Sometimes It can be hard keeping motivated and staying focused. David Goggins described as the “toughest man in the world,” says it’s not motivation alone that will keep us going, but being driven is what ensures we are focused.

You have to put in every day and remind yourself of what you’re doing to get where you want.

  1. It’s okay to look stupid. Nobody knows it all.
  2. Keep moving. Even if you have to crawl.
  3. Know when to quit. It’s okay to try and fail.
