How to Be Absolutely Fucking Unstoppable

Shares

1187296049_4ca280905eWanna do great things?

Make up your mind that NOTHING is gonna stop you.

NOTHING

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

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 !)

      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!

Your a real inspiration. I am glad i have found you in this time of need.

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!!”

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. 🙂

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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! 🙂
