US Navy SEAL David Goggins Gives Insider Tips on Dealing with Problems


Don’t get mad at others because life is kicking your ass. We are measured by how we face those challenges.

If you wake up with bad energy and negative thoughts, trust me, you will carry that same energy the rest of the day. We all have to put in our own work.

On bad days it’s important to get your nose out of the problem! What does that mean? It means you can’t get a clear view of the problem if you are living in it. Pull yourself away from the problem and you will see how different the problem looks. Trust me it will look much smaller. Don’t make that one problem in your life become your life.

It’s truly amazing how many people have all they need and want, but because that one thing isn’t to their liking, their life is miserable. Don’t let that one thing become your outlook.

Take higher ground so you can get a clear picture on your life. LIFE is one mind game learn to play it.”
