He was a winner all throughout in 60 ultra marathons and triathlons. Goggins said

“I had a ‘woe is me’ mentality. And I realized no one was coming to save me, so I decided to save myself.

“My bright idea at 297 pounds (135kg) was to try and be a Navy SEAL.”

“When I was 297 pounds, I never thought it was humanly possible to become the person I am today.

“The only thing that changed was my mind.

“A lot of us have the ability to be truly amazing people, but we have to change only one thing – and that’s how we think.”
