Motivation Monday: Desire & Hustle

There have been certain times in my life where I wanted to be good at something but didn’t feel like I had a whole lot of natural talent in that area. I got good grades in school, I’ve been promoted, and I once ran 6 miles. I’m proud of all these accomplishments, and none of them came easy to me.

I remember working my butt off studying for exams when some of my classmates would get “A”s without even opening a book.

At one of my past jobs, I didn’t know what I was doing when I started out. There was a lot of trial and error and some tears, but eventually I figured out exactly what it took to succeed, I did it, and I got promoted.

The 6 mile thing– a LOT of training. It took me years to work up to that.

It starts with desire. If there’s something you truly desire, you can make it happen. Even if it’s something you’ve never done before and you think you’ll be really bad at it. Maybe you will be bad at it or fail at first, but if your desire is strong enough, keep hustling. You’ll learn from mistakes and eventually get it.

Figure out what you truly desire, make a plan, and hustle until you get it!
