It’s no secret that most people fall well short of achieving all they are capable of. They fall victim to complacency, reach a ‘good enough’ position and settle for the status quo.

As I often say.. If good enough is good enough for you then you’ll never achieve greatness.

If Good Enough Is Good Enough For You Then You'll Never Achieve Greatness TH1

Perfectly aligned with this principle, this recently published book by Jesse Itzler provides a unique perspective on breaking through your comfort zone:

Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet

Promoting the book, Business Insider published the video below.

Here’s the self-explanatory summary as published on YouTube:

“Jesse Itzler felt he was in a rut. So he asked Navy SEAL David Goggins to live with him for 31 days, during which Jesse would do anything David told him to do.

Jesse would later write “Living With A Seal” documenting the grueling experience of getting whipped into shape by one of the toughest men on the planet. They ran through snow storms, jumped into a frozen lake, and did lots and lots of push-ups.

Here, Jesse and David talk about actively pushing yourself and the 40% rule, which means when you think your done and have reached your limit, you’re actually only 40% done.”

 

As Jesse said, “you can’t improve when you’re on autopilot. You have to get out of the complacency of the routine”. 

Indeed. Follow Jesse’s advice and the Navy SEAL’S 40% Success Rule, tap into your ‘reserve tank’ and breakthrough your comfort zone to achieve higher levels of success!
