I like to start the new year with books, articles and videos on mindset and making sure I’m starting the year off as mentally strong as I can be.
This book Can’t Hurt Me – Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds by David Goggins is one for the ages considering that it is being written by a retired Navy SEAL and the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces ever to complete SEAL training, U.S. Army Ranger School, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller training.
From the very first page here’s the Warning Order…

Here are a few take-aways that I needed to remind myself on and it will serve me well throughout the days.
Armored mind – to develop an armored mind, a mindset so calloused and hard that it becomes bulletproof. You need to go to the source of ask of your fears and insecurities.
Most of the time we don’t rise to the level of our expectations we fall to the level of our training.
The sole reason I work out like I do isn’t to prepare for and win ultra races. It’s to prepare my mind for life itself. Life will always be the most grueling endurance sport and when you train hard, get uncomfortable and callous your mind, you will become a more versatile competitor, trained to find a way forward no matter what.
Your entitled mind is dead weight. Cut it loose. Don’t focus on what you think you deserve. Take aim on what you are willing to earn!
When you get a moment to add another book to your collection and strengthen your mindset for bigger challenges and higher levels, Can’t Hurt Me is the book for you.
