    I m of two minds about this book On the one hand, it s an inspiring story of a man who has overcome a lifetime of struggle and proved that you can do anything if you re willing to push yourself In the first half of the book especially this was a message that resonated with me and made me think about David Goggins as a man to look up to On the other hand, it s a cautionary tale of a man who is so stubborn he can not learn from his past mistakes He is constantly going into situations underprep I m of two minds about this book On the one hand, it s an inspiring story of a man who has overcome a lifetime of struggle and proved that you can do anything if you re willing to push yourself In the first half of the book especially this was a message that resonated with me and made me think about David Goggins as a man to look up to On the other hand, it s a cautionary tale of a man who is so stubborn he can not learn from his past mistakes He is constantly going into situations underprepared and then pushing his body past the point of sanity in order to accomplish a goal and seemingly expecting applause for that Were he in some life or death situation then I might just give him said applause, but instead, he is always just trying to prove something to himself which is a really unhealthy way to go through life Overall there were two main lessons to take from Mr Goggins story One is that if you really put your mind to a task you can achieve the impossible The second is that there is nothing admirable about taking the path of highest resistance just for the sake of personal pride Yes, Mr Goggins has achieved amazing things, but there are others who have achieved similar results in aintelligent and healthy way In the end, I came in exactly on the halfway mark in regards to how I felt about this book and I have rounded up for the sake of not wanting to give this book a 2 star review One final note is a comment on the audiobook Mr Goggins made the decision to insert multiple interludes that feature the narrator interviewing him These were interesting at first but soon grew really tiresome They felt really self serving as each one went along the lines of the narrator expressing how in awe of David Goggins he was, and David Goggins expressing yet again how hard it was for him to achieve his goals I could have done without 50% of these as well

    You are in danger of living a life so comfortable and soft, that you will die without ever realizing your true potential The words of David Goggins resonate with me on a level that I cannot quite describe I understand what it is to watch people suffer and fail because they did not believe in themselves I understand what it is to watch people waste their lives and fuck up time and time again I will not walk that path.Motivation is not enough to pull us through It comes and goes, like th You are in danger of living a life so comfortable and soft, that you will die without ever realizing your true potential The words of David Goggins resonate with me on a level that I cannot quite describe I understand what it is to watch people suffer and fail because they did not believe in themselves I understand what it is to watch people waste their lives and fuck up time and time again I will not walk that path.Motivation is not enough to pull us through It comes and goes, like the wind Something much stronger is needed for ultimate success Some would call it an unrelenting drive Some would call it obsession Call it what you will, but what it needs to be is a singular pursuit for a goal that never dies It must continue on the days when motivation ceases to exist It must continue on the days when you feel like death and the world overwhelms you What I love about Goggins is his brutal honesty He writes from a position from strength and success, but these traits were only born from weakness and a brutal backstory that gave him the drive he needed to take on some massive challenges I thought I d solved a problem when really I was creating new ones by taking the path of least resistance The truth is, we will only ever get anywhere in life through hard work and even then life might surprise us and leave us in the gutter But we don t know unless we try, we don t know if we don t give this game everything we have and all that we are We have one life, so why not spend it trying to become the best version of yourself and trying to help as many people as possible on the way I listen to clips from Goggins every morning to keep me sane I listen before every training run I do I listen because Goggins has found a method that works and he wants you to try it to Facebook Twitter Insta Academia

    I read this book in one day Certainly is interesting.That said, I worry about the message I agree with his point to a point But life isn t always about just pushing yourself to the point of breakdown It s also about acceptance.In the last chapter, he does talk about that But I still think he hasto go in his journey in life He s accomplished a lot and has done a lot of good and I sincerely thank him for his service but I hope for his own sake he finds true inner peace.Until he doe I read this book in one day Certainly is interesting.That said, I worry about the message I agree with his point to a point But life isn t always about just pushing yourself to the point of breakdown It s also about acceptance.In the last chapter, he does talk about that But I still think he hasto go in his journey in life He s accomplished a lot and has done a lot of good and I sincerely thank him for his service but I hope for his own sake he finds true inner peace.Until he does, I caution against following his advice blindly It s good, but only good to a point Also rage shouldn t fuel you the most successful people transcend that and are fueled by love sounds cheesy I know but it s true

    The only way to guarantee failure is to quit right now This book will make you feel extremely guilty for skipping your workout Ever I think people who run the 26 mile marathons are out of their minds I had no idea what levels of athletic lunacy are out there, like running on broken legs or running 100 miles in 36 hours in the hottest place on earth in July David Goggins, after losing 109 pounds in three months, managed to become a Navy SEAL After that, he just kept looking for new ways to The only way to guarantee failure is to quit right now This book will make you feel extremely guilty for skipping your workout Ever I think people who run the 26 mile marathons are out of their minds I had no idea what levels of athletic lunacy are out there, like running on broken legs or running 100 miles in 36 hours in the hottest place on earth in July David Goggins, after losing 109 pounds in three months, managed to become a Navy SEAL After that, he just kept looking for new ways to challenge his body as a way to harden his mind He spent his first few years of life with a father that beat him and his mother They escaped that to move in with his grandparents in a small Indiana town where he was the only black kid in school and both kids and adults spewed the n word at him He grew up angry and cheated his way through school until he wanted to join the military and realized he d be tested, and he needed to pass high school His senior year he got his academic life in order and, with the help of a tutor, went from having a third grade reading level to the reading level where he should have been.This book is extremely heavy on the mastery of the mind to do physical things that the majority of us will never even want to do Goggins really glosses over his marriages and the fact he became a father It s great that he can run a zillion miles up a mountain, but, to me, success has a heck of a lotto do with your personal relationships with others than whether you can run 100 miles in a short time without keeling over dead I agree with him about getting your mind in the right place, regardless what goals you have Everything in life is a mind game If you have negative people in your life with power over you like a bad boss, he advises to take their negativity and feed off of it, turn it on its head, don t let their negative thoughts infect yours Don t be a victim Avoid indulging in negative self talk People who are bullies are bullies because they are insecure Visualize your goal and potential challenges to achieving that goal Know clearly why you are trying to achieve something because you will hit obstacles and want to give up However, Visualization will never compensate for work undone It takes relentless self discipline to schedule suffering into your day Build on small accomplishments to achieve big ones Ignore friends and colleagues who tell you you can t accomplish whatever goal you set out for yourself If you want to master the mind, you ll have to become addicted to hard work Because passion and obsession, even talent, are only useful tools if you have the work ethic to back them up Identify and accept your weaknesses We all like to do things we are good at He recommends finding our weaknesses and working on what make us uncomfortable If we re doing great at work and are healthy physically and with our personal relationships, learn a new language or something else to continue to grow.Before Goggins became a SEAL he was living life like a zombie and had accepted his fate When depression smothers you, it blots out all light and leaves you with nothing to cling onto for hope All you see is negativity Very few people know how the bottom feels, but I do It s like quicksand It grabs you, sucks you under, and won t let go When life if like that it s easy to drift and continue to make the same comfortable choices that are killing you, over and over again We all make habitual, self limiting choices Human beings change through study, habit, and stories There is some inspirational stuff to draw from here He uses the f word a lot, which is not a word that bothers me, but it is a little jarring to see in a memoir self help kind of book Still, this was a very fast read for me, and I ll keep his thoughts in mind when I want to skip a workout or don t want to push myself because it feels too hard Forreviews, please visit
