2. Always be prepared so you have the freedom to act on instinct.
“Just as the yin-yang symbol possesses a kernel of light in the dark, and of dark in the light, creative leaps are grounded in a technical foundation.” — Josh Waitzkin.
Become a master of your craft. While everyone else is relaxing, you’re practicing and perfecting. Learn the left-brained rules in and out so your right brain can have limitless freedom to break the rules and create. Realize, you need 10,000 hours working on something for you to be efficient and creative in your field.
With enhanced consciousness, time will slow down for you. You’ll see things in several more frames than others. While they’re trying to react to the situation, you’ll be able to manipulate and tweak the situation to your liking.
A lot of people are good at what they do. Some are even elite. A select few are completely unstoppable.
Those who are unstoppable are in their own world. They don’t compete with anyone but themselves. You never know what they will do—only that you will be forced to respond. Even though they don’t compete with you, they make you compete with them.
What makes one unstoppable, what do these select few do? What do they know? Do you want to learn? By the end of this series, you should be able to know what to do to be unstoppable.
1. Don’t think—know and act.
“Don’t think. You already know what you have to do, and you know how to do it. What’s stopping you?” — Tim Grover.
Rather than analyzing and thinking, act. Attuned to your senses, and with complete trust in yourself, do what you instinctively feel you should. As Oprah has said, “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.”
The moment you start thinking, you’ve already lost. Thinking swiftly pulls you out of the zone. Steve Jobs in his commencement speech in Harvard university said “listen to the inner voice in you. Do not let the voice of others drown your inner intuition. ” Remember, you are not paid for what you know but you are paid for what you do with what you know. ACT!
