit giving you a wealth of resources to help you scale the five mountains.

The first mountain is physical preparation… you’ll work on strength, stamina, work capacity, and more.

The second mountain is mental preparation… you’ll see for yourself how your level of mental toughness can soar, and the exact steps to train for it.

The third mountain is emotional control… you’ll start to clear out the blockages, discipline your mind to toss away negative baggage, and to be more perceptive.

The fourth mountain is awareness and intuition… for the SEALs I trained, awareness and intuition translated into critical survival skills. For you, they’re an incredible edge you can draw on daily.

The fifth mountain is spirit an unbeatable spirit. A way to pull everything together to achieve a sum total of daily work that makes the 20X factor achievable.

What You Need To Bring

Desire, belief, attitude, discipline, and determination.

I’m sure you’re familiar with each one of these character qualities.

What you might not know
is each one can be tapped into in an entirely different way.


You can draw newfound strength from each one. You can align these qualities to add an entirely new layer of power to your purpose.

These are the underpinnings of self-mastery we will explore together. They’re built on the back of 20 years of training SEALs.

If you know you are capable of doing more…

If you want to align your passion, and principles, and draw on their powers to move forward…

And if you are looking for an approach that is real…

Come join us in Carlsbad. Dive in with us and start to turn your intentions into achievements.

The mission of the team you’ll work with at the retreat is precise.

We’re going to unlock your potential, all of your potential,
and we’ll do it in a way that makes sure
you consistently do worthy things long after you’ve gone home.


There is no place else you can get this. No place else you’ll be able to do so much in just three days to make sure you will keep moving the dial every day for the rest of your life.

The Park Hyatt Aviara in San Diego’s North County is situated on a ridge overlooking the Batiquitos Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and the nearby Pacific Ocean. We have selected a refined and secluded location so we can focus on what needs to get done.

Not only will you get your mind in the right frame of mind, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to work on building up your physical mountain. Throughout the Summit, you’ll have the chance to experience KOKORO Yoga, a bodyweight workout and even a mini SEALFIT Beach WOD with our world-class, certified coaches and trainers. Each workout is scaled to accommodate all fitness levels.


Be part of The Unbeatable Mind Retreat and you’ll discover…

  • How to accelerate your growth… so you can shorten the distance between where you are and where you want to be.
  • How to make better decisions… in a world where the pace of change continues to accelerate, your ability to absorb information with speed and accuracy gives you a massive competitive advantage.
  • A better way to concentrate on the right things… fine tune the disciplined, selective focus that allows you to always move in the optimal direction. (The direction that will take you all the way to success.)
  • A breakthrough in breath control… discover one of the proven techniques to keep your mind riveted on the present. (This alone can be a life-altering practice.)
  • How to manage fear… you’ll see how to draw on the power of Kokoro, so the gap that is often the source of fear is identified and nailed shut.
  • The difference between focus and hyperfocus… our team will reveal advanced techniques to train your mind. Discipline yourself to absorb more of the information that matters, and to ignore what’s inconsequential.
  • How to identify and overcome weaknesses… a process you use again and again to close off openings and protect yourself from critical failures.
  • …and much, much more, featuring a special team, including Navy SEALs, who will reveal their own approaches to emotional resiliency.

For three days, you’ll be engaged mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

And you’ll be with a group of exceptional people, because nobody shows up for the retreat unless they’re on the same page you are.

You’re with people who are passionate, determined, and committed to a higher purpose.

There is nothing else like The Unbeatable Mind Retreat.

If you’re committed to performing at the peak of your abilities, there’s no place else you should be November 30th – December 2, 2018.

An Unbeatable Mind Changes Lives In A Profound Way

At last year’s retreat, we were privileged to welcome people from all over the world.

A financial analyst from Switzerland, a marketing manager from Canada, a medical doctor from North Carolina… a terrific group of people determined to accelerate their growth.


“I love the Unbeatable Mind Retreat. You get to talk to so many different people. You glean so much information. We hold each other accountable in a very positive way.

The impact on me has been life-changing. That’s why I want to go again. It was amazing. The best thing is being surrounded by like-minded people with energy and feed off of that.

Use it to close out one year and establish your positive plans for moving forward with the next year.”




“Mental focus is paramount to any success – realizing that it is a journey and it does not happen overnight. The fine art of kicking ass – is kicking your own ass and holding yourself accountable to goals set forth – own your day to own your life!

While you can read, write, and practice core concepts of the program and book, the benefit is connecting with people, validating perspectives, and diving into your plan with others.”




“loved the subject matter: fitness, personal development, hands-on exercise with like-minded people, great food, and cutting-edge science.”




“Q3 has been my most productive quarter-to-date both personally and professionally.

I achieved new PRs for many of my Olympic lifts. I am medication free for the first time in 20 years, have enhanced my relationship with my wife and daughters, and am currently involved in two major initiatives at the hospital. These will enhance our ability to manage the health of our patients, improve care, and lower our costs.

Over this past year, my executive team has become more cohesive, resilient to disruption, and focused on achieving our ONE THING.”




“I am an educational psychologist and mental health practitioner with over 20 years of experience in the field of behavioral assessment and change, as well as an endurance athlete.

Anyone who applies what Mark Divine lays out in his program will see real change and improvement happen across all of the different areas of their life.”


More Feedback From Last Year’s Unbeatable Mind Retreat

“Loved every minute. Hard to say what the best was… I’m still implementing the presentations. If one thing: self-mastery is a journey.”

“The boundaries between the professional, personal, and spiritual areas of our lives are artificial. Real congruence comes when our ‘work’ is having an impact in the world and is being done from a place of passion and love.”

“It cemented my understanding of the Unbeatable Mind training as a holistic system. I have incorporated tactical things from the various speakers for a positive effect in my life.”




As you can imagine, we limit the number of people who can be at the retreat.

We refuse to spread ourselves thin and dilute the impact.

This is why it’s important for you to raise your hand and commit now.

Our goal is not to pack a lot of people into seats. Our goal is to pack a lot of high value information into three rewarding days.

Don’t expect to be sitting in your seat all the time. You’ll be participating physically as well as mentally.

You’ll be working on the plan that will guide you through 2019, and for years to come.

Your time is now.

Because you appreciate the value of a proven, integrated approach to your progressive development, you know how vital it is to select the absolute best starting point.

That’s the why of our retreat, and it’s why you need to be with us.

Please make plans right now to be in Carlsbad, California. November 30th – December 2nd, 2018.
