Now when my son is crying, that’s a very easy thing to deal with.
Explain the challenge you have for your followers on social media.
I have an amazing challenge going on to celebrate this year, #2017ofeverything.
Each month I post a new challenge for a different U. charity and anyone that participates, I donate $100 to that charity on the honor code that you completed it.
In January, you had the whole month to complete 2017 sit-ups, 2017 push-ups, etc., no gym needed, and we raised over $110,000 for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
A lot of people stop before they’re even close to what they’re capable of doing. It was like, “Let’s see how far we can take this.” That was a really impactful lesson. I think the biggest is that most of my successes in life have come from getting comfortable being uncomfortable and doing things I didn’t want to do or that I’ve sacrificed to do. It really changed my mindset and how I handle challenges in business and family life.
The physical [pain] goes away but the mental toughness stays with you.

After meeting the inexhaustible Navy SEAL David Goggins at a 24-hour, 100-mile relay race in San Diego (Goggins ran the entire race himself), a light bulb went on in Itzler’s head.
He cold-called Goggins the next day and asked if he would move in with him for a month.
