Do These 30 Things If You Want to Be Unstoppable
Number 1: Don’t think – Know and act: Rather than analyzing and thinking, act. Attuned to your senses, and with complete trust in yourself, do what you instinctively feel you should.
Number 2: Always be prepared, so you have the freedom to act on instinct: Become a master of your craft. While everyone is relaxing, you’re practicing and perfecting.
Number 3: Don’t be motivated by money or anything external: It’s never been about money, prestige, or anything else outside of you. Take these things away, and nothing changes for you.
Number 4: Never be satisfied: Even after you achieve your goals, you’re not content. For you, it’s not even about the goal. It’s about the climb to see how far you can push yourself.
Number 5: Always be in control: Unlike other people, you are in control of what you put in your body, how you spend your time, and how long you stay in the zone.
Number 6: Be true to yourself: Only one in three Americans report being happy, relentless and, unstoppable people because they purge everything from their life they hate.
Number 7: Never let off the pressure: Most people can handle pressure in small doses. But when left to their own devices, they let off the pressure and relax. Pressure is what keeps you alert and active.
Number 8: Don’t be afraid of the consequences of failure: Most people stay close to the ground, where it’s safe. But when you choose to fly high, the fall may kill you. And you’re OK with that.
Number 9: Don’t’ compete with others: Make them compete with you: Most people compete with others. They continuously check-in to see what the competition is doing. You zone out all the external noise and zone into your internal pressure to produce.
Number 10: Never stop learning: Ordinary people seek entertainment. Extraordinary people seek education and learning. Never stop improving and honing your skills and knowledge.
Number 11: Success isn’t enough – it only increases the pressure: When you are relentless, success only increases the pressure to do more.
Number 12: Don’t get crushed by success: Most people can’t handle success, authority, or privilege. No external noise can push harder than your own internal pressure. There is no destination.
Number 13: Completely own it when you screw up: No blame. No deception or illusion. When you mess up, you own it.
Number 14: Let your work speak for itself: Deep work is: Rare, high value, and non-replicable. Shallow work is: Common, low value, replicable. Deep work is so good; it can’t be ignored.
Number 15: Always work on your mental strength: The better you can be under pressure, the further you’ll go than anyone else. The best training you will ever do is mental training.
Number 16: Confidence is your greatest asset: A person’s ability to do anything hard is more a reflection of their level of confidence than their actual ability.
Number 17: Surround yourself with people who remind you of the future, not the past: Surrounding yourself with people who you want to be like allows you a fresh slate.
Number 18: Let things go, but never forget: You need to immediately and completely forgive anyone who has wronged you. However, forgiveness doesn’t mean you forget.
Number 19: Have clear goals: According to loads of psychology research, the most motivating goals are clearly defined and time-bound. But when you crave the results so much that the work is irrelevant, your aim should be directed straight at the outcomes you want.
Number 20: Respond immediately, rather than analyzing or stalling: Train yourself to respond immediately when you feel you should do something. Stop questioning yourself. Don’t analyze it. Just act.
Number 21: Choose simplicity over complication: It’s easy to be complicated. Cutting to the core and hitting the truth is hard because it’s simple. Wisdom is timeless and simple. Learn wisdom and choose it.
Number 22: Never be jealous or envious of someone else’s accomplishments: Being unstoppable means you genuinely want what’s best for everyone – even those you would consider your competition. Jealousy and envy are the egos – which operates out of fear.
Number 23: Take the shot every time: Most people don’t want to take the shot. Fear of failure paralyzes them. The only way to become unstoppable is if you stop thinking about it. Just take the shot and make adjustments you need after the fact.
Number 24: Don’t get caught up in the results of your success. Always remain focused on what got you those results, the work: It can get easy to “ride the wave” of your previous work. Keep practicing. Perfect your craft.
Number 25: Think and act 10X: Most people – even those you deem to be “world-class” – are not operating at 10X. In truth, you could surpass anyone if you radically stretch your thinking and belief system.
Number 26: Set goals that far exceed your current capabilities: If your goals are logical, they won’t force you to create luck. Being unstoppable means your goals challenge you to be someone more than you currently are.
Number 27: Make time for recovery and rejuvenation: When you focus on results, rather than being busy, you’re 100 percent on when you’re working and 100 percent off when you’re not. This not only allows you to be present in the moment but allows you the needed time to rest and recover.
Number 28: Start before you’re ready: Most people wait until they have enough time, money, connections, and credentials. They wait until they feel secure. Unstoppable people started last year, before they had anything.
Number 29: If you need permission, you probably shouldn’t do it: So many people chase whatever worked for other people. They never fully decide what they want to do. No one will ever give you permission to live your dreams.
Number 30: Don’t make exceptions: When you are unstoppable, you will make sure to get what you want. Everything you need to know is already within you. All you need to do is trust yourself and act.
