Your weekly roundup of motivation and news, 4/30/21

I haven’t shared a blogpost in a while, so I thought I’d share a summary of motivation and (mostly) military news for you all.

I’ve been posting much of these on Twitter, but since most of you probably don’t live on Twitter, these will probably be new to the vast majority of you all. (You can click on any link and go to the website; not Twitter. So, you don’t need to have Twitter to view the articles linked to below.

Please feel free to share this with your friends or on Facebook.

“People who wonder if the glass is half empty or full miss the point. The glass is refillable.” – Unknown

“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” — Jim Rohn

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all.” – Thomas J. Watson

“Don’t expect immediate success. Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” — Napoleon Hill

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” – Babe Ruth

On the story above, regarding the Iranian fast attack craft, I made the following comment: “68 yards?!?! Way too close. They shouldn’t be coming within 500 or a 1,000 yards. And even that is pushing it.”

Again, feel free to share, send me an email, say hello below in a comment, or you can even send a message by pigeon if you want. I try to respond to all correspondence.

Semper Fidelis,

Stan R. Mitchell


About me: My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I write fast-paced mysteries and thrillers. To date, I’ve written ten books and been really fortunate to have sold more than 70,000 books. If you’re one of those readers, thank you.

Some of my favorite authors and influences are Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, Robert B. Parker, and Stephen Hunter. If you enjoy reading them, then more than likely you’ll enjoy my writing.

Writers are crazy, and I’m crazier than most.
