Doing These 7 Things Can Make You Unstoppable In Life

Doing These 7 Things Can Make You Unstoppable In Life

Humans are social beings. Being so, we tend to compare ourselves with others especially about status in life and about wealth or success. Usually, when we see that we’re lagging behind, we lose motivation and confidence. Don’t allow this to happen.

These are things you can do to turn yourself into an unstoppable force:

1. Don’t think—just discern and act

Instead of analyzing and over thinking, make a step, take deliberate actions. Since you’re well attuned to your senses, and you have absolute trust in yourself, use your instincts, do what feels right. Let me quote Oprah in connection to this: “Every right decision I have ever made has come from my gut. Every wrong decision I’ve made was the result of me not listening to the greater voice of myself.”[1]

Right at the moment you start analyzing, you’ve lost the battle. Using logic will pull you out of the zone.

2. Don’t be motivated by money or anything external

Having high-end gadgets, classy clothes, and expensive cars is nice, but, for truly successful people like you, it’s never been about the moola, status, or anything external. Take away all those and you’ll still be happy and successful. You’ll still have the drive to push yourself to the limit in order to reach your personal goals. Having these external things won’t make you self-destruct like many others, either.

3. Never be satisfied

For you, contentment is hard to find, even after achieving a goal. Actually, it’s not about the goal at all; it’s about the climb. To you, the real question is—how far can you push yourself?

Some will say you’re ungrateful! Absolutely not. The truth is—because of the things you have achieved, you’re humbled and grateful. This is why you’ll never be lukewarm or lazy. You’ll always be hot for success.

Jim Rohn said, “the way to enjoy life best is to wrap up one goal and start right on the next one. Don’t linger too long at the table of success, the only way to enjoy another meal is to get hungry.”[2]

4. Be true to yourself

Studies show 70 percent of US employees[3] hate their jobs and only one out of three Americans interviewed said they were happy.[4] Unstoppable people throw away everything they hate from their life.

Gain self-respect and confidence in order to live life the way you want to live it. If something is wrong in your life, change it right away!

5. Don’t be afraid of the consequences of failure

Most people choose to stay close to the ground. Why? It’s safe to remain there. If they fall, it won’t hurt that bad. However, you choose to fly high. Just one fall may kill you. Just one miss and everything stops. You’re fine with that. You view this world in a different way after all. In your radical view, there’s no ceiling; there’s no floor. You say it’s all in the mind. If something goes wrong — if you fail — you make adjustments, dust off yourself, stand up, and keep going.

6. Keep learning

Regular folks chase entertainment. Phenomenal people pursue education and learning. You can’t stop learning when you desire to be the best. You’re compelled to improve continuously. You keep honing your skills and adding to your knowledge.

Your key is preparation. It gives you power. You paid the bill nobody else wants to pay.

7. Be in control always

Unlike the masses who depend on substances or other factors outside of them, you’re in command of what you take in, how you use time, and how much time you spend in the zone.

You don’t act based on impulse, you rely on your instincts. You do things because you like to, not because you’re obliged to.

Implement these tips, and see how you transform into a dynamo that keeps running and running.

Manage Your Energy so You Can Manage Your Time

Manage Your Energy so You Can Manage Your Time

One of the greatest ironies of this age is that while various gadgets like smartphones and netbooks allow you to multitask, it seems that you never manage to get things done. You are caught in the busyness trap. There’s just too much work to do in one day that sometimes you end up exhausted with half-finished tasks.

The problem lies in how to keep our energy level high to ensure that you finish at least one of your most important tasks for the day. There’s just not enough hours in a day and it’s not possible to be productive the whole time.

You need more than time management. You need energy management

1. Dispel the idea that you need to be a “morning person” to be productive

How many times have you heard (or read) this advice – wake up early so that you can do all the tasks at hand. There’s nothing wrong with that advice. It’s actually reeks of good common sense – start early, finish early. The thing is that technique alone won’t work with everyone. Especially not with people who are not morning larks.

I should know because I was once deluded with the idea that I will be more productive if I get out of bed by 6 a.m. Like most of you Lifehackers, I’m always on the lookout for productivity hacks because I have a lot of things in my plate. I’m working full time as an editor for a news agency, while at the same time tending to my side business as a content marketing strategist. I’m also a travel blogger and oh yeah, I forgot, I also have a life.

I read a lot of productivity books and blogs looking for ways to make the most of my 24 hours. Most stories on productivity stress waking up early. So I did – and I was a major failure in that department – both in waking up early and finishing early.

2. Determine your “peak hours”

Energy management begins with looking for your most productive hours in a day. Getting attuned to your body clock won’t happen instantly but there’s a way around it.

Monitor your working habits for one week and list down the time when you managed to do the most work. Take note also of what you feel during those hours – do you feel energized or lethargic? Monitor this and you will find a pattern later on.

My experiment with being a morning lark proved that ignoring my body clock and just doing it by disciplining myself to wake up before 8 a.m. will push me to be more productive. I thought that by writing blog posts and other reports in the morning that I would be finished by noon and use my lunch break for a quick gym session. That never happened. I was sleepy, distracted and couldn’t write jack before 10 a.m.

In fact that was one experiment that I shouldn’t have tried because I should know better. After all, I’ve been writing for a living for the last 15 years, and I have observed time and again that I write more –and better – in the afternoon and in evenings after supper. I’m a night owl. I might as well, accept it and work around it.

Just recently, I was so fired up by a certain idea that – even if I’m back home tired from work – I took out my netbook, wrote and published a 600-word blog post by 11 p.m. This is a bit extreme and one of my rare outbursts of energy, but it works for me.

3. Block those high-energy hours

Once you have a sense of that high-energy time, you can then mold your schedule so that your other less important tasks will be scheduled either before or after this designated productive time.

Block them out in your calendar and use the high-energy hours for your high priority tasks – especially those that require more of your mental energy and focus. You also need to use these hours to any task that will bring you closer to you life’s goal.

If you are a morning person, you might want to schedule most business meetings before lunch time as it’s important to keep your mind sharp and focused. But nothing is set in stone. Sometimes you have to sacrifice those productive hours to attend to other personal stuff – like if you or your family members are sick or if you have to attend your son’s graduation.

That said, just remember to keep those productive times on your calendar. You may allow for some exemptions but stick to that schedule as much as possible.

There’s no right or wrong way of using this energy management technique because everything depends on your own personal circumstances. What you need to remember is that you have to accept what works for you – and not what other productivity gurus say you should do.

Understanding your own body clock is the key to time management. Without it, you end up exhausted chasing a never-ending cycle of tasks and frustrations.
