David Goggins is known as the toughest man alive. But his journey has not been smooth sailing at all. The man was once weighing 130 Kilograms and he had brought himself down from that level. And in this weight loss journey, he shed more than 50 Kg in just three months to enter into NAVY SEAL.
He was a winner all throughout in 60 ultra marathons and triathlons. Goggins said
“I came up really rough. I had a learning disability, I had an abusive father … I was one of the few black kids in the town I lived in, so I faced a lot of adversity growing up,”
“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.”
You won’t believe but he used to exercise for 10 hours every day. And he even was following an extremely strict diet routine.
“The only time I wasn’t working out that when I was sleeping,” Goggins said.
“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.”
