For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America.
In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
David Goggins’ early life was marked by hardship, struggle, and poverty. But thanks to his astonishing work ethic and willpower, he achieved great success as a Navy SEAL, endurance athlete, and motivational speaker. The personal, raw tone of Can’t Hurt Me sets it apart from most self-help guides. Rather than presenting his self-discipline techniques with a cheerleader’s perkiness, Goggins delivers his message with a veteran’s seen-it-all intensity. Our takeaway? The best way to get through a miserable experience—whether it’s running an ultramarathon or clearing out your inbox—is to put your head down and marshal your inner stores of focus and strength.

An amazing book about an amazing person
Can’t Hurt Me
A fantastic and inspirational read. I heard David Goggins on the Joe Rohan podcast and bought the book the next day. It was everything I had hoped it would be. To endure an upbringing such as the one David did and come out of it as such an inspiration for others is a feat to be proud of, and no doubt it took a lot of hard work and discipline to get there. What a champion!!
