No matter how many odds are against you, nothing compares to the power inside. Remember “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” I’m not sure who said it first but I remember this famous line from the 2005 movie, “HUSTLE & FLOW.” Hustle & Flow features amazing characters, hilarious punchlines and most of all, powerful words of wisdom.
Let’s face it, it’s hard out here for a pimp, no pun intended. It’s hard to believe in yourself when all you have is less than a dollar and dream. But as DJay would say, “Push that sh*t out shug!”
Just push it out, you have to see something inside of your soul that is way beyond your potential. Something that is waiting to burst out. Hustle & Heart WILL set you apart.
It’s a must that you go the extra mile for dreams. You gotta hustle. Break every box that others put you in. Go hard, and TAKE WHAT YOU DESERVE. Whether it’s respect, power, money or your dream career if you hustle, you’ll put yourself on. Point, blank, period.
Hustling starts with setting an overall goal, after you set a goal you’ll need an execution strategy. Put the key in and ride out. You’re in charge. You’ll get frustrated, and beat down but you have to see it forward. Grab the hustle by the wheel and drive to your passion, that’s where the heart comes into play.
When you’re hustling, your HEART must be in it. Your hustle must be executed with the deepest devotion to your grind. For example:
- Waking up a little earlier than others
- Overworking your peers
- Doing whatever it takes
- Staying up a little later to perfect
- Consistently working towards your goals
Going the extra mile will set you apart, because not very many people are willing to consistently apply themselves to their dreams. It won’t be easy but the adrenaline pumping from your heart and that mean a** hustle rattling your soul will get you to your destination. Everybody’s gotta have a dream, go get yours.
