She admits the lessons she learned from the military in leadership and work ethic guided her career as a journalist to become one of the top hosts on FOX News.

In the book
Now she has come to share the lessons she learned in her military upbringing. She advises the readers on how everyone can incorporate them into their own lives for better outcomes. She explores the factors of her success such as courage, duty, patriotism, and responsibility.
“[T]hey choose certain people for certain missions. And I think in life that’s how we have to be. We become like the five people we spend most of our time with; Oh, we’ve got to be picky, and you might have to fire a few people who don’t belong in that inner circle because they can’t help you be your best and further your purpose.”
Also, she has included some interviews with some current and former military families, generals and other officers. She also has kept stories from her father’s career to enlighten how and why military lessons are so much effective at changing lives both on and off the battlefield.
The book is part memoir and part motivational life guide.
“I think we’ve lost our patience with hearing the other side because we’re so quick for a comeback so our point is heard and we’re proved right. I think this book shows people that you can strategize, and you can negotiate, and have a contingency plan for when you’re wrong and miss the mark, as well as owning your moment when you’re right.”
She offers nine rules for getting by, including “Recruit your special forces,” “Stay ready,” “Wear camo,” “Unleash the power of integrity” and “Think like a general,” among others.
She also has illustrated 16 pages of never-before-seen photos of her early life and career which the readers and fans will find fascinating.
