Living with a SEAL by Jesse Itzler

My Thoughts

Motivating and entertaining. My 2018 Q4 theme is physical health and fitness which is one reason I selected this book. This is a fun book and motivated me to get out of my comfort zone physically and mentally.

The 77th book read in my 2018 reading list.

Quotes from SEAL (David Goggins)

Every day do something that makes you uncomfortable.
I’m trained to disappear.
I’m the surprise-or not the surprisee.
You need to feel the pace.
I don’t think about yesterday, I think about today and getting better.
It doesn’t have to be fun, it has to be effective.
It’s really not that complicated.
If it doesn’t suck, we don’t do it.
Train for the unexpected.
If you want to be pushed to your limits, you have to train to your limits.
Enjoy the pain, I earned it now I am going to enjoy it.
Every day is a challenge otherwise it is not a regular day.
If you can’t do the basics, you can’t do [bleep].
If you’re going to do them, do them right.
You can get through any work out because everything ends.
Don’t get too comfortable ever.
You can always keep going.
If your hungry, run faster, you’ll be home quicker.
I don’t like to talk to strangers, actually I don’t like to talk.
Be ready for anything at anytime.
The tougher the conditions the more I like my odds.
Fear is one of the best motivators, anger is the other.
Know what’s important to you and protect it at all costs.
I don’t celebrate victories but I learn from failures.
If you don’t challenge yourself you don’t know yourself.
I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done.
If you can’t see yourself doing something, you can do it. If you can’t see yourself doing something, usually you can’t achieve it.
The only easy day was yesterday.

My Action Steps After Reading

  • Doing a lot more push-ups!
