Do you want to be Unstoppable in life?
Do you want to be unstoppable in your life and career or do you want to know if you have the qualities of being unstoppable?
Chances are if you are already unstoppable you won’t be reading this right now.
So for you who wants to be unstoppable, this post is for you.
These are the 15 things you must do to be unstoppable in life, career and even in your relationships.
Many people get paralyzed by overthinking things that should have been easy to do. They get bogged down by every tiny detail in what they plan on doing and in most cases, that thing never gets done.
One typical example of paralysis by contemplation can be seen in our political systems called congress. It is no wonder it seems as if any administration that comes into office always seems to not be doing enough.
They might have good plans and good ones for that matter (like all the promises said during campaigning) but when the bill is on the table to implement, “congress” stalls. Lobbying from one place to another and one person to another.
Now that I am thinking about it, it is a wonder they even do anything in those four years.
This overthinking issue does not only belong to the politicians, it also goes to the board of most publicly owned companies.
When an idea is supposed to be implemented a committee is formed. (God, do I hate committees). They just sit around giving reasons why something will not work. I think they set up a “committee” so that not one person would have to take the blame if things were to go wrong.
I heard that Richard Branson once went public with his companies and seeing that decisions get implemented slowly, decided to reverse the situation so that he can make his own decisions and implement them himself and fast too.
You might have also been struck with the sickness of indecision, that’s okay and that is why you are reading this post.
Don’t over think things.
If you have done your research well, act and don’t look back.
Follow the boy-scout Motto
“Be Prepared”. The boy scout motto should not only be seen as a boy scout thing alone, you should also follow it whether you are a boy scout or not or even if you are a woman.
Preparation helps you to catch opportunities by the neck when it comes knocking.
People say some people are luckier than others.
They prepared better.
Know more than your colleagues about your business or career and when time comes for a promotion, who do you think it will be give to?
To the person that has put more into himself or herself and has more to offer.
When others are playing, you should be working on your craft to better yourself and when the opportunity comes knocking, it will find you ready.
Beat your Records
Try not to compete with any other person except yourself. Most people are in constant competition with others and that makes them unhappy because if you are always competing with someone, you will always be looking behind you if they are close or before you to see how you can catch up.
The only person you should be in competition with is yourself.
When you set records, try to beat them.
And beat those ones.
And beat those ones also.
This is an uncut recipe for happiness.
Never give excuses for not doing what you are supposed to do and definitley don’t blame others for your shortcomings as it shows weakness and irresponsibility.
When you screw up, own it.
Know that you messed up, correct yourself and move on.
Keep Educating Yourself
Educating yourself either by studying or by surrounding yourself with advisers and people smarter than you are is a sure way to stay ahead.
Know your Why
This is a major thing. If you don’t know that “why” for whatever it is you do you may falter. A strong why will be the motivation you need to push you to attain more.
Do you know why do you want that girl or guy?
Why do you want anything it is that you want?
Know that reason and chances are you will never give up on achieving it.
Goals are like a compass or GPS. They show you where you want to go and what route you should take to get there.
The best goals you should write are goals that are clear on what you should accomplish and that have time limits on them.
Simplicity beats complicated anytime. Simplify your life.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” – Da Vinci
When you simplify your life it becomes easier and bearable. You will seem to have everything in control and you get more done that way.
Lose the Envy
Don’t be envious of other people’s success. It will only make you bitter and a pain in the ass to be around.
But let their success serve as a motivation for you to also work hard and own your own success. That way you can be happy for yourself and for the other person.
That’s double happiness in my book and the world will be a better place for it.
Congratulate them and if they have the time, ask them for the secret to their success and emulate it so that you too can be successful.
It is okay to be ambitious and to work hard but rest is a must.
You cannot work yourself to death and you must give your body enough time to rest so that you can be fully refreshed to continue your work.
Inner Locus of Motivation
Don’t let the reason you want to be rich be because of someone else.
Your motivation should come from within and that should guide you to great heights.
Don’t be Satisfied
When you set a goal for yourself and you reach it, set another goal higher than the first.
When you do this consistently you will begin to work at a more higher level and frequency than most people. You start working on a higher stratosphere that most people cannot reach.
You will be in a league of your own.
Don’t be Afraid to Fail
Fear of failure has been the number reason most people don’t try new things because of the ridicule and mockery they might get.
Fear holds many people back and you should find a way to go around it, under it or go through it. This means that you feel the fear and do what you want to do either ways.
There is no getting round this one. if you want to succeed and try new things, you will feel fear but you should still do it.
Service your Body
Take good care of your body as it is the instrument that carries the mind where you come up with your ideas.
Regular exercises is a must of you want to keep your body functioning at its optimal capacity.
At least three times in a day, exercise for about 30 minutes to an hour. You can do more if you’d like but 30 minues should be your absolute minimum.
Never, Never, Never Quit
I had to leave this one for the last because it is somewhat the most important here on this list.
No matter what you are going through, never give up.
Unstoppable people always get what they want because they never relent.
Do you want to be unstoppable and are you willing to do what unstoppable people do?
