Time to get raw. No, not raw dogging it. This isn’t about spreading monkeypox. It’s about getting raw with yourself. You need to get raw before you build up some emotional callous.

Goggins’ second challenge (from his book) is this:

Challenge #2 – It’s time to come eyeball to eyeball with yourself, and get raw and real. This is not a self-love tactic. You can’t fluff it. Don’t massage your ego. This is about abolishing the ego and taking the first step toward becoming the real you!

I tacked Post-It notes on my Accountability Mirror, and I’ll you to do the same. Digital devices won’t work. Write all you insecurities, dreams, and goals on Post-Its and tag up your mirror. If you need more education, remind yourself that you need to start working your ass off because you aren’t smart enough! Period, point blank. If you look in the mirror and see someone who is obviously overweight, that means you’re fucking fat! Own it! It’s okay to be unkind with yourself in these moments because we need thicker skin to improve in life.

You need to be truthful with yourself about where you are and the necessary steps it will take to achieve those goals, day by day. Each step, each necessary point of self-improvement, should be written as its own note. That means you have to do some research and break it all down. For example, if you are trying to lose forty pounds, your first Post-It may be to lose two pounds in the first week. Once that goal is achieved, remove the note and post the next goal of two to five pounds until your goal is achieved.

Any one who did last week’s GlibFit exercise can pick it up from here. It’s getting real and raw. You are also starting down the path to becoming who you want to be.

This week’s music.
