    One of the most motivating/inspirational podcast episodes in a long time. What a fucking man. Especially when he's talking about being a fat loser. With a damn hole in his heart.



    "David Goggins (born February 17, 1975) is a retired United States Navy SEAL and former United States Air Force Tactical Air Control Party member who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is an ultramarathon runner, ultra-distance cyclist, triathlete and world record holder for the most pull-ups done in 24 hours.

    Goggins graduated from Basic Underwater Demolitions/SEAL (BUD/S) training with Class 235 in 2001 and was assigned to SEAL Team FIVE. Goggins completed with multiple deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2004, Goggins graduated from Army Ranger School with the distinction of enlisted "Top Honor Man." [6]

    Goggins is the only member in the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training, Ranger School and Air Force Tactical Air Controller training.[1]. Goggins retired from active duty as a Chief Petty Officer in 2016.

    Goggins also served as the bodyguard for Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari.[1]

    After several of his friends died in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash in 2005 during Operation Red Wings,[4] Goggins began long-distance running with the aim of raising money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Foundation gives college scholarships and grants to the children of fallen special operations soldiers.[9]

    It has been estimated that Goggins has raised over $2 million for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.[1]

    I watched it. Dude is super motivational and brings up a lot of good points as to what it takes to push past boundaries and improve yourself. His intensity is a little much and you've gotta wonder if the dude ever just relaxes and just takes it all in and enjoys life. Its always go go go push push push war with himself.

    I know Goggins' whole point was that anyone could do what he does but it must be reiterated.... that man is a special breed of human being.

    Listened to it yesterday and it was a 10/10 interview.

    I check out every JRE episode but rarely listen to the same one more than once. That podcast is gonna be worth listening to multiple times over.

    Definitely an inspiring guy, but his arrogance is off putting.

    This guy was intense. I really liked the interview. But man oh man did He have some racial animosity. Underlying but noticeable. Like talking about being a black guy on the seal teams and whatnot. Or distance running. His mom is white and he seems to hate his black dad, and he talked about using sickle cell as an excuse. He identifies as black maybe bc of the shitty lot he had in life, but I think I sense some self loathing in that interview. Maybe why he seems to be continuously pissed. I dunno, just a thought.

    He's not special. He didn't have any genetic gifts. He was massively overweight. 300 pounds. Couldn't run a quarter mile. The only thing he had was his mindset which is something you have 100% control over and the ability to change. Writing it off as "he's something special " or "different" defeats everything he had to say. By drawing that conclusion you're limiting your own self by drawing a distinction that he somehow has something that you don't and because of that you couldn't do what he did.
