Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable by Tim S. Grover


“Direct, blunt, and brutally honest, Tim Grover breaks down what it takes to be unstoppable: You keep going when everyone else is giving up, you thrive under pressure, you never let your emotions make you weak. In “The Relentless 13”, he details the essential traits shared by the most intense competitors and achievers in sports, business, and all walks of life. Relentless shows you how to trust your instincts and get in the Zone; how to control and adapt to any situation; how to find your opponent’s weakness and attack. Grover gives you the same advice he gives his world-class clients – “don’t think” – and shows you that anything is possible.

Packed with previously untold stories and unparalleled insight into the psyches of the most successful and accomplished athletes of our time, Relentless shows you how even the best get better – and how you can too.” -Audible

How to be “Unstoppable”

Unstoppable – Daily writing prompt

Sometimes we go through life and feel like nothing is in our control. Why does it seem like everything we want to do is so hard?

At times, I wish I were unstoppable like Juggernaut from X-Men. Metaphorically, I could plow through anything in my path and be an incredible force.

Quick tangent: “What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?” Apparently this is called the irresistible force paradox. Read the wiki page if you wanna make your brain hurt, haha.

Back to the main subject: how do we make ourselves unstoppable so we can accomplish the things we want?

One answer I think of comes from another favorite book of mine Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable, by Tim Grover.

He discusses the concept of a “cleaner,” which is the highest caliber of performer. Michael Jordan, for example, was a cleaner.

A cleaner doesn’t study the competition, he/she works so hard that the competition studies THEM.

Here are some other key ideas about becoming unstoppable from the book:

-constantly striving to become better than who you were yesterday

-training physical strength as well as mental

-being comfortable with being outside your comfort zone

-knowing who you truly are and not making excuses

-we’re all born bad and taught to be good. Harnessing our “dark side” is what helps you get into the zone of complete focus

-working hard, making decisions, and obsessed with the results

-being feared over being liked

-trusting very few people, and those you do trust better not let you down

-never being complacent, always focusing on achieving the next goal.

Overall, it’s a phenomenal read, highly recommend it. I get pumped up from hearing about the concept of a cleaner.
