Imagine you and your friend went for an interview with the same skill sets, same salary and same knowledge. But you are selected and your friend isn’t.
Imagine a group of three friends starting a business, failing over and over again and then after few years, one of them suddenly starts a successful venture while the other two returns to their normal day job.
Imagine a place where all the people have given up on their dreams and working paycheck to paycheck and one person comes up to inspire them to do more and chase their dreams.
In the above examples, what is the difference between others and the one person who stands apart from everyone else?
It’s our attitude at any stage in life that determines our altitude in life.
With this, here are 6 attitude quotes on how to create an unstoppable life.
When a child learns to walk and falls down 50 times, he never thinks to himself, ” May be this isn’t for me?”
Just think for a moment. What stops us? Is it the external conditions or our own doubts and fears?
You know that success will take time. You know that you’ll fail again and again.
Then why do you stop everytime you fail?
A child doesn’t stop learning to walk when he falls. He gets up again.
Just recall your childhood. If such a small version of you can learn anything, why can’t a grown up like you?
To be unstoppable, you just need to continue trying. Get up when you fail. Try one more time.
Unstoppable means one who cannot be stopped. And if you don’t stop, you become unstoppable. It’s that simple.
Everytime you fail, you are one step closer to success. This attitude is what makes you unstoppable.
Prove yourself to yourself, not others.
Too many of us are trying to show to others when we make mistakes that we are not that bad and that they can trust us.
But you know what’s wrong in trying to please others? We lose our true selves.
In constantly trying to prove yourself to others, you will lose the focus on what you want to truly accomplish.
Moreover, when you finally prove yourself to someone else, you’ll find that they don’t care at all. You were better off trying to prove yourself.
If you prove yourself to yourself, you don’t need anyone else’s opinion.
It will never be perfect. make it work.
Waiting has become a habit in our society. We wait for trains, buses, grocery stores and that’s all okay. But why wait to create your perfect life?
Life will never be perfect. You have to get comfortable with imperfections.
Start where you are with what you have.
Reid Hoffmanm the founder of Linkedin has truly said:
“If you aren’t embarrassed by the first version of your product, you shipped too late.” – Reid Hoffman.
Don’t wait for a perfect moment or a perfect product. Start now and make it perfect along the way.
The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.
What happens with most of the people when they fail?
They give up.
And why do only few succeed?
Because they never give up.
But what makes them keep going? Have you ever asked this question to them or to yourself?
One of my mentor had to say about this.
When people don’t give up on their dreams, it’s because of their attitude. They don’t let fear stop them from getting up again after failing and starting again from zero.
When people fail, they are afraid of starting over again. And they give up.
Don’t let it happen to you. Change your attitude towards life.
It’s a game. And failure is a part of game.
It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.
Have you noticed how people start panicking even before beginning a task and then raise their hands up for not completing it? I am sure it has happened with all of us at some point in our lives.
There is one parameter which will decide at the beginning of difficult task whether you’ll complete it or not.
When we are afraid of task even before starting, we have already lost hope. Hence, our mind will always try to justify this behaviour.
Same if with positive attitude. If we are prepared for the most difficult task and decide to finish it successfully, we’ll do anything in our hands to finish it successfully.
Before you judge me, make sure you are perfect.
Too many of us while chasing our dreams, are carried away by the negative comments and feedback of others to stop following our dreams.
But what we fail to ask them is have they been on this path before? Chances are very rare.
People love giving advice but advice should come from a person who has already tried and tested what we are trying to do.
Most people are imperfect and trying to advice everyone to be perfect. They are trying to justify their mistakes by allowing us to make more mistakes. They will criticize you for being wrong when they have been wrong their whole life.
Stay away from such people. And don’t let them judge you if they are not perfect.
In fact, no one is perfect. Hence, there is no chance anyone should judge you.
We only need a little inspiration or a sentence to help us get back on track. These attitude quotes are the most inspiring ones and will help you guide through any difficulty in life.
Go ahead. Stop being afraid. Make things happen.
