How to be a hustler & Stop Doing What is Easy

How to Stop Doing What is Easy

Over the years, I always wanted the moment to come where things weren’t as hard and I didn’t have as many problems. I wanted to reach my full “happiness” like everybody else does. Now I have realized, I was looking at life the wrong way. I changed my perspective and now I understand that happiness isn’t just one moment in the future and life doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger.

I also realized I have greatness in me as does every other individual on this planet. It is how you choose to use your greatness that will yield the best results.

To create a new life for yourself requires patience, persistence and being resilient. It’s never going to be easier. Achievements and failures go hand in hand. But it’s not all bad, because I truly believe the life that is waiting for us is exciting as well as the moment we have now. Being fearless is actually exhilarating. Believing in yourself is part of self-compassion and knowing you are worth so much more is exciting. You cannot help others until you help yourself and you cannot love others until you love yourself. Keep doing things everyday, small or big, to achieve in becoming a better version of yourself. You are an amazing person now, and can become even more astonishing each day you keep trying and you keep hustling your way into your dreams and goals. Don’t forget, we are all waiting on you!

As a finance major graduate, my mind tends to see my process as an investment process. Such as, when you initially invest in a company and have to make improvements on it in order to yield higher returns, you can get caught up wanting for the end results to happen. It is easy to start being impatient, but you have to wait it out. In the process you can’t get discouraged when things don’t go the right way. The end results are waiting for you as long as you do something each day to get one step closer. Michael Phelps didn’t have an overnight win. It was with the help of small wins everyday that got him where he is today. He pushed through his comfort zone, had the mind over matter attitude and celebrated his small wins. It is crucial that each time you have a small win that you celebrate that win. This trains your brain into thinking it is doing something good, and that it wants you to do it again. And small accomplishments over time yield bigger results.

If you cannot grow each day, you cannot become your best self that is possible for you. If you cannot be your best self, then you are belittling yourself of what is possible for you. You still have time. Never give up on yourself and your future. Don’t ever settle for a basic life. I truly believe we were born into this life with a purpose and we were born to succeed. Take inventory of yourself every day, write it down — what can you do differently? Find time to better yourself every day. I want you to leave this earth with a positive impact. I want you to know that because you were born, we are all blessed with your gifts.

I challenge all of you to keep fighting to find your purpose on this planet. Something that is challenging, stimulating, fulfilling and inspiring. I also challenge you to figure out your why. This will help you figure out your purpose. Your why should have your passion embedded in it. Your why should make you want it so bad that you HAVE to have it. It should make you emotional because if you don’t have or do this one thing, then you will forever feel incomplete.

This life truly is so beautiful and one of the best advice’s I have ever gotten is that we owe it to the other 95% who are less unfortunate than us living in the U.S. to become massively successful in order to be in power to help.

Now go take that walk like the champion I know you are. All things are possible and you are so loved.

 

As always, tweet or reach out on Instagram if you have taken your small step in finding out your why or purpose.

Thanks for reading and see you next time!

Stop Doing What is Easy And Take Control Of Your Life

Over the years, I always wanted the moment to come where things weren’t as hard and I didn’t have as many problems.

I wanted to reach my full “happiness” like everybody else does.

Now I have realized, I was looking at life the wrong way.

I changed my perspective and now I understand that happiness isn’t just one moment in the future and life doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger.

I also realized I have greatness in me as does every other individual on this planet. It is how you choose to use your greatness that will yield the best results.

To create a new life for yourself requires patience, persistence and being resilient.

It’s never going to be easier.

Achievements and failures go hand in hand. Failing is just part of the process; a process that I think can be quite appreciated. One day you will look back and appreciate it so much more for the lessons it has taught you and the person it has allowed you to be.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.” – Steve Jobs

But it’s not all bad because I truly believe the life that is waiting for us is just as exciting as well as the moment we have now. This is why they say to enjoy the process because the process is what makes up your life. The process is what becomes your life. Follow that heart of yours and never give up because of a little bump along the road.

Being fearless is actually exhilarating. Believing in yourself is part of self-compassion and knowing you are worth so much more is exciting.

As a finance graduate, my mind tends to see my process as an investment process.

Such as, when you initially invest in a company and have to make improvements on it in order to yield higher returns, but you can get caught up wanting for the end results to happen. It is easy to start being impatient, but you have to wait it out. In the process, you can’t get discouraged when things don’t go the right way.

Small wins….

The end results are waiting for you as long as you do something each day to get one step closer. Michael Phelps didn’t have an overnight win. It was with the help of small wins everyday that got him where he is today. He pushed through his comfort zone, had the mind over matter attitude and celebrated his small wins.

It is crucial that each time you have a small win that you celebrate that win. This trains your brain into thinking it is doing something good, and that it wants you to do it again. And small accomplishments over time yield bigger results.

You are an amazing person now, and can become even more astonishing each day you keep trying and you keep hustling your way into your dreams and goals.

Don’t forget, we are all waiting on you!

Grow each day….

If you cannot grow each day, you cannot become your best self that is possible for you. If you cannot be your best self, then you are belittling yourself of what is possible for you. You still have time. Never give up on yourself and your future. Don’t ever settle for a basic life. I truly believe we were born into this life with a purpose and we were born to succeed. Take inventory of yourself every day, write it down — what can you do differently? Find time to better yourself every day. I want you to leave this earth with a positive impact.

Life is too short

How to Take Action for Success

One of the best ways to start your day, or to start off your week in a good note is to listen to some of the best motivational speeches from the most inspiring, successful speakers.

I have incorporated these into my daily routine for many years now and I truly believe it has trained my brain into always pushing myself out of my comfort zone, to always go after what I believe in/ want, to never make excuses for my own actions and to never blame my circumstances for my misfortunes.

I think we all need daily reminders to take chances, that it is okay to make mistakes and to always get back up when things have not gone the way you want them to be. It is discouraging to not be where you want to be, but never stay at that state of mind, always keep moving forward and most importantly ENJOY the process. Nobody can guarantee your success or your path, only you have the power.

Success can have so many different meanings for so many different people. I think that’s the beauty of it – we all have different things to offer to this world. Don’t worry about the competition or what others are doing – you and the person next to you didn’t come on this earth to accomplish the same things. You have a different gift than the person next to you.

You are truly a miracle and have so much to offer. If that doesn’t encourage you, then think of it scientifically; your DNA is the most unique out of billions out there! You are extraordinary and are meant to be here. You have something to give back to this world, and if you don’t take action today, then who knows what we all miss out on and could have gotten from your gifts. Your potential is so much greater than you think. What’s the prize? I think human beings are naturally driven and meant for success. We are not meant to lay around and do nothing, we are meant to take action and create opportunities.

Your future self is counting on you and I am rooting for you!

Some of my favorite speakers are Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Zig Ziglar, Wayne Dyer and Tony Robbins.

If you haven’t watched Tony Robbins’ movie “I am Not Your Guru” on Netflix, I would highly suggest that you consider it. It is amazing and puts into perspective of how so many people struggle with so many different things and that you should always be grateful. Warning: keep tissues handy.

10 Quotes to Guide Your Life

10 Quotes to Guide Your Life

Quotes have the power to change your perspective, visualize a goal and to lead your life to live it the best possible way.

They have gotten me through a lot of good days and bad days and I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes that could potentially help guide and shape your life.

The older I get, the more I understand the most cliché’ d quotes and the people who have spoken those words were really just trying to shed some light into our lives. I enjoy reading quotes because in some sense it can help change your outlook of the moment, open your eyes, and help you take action.

  1. “What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.” – Ralph Marston

Most of us live for tomorrow or waiting for that one specific moment to start something. It’s so important to make the jump today – the most important day in your life. Today is the most crucial time to start to live and do what matters most to you. I think we all forget the powerful effects of small wins, which we can incorporate into our daily lives.

  1. “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” – Earl Nightingale

You can either spend your time accomplishing the things you have always dreamed of, or you can let the time pass not doing anything and feeling stuck. The choice is always yours. A life spent as a passenger rather than a contributor to help the world, is a life not fully lived.

  1. “Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy.” – Ralph Marston

This is a good reminder to stop waiting for that one specifying moment to feel “happy”. You’ll never get there if you keep waiting for that moment because it’s not coming. Rather, happiness is how you choose to perceive things, how compassionate you are, and it’s always living each moment as they come.

  1. “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

In this day and age, we see so many people doing great things and some are becoming millionaires or billionaires at such a young age, but it’s important to realize that is not how you can measure your worth. You are worth so much more than your success. Your beautiful heart and mind are amazing and you never know how much someone needs and appreciates you.

  1. “The moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens. Don’t give up!”

This one is a tough one. We all have been there when quitting is so much easier than going through with what’s difficult. But if you repeatedly do what is easy, I think your life will become hard.

  1. “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” – Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs was a lucky man living out his dream job on this earth. He left this earth with an impact because he followed his passion. If that’s not inspiring to go out and figure out what you are meant to do on this earth then I don’t know what is.

  1. “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” – Theodor Seuss Geisel

It’s important to remind yourself of this daily to appreciate the people around you. Those people won’t always be around and someday you won’t either. This quote is over-said, but I think not over-done. Many of us forget to appreciate each moment as they are and to be in the moment every day. Technology makes it harder for our generation, but it’s not impossible. It is quite simple to be there for someone, be mindful of their feelings and cherish every moment of it.

  1. “There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.”

It’s good to have a self-care routine, because let’s be honest, we can’t go back to our parents past a certain age to take care of us. Not even our partners, or loved ones can help us, you need to improve yourself on your own. It’s crucial to do so because you can’t help others before you help yourself. And if you can’t give back, then we are all living poorly because we are missing out on what you could have given back to this world.

  1. “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” – Dr. Seuss

A lot of times, we tend to overthink things and over-analyze questions rather than think through the answers one small step at a time. You don’t need to worry and over-analyze a situation, just take it as what it is and look at the big picture. It doesn’t need to be solved today and is crucial to be resolved over time. So, stop worrying and start looking for the simple answers.

  1. “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Going back to the first quote, yes sometimes the most important day is today, but sometimes, some days suck. Some days are awful and you don’t know how to deal. It’s important to know they don’t last forever and tomorrow is always a brand-new day. Sometimes, you have done all you can do for that one day and just need to shut your eyes, sleep and wait for your second most important day – tomorrow.

If you are feeling to get more inspired, here’s a clip of Steve Jobs’ speech at Standford commencement.

As always, thank you for reading!
