I remember coming home from a particularly tough day at the office and sitting down to work even more on my dream. I stared at the screen trying to force something out, but I had nothing left.
This is how you build dreams though right? You work when you’re spent. You create when you’re out of energy. You HUSTLE 24 − 7.
Despite dedicating over an hour or more to my dream, I accomplished next to nothing that night. I scanned my Twitter feed, I checked my email again, hoping for something easy to accomplish.
“Why can’t I focus? Does this mean I’m not cut out to build Life Stoked? Do I not want it badly enough?”
Deep down I knew I had what it takes to crush my life goals, but I couldn’t understand why I was failing in that moment. Working on Life Stoked was supposed to be the work I’m most excited about, yet here I sit – flat.
What the world tells you about HUSTLE
The world will tell you you’ve got to be on all the time. It tells you if you’re not hustling day and night, then you just don’t want it badly enough. You just don’t have what it takes.
The world’s wisdom leads to two outcomes:
1) Burning out.
2) Giving up.
If you’ve experienced either of these while building your dream, it’s not your fault (and I can prove it)!
