Can't Hurt Me

You know that my refrigerator is never full, and it never will be because I live a mission-driven life, always on the hunt for the next challenge. That mindset is the reason I broke that record, finished Badwater, became a SEAL, rocked Ranger School, and on down the list. In my mind I’m that racehorse always chasing a carrot I’ll never catch, forever trying to prove myself to myself. And when you live that way and attain a goal, success feels anti-climactic.

It won’t always go your way, so you can’t get trapped in this idea that just because you’ve imagined a possibility for yourself that you somehow deserve it. 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!

In the military we always say we don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.

It's a lot more than mind over matter. It takes relentless self discipline to schedule suffering into your day, every day.

The most important conversations you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll have with yourself.

Pain unlocks a secret doorway in the mind, one that leads to both peak performance, and beautiful silence.
