It’s not simply enough to hustle. Some of us do it for the money, some of us enjoy the creativity, but knowing WHY is important.
Sit down, and think about your goals. Write them down. I bet it looks something like this:
If you didn’t write ‘more money’ as your first goal,comment on this post and tell us your goal!!
Having money is an enabler; it creates lifestyle, opens doors to bigger and better hustles, and reduces your risk.
Your goal should not simply be to have more money – your goal should state HOW MUCH and WHAT FOR. For example; “raise $2000 to build xyz” – your goals must have a purpose!
Gary Vaynerchuck’s famous goal is simple – to raise enough money to buy the New York Jets. This one goal drives him to find numerous ways to make money quickly from everyday activities; truly hustling. Having a goal that drives you, that you are truly passionate about, is more important than the HOW.
It’s unlikely that you will achieve your number one goal with one, two or even three hustles. You and I, regular folk, work a day to day job, enterprising out of hours to hustle together a few extra dollars. Think about how many ‘hustles’ you’ve created – I personally have created or been involved in at least 10 side projects over the past 10 years – and that’s not enough.
When you’re in tune with what you’re trying to achieve, why you hustle, and what you want from your life, you’ll be ahead of the pack. Know your why and you have the most important motivation to achieve it. I don’t believe it is enough to say “I do this to raise $1m to buy a house”; because this raises another question; why do you want that house? What does having that house give back to your life and propel you forward? Always keep asking yourself, WHY? WHY? WHY?
