Making New Year resolutions is a great idea, but it always seems we stick to them for a few short weeks and then we are back to old habits.

If we can redirect the energy from our bad habits into something more productive for a long enough period of time, we can form new good habits.

If you have gone through sh*t in your life, haven't we all, it would be a safe bet it is nothing like what David Goggins has been through. I have listened to a few podcasts with this, tell it like it is, quit whining, stop asking questions and just f-ing do it, incredible person. His book "Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy The Odds" will make you have a totally different outlook on what you can accomplish in life. It is also available in audio version with many commentary extras, which I am listening to at the moment.
