Learn more about the author
David Goggins is a record-breaking endurance athlete, retired Navy SEAL and world-renowned motivator. He has been tested in ways most people could never imagine—by pushing his body to the absolute limits of human endurance, by sustained exposure to mortal danger, and by confronting pain beyond what many would think possible. But it was his experience in Iraq as a Special Operations warrior that marked the turning point in his life. It was there that he discovered his true calling: not simply enduring extreme physical challenges but using those experiences to motivate others’ transformations. As an ultra-endurance athlete, David holds three Guinness World Records for fastest finishes in 100-mile races; 200-mile races; and 4 x summits of Mount Whitney (the highest peak in the contiguous United States) within 24 hours. In 2014 he completed The Hardest Race on Earth—a selfSupported 1,000 mile run through Death Valley National Park in temperatures up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
