Unstoppable or Competitiveness?

Unstoppable is a great way to describe my mentality. Most people who know me see my desire to win as competitiveness but I see it differently. The way I see it being extra competitive is about beating an opponent. What happens when that opponent is you? Is it still competitiveness? Or some deep drive, a deep genetic desire that always drives you to be better? The way to be unstoppable is to never let your monkey mind win. What’s the monkey mind? It’s that voice in the back of your mind that’s always telling you that what you’re currently doing is inadequate. It’s that voice that tells you to quit. It’s the voice that tells you to stop. I’m sure that you’ve heard that voice and listened to it. Other times you’ve told it to shut up. I’ve done both. I’ve been there. What is the key to being unstoppable? Well, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is you have the control over your monkey mind. Ultimately, you have the ability to forge ahead. To push through your current obstacle. You have that power. The bad news is sometimes the fight may not feel worth the effort. Sometimes it seems like all the cards are stacked against you. That there’s no way out. You know what that is? It’s the monkey mind doubling down on its bet. There’s always a way out. There’s always a solution. That’s the way to be unstoppable.
