I recently watched a motivating speech from Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, that he was giving to some college kids.
He was talking about all of the obstacles he has faced and what his mentality is for winning in life. It’s clearly worked for him!
Whether you like him or not, you’ve got to give it to him for what he has achieved. A former wrestler, to one of the biggest movie stars presently, a growing portfolio of successful businesses and brands, along with a social media following in the hundreds of millions.
Johnson constantly tells himself that nobody is going to stop him. If he wants something, he goes after it. He won’t let anybody stop him. He looks at it like having his back up against a wall all the time because if he does that, he only has one way he can move, and that’s forward.
The part that resonated with me is the self-talk about nobody is going to stop him. That is powerful. Really powerful. To me, it puts things in perspective. Telling yourself that every day, and believing it, makes it pretty hard to let excuses be a reason as to why you aren’t achieving what you want.
It’s something that I live by on a daily basis now. No matter what, no matter who, no matter the circumstances…
Nobody is going to fucking stop me.
