Learn To Be Unbeatable
Mar 08, 2011

The most important single quality that you can develop in your lifetime is the quality of becoming “unbeatable!”

Learn To Be Unbeatable

A few weeks ago, I sat with the VP of Marketing in an interview with a candidate to be responsible for our Office Coaching Program.
The candidate had an excellent education from a fine college. He was extremely well dressed, physically fit, handsome and articulate. On the outside, he appeared to be everything that the company would want in an employee who could be groomed for higher responsibility.

After the interview, my VP turned to me and asked, “What do you think?”

I said, “He would not be good for the job.”

The VP of Marketing was a bit shocked and asked, “Why?”

I said, “He has all the qualities we would desire but one.

His life has been far to easy up till now.

He has not yet learned to overcome; he has not learned to be unbeatable.”
I knew the role would require tremendous internal strength, resilience and unbeatable determination to overcome obstacles and difficulties to succeed in our competitive marketplace.

He had not yet developed the spirit of being unbeatable because he had not had anything to overcome, yet!

During the last 30 years, I have learned the way that I can predict with 95% probability a person success is; Do they have the ability to overcome difficulties, adversities, obstacles and setbacks because it is the most valuable quality that you can develop.

I call it the "Unbeatable Spirit" – and once you commit to it, it will enable you to use all of your other strengths and gifts to the utmost.

The wonderful thing is that, the more unbeatable you become the easier it is to bounce back from defeat and disappointment, which results in you becoming stronger and stronger and even more unbeatable.
