    Tee Hee - Gremlins - SAS Training

    Post  Dads Army on Fri Jun 25, 2010 9:36 am

    This is an extract out of the NZ Army SAS - Completing SAS Training...

    By Captain Alexandrina Bojilova, NZSAS psychologist

    "Over the years I have come to realise that what motivates some, can be detrimental to others. Hence, all I can do for you is tell you the stories of those who have attempted selection; signal some of the self-defeating thoughts to look out for; tell you about some of the thought processes of those who have completed selection and hope you’ll get to test the substance of these bits of knowledge yourselves. So here are a few tips on how to fight the “gremlins” of self-doubt, hunger and physical pain based on the stories of those who have attempted selection.

    The gremlins are examples of your self-preservation instinct working at its best. The gremlin of hunger tells you that if you don’t stop, you will starve yourself to death; the gremlin of pain tells you that if you don’t withdraw voluntarily, the discomfort you feel in your knee now will become a life-long injury; the gremlin of self-doubt tells you that serving with the SAS is not for you; and the gremlin which creates excuses in your mind, telling you that your “Mrs” will hate living in Auckland, that attempting selection was only your mates’ idea all along and you never really wanted it.

    The first gremlin we typically see during selection is that of anxiety and self-doubt. We often see it emerge in the interview during pre-selection when candidates appear nervous and start telling us reasons why they are not well prepared or how their alternative options are also quite appealing. Often we can see anticipation and self-doubt mounting to a cloud of self-distractive anxiety and candidates say to us “all I want is to start selection and get it over with.” Some candidates shut themselves off, go into their heads and run themselves through what they think selection will feel like. Then, we may see fit, motivated, intelligent men come to the first day of selection and ’blow it’. They have ‘broken’ themselves before they even got to the start line because the anxiety and mental self-destruction has eaten away at their precious pool of adrenaline."


    CHEEERS and CHEERS for gremlins!
