David Goggins x Chris Williamson
Get ready to be inspired by the story of David Goggins, a living testament to the power of the human spirit. Despite a difficult childhood and numerous obstacles, he refused to let his circumstances define him. With unwavering determination and a never-give-up attitude, he transformed himself into a world-renowned ultra-endurance athlete, breaking records and pushing the boundaries of what was once thought impossible. If you haven’t already go and listen to him on the Modern Wisdom podcast.
- Mental toughness, like any other skill, is a perishable skill; practice it regularly.
- It only takes one second for you to fail at what you are pursuing. Don’t let your mind take control of you during that one second.
- Never be ashamed of anything you have done in your life. Face it, fix it, and make it better.
- Most success in life actually is avoiding failure.
- You don’t become confident by shouting affirmations in the mirror but by having a stack of undeniable proof.
- You got to have a dog in you. You got to be your own motivator. No one was coming to save you, save yourself.
- Don’t be soft in a world that continuously gets harder. Build a strong character that is capable of withstanding the pressures of life.
- You are always the purpose there may be another purpose like being a seal or going to college or whatever but the main purpose in life is you.
- You must have the desire to improve and it starts off with you having pride in yourself. Be proud.
- You will find peace if you go to war with yourself.
