David Goggins is a former Navy SEAL (and Army Ranger) who used to hold a Guinness World Record for completing 4,030 pull-ups in 17 hours.
(Yes, you read that correctly. Four thousand and thirty pull-ups. In 17 hours. And here I am reasonably happy with my 3,650 pull-ups a year accumulated 10 reps per day every day. lol)
These days he’s setting records as an ultra-endurance athlete.
But he wasn’t always Mr. Superhero.
In this great autobiographical self-help book, David walks us through his transformation from being a 297-pound exterminator to a “Who IS this guy?!” superhero.
If you’re into SUPER (!!!) intense demonstrations of how to conquer ourselves to do the seemingly impossible (and don’t mind a stream of f-bombs—lol) then I think you’ll love this book as much as I did. (Get a copy of the book here.)
Goggins is an astonishingly (!!!) inspiring human being.
Of course, the book is packed with Big Ideas. I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
