Sometimes it takes a good kick in the rear to get you motivated.  This month’s book CAN’T HURT ME – Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds will really get the job done.  The author David Goggins is a Navy Seal, who intertwines his life challenges and difficulties with concrete steps to motivate and move you forwards in what life pursuits YOU have.
From growing up in a broken home, to pushing through physical pain as a Navy Seal and Ultra Endurance Athlete, his stories give the reader perspective on what it takes to overcome both mental and physical barriers we ourselves may have in front of us.
This book is not for the faint of heart and at times it might feel like Goggins is barking orders directly at you, however in the end the suggestion you can take away will help give you a solid foundation for moving forward in your life
