I read that you had always wanted to play football in college and a top goal of yours was to win the Heisman Trophy.
Most people can't grasp what it's like both physically and mentally to be part of the team of SEALs. So here I was going into a situation where I was going to be in front of young men who had just finished the hardest military training on the planet and I had one platoon under my belt. When I first came up with came up with the concept, I was in my second trip in Afghanistan working for a big security company doing counter drug operations with the DEA, so we had gone into this compound in a particular area and we were trying to find this big smuggler, and I'm sitting there and I'm watching 30 kids in this compound with their animals right next to where they sleep, using the bathroom wherever. You speak a lot about the importance of self-confidence and you even include Self-Confidence in the title of your new book. I think the biggest thing is for people to realize that no matter how successful they are in life, everybody still needs new ideas. I recently received an email from my wifes’ work regarding a supposed grizzly bear attack in Alaska. The following (first two) pictures are of a guy who works for the US Forest Service in Alaska and his trophy bear. I’ll dig up the info for you but the story has been quite twisted as its been around for quite some time. The first two photos are legitimate images of a giant grizzly brought down by a hunter in Alaska. Six months later, Sigfredo Casiano, was hiking in Alaska and had a similar experience with a large bear. If that weren’t bad enough, some joker along the line decided to embellish the story with a gruesome prologue, complete with photographic evidence.
For what it is worth, I remember that third photo was circulated on a website and that the site claimed it to be the result of a dog attack.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A man on a day hike in a rural area was killed when a bear bit his head, Alaska State Troopers said Wednesday.
Kenneth Cates, 53, was found Wednesday morning on a horse trail in a heavily wooded area of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge near his hometown of Soldotna.
Out of curiousity, what is the record for the biggest grizzly, and how big is the actual grizzly bear in the two legit photos?
The bear in the picture is supposedly as you mentioned: The bear was over one thousand six hundred pounds.
I had to go check this out at the truth or fiction site goto when wondering about some emails i recieve. The original pictures lacked the label linking them with hunting-pictures, but that is where the pictures reside. The version of the eRumor that claims the bear was a killer and was shot by a forest service employee are false.
Heres an update on the Worlds Largest Bear for all who continue to follow and seek the truth behind this story.
I recently watched a special on National Geographic and a portion of the show was dedicated to this very same bear and the actual hunter. In October 2001, a hunter legally shot a bear on Hinchinbrook Island off Alaska’s southern coast. If the bear sat down in a room with you, and was flat on his behind on the floor, and tipped it’s nose up, his head would be through a normal ceiling by about a foot or two. If you look at the vegetation in there it’s not quite tropical but it certainly is not Alaskan. That’s pretty terrible, I guess that blows the play dead technique out the window, that guy is dead! As noted from a television show on National Geographic with the actual hunter that killed the bear.
Dear ACTIVIST this bear is currently mounted and stuffed in the anchorage international airport in anchorage ak.
Stay out of deep woods and go to a resort to have fun ,deep woods are uncharted and you might not make it back. All I can add if there was this one you can be sure there are more and possibly larger than that one.

After all, this former Navy SEAL, who served eight years with responsibilities that included combat medic, operator and instructor, has taken his rigorous military training and passion for helping people and morphed these elements into his latest adventure, deploying it much closer to home -- as an author and motivational speaker -- helping people forge their self-confidence. When that didn't come to fruition, I read that you felt like you may have lost your purpose. What was your experience like, and, if you could give me a brief snapshot into a day in your life as a Navy SEAL, what did it look like? People hear, they see the bin Laden raid; they see what my friends just recently did in Benghazi.
I guess this seems like a fairly straightforward question, but I'm just curious; How did you find your path to becoming a motivational speaker, trying to help so many others? I got some good mentors, some good advice from some guys I really respected, and I recognized what I have always been good at; playing quarterback my whole life, being a captain of all the teams that I was on and all that, I was a motivator.
From the time we're little children, we're taught how to embrace fear because it's a protective mechanism for ourselves psychologically. We’ve pulled over the top 10 forum conversations that were not specific to future content areas which we will be posting.
He was out deer hunting last week when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away. Air Force Airman Theodore Winnen was deer-hunting on Hinchinbrook Island, Prince William Sound when he and his hunting buddy, Staff Sgt. Casiano claims he found himself about 10 feet from the animal when the beast started moving toward him. Admittedly l have to be honest l thought that there might be a hint of truth in some portion somewhere, but thought that in another area it wasn’t quite right.
The facts are a little different from the original eRumor, but the pictures do record the results of a true hunt and are real. They were posted by a hunter who used the nickname Dalliwacker but who is, according to published articles, Jim Urban. The hunter himself, pictured above, appeared on the show and offered some insight from his home. If this bear stood up, as reported in the web, it could be watching you take a shower on the second floor of your home. Bear experts took a closer look and discovered that, wherever this man died, it probably wasn’t anywhere near Alaska. If you actually read the article it says that the last picture wasn;t associated with the bear attack or even that bear or even that area of the country. And to all of you whom insulted the hunter, you really need to buzz off and mind your own business if you can’t keep your fowl mouth shut. If you think that is what Jesus Christ would say, then you understand the Bible very poorly. Rutherford, who was also part of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, is teaching civilians how-to be their best, by unlocking their true potential and combating their fears -- using the arsenal of lessons that he uncovered while a part of the SEAL teams. How did you end up finding your way, getting back on track, and what did you take away from the experience? People are like 'Well, where does this come from?' And so it's good to think about it in terms of the daily routine.
The needs of the Navy called and said, 'Hey, we need a medical instructor at SEAL Qualification Training,' which is now a 29-week program.
As we move forward, whether you're in grade school, middle school, high school, college, or whatever it is in your life, you develop this comfort-zone behavior that I describe. It came with three photographs, 1] displaying overall size of grizzly and hunter together, 2] displaying size of paw and 3] graphic portrayal of hiker practically eaten. The guy unloaded his 7mm Mag Semi-automatic rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. His first shot brought the bear down, but he fired several more shots, probably to make sure.
The confusion was frustrated by National Forest Service officials who mistakenly identified the photos to be from Casiano’s story. He says that the bear was actually ten feet high and weighed between 1,000 and 1,200 pounds. According to the internet, the last man eaten by the giant bear, shot on Hinchinbrook Island.

They would soon learn that they could overpower any human, and would most likely maul anyone that tried to stop it digging through their garbage cans. So, I turned to that, and really dove into that, and after two years of doing it, I discovered this passion for teaching and this passion for inspiring humans. That protects those fears, so what fear really does is it's the greatest inhibitive factor we face in our lives because if you're afraid of something, you're not going to risk, you're not going to try.
In this case, the bear was a brown bear, not a grizzly, and between eight and nine feet tall. I had moved myself so far away from my friends who were still playing lacrosse (I originally got recruited to play lacrosse at Penn State) and just had isolated myself in this bout of depression because of never facing that goal and never going after it because I was too afraid to try and walk on the team. Meanwhile, they're spraying you down with freezing cold hoses, you have to jump in an ice bath, then you run a mile to chow, eat chow, run a mile back, get on the beach, do four hours of surf passage in 15-foot surf, then you come back, then you run a mile to chow, a mile back, then after that, you've got a two-mile ocean swim after that, then you run a mile to chow, a mile back, come back and then you get beat down by the instructor because you didn't do something right that day, so you've got surf torcher for an hour in the 58-degree water and then afterward, you finish up, you debrief with your class, then you've got to clean all your gear, shine your boots, press your uniforms and do it all the next day for the next seven months. So I went and became an instructor there, but when I went there, I was a one-platoon wonder and so your reputation in the SEAL teams is based on how many times you've gone overseas, how many deployments you have. Think about it, when you're training a human being to go run into combat, there's some massive psychological hurdles that need to be addressed in order to get a person to say, 'Who cares, I don't care what the enemy is bringing at me, I'm going to go straight into the face of it.' So, a part of that is forging their concept, their ideas and their self-confidence psychologically, and so I really honed in on that skill. So I stepped back for a minute and came home and began to do research about our country and at that time, in 2006, teenage girls suicide rates were spiking, the obesity thing had finally made it to the forefront of the news and really saw this dramatic shift in the way our children were growing up and I was like, 'I've got to do something here.' So what I did was I extrapolated eight core concepts that I used pulling myself out of that abyss in college, making it through those unbelievable days in SEAL training and in the SEAL teams and I figured out what the eight missions that people need to do everyday to forge their self-confidence.
Effectively cloaked by their camouflage hunting gear, the pair had plenty of time to take their shot. So it was in April of 1995, I woke up one Sunday morning and, you know, I didn't have a glass of Jack Daniels to wake up with, I didn't roll out of bed with a bad attitude. Don't you think the millions of people being affected by the storm [Hurricane Sandy] need to forge their self-confidence moving into this event? The first bullet from Winnen’s 338 Winchester pierced the brain, but it took five more in the chest to bring him down. You never wake up with the intention, 'All right, I'm to go get in front of hundreds, thousands of people a year and motivate them to be better human beings.' You don't just say that, especially coming from being a SEAL.
So, as I reach out to people, I say, 'Listen, just because you're a successful human being, you need to still project yourself and look for new ways to forge your self-confidence, and if it's not with my book, do it with something else.' And once you do that, commit your life to living the team life because we need people who have heart and self-confidence right now because we live in a world with a lot of fear. The first two photos above were taken by Urban and were posted on several hunting boards and shared among hunting enthusiasts. And so I had this mountain of piled-up clothes, like I hadn't done laundry in months, and I went to the laundry mat and simply put my stuff in and I'm sitting there and I'm just watching it go round and round and round and I was hit with an epiphany. People think, 'Oh, once you get through the training, it's easier.' It's the complete antithesis of that. So, with the fear that we have, we learn how to give it different meanings or different ideas or mold it, so it's not so intrusive into our lives.
So, reach out around you, find that person who you care about and pick them up, help them forge their self-confidence and we'll start developing a pretty radical team around these parts.
When you get to the teams, you're pushing yourself harder and faster and doing more unbelievable things.
And I don't have a story in a specific environment like Marcus Luttrell with his book, Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 , and him surviving that one particular episode or that last book that came out, No Easy Day, and his experience on the bin Laden raid. So, as you get older and you develop these comfort-zone behaviors, we find these creative and less invasive ideas to implant in our head to protect that fear.
My second one was, at the time, I had this fascination for Harley-Davidson and tattoos, so I was like, all right, 'I'm going to move out to LA, I'm going to get a tattoo apprenticeship and I'm going to join the Hells Angels.' I figured in terms of the lifestyle trajectory I was on, I probably would have been dead in about six months, so I was like that's probably not a good thing.
A typical training operation is you plan for two days, prep your gear, you get on a C-130 with your rubber boats, fly out over the ocean, push the boats out, jump in the middle of the night, chase them, drive 70 nautical miles over the horizon, rendezvous with a 140-foot Cutter, put your boats on the Cutter, plan for a 12-hour cycle, get off, drive 120 nautical miles back over the horizon, put on your dive apparatus, do a five hour-dive, rendezvous with a local guard force, get weapons, assault a target for five hours, recuperate hostages, put them on aircraft, go back, debrief and then clean all of your gear and then get ready to do it again in a few days.
The third one was to join the military and to pursue this truth that I recognized that self-confidence is everything and being a part of a team had really given me all the things in my past to be successful. What I do have is -- I do have a profound understanding of the human mind and how it needs to be motivated to face great adversity. So, in that moment, I basically decided to join the navy and join the SEAL teams, which, in essence is the pinnacle of self-confidence and living the team life. And that's why Froglogic, and what I do is, I try and give a snapshot of that in a way where people who are civilians can understand and employ that mindset.
