This week I found a video by David Goggins. The video starts talking about how his how’s and why’s. David talks about how he was in a racist environment. What his life was like as he grew up. He talks about what he went through when in seal training and how it was all about being uncomfortable.
David then talks about his experience of thinking he was just about done and has to go through the whole training again. He explains how he comes to understand that when you veer away from that which is uncomfortable you are avoiding the journey of life.
David Goggins has since started pursuing those uncomfortable events. He has gone for world records. TO do that he doesn’t blame anybody for his life for his shortcomings. He is building, what he calls, calluses on his mind. He makes himself uncomfortable every day. He pushed himself to try harder and harder. That way he knows he is growing and becoming more resilient. David goes on to explain why getting uncomfortable makes you change. How it burns that lies you tell yourself and you tell the world away and if you can face that you grow.
