We are all striving to be our best selves. We’re our own biggest critics and we place a lot of pressure on ourselves to hustle hard, not fall short and be good enough because we care so much about what we do.
Life gets busy and there are so many things that we are trying to accomplish at once – it’s easy to find yourself having a mental breakdown and anxiety attacks if you don’t focus and learn to hustle from a place of peace instead of urgency. It’s possible that, while in your juggling act, you’re looking for a healthy balance to keep you sane and in control as you hustle along.
It’s very important to have a system in place that keeps you centered and productive and that will give you a clear mindset throughout your days. It’s a flow and each of us have a rhythm that inspires us to remember why we started in the first place and why we work as hard as we do.
What inspired you to hustle in the first place?
There are moments that we feel in a rut and we start questioning all of our life decisions. Don’t forget why you started. What inspired you to begin with? When you find yourself less than motivated and confused about what to do, have a pep talk with yourself. Write it all down. It’s possible that the way you do things has evolved, so pour out your heart during your pep talk and remember the reason for all your hard work along the way.
A piece of the pie.
We tend to compare our success to the success of others. This creates hostility between us, and if you think about it, there’s absolutely no need for it, right? There is a piece of the pie for everyone and we need to just focus on our slice.
Be true to yourself and focus on your own hustle and happiness. Remove yourself from places and environments that don’t produce positivity and don’t lift you up. Comparison will just take away from your time and creativity. So give yourself a break and sing your own praises.
Divide and conquer.
What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? Think about these questions as you strategize on how to be more efficient in your business. When you focus on where you can best serve your work will be done with more intention. Write down what you can and enjoy doing and also write down the things you find no pleasure in. For the things you don’t like to do, if possible, outsource. Do what you can in order to hustle with the right intentions and avoid running in circles and feeling frustrated.
Believe in the hustle. Trust the process.
Visualize your best life. Go ahead, do it… To have what you want, you must first see yourself as already having it. You are capable of manifesting success and happiness. As you visualize, don’t hold back. Write it all down as if you were writing about something that has already happened.
“At the end of the day, finding a healthy hustle is all about trusting that you have time to accomplish what you want. You are worthy. You are enough.”
