David Goggins Best Marathon Time

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 we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you have been 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 understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

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

Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you are 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, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.

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

You do not pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

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

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. 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 that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from your link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

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