David Goggins Bad Advice

In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
