“The most important conversations you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll have with yourself.”—David Goggins
by David Goggins
… so if you start thinking that it will, you’ll be disappointed and less effective. Instead of focusing on what you think you deserve, figure out what you want and be willing to pay the dues required to get it.
If you want something, YOU have to go after it. Don’t wait for someone else to give you the opportunity. Don’t wait for someone else to help you. If it’s your dream, it’s on YOU. If you wait, you’ll be waiting until you’re on your deathbed if you don’t take actio...
Even if you have big dreams, you need to start with small victories. Those small victories will provide the fuel you need for the bigger fire you want to build. Find ways to set up milestones along the way that will keep you going. Progress is one of the most mot...

Next time you’re inspired to do something, but feel that sense of self-doubt start kicking in, stop yourself and ask:
“What if I did _____?” Fill in the blank with what you want to do.
Then, think about this: What would a successful outcome look like?

The words of David Goggins resonate with me on a level that I cannot quite describe. I understand what it is to watch people suffer and fail because they did not believe in themselves.
