Read an Excerpt

from the Introduction

Benefits of an Unstoppable Spirit
Progress is not the only benefit of the unstoppable spirit. People's dreams have come true, communities have united and individuals have been inspired to try one more time.

From the greatest global achievement to the most personal accomplishment in our daily lives, the unstoppable spirit is the driving force for positive change and growth. This spirit is the force that breaks through countless personal barriers--barriers of self-doubt, negativity, and our own perceived limitations. It compels us to persist in striving toward our goals.

But how does one develop an unstoppable spirit? Is it only for those with superhuman abilities? Must one be born with a special gift? This book was born out of my own search for the answers to those questions. After reviewing and thoroughly researching the stories of hundreds of candidates for Unstoppable, I found the answer to be a resounding No. These individuals are not "superheroes." Most of them are just like you and me, experiencing their share of disappointments and frustrations. However, even in those moments, these people exhibit a few distinguishing characteristics that separate them from all others. These characteristics enable them to keep going when others would throw in the towel.

Seven Characteristics of Unstoppable People
Seven characteristics surfaced over and over. Unstoppable people:
1. Devote themselves to their true purpose
2. Follow their heart's passion
3. Believe in themselves and their ideas
4. Prepare for challenges
5. Ask for help and build a support team
6. Seek creative solutions
7. Persevere, no matter what the challenges
Fortunately, anyone who has the will to do so can develop these characteristics. To assist you in that process, this book devotes an entire chapter to each trait. The chapters are clearly illustrated with short profiles of people who have exhibited that characteristic. Most of the people in this book possess more than one of these attributes; however, I have placed each story in the chapter where it best demonstrates a specific characteristic.

In addition to the profiles of unstoppable individuals, each chapter includes a special feature called "In Their Own Words," an assortment of quotes, little-known facts, poems, and cartoons that support each chapter's theme. In various formats, you will meet dozens of individuals who transformed their dreams into reality. Each one has a different story to tell, and yet each experienced unstoppable results....

Creating the Unstoppable You!
At the end of each chapter, you will find "Your Personal Action Plan" with exercises and a step-by-step guide that will enable you to further develop each characteristic in your own life.

Maybe your goal is not to end world hunger, run a multibillion-dollar company, or make the cover of Time. Maybe your aspirations and desires focus on starting a new business, making a career change or doing volunteer work in your community. Perhaps you've been wanting to run for a school board position, complete a 5K race or pursue the passion for music that you abandoned for more practical pursuits. The size of the goal is not what constitutes an unstoppable spirit. It is personified in anyone who identifies a goal--something that really matters to that person--and refuses to give up until that goal is achieved.
