The Daily Man-Up: How To Become The Best Version Of Yourself

September 20, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

1) Love yourself. You deserve the best. You should strive for your potential – the most fulfilled version of yourself – and that potential is virtually limitless. This is the single most important mindset to adopt, as it serves as a foundation for literally everything else. It’s not a case of arrogance or entitlement, but in the sense that you would want the best for a family member of SO that you deeply love. A lot of people self-sabotage (often inadvertently), and complain that they can’t break free of negative habits… I believe this is largely due to the fact that deep down they’ve built up so much self-hatred that they don’t even feel worthy of attaining their goals and living their most fulfilling life. Fuck that. I don’t care what your backstory is, you are worthy. I am. We all are. You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t believe you were.

The Daily Man-Up: Embrace The Struggle

I can remember punching, but doing it more so out of reflex than because of conscious thought. The ringing in my ears was the only sound that I could hear, though I could see the crowd cheering ringside, and I could feel my opponent’s punches landing.

I’d just been dropped in a fight for the first and only time, and my reaction was as it should be: I got right back up and started fighting. Had I stayed down and accepted defeat, I’d never know if I was a real fighter or just a wannabe, a warrior or a pretender.

Most people ask how they can change their lives in a week, month, or year.

But unfortunately, real change takes time.

Most experts agree that the sweet spot for transforming your life requires 18–24 months of conscious effort.

In my own life, I went from single, depressed, and broke to an abundant dating life, happier than I’d ever been, and running a 6 figure business in almost exactly 2 years.

Here’s how I did it and how you can too…

The Daily Man-Up: Don’t Rely On Motivation For Anything

September 5, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up, Self-Improvement |

Because motivation is fleeting and unreliable. Discipline, however, is unyielding. Force yourself to follow through.

“I don’t want to ” shouldn’t even be a factor when considering whether or nor not to work out today. Eliminate your personal wants and just abide by a set of life rules that you set in stone for yourself, and follow through with those.

The Daily Man-Up: Why You Must Stop Overthinking & Start Taking Action

August 22, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

The only reason you haven’t started taking action yet is that you’re in analysis paralysis or afraid of what other people will think.

When you continue to analyze each possible outcome it stops you in your tracks. It’s normal to think things through till the end but when you stay in thinking mode you never take action. It’s okay to fail, you’ll get better anyway.

A post shared by David Goggins (@davidgoggins) on

We are all born savages.

Our bodies adapt to so many different environments- when it is is injured, it finds a way to keep our major organs alive longer. When we are hot, it finds a way to cool us down as much as possible. When it is cold, it finds a way to keep our major organs functioning. I can give so many examples of how our bodies are made to go the distance. The problem is while our bodies are built to go the distance, our minds are not conditioned to do the same.

The Daily Man-Up: A 5-Point Plan to Get your Shit Together

August 16, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

So this post is for you if you feel that you are particularly low on self-discipline and are not at all in control of your life. Things are out of control, and you likely have a lot of people demanding things of you, a lot of last-minute things, and your physical health is not close to what you’d like it to be. Everything is last-minute.

You may find yourself alternative between utter hopelessness “nothing works, nothing helps, this is impossible” and a freaked-out sense of urgency “I need change all this now! I’m running out of time!”

The Daily Man-Up: Defeating the ‘Urge To Do Nothing’

August 9, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

About 5 months ago I made the leap to try and start my own web development business, and since then I’ve found that my biggest obstacle to success is discipline and getting over this ‘Urge To Do Nothing’. It usually manifests in my brain when I try and ‘work’ from home.

Maybe you’ve had the experience recently of sitting down and trying to read a book, and finding your mind start to… wander. Maybe you’re having trouble focusing at work or school, sitting through movies, or even TV shows. There’s a little itch there. “This is cool, I guess… but what’s happening on the internet?”

The Daily Man-Up: 8 Habits that Separate the Grounded Men from the Boys

August 5, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

(photo: @echaparro)

If you are not taking care of your body, you cannot call yourself a strong grounded man. Period!

Your health is your most valuable asset and if you abuse it with drugs, alcohol, shitty foods, and bad sleep, then you are acting like a boy.

Boys believe that they are invincible. As such, they treat their bodies with contempt.

They don’t prioritize sleep. They overindulge in drugs and alcohol. They have unsafe sex. They never train. And they aren’t cognizant of what they are putting into their bodies.
