If you’ve never heard of David Goggins, just picture if a superhero story came to real life. After a devastating childhood that left him broken and lacking ambition, everything changed. He set his sights on becoming a Navy SEAL, and in the process became the only individual in U.S. military history to go through Air Force Tactical Air Control Party Training, Army Ranger school and three “Hell Weeks.” He not only accomplished his goal of becoming a Navy SEAL, but then went on to earn a reputation as one of the world’s premier endurance athletes.
I was extremely proud to introduce David and his incredible life story to our audience at the 2017 Success Summit. Now, as his new book “Can’t Hurt Me” continues to dominate the Amazon Charts, he joined me again for this fascinated interview.
