EGoggins was not meant to amount to much He was supposed to become another s I m of two minds about this book On the one hand it s an inspiring story of a man who has overcome a lifetime of struggle and proved that you can o anything if you re willing to push yourself In the first half of the book especially this was a message that resonated with me and made me think about David Goggins as a man to look up to On the other hand it s a cautionary tale of a man who is so stubborn he can not learn from his past mistakes He is constantly going into situations underprepared and then pushing his body past the point of sanity in order to accomplish a goal and seemingly expecting applause for that Were he in some life or eath situation then I might just give him said applause but instead he is always just trying to prove something to himself which is a really unhealthy way to go through life Overall there were two main lessons to take from Mr Goggins story One is that if you really put your mind to a task you can achieve the impossible The second is that there is nothing admirable about taking the path of highest resistance just for the sake of personal pride Yes Mr Goggins has achieved amazing things but there are others who have achieved similar results in a intelligent and healthy way In the end I came in exactly on the halfway mark in regards to how I felt about this book and I have rounded up for the sake of not wanting to give this book a 2 star review One final note is a comment on the audiobook Mr Goggins made the ecision to insert multiple interludes that feature the narrator interviewing him These were interesting at first but soon grew really tiresome They felt really self serving as each one went along the lines of the narrator expressing how in awe of David Goggins he was and David Goggins expressing yet again how hard it was for him to achieve his goals I could have Woman Much Missed done without 50% of these as well Warning I think I missed something and as a result this review will not be popularI appreciate the fact this book recharged me It forced me to take a look around and realize where I am taking short cuts For that I am grateful for the individual stories of grit andeterminationHowever I started this book expecting as the publisher promised a path that anyone can follow toreach their full potential When I finished I found that the book was only one Why Americas Top Pundits Are Wrong dimensional The storiesemonstrate how the author achieved his full potential physically Is that the author s full potential What about the areas where this Citizen Cain didn t work Are we not going to talk about his two failed marriages Are we not going to talk about how he failed to achieve hisreams in both the SEALs and an elite Army unit Are we not going to talk about how most of the situations he found himself in were a result of lack of preparation Specialization at the cost of everything else Trail of Secrets does not impress me What impresses me is full potential in everyomain It s the individuals who never achieve the success the author How to Train a Cowboy did in oneomain but who are operating at full potential across every aspect of life Show me the path of someone who excels at their job raises their children right contributes to their community emonstrates classical virtues loves their spouse and still achieves physical goals I want to know what path they are on.
