Don’t hustle yourself into an early grave. Work hard, but rest harder. Take time to laugh with friends and family. Express gratitude for the things you have in this moment while you work to achieve more.
We live in a generation that romanticizes hustle, and moving forward as quickly as possible when it comes to careers and our success within them. But there is no point in rushing quickly towards a life that will not inspire you or fulfill you. It is okay to slow down. It is okay to take the time you need. You are in no rush to figure out your own soul.
It’s never too late to start over, it’s never too late to change your mind, it’s never too late to give up on the dreams you thought you wanted for ones that genuinely excite and challenge you. It’s never too late. It’s okay to take your time.
Figure out what you want to do with your life and just do it. Dedicate a separate journal for yourself to write down all of your goals and detailed steps towards achieving them. Stopping sitting around and half arsing your way through things because you can’t seem to find any direction, because seriously life is what you make it and sometimes you need to get up and force yourself to do the things that will benefit your future.
Things like “I’m Still Young” or “I’m Too Old” are out of the question & out of fashion as well, no matter how old you are, what you study or where you study, use the time you have right now to hustle, level up your skills. I mean real hustle. Because you don’t want to look back and say you should’ve worked harder, trained harder, tried harder, thought harder, fought harder. Don’t give yourself a reason to have regrets later on in life.
I hate it when someone tries to market themself as an “ENTREPRENEUR” & then blame on something/someone else why their product didn’t take off. Entrepreneurs take the blame, they never blame others. This is the point where I get pissed & that’s one more reason I have stopped attending start-up incubation rounds. I never put good money in bad money.
You need strong moral & competitive mindset to do business. Only a true businessman knows “Money grows in mind, not in a bank account. First you must prove you got skills to achieve.”
Making money is an art. Working hard towards it is also an art. Both can be fun. You know your pick!!
But planting a right business to make something happen is DIVINE. It’s like raising your first child, teaching him/her walk first step towards a new and amazing chapter of life. Something beyond HUSTLE, you will not understand it till you are in it.
