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 a intelligent 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 flag 12 likesLike see review View all 3 comments Dec 23, 2018 Jarrod Kane

winning, never being the 1 40 warrior that he talks about and that s all because he does not see anything then having to constantly push past pain as his only ability.I m sure others will think that what he pushed through and have achieved are amazing feats of mental toughness His pain tolerance is impressive, I won t disagree there but the fact that there s multiple times that he would have died if others had not been there for him just baffles me as to why that s a good thing I think there are some good techniques and things that this book teaches about pushing through pain and being tough

out loud WHAT THE FUCK Who is this guy Now I was on the lookout for this dude Then he came on Rich Roll s podcast, and holey moley, was this guy intense But this wasn t enough and I wanted MORE Finally David Goggins appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience not once, but twice and announced he had a book coming out I had mixed feelings about this I ve heard him tell his story multiple times and thought that the book would just be another retelling AT THE SAME TIME, I knew he s an inspirational guy so it wouldn t hurt to get some additional motivation inspiration Oh man, it was not inspiration I got from thisI listened to the audiobook which had additional comments and QA from the ghost writer narrator and David Goggins so I got insight to what was going on in the story I sort of have mixed feelings about him, now that I ve heard his story I ll start with the negative which aren t that much of a negative Although I understand that this is from personal experience, I couldn t help but feel like a lot of the times he went on a charade of me me me me and look what an amazing feat I did that no one could Then again, when you re writing a book about mastering YOUR OWN mind, it s impossible not to bring yourself as an example, especially when you ve actually done feats like he has And his interactions with people was quite repugnant to say the least He has admitted to it in the book about how he behaved with other people and I understand him.Now, for the positive bits Let me get it out of the way David Goggins is a Badass Motherfucker He curses like a motherfucker, runs across states and back, passes the toughest SOF trainings in three branches of the US Armed Forces x3 Hell Weeks A truly inspirational story Ever since a child, he has defied the odds and has come on top, even inspite of all the hurdles life has thrown at him NOT ONCE, has he put himself in the fetal position and cried boohoo poopy pants muh oppression He implored a better technique of taking souls of those who come in his way of achieving whatever he wants showing them that nothing can stop him, not even the greatest of the challenges they instructors, racists can think for him.I won t be paraphrasing any of his goals because one must experience this oneself, either through the book or audiobook with the comments book first then the audiobook would be the best of combos But I do want to share one thought that stuck with me through this It is that this struggle is not with a finish line, there is no finally I can rest moment No This is an ongoing struggle There can be rest points but we must always be working towards something, some goal We can make a quick rest here and there in between but never stop Our fuel should be our passion that we ve phrased properly to ourselves and can use whenever we feel like we want to quit Don t use motivation because that is a fleeting source of fuel When you think you re at your endpoint, you ve only done 40% of the work You ve got in you than you think GET AFTER IT PS I ve read some reviews about this book that there s too much cursing If this offends or bothers someone, then this book is not aimed towards you Try Tony

facing it by working and not hiding any And I didn t even have near the same horrific childhood Mr Goggins had, and had a lot of people supporting me, but this book is for anyone who is looking for

the book.So I was really excited when I saw this book.I listened to the audiobook, which took on a really exciting format It gets narrated by Adam Skolnick, but after each chapter, there is a podcast type discussion around everything that happened in the chapter Here you got first hand description of events from Goggins, allowing you to feel what he went through and was thinking at the time In my opinion, this made the book If I had tot read the book and not have this context, I probably would ve hated it.There are a lot of things contributing to me not liking this book as much as others.This by no means takes anything away from the struggles Goggins went through, and the achievements he had Which is absolutely unimaginable.Also I have been going through a personal transformation for the last give or take year and a half So a lot of the take away information is already part of my life.Having read lots of books that has to do with endurance and the ultra marathon scene, I cannot help but to compare them Since most of the other guys books also has an element of personal struggle they went through.I did love the overlap of previous information I had, to expand the context around certain races events.I could find a lot of truth in things he said, as I m busy training for my first ultra marathon I did tend to call out the absolutely stupid things he did as well.There is specific mention of Scott Jurek.I first got introduced to Scott in Born to Run A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen and then later read his bookEat and Run My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness His book focused a lot on things going well, and didn t dig so deep into where things went wrong like Goggins did.I do like the different perspectives of the Badwater 135 race though, and how Goggins perceived Scott I can t recall picking up anything about Goggins in Scott s book though.Another great book was Ultramarathon Man Confessions of an All Night Runner from Dean Karnazes There wasn t any mention of Dean here, but they moved in the same scene, and the book is very comparable I loved Dean s book And if you are into these type of books, it will be worth your time.Finally I really enjoyed Goggins s concept of callusing your mind And it rings true I ve done a book which addresses the flip side of this Endure Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance from Alex Hutchinson This book however addresses the science behind what the limits of the human body is And they also had some unexplained phenomena where science couldn t explain why one athlete instance would out perform another Which comes back to the mind, like Goggins explains it All in all I respect Goggins for what he has achieved, and he is one badass mofo.If I have heard his story first, I probably would ve been way impressed.But I think there are a whole bunch of these badass mofos out there.For people that enjoyed the other Ultra running related books This book is focused on Goggins s life and what drove him to do things, and how he overcame his obstacles Also some nice lessons on how you can apply things to your life You will only enjoy parts of this book if you are just interested in the Ultra running part There is in this book related to his military career though Going through Seals, Rangers, DevGru, Delta Force, all for the next

deciding on a Wednesday to do a 24 hour endurance race with a goal of 100 miles on a Saturday is a bit crazy Top that off with hitting the gym hard on the Friday in between to train legs well, that s just a recipe for disaster Then, when disaster hits peeing blood not seeking immediate medical attention, that s just plain stupid.Stupidity aside, the central theme of Goggins book that people can adjust their internal governors that we are all capable of than we think we are is a good one For my money, this concept much better addressed in the book Endure by Alex Hutchinson, but Goggins gives us in his own words the meathead approach to it in a very entertaining way All that being said, Goggins has a very impressive history of ultra marathon success with 50 finishes of some of the most badass races in the sport I d just take his example with a very large grain of salt.Stupidity aside, the central theme of Goggins book that we can adjust our internal governor, that we are all capable

hitting part self help, and part motivational self memoir A personal recollection of an inspiring life A life in which we was dealt as bad as hand as possible But he overcame all the odds and became one of the hardest man in the world My review of it Every once in a while, you come across a book that you know deep down is going to change your life I have a unshakeable feeling that Can t Hurt me is going to be one Major portion of the book is a memoir detailing his life story That in itself would make this a greatly inspiring book I am not kidding, during part of the story I had shivers up and down my spine But in my personal opinion, what elevates it from great to one of my absolute favourites, is the actionable steps that he lays out at the end of each chapter He distills down the lessons he learnt as a list of questionnaire exercises for you to work with This is the life changing part I mentioned earlier It makes you look yourself in the mirror, self identify your problems and call yourself out if you are stuck in a rut No soft lies any, just naked hard realities It definitely made me reevaluate own realities It was a deafening wake up call.The book pretty much has the same cadence throughout We get to hear part of his life story and then steps to work with that will help reclaim your life Also, there are glimpses of how the mind of super achiever looks like Something that you might want to use in your life when you are pushing yourself hard, and want to obliterate all those boundaries This is an absolute 5 star book for me.But that being said, I am not sure if everyone will enjoy this as I did First, there is the back story, I personally could relate to him the bad hands that life dealt him, the self doubts, the seemingly endless pit that you think you are stuck in when you are down This was one of the reasons why the book strongly resonated with me I am not entirely sure how would this resonate to others Second, some might find his drive for excellence a bit extreme and jarring to constantly push boundaries, and to consistently be at war with yourself But at this stage in my life, this is what I need Nevertheless, give it a try It s too good to pass

best physical shape of his life while working as a wildland firefighter He says his current condition is mainly due to a recognition of much needed balance in flexibility along with the strength and

competed in However, I wonder how the other aspects of his life were affected with such an intense focus on physical accomplishment personal relationships, his role as a father, his role as a husband This book is definitely inspiring when it comes to setting your mind to accomplishing some physical task and pushing through when your body is telling you when to quit Reading his story will

    This book is the epitome of pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps A decade ago when he burst onto the ultra racing scene I found Goggin s story a powerful paradigm shift in my own life It s a testimony to what s possible, an assault on absolutely ANY excuses you can invent, and a challenge to do likewise Don t just read this book, but when you put it down, apply the same mindset Use it to fight your own battles and overcome your own limitations

    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 has to 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 b [...]
