How do we go from our dream to making it a success? HUSTLE! Be energetic and go after what you want, every day!
Everyone has dreams here and there but that doesn’t mean they will be achieved. Dreaming can be done anytime, and it is good, it motivates you, gives you things to live for, to push for. But dreaming won’t get you anywhere by itself.
You have to want it. You have to want it so bad that you are willing to take risks, put effort and hustle into it, whatever you can to make sure you do as good of a job as you can.
The dream is free. The hustle is sold separately.George “GK” Koufalis
We cannot expect to just be given everything, we have to hustle and work for it!
What does HUSTLE mean?
Hustle from dictionary can mean “force (someone) to move hurriedly or unceremoniously in a specified direction.” OR “obtain by forceful action or persuasion.”
But for the context here and related to this quote it’s about being energetic and going after what you want.
From a business point of view, I like below from The Real Meaning of the Word “Hustle”
“Work Hard, Smart and with a Sense of Urgency
The word hustle means that you work hard. It means that you work hard every single day. It means you do the things other people won’t do, and you do them with a sense of joy and purpose because you love it. It means working smarter. It doesn’t mean looking to hack and find shortcuts because you don’t want to do the hard stuff. You work hard and you work smart.”
Buy the book “The dream is Free, But the HUSTLE is sold separately” on Amazon.
