hustle (verb) hus·tle \ˈhə-səl\
The innate hunger to build, create, do something & try.
The ability to make things happen in light of knowing how to get there, but operate with the general principle that actions breed results.
Hustle comes from a sense of purpose. It’s listening to where your thoughts go when you drift away from reality, and then doing something about it. It’s the moment your eyes light up when discussing it; you stand a little taller, and move a little bit closer to a better version of yourself.
Hustle means ownership. Over your life, your goals, your body, your mind. It’s taking responsibility for all the decisions you make during the day. It’s owning your strengths along with your flaws and being accountable for your own success.
Hustle means always searching for more. It’s a hunger for a better version of yourself. It’s evolving through experience and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone in order to grow. It’s seeking a deeper why in life and being adaptable to change.
Hustle means knowing your worth. It’s not just how much you value your time, but how you aim to invest it. Hustle doesn’t always have to equal a paycheck. Whether you want to invest your time in cultivating your passions or a new business venture, your time is your biggest value: Where you invest it matters.
Hustle means failure. And success. And failure. Lather, rinse, repeat. Hustle isn’t for the faint of heart. Hustle is heart. Hustle is the ability to learn from every situation, no matter the outcome. It’s the mental strength that’s required to get up, dust it off, and try again. Because to be great at anything, you gotta expect to be pretty bad at it first.
Hustle means achieving what others cannot. It’s the commitment to say ‘no’ to the infinite distractions that will always be there. It’s not taking the road less traveled, it’s paving your own.
Hustle means accepting criticism. and letting that shit roll off. Some people will hate you because they see you enjoying the success they don’t have from the work they haven’t done. Pay attention to the people who don’t cheer when you win.
