How to Be Absolutely Fucking Unstoppable

1187296049_4ca280905eWanna do great things?

Make up your mind that NOTHING is gonna stop you.


No one else has a say, unless you give ’em that right.

It’s literally all up to you.

Your success or failure has nothing to do with anything else, anyone else, and anything that is not YOU.

Thinking that something or someone can stand in your way is giving away all your power and giving permission to the world to choose your destiny for you.

Stories in your head about why you can’t do it—the kids, your lack of skills and education, it’s too late, too early, you’re too young, too old, or the dog ate your homework and pissed on your good shoes—are works of pure fiction unless you choose to make them your reality.

If your reason “why” is big enough, you’ll find a way to do it.

If you’re ready and willing to do whatever it takes, even if that means being laughed at and taking a few beatings along the way, then cut the umbilical cord connected to what the world thinks and move forward with intense determination that nothing or no one is gonna stop you.

If you’re scared, that’s good. And if you if doubt yourself, that’s even better.

Fear and self-doubt are two giant signs that you’re onto something big, and to keep moving forward.

Choosing your destiny is your fucking birthright, as long as you’re willing to put in the work.

Put one foot in front of the other, boldly move forward, and do not stop for anything or anyone.

Just keep moving forward.

Remain steadfast in your determination that NOTHING or no one can defeat you.

Do not worry about what others say about how great or shitty you are.

Their opinions don’t matter, only yours does.

Even if the entire world seems to be against you.

Take it from Gandhi, First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” 

Never forget that there are people without legs to walk with or eyes to see who are doing shit most of us can’t even fathom.

There are people who were beaten every day as a child and told they would never amount to anything who’ve created art so great the rest of the world stares at it in awe.

Every word the critics utter is just another sign that you’re on the right path.

Every thought that says you “can’t” just means you’re about to create a whole new reality and to keep moving forward.

Do what you’ve been doing and keep getting more of the same.

Or let your Inner Giant out of its cage to rise up and do some seriously awesome shit.

The choice is yours

Talk soon,

Big Chris

    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      thanks Marco, I actually used to live in Lubbock and then Cedar Hill outside of Dallas

      drove a cab in Dallas-Fort Worth area – crazy

  5. If you’re scared, that’s good. And if you if doubt yourself, that’s even better

    I love that part,that’s exactly what I needed to hear, great stuff Chriss!

  6. Christina Thompson says:

    I freakin’ love you. Keep writing. You’re awesome. 😀

  7. 1 smooth Colombian black coffee and 2 minutes of my time to read this with breakfast and I’m fired up feeling unstoppable and ready to conquer the world! Thanks again Chris.

  8. Brian Hayes says:

    Hi Chris,

    That was a great post, lifted my spirits this morning. Just what I needed , there is stuff I want to do and the voices in my head are always holding me back and giving me reasons not to try this or that . There are always hundreds of reasons not to change your job and go out and make your own career doing something that inspires you . Especially if you are married and have kids and all the responsibilities that go with that. It makes it more difficult to take a chance on something but as you say if you don’t let anything stop you , you can achieve great things and with any luck in the long term be an inspiration to your family and friends. Thanks Chris , I really enjoy your blogs! (My first time ever posting anything on one of these so I must of !)

    AWESOME Chris!!! I sense a little pissed-off-ness and love the preaching of the truth. Keep preachin’ brudha. You have listeners.

    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      hey thanks John, I appreciate your words as always

      I’ll keep em coming man, glad you like em

  10. Chris,
    Thanks again for a great post. A friend of mine and I were just talking about how we werent the young guys full of fire we used to be. Thanks for making me realize that argument was just excuses! I already feel the fire butning this morning!
    Rock on,

  11. yes I love the quote with gandhi in it. So good your article inspires me alot thank you !

  12. Chris Banks says:

    Thanks. These words were needed today.

  13. Amen to that brother… Rise Above!

  14. Michael Gallaher says:

    Feeling like a slug today and then I saw your post.
    Its obvious that if we can get out of ourselves and look at what is happening around us it is easy to take the next first step to awesome.
    Needed the reminder man, thanks so much. As always u hit it out of the park again.
    Best Regards.

  15. All the more reason for me to finish writing/editing my novel, finish the multitude of half finished novels I have written, stay true to my new kettle bell jogging routine (not at the same time of course), get my ecommerce site off of the ground etc etc etc. I’ve got a long list.

  16. Thanks for that Chris. Heading deep into the mtns in a few hours to give one of the best efforts of my life on one of the hardest rock climbs I’ve ever tried. My mantra tomorrow: I AM UNSTOPPABLE! Train hard, go huge, ain’t nobody gonna live the dream for ya!

  17. How can I subscribe, like or share when I would be
    totally ashamed if my Mom looked over my shoulder?
    You really might be unstoppable if you were bright
    enough to use language which is acceptable in
    polite company.

    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      uh, this blog probably isn’t for you John, there are tons of blogs out there for “polite company” with lots of great information, i’d find a few of those and make your mom proud

      thanks for chiming in

    • Tim Gorman says:

      let him be & do HIS thing; he clearly speaks to many that others would not reach. “one succeeds according to his uniqueness” !!! now, go be you!

  18. Dude, this is just the shizzfuckingnizzle. You inspire like no one I’ve ever seen. Respect brother.


    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      wow brother, right on, thank you

      dig the name of your blog btw, A Call to Action

      great fucking name

      • Thanks bro!

        But had I known that “Call to Action” was such a crowded search term thanks to all the political b.s. and marketing crap, I probably would’ve gone with something different. Not to mention that now I have to compete with Greg Plitt. Greg fucking Plitt!

        How can I compete against that dude?

        That’s what I get for being an ignorant apolitical bastard.

        • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

          not ignorance at all brother

          My friend Clay Collins gave me some great advice

          “Just use your name as your URL, cuz whatever term you’re in love with now you probably won’t be in love with in a year, but you’re name will still be your name”

  19. Dave Ayash says:

    Great post man. yes i’m scared because the personal trainer’s where i work at can sense that i will be on to something huge especially the guys who have been there when i’ve first started which is almost about a year ago. Everyday i don’t get the result, i will keep coming back for more.
    Your a real inspiration. I am glad i have found you in this time of need.

    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      hey thanks Dave, yeah push forward brother

      as you start to succeed people will always get jealous

      had it happen when I started my training business

      it took off, and I could tell some of the guys who’d been at it for years didn’t like me for it

      fuck em

      move forward

  20. Tim Gorman says:

    I like your posts very much. I believe God is with you. I realize your very busy but…Please pray for me, my family & my business. thank you for doing what your doing, sincerely, Tim from Ohio.

  21. Hi Chris,

    Glad I stumbled upon your site. I really enjoy your style as well as the straight forward content. You have inspired me to get back on my horse and help make a difference in others lives. Funny how when your focus is on helping others get what they want- the universe delivers the same back to you!


    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      hey thanks Charles

      yeah crazy how that works, everything comes back around, either negative or positive

      at least that’s been my experience

  22. Chris — your comment — “people without legs to walk with or eyes to see are doing shit most of us can’t even fathom” — really hit home with me. Two weeks ago I visited an organization in Minneapolis (where I live) called Blind, Inc. This organization offers programs and tools to help blind people live normal and independent lives. The stuff they do is amazing and the people who work there (most of them visually impaired) are truly an inspiration.

    While I was visiting Blind, Inc. the following thought kept coming back to me: “the barriers that I have to deal with are nothing in comparison to what the staff and the students at Blind, Inc. have to deal with every day. If these great people can do what they are doing with no vision, what am I really capable of accomplishing in my life.”

    Chris, I believe that most people put limits on themselves and grossly underestimate what they are capable of doing. I know I have been guilty of that in the past. My visit to Blind, Inc. has made me rethink what really is possible. And your post has been a great reminder to continue this discovery of what is truly possible. “NO LIMITS BABY!!”

    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      Jon sounds like you learned a powerful lesson brother

      We could all use a trip to place like that to help put things in perspective ya know

      thanks for sharing man

  23. Spot on, as always! Facebook decided to “recommend” you to me about 2 weeks ago, and I’m damn sure glad it did! Keep up the awesome things you’re doing, and thanks once again for the incredible motivation you bring to my life!


    • Chris McCombs Chris McCombs says:

      hey thanks Matt, I appreciate the kind words and that you took the time to comment my man



  24. Hello Chris,

    Your messages are clear enough and I have been living my life in the same positive vein for many years.

    They would however, be much more enjoyable to read without the foul language.

    Mind you, I am not judging you, I’m sure you’re a nice person (in person) but the swear words are insulting to the reader and completely unnecessary, so for that reason I won’t subscribe to your blog.

    “How To Be Absolutely Unstoppable” may be a good title for the book you said you’re writing.

    Best of continued success in your business and in your life. 🙂


  25. Thanks a lot for this. I moved half way a Ross the country to get in on something big. Nothing is going to stnad in my way. What a morale booster.

  26. Whenever I need any motivation to do anything….I just gotta read this blog…and it gets done automatically…

  27. Leanne Ellington says:

    I was raised to think that fear and doubt makes a person weak or powerless. No one gave me the memo that it just means you’re human…and how you respond to those fears is what counts. Do they hold you back? Do they keep you from speaking up and sharing your truth? They don’t have to, right? You’ve shown us that time and time again Chris. Life throws you a curveball, and you stand up and not only throw it right back, but you’re not afraid to say “damn that shit was hard…and it tested me!”. Thank you my friend for sharing your truth and speaking from your heart no matter what life may or may not be throwing you on any given day. I’ve simply seen you show up and be REAL every single day since I’ve known you.

  28. This is exactly what I needed to hear today Chris! THANK YOU!!!

  29. True, true, true! Great! Awesome! Preach!

  30. Chris,

    If I could I would hug you now! Don’t care how gay that sounds…I am going through some serious shit right now and THIS was a masterful piece of writing. Yep, shared this with every Group on FB and Twitter 😉 Keep the writing up champ. Thank you a lot.


  31. James Kidd says:

    Chris, you really are a BAMF (bad-ass-mother- I think you get it) I love reading your stuff! I just got my first freelance writing gig of the year and have a date with a heartbreakingly beautiful woman tonight. How? By getting out of my own way and looking for ways to make things happen instead of complaining why they weren’t.

    Great post as usual.


  32. Thanks again Chris. Glad i came across you. I’m a recent subscriber and loving your words and attitude to life. I am taking action here, i.e. i am writing and posting a song a day for 100 days on my FB page. Just a disciplinary exercise for me really, but as a musician/composer, this is what i should be doing anyway. Developing healthier daily routines is where i’m starting as of yesterday. Your words and down to earth style resonate with me easily. Take care friend.


  33. you are amazing, I am very impressed and that advice is the best a man can tell you. Well my dream is to change this world, but not in a small way.. I will be the world savior..Ps I am not crazy or stupid i know how hard it is politics, war and more but If someone wants to do something nothing can stop you right ?

  34. Jim Skelton says:

    I’m 59 near 60 and just went thru a Bankruptcy, lost a fortune. Felt like killing myself about a year ago. But people like you, and this Kick Ass Post is what saved me. Right now I feel like i am 20 years old and the world cannot stop me. I know I be back on top before to long. Thanks

  35. Thanks! Really needed to read this today! ^_^

  36. Thanks for this..

    this should be my mantra.

  37. Melayahm says:

    My problem is it’s not other people that are stopping me, it’s me. Got an article for that?

  38. Hey Chris,

    Great article something I needed to read right now and phrased just right. My struggles are no worse than anyone else, I just quit my job taking a risk in another career and have fallen flat on my face. I’m pounding the pavement daily with bills stacking up and savings falling down this article has brightened the path up a little bit for me.

    I also wanted to commend you on commenting on just about every single post! I don’t know you but, you rock bud.



  39. This was seriously amazing. God bless!

    – Charesa

  40. Lisa Tozer says:

    Thank you for this post. I’m glad I read it today – I needed it! Time to get off my ass and unleash 5 feet and 100 lbs. of ‘awesome’ on the world! 🙂

  41. Trishla Maru says:

    This post gave me what I needed on this day. Thank you so much for the post. Time to be more awesome!

  42. My 15 year old son sent me this post and I love it!
    Keep doing what you are doing people out here need this!

  43. Connor McGregor is this and that is all you need to point people towards 🙂 !

  44. A lot of people need to read this. Can tell you’re very inspired with what you do! Thanks for the words, Chris.

  45. Mind blowing Post Chris! Seriously i am inspired with this post.

  46. Big Chris!
    I first found this post a couple of years ago and I just wanted to share with you that I have kept it open in my Safari on my iPhone through 2 phones and I read it once or twice a month, every month.

    It has less to do with self-improvement and more to do with not lying to or bullshitting myself. It’s easy to play the victim, to make excuses to pull the shade over our own eyes just to maintain our egos and feel all good and fuzzy on the inside.

    Comfort isnt necessarily a good thing.

    Thanks again my friend!


  47. Thanks Chris! I absolutely needed this. I’ve been running with this youtube channel of mine, it’s small but it’s gotten to the point now where I’ve gotten a critic. He’s been commenting on a regular basis about everything I’m doing wrong, or what I’m not. Most times I take his criticism and use it as a lesson and figure out what to build on next but it does get to me and I do have some self-doubts at times. This has given me some more perspective and helping me to move forward! Thank you! Stay Awesome! 🙂

  48. I Stumbled upon you and so glad I did…sent this to my two kids who are attending U of O.
    I’m always searching for quotes and articles to keep them positive and motivated and this is by far the best because you speak their language.
    You have definitely found your purpose in life…to inspire and motivate others!
    Thank you Chris…you are amazing!

  49. Thank you Chris for this run down. It’s great there are still lots of interesting and useful pieces out there. We just have to go for them in the quest of becoming unstoppable.

  50. This article is so fucking awesome. Literally charged me & my motivation level is super duper up now. Life & success is all about your thinking & believes. Your life will go to the direction where you want to take it so positive thoughts & attitude is really important for life. Thanks for this motivational blog.
