Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins

The most important conversations you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll have with yourself. ― David Goggins

What challenges have you faced? Did they start in childhood? A family life that was not what you wished? Financial hardships? Relationship failures? Career disappointment? What has happened and how is that impacting your present?

In Can’t Hurt Me, David Goggins shares his story starting with a childhood that may have looked normal on the outside but was full of emotional and physical abuse. In the years that followed, he and his mother escaped but not necessarily to a life that would resolve the damage that had been done. Even his initial foray into the military as a young adult was still lacking the discipline and direction needed for a successful and healthy life.

Readers will follow Goggins from the point that he realized he wanted more out of life – a lot more. He decided to go from the civilian life of someone in pest removal to pursuing a life as a Navy Seal. To say that this would be a challenging journey is more than an understatement. He was more than 100 pounds overweight and didn’t have the necessary test scores for entrance…and yet the desire to pursue this career…this life…was enough to push Goggins to lose the weight and pass the test in less than three months.

In the years to come, he would continue to push himself believing that most of us only utilize 40% of our ability or capacity. Beyond being a member of SEAL Team 5, he also completed Army Ranger school as well as attending Delta training. He also become an accomplished athlete competing in ultra-running events, and triathlons. He was even once the holder of the 24-hour pullup record (4030). Yet, beyond the fantastic accomplishments is a man that pushes others to find out what they can do…what they can accomplish. This book isn’t just for amazing athletes. It’s a solid read for anyone looking to push past their current experiences…past their previous failures. It’s for those of us that want more out of this life.

You are in danger of living a life so comfortable and soft, that you will die without ever realizing your true potential. ― David Goggins
