I just finished David Goggins’ book, “Can’t Hurt Me”, from a flight home after speaking in Florida. Talk about a page-turner. Goggins’ childhood was a nightmare: poverty, racism, and physical and mental abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, he turned himself from a depressed, overweight man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon, and one of the world’s top athletes. He’s the only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy Seal, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller.

It’s a raw and brutal account of endurance and the will to win. This book is not for the faint of heart.

Here are 3 questions as you look in the “accountability mirror”, as Goggins calls it.

The best leaders feel compelled to rise to the challenge and do everything in their power to achieve victory in their professional life, family life, and or the people they serve.

I like what my son Jayce told me his SWAT team had as a mantra:
“We are on a NO FAIL mission.”
Here’s to finding a way to win!
