Like I said. The author, Michael J. Mooney, was a really nice, humble guy, and a great writer. I appreciate his article, but there were some things that were a little off or came across wrong, probably because of the way I said them or failed to say them. Here are some corrections and explanations…. I have only crushed a two toys in my time.

Welcome to Reddit,
As men, we all love tough, bad ass guys. Here are 7 guys who have done some amazing shit and have some remarkable stories and I have used their stories for inspiration many times. There is a good chance you haven't heard of any of them, but they all can put some perspective into our lives. Also known as "The Iceman", Wim is a freak of nature and somehow doesn't get cold. His exploits have taken him to the coldest places on Earth and he has even climbed Mount Everest in only a pair of shorts. He now travels worldwide and shares his story and message that the human body and mind can accomplish so much more than we think. His program called the Wim Hof Method , teaches people to become the best versions of themselves while supercharging their immune systems and vastly improving their health and wellness. This video shows what he's been able to subject his body to and why scientists thought it was impossible..
Jocko Willink and David Goggins versus Leo Tolstoy, Ernest Hemingway and Hayden Carruth
Jocko Podcast YouTube Channel. David Goggins self. I just finished Jesse Itzler's book living with a seal, and I got the sense he can rub people in the wrong way, especially machismo alpha personalities. He has no interest in other people at all, and he has oddities about him where on flights or during downtimes he'll just sit there for hours and stare straight ahead completely quiet with no interest to conversate with others around him. Other times, he can be highly paranoid or incredibly volatile and highly suspicious about random strangers or vehicles, but this is the impression I got from Jesse Itzler's book. He seems highly anti-social with dark inner demons that drive him to live his life like that. I read somewhere a while back he refused to go on a few missions. Not sure how true that is but on JRE he did say something about having heart surgery while in the teams so that could be why. Yes, Jeff Nichols if you know him said in some IG live streams in the past that Goggin's refused to go on ops.
Goggins was very interesting, and very, very funny. As former Navy SEALS, both of them enter the public eye with narratives spun out of personal experience, essentially providing staircases for others to climb as a way to make meaning in their own lives. One of the first episodes of the Jocko Podcast focuses his on favourite book, About Face , written by David Hackworth. Later in that episode, Jocko talks about reading Tom Wolfe while on deployment in Iraq. At the time, he was looking around the barracks for something that could take his mind off war and the military, and came upon a copy of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Willink has a degree in English Literature, which implies that he values literature, as well as reading both widely and critically.
