There are many ways to create success. One of the chief ways is to become unstoppable. This happens when your passion, desire and willingness to do whatever it takes meld. When this happens it creates an unstoppable force and nothing will be able to keep you from achieving your goals.
When I look back over the times I attained success it was clearly when I was unstoppable. The ingredients that go into becoming unstoppable are passion, desire and the willingness to do whatever it takes. Another key ingredient is to never entertain the idea of giving up. Getting my doctorate was one of the most challenging things I have ever done. I managed to cram seven years into a three-year program. It took more time, energy and money than I had ever imagined. The sacrifices were greater than anything I could possibly have anticipated, but I persevered. I was unstoppable. I had the passion. I wanted that degree more than anything, and I had the desire and the willingness to jump through all the hoops and work through all kinds of obstacles. Although there were many times I broke down in tears, I never seriously thought of giving up. I wanted it too badly.
I can only imagine that people who climb Mt. Everest and do other amazing physical feats have the same commitment and desire I had when earning the degree. If you truly want to be a success and achieve the goal, you have to think of yourself as unstoppable. The idea of giving up can never be considered and you have to be willing to do whatever it takes. When all of the key elements are present, you will create an environment where success is certain.
Being unstoppable is about being fierce. Being unstoppable doesn’t mean that you won’t come up against obstacles and challenges. What it means is you will figure a way around or even better yet through whatever is in your way. If you want to achieve your goals, you have to create the mindset of being unstoppable. Once you decide that you will succeed the universe will work with you and support you in making your journey a success.
