Can't Hurt Me

Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds


David Goggins

I recommend this book for one reason only: It is pure motivation. David Goggins proves that if your mind believes a goal is attainable, your body can be brutally forced to reach it. It is beyond incredible what this man has put and continually puts his body through and endures. My only hesitation in recommending this book is that it seems (opinion solely based on the only information I have, this book) all other aspects of life, family included, are placed as secondary priorities to the current fixated goal. That said, the book is meant to be about achieving, over-achieving, and utilizing your mind to its full capability, not family. To that point, it is beyond excellent. Goggins' life and accolades are incomprehensible to the average person, but they will absolutely get you off your ass.
Can't Hurt Me
From the back cover: For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America.

In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.
