how to be disciplined, it's something I can apply to all aspects of my life

Working as a team and holding yourself accountable.

The biggest life lesson I learned from joining the military was that there is no one way to do things. Every situation is different and you have to be able to adapt quickly in order to survive. This has been invaluable in my civilian life as well.

Joining the military has taught me countless life lessons, but the biggest one has to be patience. In the military, you have to be able to deal with long periods of waiting and inactivity. This can be frustrating at times, but it has taught me how to better control my emotions and stay calm under pressure.

The biggest life lesson I have learned from joining the military is that there are consequences for my actions. When I joined the military, I knew that I was signing up for a job that would require me to be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice if needed. I also knew that I would be held to a high standard and would need to be disciplined in order to meet the expectations of my superiors. I have found that this discipline has carried over into my civilian life, and it has helped me to be successful both professionally and personally.

Contrary to what they say, weapons are not to protect anyone, but to attack. And that is why they should be regulated.

That it is important to be humble and to never take anything for granted. I have learned to be grateful for the opportunities that I have been given, and to always put others before myself.
