Wear may lead to powerful action and superhero-like determination.

“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.”
– Les Brown
The idea of being unstoppable is powerful. It means performing at your highest level, being the best you can be. It speaks to perseverance, follow-through, courage, and strength of heart.
To me, being unstoppable is mostly about working with my own limiting beliefs of not being or having enough (time, smarts, money, skills, etc.). All people have constraints. Unstoppable people find creative ways to move around, over, or through them.
I like to pair over-the-knee boots with tights or skinny jeans. Add a boxy sweater and a statement bag for
a truly unstoppable look. (1. 5050 boots by Stuart Weitzman, 2. Frame Denim Le Luxe Noir Skinny Jean

Lately when I come up against a barrier that in the past may have stopped me, I write down all of the impossibilities I can come up with. Then, on the other side of the paper, I try to come up with at least one way I can circumnavigate. I’ve been shocked at the solutions that present themselves. When “impossible” isn’t an option, I find that possibility reveals itself.
How do you feel about the idea of being unstoppable? What is one perceived barrier standing in the way of your dreams? Can you find a creative solution that knocks it out of the way?
