My favorite episodes are ones where I feel like listeners get some good nuggets of wisdom out of them. I think this is one of those episodes. You are probably expecting a financial review for this episode, but we’re not ready and you’ll get something else. Instead, we tell an interesting story from the road and we review a book that can be life-changing if you embrace its principles.
What To Expect From Episode 116
I have been talking about the incident that I haven’t been ready to talk about for two months, well, I am ready to talk about it. Craig and I discuss a significant issue that occurred with one of our trucks and drivers in September. You’ll want to listen to this episode just for this story. On top of that, there is an abundance of good content about a book I just finished that I really loved.
I recently finished listening to an audiobook that I feel like I really relate to, and it is full of lots of great lessons anyone can learn from to make their life better. The book is “Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds” by David Goggins. David is a retired Navy Seal and one of the best endurance sports athletes in the world. His life experience and how he views our existence are inspiring and there are lots of lessons we all can learn from the book to make us better in all aspects of our lives. He also issues 10 challenges that we can follow to help us along a path of perpetual improvement. Below I list 7 of my favorite lessons and challenges from the book. I encourage you to read or listen to it. You can learn more about it by clicking here. Comment on your favorite lessons once you have had a chance to pick them up.
- Life is not fair, don’t use that as an excuse and let it hold you back.
- Create an “Accountability Mirror”. It will help you be self-aware and hold you accountable to achieve self-improvement.
- Get out of your comfort zone.
- Be willing to work harder than the next person.
- Remove the governor in your brain.
- Be uncommon.
- Be willing to suffer. Most of the good things in my life have come because I have been willing to get out of my comfort zone.
Craig and I talk about these 7 lessons and challenges and why they stuck out to me. I hope you read the book and enjoy it as much as I did.
