Being a Universal Soldier means to have a growth state of mind. A Universal Soldier is able to bring value & thrive at very high levels in any environment they are placed in because of their mindset, ability to think and adapt. A Universal Soldier does not rise to the level of the occasion, they rise to the level of their mental skills training.

Who is a Universal Soldier?
We are all Universal Soldiers to some degree. A true warrior lies within each of us. It is our responsibility to to tap our warrior and thrive at our highest capabilities. Whether you served in the military or not, everyone has a unique warrior trapped within them. This is especially important to know when it comes to both mindset development and personal transformation.
Furthermore, most people are at war with themselves and do not even know it. Most are at war with who they are versus who they can become. Who they are typically wins every time simply because of the mentality.
Stop going to war with yourself and develop a universal state of mind that allows you to be prosperous in every aspect of your life. Not just external prosperity, but internal prosperity as well. I believe we were all created to thrive and not just exist, but in order to thrive we must first master ourselves and our thinking. The degree to which you prosper internally, is the degree to which you prosper externally. In other words, if you want external success in your relationships, health, finances, etc., you must first be right internally.
