Your Worst Enemy Is Yourself, Goggins Tells Show Attendees

Posted By Erin L. Lasch CAE, Thursday, November 29, 2018

Former Navy SEAL David Goggins shared some insight into what keeps many from achieving their goals in a one-on-one with Brant Insero, ISSA Director of Education, Training, Certification & Standards at the ISSA Show 2018 in Dallas.


Goggins said that simply, “Your worst enemy is yourself.” During his life, Goggins has faced – and conquered – many challenges.  In a discussion titled “Complacency Kills,” Goggins suggested continuously putting obstacles in front of yourself. “I’m not asking you to run 200 miles. I’m asking you to do more with your life,” Goggins stressed.


Many of us do get to points in our life where we feel that we can’t overcome the challenges in front of us, much as Goggins did. But he persevered and kept going, telling the audience that, “I want to do more with my life.”


During his career, Goggins faced severe weight and health issues – many things that make it impossible to be a Navy SEAL. But he explained, “A lot of us want to start something new tomorrow. Why not start today?”


Goggins became a member of the United States Air Force Tactical Air Control Party also known as TACP. Goggins graduated from BUD/S training with Class 235 in 2001 and was assigned to SEAL Team FIVE. Goggins served in Iraq. In 2004, Goggins graduated from Army Ranger School with the distinction of enlisted “Top Honor Man.” Goggins is now a professional speaker and is featured on the Patriot Tour.

We really wanted to hear him speak but unfortunately didn't make it.
