One of my life motto words is HUSTLE. No, not like the 70s dance. The work-hard-play-hard-follow-your-dreams-fight-for-what-you-want kind of hustle. Being a small business owner and independent freelancer is tough. You don’t always have a consistent paycheck and you need to work your butt off if you are going to get anywhere at all. So I tell myself I gotta hustle. Gotta hustle to make them dolla dolla bills, y’all.
Even if you aren’t a small biz owner like me, you can still find places in your life to hustle and make the most of your life. Have a dream or passion that you’ve never gotten around to pursuing? Hustle. Want to finally achieve those new year’s resolutions? Hustle. Want to be the best mom/dad/friend/sister/brother/grandma/grandpa/aunt/uncle/person in general that you can be? Hustle. It takes a little bit of grit, a lot of dedication and perseverance, but if you want something badly, you’ve gotta fight for it. So get out there and hustle, friends. You’ll be glad you did.
To remind yourself to get it get it, I’ve made up a free printable that you can just print and frame for an awesome (and stylish, if I do say so myself) reminder to do your best and work hard.
How do you hustle?
