On a recent flight, I read a book by the infamous David Goggins of YouTube fame. At least, that is where I first heard of him. I saw him mentioned on Joe Rogan’s show, and he would pop up when I was looking for motivational videos to watch.
Honestly, at the time, he just seemed like a super motivated motivational speaker who was a little over the top. This turned out to be not far from the truth. However, most guru types you come across are all-talk frauds. Their stories are full of carefully crafted allegories to win people over. Not this guy. At least not from what I could tell. His story is horrible, fantastic, and motivating all at once. This blog will give my thoughts on his fascinating and insanely motivating book, Can’t Hurt Me.
