A Navy SEAL’s Guide to Achieving Everything You’ve Ever Imagined
I recommend this book for anyone who loves outdoor adventure.
It’s philosophy from the astonishing and inspiring life of
For the last decade, decorated Navy SEAL, accomplished athlete, and bestselling author Don Mann has been traveling across the country giving motivational talks and in the process inspiring hundreds with the secrets behind his awe-inspiring achievements. …
As an elite Navy SEAL, Mann performed seemingly impossible tasks on a regular basis. Here he details the lessons he learned from his training and shows how the rest of us can apply those teachings to our daily lives in terms of learning to push beyond our internal boundaries and achieve the goals we’ve set for ourselves, both professionally and personally. …
I recommend the audio version of the book because it’s read by Don Mann. That ownership makes his extreme stories come to life for me. When you hear Don’s voice, you know he’s the real deal. The kind of guy who could push himself to the point of passing out during extreme exercise. The kind of guy who will not quit.
The book intersperses Don’s life story — hundreds of outdoor races included — with stories of the people who inspired him.
Reinhold Messner, for example.
Before reading this book I’d never heard of the fantastic first American, all-woman summit of Annapurna in 1978. That blew my mind. They were decades ahead of their time.
I recommend this book even if you are an armchair adventurer. It’s going to make you want to get up off the couch and get outside.
