David Goggins on How He Became Unstoppable and Doing the Unthinkable | Impact Theory




Self-Direction Is an Inside Job

Do you believe that being ambitious is wrong or do you believe that ambition or your deep rooted desire to be the best possible version of yourself, is your obligation and even your duty? I believe that operating at anything less than your best, is not only going to frustrate you, but is wasteful and robs you of the fulfillment and meaning you so richly deserve. It is time to see that you are magnificent and capable of far more than you believe possible.

Spring Is in the Air! New Beginnings!

Spring is on the way! Take this time of year to look ahead to your future, plan and visualise how you would like your life to change and start to take the first steps to put your ambitions into place.



Be Worth It

If you want a higher pay, you must be more valuable to the marketplace. If you want a greater attraction from your spouse, you must increase in value to him or her. Whatever you want out of life you can have, as long as you increase your value enough to attract it. Just because you’re valuable somewhere, doesn’t mean you’re valuable everywhere.

Deserving More

You deserve whatever you put yourself in a position to deserve. We are all afforded grace to some level; however, there are some things you’re just going to have to do yourself. If you think you are deserving of being wealthy, put yourself in a position to receive wealth; it’s really that simple.

Live and Not Tolerate

Life is meant to be lived and not tolerated. We go through life tolerating ups and downs. We tolerate what people say to us, and we tolerate things that we feel like we just can never change, rather, this is not the essence of life nor is it the reason why we are alive. We were not born in this world just to tolerate whatever comes our way. Having high goals, we are meant to live out our lives to the fullest.

Think Independently

No matter how much advice, counsel or how much of someone else’s experience people share with you, at the end of the day, you will have to make decisions for yourself. What that means is you’re going to have to have your own information to make great decisions. Studying, analyzing, and brainstorming are all things that are necessary so that you may develop your opinions. All of your views cannot be based on the views of someone else.

Who Knows What You Can Do?

There really is no limit to what you can do. No one, not even yourself, really knows all of what you are capable of. Once you accomplish one thing, you’ll seek to do another thing, and another, and eventually, you’ll be doing things that you never even imagined yourself doing. Your life is not fully made up of just your past. Your life is also made up of the possibilities of your future.

Why Its Really Uplifting To Observe Disappointment

Certainly nobody likes to experience failure in general, it’s generally upsetting and disappointing to find out when individuals are unable to get by or hurting to complete their goals. It makes you feel the need to reach out and provide them a bit of support, but all too often it is not really what’s best for them. If you train the person how to take action for themself, its way more constructive than just handling it to them.

Success! Define It, Post It and Live It!

Are you successful? Will you be successful in the future? Do you have a time line and set goals to that end? Well, let’s paint a different picture. Let’s say you were given a few days to live and you were lucky enough to be on your deathbed, surrounded by the people you love. Each of you could say the things you needed to say before you left this world. Would you be able to close your eyes and say, “I was successful in my life”? Well here’s a question for you. Why in the world would you want to wait until the last hours of your life to realize you’re a success? I want you tonight when you close your eyes to say, “I’m a success”. And tomorrow, live it. To make that a reality certain steps need to be taken.

To Be Successful: Forget All About Having Role Models

Having a role model is usually considered as being central to a person’s success. Many motivational speakers usually stress the need to have somebody with whom you can identify with. While there is really nothing wrong with having somebody that you admire, having a role model might actually be your undoing so far as your journey to success is concerned.

Whatever It Is, Winning Is Preferred

We all love the mountain top, but who loves to climb it? If the reward is good enough, we all do not mind going for that goal. But if it is not good enough, we do not want to do it, but we still would like the goal of winning anyway, and if there is a way not to earn it and still get it, we would. That is pretty much what this article is about, but there is more to it than meets the eyes reading it.

Is It Motivation or Inspiration or What Lies In Between?

Motivation and inspiration- two terms that determine your destiny. You hear many people speak about how motivated they are. Some tell you they need some inspiration. That they went to listen to public speakers, they read a book, or attended some religious session searching for some inspiration.
