1 Pro

Can’t Hurt Me is unbelievably inspirational and well written book. I’m also a fan of books that have challenges in them that force you to get started on your goals before finishing it. It forced me to think of my own limits and how I’ve been contributing to them instead of mastering them to fuel my goals.

1 Con

Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins is harsh, it’s graphic, it’s not for the faint of heart. Unfortunately I fall into the faint of heart category and a few parts made me sick to my stomach! His experiences have been unbelievably challenging and he has overcome what most would refer to as absolutely impossible!

Motivation is crap! It’s just a bit of kindling. Some people will read this and feel motivated, but then they’re gonna gage a bad day and their motivation is going to be fucking gone. I realized that I had to be more than motivated, more than driven. I had to become obsessed to the point where people thought I was fucking NUTS!

Cop it or Drop it

Cop it! Buy this book! Christmas is coming, and men are often difficult to shop for…hint hint! Can’t Hurt Me is a gift to all that have the pleasure of reading it though. Though this is for everyone (clearly) I can see men specifically, greatly appreciating this raw, harsh, no bs book because David Goggins is essentially a real-life G.I. Joe, and a hero to all. We are not worthy yet, but upon reading this book we an develop the mindset to get there! Thank you David Goggins for this monumental book!
