Almost nobody knows this about me, but I’m a huge fan of Australian singer-songwriter, Sia.
Quite a few of her songs are powerfully motivational, and they get me pumped up when I need it most – like Unstoppable, which I was belting out in the car this morning:
I’m a Porsche with no brakes
Yeah, I win every single game
I’m so powerful
I don’t need batteries to play
I’m so confident, yeah, I’m unstoppable today…”
The whole chorus is a powerful affirmation!
So what does it take to become unstoppable?
It’s something that took Tracy and I a long time to learn.
I mean, it took me 10 years to finally leave my day job and become an entrepreneur.
It took Tracy and I a LONG time to step out from the “safety net” of being a niche smoothie blog into a less-niched, personal development blog that we had dreamed about for the past few years.
We were unstoppable when we emerged from bankruptcy during the recession to then live in the tropics for six months while we built a six-figure online business.
One thing that I’ve learned is that if you want to change something in your life, or you want to turn your dream into a reality, then you need to become unstoppable.
You need to cultivate unstoppable confidence.
You need to hold your intent so firmly in your mind that nothing can shake it – not fear, not doubt, not even failure.
I think most of us would say that we have a certain degree of confidence.
But when it comes to really rocking the boat and making big, bold, and beautiful things happen in our lives, we often find that our confidence isn’t what we think it is.
We temper our dreams because of our fear.
We accept and tolerate, rather than change and create.
We hold onto the mediocre instead of leaping outside of our comfort zone.
Perhaps a dear friend’s comment sows a seed of self-doubt.
Or a past failure scares us into inaction.
But here’s another thing I’ve learned: Success with anything in life is 90% mindset.
It’s the confidence and clarity and certainty that make certain people unstoppable.
And the good news is that these are all traits that anybody – especially you – can cultivate, grow, and develop. When you do, amazing things will manifest in your life.
