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!
No doubt you’ve seen and heard many “get rich quick” offers over the years. Around since the early 1900’s, most of these schemes promise that with little time, effort or money participants can obtain wealth. Desperately seeking success, many well meaning folks fall for these pitches and sadly, in most cases, end up no father ahead then before they began.
While overnight successes make for great stories, true success is built on the foundation of continuous improvement. Success rarely (if ever) happens from making big changes all at once. Rather, the path to excellence requires progressive baby steps, small improvements in behaviors and execution that when performed consistently over time lead to big performance gains.
Be a little bit better every day and, over time, you’ll be a lot better!

Lauren Hill: Never Give Up
There will be plenty of baskets made this basketball season. None will be more meaningful then the two baskets made by Lauren Hill at the Division III women’s basketball opener yesterday in the Cintas Center at Xavier University.
