“I’m the hardest human being that God ever made.”
“I don’t care if it’s true or not; it’s the most important conversation to me. It’s the thing that drives me every day.”

But when it’s a veteran Navy Seal, previous pull-up world record holder and ultra-endurance phenom, you suspect there might be something going for repetitive self-talk.
