David Goggins is CRAZY - can I have a big nod on that? He once posted on Twitter: "If you don't like what you see in the mirror... CHANGE IT".
Anyone who loses 30 kg and finishes in the first places of the most difficult ultra races in the world (Badwater) can be considered a real CRAZY.
He is one of the few men to have gone through Navy SEAL training and Army Ranger School.
He can complete ultra-marathons and ultra-triathlons multiple times, easily complete workouts without breaking a sweat, and do 4,030 pull-ups if he puts his mind to it. The key is to push your body and make a beast of it.
But listen carefully: he says he hates swimming, biking, running, but he does them every day anyway, precisely because he hates them. This makes him stronger as he uses discipline to overcome obstacles.
He is not only in good physical shape, but his mind is also connected at a very high level. Because, after all, if your mind doesn't push your body to get to its best, you'll never get there. No trainer or army ranger school will help you achieve this if you don't intend to challenge yourself.
For what ? Because, as he says, "The road to success will leave you with calluses, bruises and a whole lot of fatigue. It will also leave you stronger."
The more power you have, the more elite warrior you will be like Goggins. Special Forces training is just part of what he does, as this accomplished endurance athlete is so much more than meets the eye.
If you want to become a classy ultra-athlete like record holder Goggins, you have to make up your mind, train, shed the pounds, and become the monster you are capable of.
David says, "Everyone comes to a point in their life where they want to give up. But it's what you do at that time that determines who you are."
According to the Triathlete Europe.com website, every day he is up and running from 3 a.m.
After a 30 km run, he cycled 30 km to work. He runs during lunch if he can. Then he comes home (on the bike, of course) to join his wife and work out in the gym.
This includes exercises with weights and body weights. It is his program to achieve and maintain the fitness level on which he operates.
It goes to bed no earlier than midnight most nights.
About fitness goals, David says, "Most people who doubt you doubt you because they never see themselves doing what you're trying to do."
And he doesn't let anything stop him. In May 2010, her doctor discovered a birth defect that caused a hole in her heart. For everyone else, the best functioning rate is about 75%. You also cannot scuba dive or do anything at high altitudes.
Goggins underwent surgery to repair his heart and continues to push himself every day. Whether it's squats, lunges, push-ups, or weight exercises, Goggins has managed to break numerous fitness records by training like a beast every day. His rigorous training regimen has inspired several other fitness programs, and he is a living example of how the human body can function at its best.
David says he doesn't like running or exercising, but his goal is to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
There are many life lessons you can take from this book and apply them to your training and your life. Mind over matter, that's the solution. He leads this incredible life by training his mind first and his body second.

Motivation sucks. It goes and it comes. Find what excites you. Then you can be motivated. When you're motivated, you don't care.
