Unbeatable Mind, as the title entails, is a great book with the main emphasis on growing an ‘unbeatable’ state of mind. This is achieved by tapping into the vast potential that is lying dormant inside of you, allowing you to achieve your fullest expression of yourself. Most people are trapped by their current paradigm, unable to see they are capable of so much more. When you unlock that inner warrior, and thus, live through the fullest expression of yourself, your life will begin to transform. The author – Mark Divine – was a previous Navy Seals commander, which taught him superior leadership skills. These skills were developed through being exposed to extreme situations, and having to not only survive through them but thrive as a result.
Mark passes on his knowledge, by teaching you techniques to increase your mental clarity in order to make better decisions under pressure, increase concentration to keep working on your desired goals until they are complete, and increase personal awareness to build an ‘external and internal radar’. Furthermore, he provides emphasis on the importance of being silent and trusting your intuition, because more often than not, it is right. Lastly, he illustrates that a true leader does not lead through fear, but rather through the heart center.
All of these techniques were learned through years of meditation, visualization, martial arts and positive self-talk, which created an unstoppable warrior spirit that would overcome anything and lead through the service of others.
