The key to unstoppable success



By: Vivek Joshi

As humans, we often find numerous reasons for not starting or achieving something. Often, we even feel stuck in life. However, the reality is, there are countless excuses for not taking action, while there is only one crucial reason for someone to succeed. Those who have identify this key reason have become unstoppable.

In my view, one should never blame anyone else for something they were unable to accomplish or pursue because ultimately, you are solely responsible for it. For example, if you couldn’t acquire a good education because your town lacks quality schools or institutes, it’s true that it’s not your fault. However, in this situation, the responsibility still lies with you. You must take a stand for yourself and your future. Remember that it’s never too late to start. An example of this? Ray Kroc, the founder of the world’s leading fast-food chain, McDonald’s who achieved success at the age of 52!

A similar example is KFC, founded by Colonel Harland Sanders, an entrepreneur who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression. Sanders started the venture on September 24, 1952, at the age of 65. Typically, at that age, people plan for retirement with a comfortable bank balance, a house, and family, intending to relax and enjoy time with their grandchildren. It’s indeed a wonderful scenario if you can retire at 65 with everything you desire, financial security, and a happy family. However, what sets Sanders apart is emerged as an entrepreneur and transformed his roadside restaurant from humble beginnings to incredible success. Today, KFC is the second-largest fast-food chain globally, with more than 25,000 restaurants in over 145 countries and territories.

So, what can we learn from this? Starting a fried chicken business may not be the answer for everyone. However, find your unique reason, purpose, drive and motivation. Identify the competition and the “why” behind your actions because when your “why” becomes clear, everything else falls into place. Everything starts to make sense a clear understanding of why you want to pursue a particular path is set. Once you’ve clarified your “why,” move forward with the “how.” Determine the steps needed to achieve your goal. When your “why” and “how” is aligned, nothing in the universe can stop you.

Find these two key elements and start working on them. In addition, get up, discover your motivation and work diligently. Believe me, it’s never too late to start!
