Embarrassing bravery

22 Dec

“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

Nerve Rush

19 Dec

Just few lines to describe this amazing website and an incredible man: David Goggins “Nerve Rush“.

David Goggins is a Navy Seal, endurance athlete, I could talk about him all day, but this video does a much better job with a lot less words. Take just few minutes and watch this video.

After several of his friends died in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash in 2005 during Operation Red Wings, Goggins began long-distance running with the aim of raising money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which gives college scholarships and grants to the children of fallen special operations soldiers. Here an interesting interview .

His extraordinary achievement earned him a feature story in Runner’s World, where he was named a “Running Hero.”

Goggins’ life is a metaphor for adversity destruction. His bold, “no excuses” approach makes him a wanted commodity on the speaking circuit. He has received invitations to speak at college campuses and business forums, as well as, top sports teams. Goggins is passionate about his focus on positive mindset. His message is one of overcoming diversity and pushing yourself to the limit and beyond.

In a race, you hit several walls. Every time you hit a wall, it’s a big deciding factor in that race, or in life, if you’re not running. You have a big decision to make. You can either stop at that wall and go parallel left or parallel right. You are looking for that door. When you get to that door you have another decision to make. Should I open it or should I keep it closed. If you keep it closed you made the decision to quit. If you open that door you made the decision to carry on, to continue on your journey or mission, whatever you’re on. I always open that door! Once you open that door, and you go through it, your mind resets and it gives you a few more miles.

Your limits don’t exist. They’re just a wall…with a door in it. Keep moving until you find the door. You might go left for a while, you might go right for a while, but if you keep going, you will find that door. And then you get to choose…
