David Goggins has earned himself the reputation of “toughest man alive” and it’s a reputation well deserved. He is the former world record holder for the most pull-ups done in 24 hours. He once ran 205 miles in 39 hours without stopping. And he’s completed more than 60 ultra-endurance events in his career. He started all this after telling himself that he was the weakest man alive.

“Mediocrity is contagious.” [29:18]

“I viewed myself as the weakest person on the planet earth - my goal in life was to in my mind believe I’m the hardest man alive.” [35:00]

“Life is one big head game and once you learn how to play the motherfucking head game, it’s not a game anymore at all. You can start living your life.” [48:06]
