Embrace the suck Why Everything's Awful In The Army And Why That's Good For You By Kiel Clenney

Attention, High Achievers!

The Absolute Simplest Way To Bullet Proof Your Mind And Live The Life You Want

You are just a few clicks away from becoming a more highly valuable, motivated, and a disciplined author of your own life.

Dear friend,

If you’ve struggled to be your true self…

If you have tried to keep your commitments…

If you have tried to give up your addictions…

If you have tried to do the hard things that you know you should do, but fail…

Then you're about to discover my secret sauce for continuing success:

I have written a book where you’ll discover what the army taught me and how to use it to lead your life on your own terms. 

I am committed to helping you become all that you can be.

My goal with this book is that you bulletproof your mind.
My ultimate goal is that you make solid steps before bed.
My dream is that you embrace the suck of life and thrive in it.
Are you sick of not measuring up?

  • You owe it to yourself to make an impact on the world
  • You owe it to yourself to become the best you can be.
  • You owe it to yourself to destroy the old you and recreate yourself.
  • You want to bring life and value into the world.
  • You want to make it a better place.
  • You want to raise your kids to not be awful people.
  • You envision yourself at your true potential by bringing your life and values to the world.

Everyone has an idea of how to be happy… but you want life tested tactics that make people want to be work with you and watch opportunities line up in your life.

This is why I wrote this book for us.

We have listened to a ton of advice from our peers and society at large. We are fed up with the dead

ends from people who knew as little as I did or the culture at large that manipulated us to

buying their crap that leaves us feeling empty or still searching for the answers.

Picture a life where people view you as a high-quality person. Someone to be trusted, desired and

listened too.

This is what happened to me.

What happened when I didn’t follow this model…

  • Failed to be a level headed son, husband, and father? Check.
  • Failed to get promoted? Check.
  • Failed to land my dream job? Check.

I now have the mindset to where life reacts to me, I do not react to life.

All the while improving my marriage, family, career, and lifestyle.

Since the age of 2, I have tried to forge my own path by declaring to my parents, “By self!”

I have never liked dependency or being within the system. 

Any system.

After years of trying to blaze my own trail, I developed a lot of bad mental habits.

Ignoring my parents and rejecting authority as long as I could… I enlisted in the Army in 2006.

The Army’s motto was Army of ONE.

I thought that was perfect for me. 

I am my own army!

It was actually an acronym for Officers, Non-commissioned officers and Enlisted. It was nothing more than the structure of the rank.

I took my civilian mindset of hard-charging and “by self” into the army with me and you know what?

It did not work.

I was in a world of hurt, alone in a crowd, and trying to find my way in a culture that thrives on punishment.


I was too stupid to listen to directions, too anxious to argue over every little thing and willing to stand for my convictions even if they were misplaced.

I realized quickly that I was missing a couple of things:

  • Humility
  • Listening skills
  • Reflection with implementation

The army pushed my failures into my face until I couldn’t see anything else.

Imagine being a stubborn, arrogant, and a know it all.

Picture the life of a man who wakes, eats, breathes, works, and sleeps missions and the outcome is you are wrong.

I needed to change. Quick.

For 2 years I threw myself completely into the army. I changed the way I received guidance. Instead of trying to prove it wrong, I grabbed what I thought was right.

And then I built on it.

Again, and again.

Until I had a built up a mindset that is bulletproof.

It is only limited by how much I implement these mind hacks!

"It was absolutely great! Loved the message and learned a lot from just reading the book."

- Ben Ochoa

"Reading this book made me relive some moments while in that unit. Kiel definitely put into detail of every single story and showed the lessons learned in then. I enjoyed this read and look forward to more."

- Mr. Break ‘Em Off, he is in the book.

After I learned how to Embrace The Suck everything changed.

You have all the skills you need to do this too!

You are able to think.

You can read.

You already make decisions every single day.

So why are you having an issue embracing the suck in your own life?

Is it, maybe, because you need a guide?

Your mindset has cost you money.

Your mindset has cost you relationships.

Your mindset has cost you time.

You can work to get the money back and you can try to fix the relationships…

But that time is GONE FOREVER!

Take off your mental chains, it is hard. I know, I had to.

The keys to those locks are:

1. Letting go of your PRIDE

Pride is the source of all our problems. Something bad happens and we are tempted to say, “Why me?”

Why not you? Why are you entitled to a life of ease and comfort? Were your parents living fat off the land? Or their parents?

My wild guess is no.

“These days a lot of people complain. They feel like life has been unfair and it’s their right to feel sorry for themselves.
@Kiel_Clenney has a book called Embrace the Suck. It’s about his time in the military and it gives life lessons. I loved it!”

- @1thebusinesskid Austin Arms via Twitter

2. Conquering your FEAR

Brass tacks, you are here because all your ancestors were successful. They survived the elements, wild animals, disease, war, and famine. You are naturally one of the best things nature has created.

It is time to start acting like it.

Conquering your fear is not ignoring it, it is looking at it in the eye and saying, “I see you.”

And then, doing what you set out to do. Live your life to the fullest!

“The journey of a young man trying to find his way is echoed through this book. Unlike other memoirs, this book stands out with actionable take-aways from Kiel's time in the military that you can apply to your own life immediately. Kiel wants to genuinely help you improve your life and by intertwining these lessons within his own stories and experiences, the book doesn't get preachy. Rather, enjoy it as a brother in life, trying to help you lift up your fortunes for the brighter future ahead.”

- Dave Moggio, Founder of La Touraine Watches

3. Know that life is MESSY

Human beings are beings, not doers.

A doer is someone who performs their function like a robot. Reliable, emotionless, and boring.

A being is some who is actively figuring it all out. Someone who isn’t afraid to get a little dirty while they find their way.

As long as you are striving to make the best choices, based on the information you have… you are the best human BEING you can be.

“Kiel has written an amazing book jam-packed with stories filled with life knowledge. He takes readers on a journey of triumph, success, failure, and just some flat out funny stories you can relate to. For anyone searching to bulletproof their mind, or level up their life... Read This Book.
1 chapter in and I couldn’t put it down...Kiel does a phenomenal job at capturing the readers imagination. I’ve never felt like I’ve watched a movie while reading a book but that’s EXACTLY how this book was written. The detail and imagery you experience is like a Hollywood movie.
My only question I have for Kiel is... when the hell does book 2 come out?!”

- Jesse Pistokache

Ever Since I Embraced The Suck…

My World Has Opened To Me.

I do not always get what I want, BUT I always get what I need.

I get what I need with a positive attitude.

This positive attitude attracts the people I WANT in my world.

My world grows every single day. 


I lead my life putting life and value at the center of everything.

People see how I lead my life, my mindset, and my trajectory…

They want to be a part of it, help me, or want me to help them.

It becomes a fishbowl of brotherly (sisterly) love and support.

All by changing your mindset.
