Three Keys to Becoming UnstoppableMay 26, 2023
A lot of people are good at what they do. Some are at the elite level, while a few are noticeably unstoppable. However, those who are unstoppable were not born that way. Instead, they developed the mindset and skill set that set them apart from the competition and make them the winners they are in life. Here are three keys to becoming unstoppable that will help you improve your results and have you winning, whether in life, business, or career.
Design your future
The future belongs to those who know what they want and who are not afraid to do what it takes to manifest the life they desire. In designing your life, start with imagining and visualizing what you want your life to look like in the long term. A vision is a mental picture of the future you want to create and is essential in you becoming unstoppable. When you have a vision, you have focus, clarity, and something to work towards. Once you are through with the vision casting process and have conceptualized what the "future" looks like, your next step is mentally returning to the "present" and creating a plan to get you there. So take some time today to write down, sketch, or mind map your future. In other words, please write down your top 5 goals, record a few strategies for achieving each, and get to work now.
Define your why
Before you set out to achieve your "what" in life, you must know "why." This approach means being clear on your purpose and the reason for you pursuing this vision in the first place. For example, the "what" describes the goals you would like to achieve, whereas the "why" describes your purpose or sense of "calling." Your why is what sets you apart from everyone else. It's your purpose for existing now and what inspires you to take action. When defining your why, ensure it's not just based on externals, such as money or external rewards. While these trappings of success are essential, they are never a source of the intrinsic motivation you will need when you encounter obstacles while pursuing your goals. Hence, find something you are willing to die for and then live for it.
Build mental toughness
Mentally tough people possess confidence and resilience that exponentially increase their chances of success in life, business, and sports. But what is mental toughness? It is the ability to perform consistently and productively under pressure and is the high-performance edge of highly successful people. To develop this trait of unstoppable people:
- Stay positive by fortifying your inner self with positive self-talk.
- In addition, engage in visualization, which consists of forming a mental image of a situation or outcome you want to achieve.
- Learn to manage your emotion through breathing exercises and relaxation techniques such as the centering breath exercise, which help to disarm anxiety and reset emotional and psychological states.
So if you want to be unstoppable, you need to design your future, define your "why," and improve your mental toughness, which will assist you in thriving under pressure and staying in control of your life during challenging moments.
