Life is mostly mental,
Surprisingly, so is war
Train your mind like a Marine
You’ll accomplish so much more.
You’ll never think it can’t be done
Not if you’re a Marine,
Success will surely follow you
If you paint a victory scene.
A good plan now is better than
A great plan arriving later,
Marines refuse to hesitate
For swiftness is a facilitator.
A Marine’s guiding rule in combat:
Assess, adjust and act,
Things change at the speed of sound
Flexibility’s their winning tact.
If you treat life like a Marine
Your credo’s a winning one
Living by “Semper Fi,”
You’re “faithful” ‘til life is done.
