This week, Tom is interviewing David Goggins. David has a long and storied military career, he broke the world record in pull-ups, and he wrote a book called, “Can’t Hurt Me.” David talks about how he transformed himself from a dumb fat guy (his words) into a Navy Seal and bestselling author. He’s all about facing your fears so that you can deal with your past and be dominant in your business and your personal life.
Goggins believes in raw accountability. You have to be honest about your shortcomings and work to fix them. In real estate, he suggests that you should make a list of things you don’t like. If you don’t like making calls, guess what David wants you to do? Make a lot of calls. (He uses more colorful language that you’ll see in the video). Unlike many coaches, he doesn’t believe that you should triple down on your strengths. He says that when there’s fear involved, you need to triple down on your weaknesses. If you don’t do that, then your fear will own you, and it will impede your success. David says that fear shrinks your world. When you let your fears control you, you’re cutting down opportunities. Once you conquer your fears, however, you’ll see that the world begins to open up to you.
