Deliberate Discomfort has a lot of positive and true leadership lessons and tips. It is a Leadership Book that every Leader or “Trainee Leader” (for lack of a better term) should read. There are leadership and life lessons that I will definitely keep with me through my life and career.

Ron RiveraNFL Head Coach, Carolina Panthers

Jason led a very impactful seminar with our players and coaches. The principles he taught and the instruction we received are all found in his game changing book. He empowered our players and coaches to embrace adversity and grow through our challenges. We learned the importance of persistence and resilience. He taught us the value of mental toughness and maintaining composure through emotional intelligence. We were instructed on leadership, and how to hold ourselves and teammates accountable through trust and respect. We found his expertise in the areas invaluable.

Rick SpielmanGeneral Manager, NFL’s Minnesota Vikings

Spending a week with Jason on Mt. Kilimanjaro, his gravitational pull as a leader is humbly, unmistakably evident. He could easily rest on the laurels of his decorated athletic and military career, but he consistently chooses growth over stagnation. He’s made it a point to embrace discomfort in his life for that very reason. There’s no better man to curate anecdotes of mental toughness and perseverance than Jason.

Chris LongNFL Defensive End, NFL’s Man of the Year

Explosive. Emotional. Epic. I am eternally grateful that our country produces men and women heroes like these in this book. I am proud to be an American! I've already recommended this book to my friends, family, and business clients because Jasons' message of getting comfortable being uncomfortable resonates with me so much! Jason has a unique storytelling ability. Combined with the insights of his scientists, the real-life practical application of his clients makes this a rare book that can be read, understood, and implemented by anyone that wants to succeed in these challenging times.

James LawrenceThe Iron Cowboy (50 Ironmans in 50 days in 50 states)

Jason Van Camp has done a magnificent job of capturing the “HOW” Green Berets thrive in uncertain circumstances when they are being forced outside their comfort zones. Special Forces is a climate where creativity is encouraged, asking questions is mandatory, and adapting to unconventional circumstances is an everyday task. Green Berets are successful not because they are the fastest, the strongest, or the toughest, they are successful because their leaders must have the highest levels of trust in their soldiers, and the soldiers have the highest level of trust in the leaders. Read on so you can understand what I mean by “TRUST”.

Jeff Kirkham(Green Beret (Ret.)), Black Rifle Coffee Company, Readyman, RATS Tourniquet, Best Selling Author Black Autumn

Straight up authentic. For anyone that has ever wanted to overcome fear and do more in their life, Jason Van Camp has a powerful message: DO IT. He doesn't just tell you to do it, he shows you how to do it. I have a renewed appreciation for the power of the human mind to dare to win.

Rob RiggleActor/Comedian & Lt. Colonel, USMC RET.

Blunt and Inspiring. This is a powerful book that tackles a touchy subject; yet does not offend. It provides us an enlightened path which challenges us to break free of the chains that you unknowingly place on yourself and embrace discomfort! You have nothing to lose but your own misery.
