Growing up I watched my parents and people they associated with. I was influenced by them and I suppose on some levels the things they did and the ways they acted rubbed off.
It became part of who I am.
I also realize that we are not defined by our past and that we have a choice each and every day to be who we choose to be.
And to “hustle” everyday…well…that too is a choice.
A friend and fellow writer Ben Settle (he’s actually a master and a fella I respect and admire) wrote yesterday about he is trying to AVOID the hustle. How he thinks the word may be overused and overrated and on some levels he is right.
And on some he is wrong.
You see while I agree with him and won’t argue his point I believe that the reasons WHY we choose to hustle, and grind and burn the midnight oil is of prime importance.
Usually speaking at this stage of life (I’m 49) it would normally be time to begin thinking about working lessand maybe even retirement.
But my WHY is you.
I hustle for you .
You see when I was 19…or 27…or heck even 34 I was on fire and sleep was secondary.
And truthfully I did dream about the days where I could wake up at the crack of noon, putter around the house then maybe go for a walk. And yep…I did that. For almost a full year. I wrote a book. I mentored some young CEO’s. I had the opportunity to do other things but at the end of the day it’s about the hustle for me.
I need to be ‘IN’ something, building, creating, growing and then doing it again.
My wife and I have been blessed with great businesses and now with the ability to mentor and teach others it is even more apparent that our mentees, students, biz partners, kids now WATCH us! So it is my belief that more than ever hustle is important.
Because now it’s them…watching us.
Much the way it was when I was a kid.
Take this for what it’s worth. At the ened of the day the tribe we have here values the same things. Hustle, drive and motivation and the tribe of others may be one of let’s work hard today to hustle less tomorrow.
Not this homie…
Gotta run now…everyday I’m hustling…have a bitching day!
