Your Suffering Can Become Your Superpower

Would you like to know how to cultivate the mind of the warrior?

Are you ready to suffer to become the best version of yourself? Are you willing to push past your pain to unleash your fullest potential?

David Goggins asks the hard questions because he understands that it takes relentless obsession to flip our lowest “me” mentality, upside down. David once worked his days killing cockroaches to becoming the only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller. What you’ll hear in this episode is how a man decides to do something radically different to shift his life in order to wake up and achieve the best version of himself he knew he could become.


“If I can overcome this, if I can find some power in this, some way to get through this, that right there could be the fuel for the rest of my life. And so I found great strength in suffering.” — David Goggins

  • How David figured out a way to overcome the “Lowest Me Mentality”
  • How he defines motivation versus obsession, and what a difference it can make in your life
  • How suffering changes your self-identity and reminds you of your strengths
