#342 The SEAL Who Killed bin Laden: Robert O’Neill on Fame, Jealousy, and PTSD

US Navy SEAL veteran, Robert O'Neill (Success Through Failure episode 342: The SEAL Who Killed bin Laden: Robert O’Neill on Fame, Jealousy, and PTSD)A decade ago, US Navy SEALs went on a mission of a lifetime: to kill the most wanted man in the world— Osama bin Laden. One of them stood face-to-face with the bin Laden. And then finished the job. 

Robert O’Neill is one of the most decorated and recognized US service members for killing the world’s most wanted man, Osama bin Laden.

Because of his courage in combat, Rob is a sought-after public speaker, author, and advocate for veterans.

He is also the bestselling author of “The Operator: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior.” Following its success, Rob, and his co-author Dakota Meyer, have released “The Way Forward: Master Life’s Toughest Battles and Create Your Lasting Legacy”— which I had the privilege of reading in advance of its release (spoiler alert, it is phenomenal!).

“The Way Forward” presents Rob and Dakota’s philosophy in combat and life. This isn’t a book about the glory of war and combat, but one about facing your enemies, some who are flesh and blood and some that are in your mind— your doubts, your boredom, and your regrets.

In this episode, Rob takes us back to the historic mission in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the many facets of that he and his team had to handle right after the successful raid— from salutes and jealousy to his personal battle with PTSD. Tune in now.
