2 min readJul 3, 2022

Hey guys, today I am sharing top 10 lesson’s from “Can’t Hurt Me” book.

1.Worst condition are the best training conditions

From then on, I brainwashed myself into craving discomfort. If it was raining, I would go run.

2.Turn adversity into fuel for your metamorphosis

ecause when you’re driven, whatever is in front of you, whether it’s racism, injuries, divorce, depression, obesity, tragedy, or poverty, becomes fuel for your metamorphosis.

3. Confidence comes from personal accountability

The author says : By the time I graduated, I knew that the confidence I’d managed to develop came from personal accountability which brought me self respect, and self respect will always light a way forward.

4. Write down what makes you uncomfortable and go do it

Dig out your journal again and write down all the things you don’t like to do or that make you uncomfortable.

Especially those things you know are good for you. Now go do one of them, and do it again.

5.Smile at pain, watch it fade, and push a bit more

Smile at pain and watch it fade for at least a second or two. If you can do that, you can string those seconds together and last longer than your opponent thinks you can, and that may be enough to catch a second wind

6.You can do more

The author says: Hell Week is designed to show you that a human is capable of much more than you know.

It opens your mind to the true possibilities of human potential, and with that comes a change in your mentality.

7.Push hardest when you want to quit the most

Because it helps you callous your mind. It’s the same reason why you have to do your best work when you are the least motivated

8.Push 5–10% further

Whether you are running on a treadmill or doing a set of push-ups, get to the point where you are so tired and in pain that your mind is begging you to stop.

If the most push-ups you have ever done is one hundred in a workout, do 105 or 110.

9.Most people waste 4–5 hours a day

Most people waste four to five hours on a given day, and if you can learn to identify and utilize it, you’ll be on your way toward increased productivity.

10. The people around you matter

We need to surround ourselves with people who will tell us what we need to hear, not what we want to hear, but at the same time not make us feel we’re up against the impossible.
