I admire life/psychology/behavior hackers. They’re ever-testing, always-growing and often are happy to prolifically share their findings. I’m all for optimizing life, so I often find myself reading posts from notable writers and experimenters like Benjamin hardy. In his recent Thrive Global post, Benjamin draws you in with a headline you just can’t help but click (30 Behaviors That Will Make You Unstoppable), and psychological analysis so convincing, you just might believe that you too, can become irrepressible. 

As he states, a select few are “unstoppable” are in their own world. 

It is compelling though, isn’t it? Just a few tweaks to your thinking and over time, your behavior will follow. “Owning” your life, and bucking mediocrity is a calling that many discuss, but few achieve. 

For a quick checklist on what these imitable behaviors are, I’ll curate Benjamin’s 30 traits below. For the full guide, complete with pithy quotes and real life examples, read his article at Thrive Global or on his website
