Be A Young Hustler, Go Out There And Take Action

It’s a little after 4:30 am and I am up ready kick off my day and ACT.  I woke up, read my personal mission statement and enjoying a quiet breakfast.  It’s a good morning.  Something good is going to happen today, I can feel it…

I’m sure you guys are familiar with many of the following phrases:

“There aren’t enough hours in the day”

“So much to do, so little time”

“I just don’t have enough time”

And there are many more.  I’m sure a lot of you have used these very same phrases. I know I have.   But the GREAT news is that you can stop using these kinds of phrases because they are just excuses.  

The word “excuse” is a noun meaning “a reason or explanation put forward to defend or justify a fault or offense” or as a verb, “release someone (in this case, meaning yourself) from a duty or requirement.  

There is absolutely NO reason to defendfault.  That is what lazy people do.  If you wish to succeed, you act on your fault.  Act so much that you in turn change your fault so there is no longer any existence of a fault.  That’s right, action literally makes your faults disappear. 

What would you do if you had no faults? Impossible? Nah. You just aren’t taking enough action!  In his book, The TenX Rule, Grant Cardone (@GrantCardone) powerfully states, “Any person who uses blame as the reason why something happened or did not happen will not accumulate real success in their life, and only will further his or her status as a slave on planet earth.”

That’s heavy stuff..read that quote a couple times and really let it sink in.  There are two simple choices you have in life: to act or to make an excuse.  They both take the same amount of energy to do.  They both affect your life, family, friends, etc.  They both define your level of success.  They both define you as a person.

So which will you choose?  I hope you will join the movement to be a Young Hustler and get out there and ACT.  Success is waiting for you at the finish line; you get there by taking action that “everybody else” refuses to do, and by putting in more time, more heart, more everything than anyone else, and you have a golden path to the finish line.

Change your mindset and habits now.  Make the conscious decision as Grant Cardone encourages, “to make success your duty, obligation, and responsibility.”  Success is no longer an option, it is now your ethical responsibility. SO GET UP AND ACT, THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU!

Fear is the product of a person’s mind, completely imaginative. The degree to which a person lets fear control the decisions one makes, determines those who are successful, and those who wait their entire lives for the fear to “go away.” Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway! Action, Action, Action!!

Mike is happy.

A rapper blog?

A baby con artist blog?

A pool shark blog?

Nah.

Define: Young Hustler (noun) – a term coined by Grant Cardone (@GrantCardone) and Jarrod Glandt (@JarrodGlandt) of the radio show Young Hustlers, which can be found by subscribing to Grant Cardone on YouTube.  A Young Hustler is a person from the generation known as the Millenials, or Gen Y, who goes to extreme lengths to pursue their goals.  These individuals are willing to do whatever it takes to make something of themselves.

Young Hustlers don’t sit back and wait for opportunity; they go out and create opportunity for themselves by taking action every day.  Despite many stereotypes attributed to this generation (laziness, no communication skills, unambitious, etc.), a Young Hustler goes against opposition and goes against the norm and group think to gain a level of achievement that satisfies.  A level of achievement that satisfies.  You should no there isn’t this kind of level is a Young Hustler’s mindset.   Satisfies equals average. Young Hustlers want more, and when they get it, they go out and want some more.

These individuals defy the stereotypes of their generation and achieve success far greater than any average person ever imagined.  I am a Young Hustler.  I know what I want, and I won’t stop until I have it.  And when I have it, I’ll be looking for more.

Follow my blog to follow my story, and see how possible it is to be a Young Hustler and achieve the unimaginable.

 

I just got done with an interesting conversation with my professor..He is a lawyer and I went to ask him for some legal advice and we continued conversation from there.  He asked me the usual stuff, what do I want to do after I graduate, what are the plans for the rest of my life, etc.  Nothing too interesting until he asked one question: Do you have a backup plan?

The following is the real play-by-play of my response to his question:

I froze.

I felt a little confused.

Then I started laughing.

I couldn’t help, but laughing.  As he looked at me like I was nuts I decided maybe I should answer his question.

“Hell no!  I’m burning all bridges.  The bar is the ONLY plan for me.”

I guess my answer was not exactly what he was expecting, evident of the confusion still on his face.  He continued to ask, “What about going for your Master’s?”

“And what? Go more into debt than I already am when I know what I’m going to do?”

He froze for a minute.  I waited for his response.  “But if you continue to go to school…”

He continued to get me to consider continuing my education after graduation, and even though he is a lawyer, and a good one, there is no argument to my case:

You can’t hide out in school for all of your life.  1. How much will schooling do if you don’t have the ambition and the courage to go get a job? 2. What can I learn in my classes at the university that I can’t learn from an audio program or somewhere on the internet?  And my last reasoning, which I think is most compelling of all, 3. Given my first and my second point, why rack up all that debt?  Even if you do get a fabulous job after you graduate with your third master’s and a law degree, you will be working the rest of your life to pay off that debt.  It may be just me, but I don’t like the way that sounds at all!

I don’t want to sound completely one-sided.  There is an upside to higher education.  1. You learn who you really are when you get away from high school and mature when you go to college.  2. You learn to be well-rounded; every discipline is interconnected.  Knowing and understanding this helps in problem solving and even creativity.  I think college is necessary for professionals such as doctors, surgeons, psychologists, lawyers, etc., but myself, as a growing entrepreneur, college is not the place for me.  I am ready to get out into the world and do, and learn from people I meet.

One key component: just because I don’t want to continue onto higher education, does not mean I will ever stop learning.  I love to learn and I am constantly reading interesting articles and books.  I watch videos on YouTube that will further my knowledge on many topics that pertain to me and what I want to do.  The key is: Never Stop Learning. When you stop learning, you stop living.

To summarize:

1. Know what you want to do and pursue it like there are no other options for you

2. Do whatever it takes to make it happen

3. College has its benefits, but it also has some pretty heavy cons

4. NEVER STOP LEARNING

Countdown To Success

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” ~Napoleon Hill

I am a 21 year old female hustler, ready for action.  But what action?

I have many goals in my life, some short-term, some long, some easily attainable, other nearly impossible.

To understand my success story, you must first understand my goals.  Many of these goals will change depending on what is going on in my life.  But I can guarantee that I will NEVER, I repeat, NEVER(!) lessen the attainment of my goals.

I set 10X goals.  What are 10X goals? Self-made man Grant Cardone (@GrantCardone) has written many books vital to success. Because of Grant Cardone’s book, The TenX Rule, I became motivated to do something with my life and set far-reaching goals for myself.  The major principle behind The TenX Rule (you can expect a post reviewing this amazing book shortly!) is to change your mindset and your level of action so that you operate on a 10X level.  A 10X level includes taking 10X the action than you think is necessary to accomplish something and having expectations that are 10X the ones you think you need to complete a task.  Grant Cardone stresses, you will never reach your full potential if you limit your mindset and actions; the greatest you will ever achieve is average.  

I plan to post a separate post outlining all my current goals, but this blog is about one goal in particular.  This is where the countdown begins. Where the high expectations begin.  Where the massive amount of action in pursuit of my goal begins:

1,825 days, 11 hours, 1 minute, 59 seconds

This is my countdown for achieving my ultimate goal: I own and operate a profitable drinking establishment with my dad before I turn 26 years old. 

This is it.  This is where all of my energy will be poured into over the next 4-5 years.  I will pay off my college debt before starting my own business and have capital saved up to reinvest in myself and my dad to make this business a reality.  I have been dreaming about this for a long time now and I am finally ready to hustle nonstop until this dream comes true.

“Impossible,” “Too high of expectations,” you say? I refuse to hear, see, or deal with any negativity.  Do not tell me that my goals are out of reach, instead of acknowledging this comment, I plan to show you that the only limits one has are those that one places on oneself. It may not be easy, but I don’t see the value of living for anything that is easy to accomplish.  Follow my blog, and in the next 4-5 years, come to my bar and have a drink on me! I’m guaranteeing this right now: I will personally invite anyone who follows my blog for a drink on me at my bar the day it opens.     

According to Forbes, 1 percent of the American population, and .01 percent of the entire nation, control 43 percent of the nation’s wealth.  Additionally, the next 4% controls another 29 percent.  This 1 percent has incomes roughly 540 TIMES THE NATIONAL AVERAGE! This disparity in America between the rich and the poor is only increasing.  In these times, one has only two options: to hustle their way to that 1 percent, or to commit a form of suicide by accepting themselves as average.

In this blog, I plan to provide a first-hand account of how I make it to that 1 percent.  Many resources exist to tell you how to achieve success.  TELL.  I plan to provide you with an application of the action, setbacks, sacrifices, and accomplishments among other things of my daily life on my road to success. 

I promise to preserve the integrity and honesty of my successes, and especially my failures and obstacles I run into along the way.  My hope is to inspire others to stop accepting average, and start actually living, by making the conscious decision to fulfill their innermost dreams and achieve their most intimidating goals.

So who is this young hustler? My name is Laura.  I plan to graduate in December of 2015 from Misericordia University in Dallas, Pennsylvania with a B.S. in sport management.  My graduation, however, is just a microscopic stepping stone in the grand scheme of what I will achieve in my lifetime. 

So this is some chick who has some big dreams? So what? 

I am not only some chick with big dreams; I am the chick who is setting a strict deadline on her big dreams and determined to make them a reality.  I am the chick who is willing to expose herself in the conquest of achieving her goals on an insane timeline.  I am the chick willing to expose myself to the potential humility of failing and broadcasting it to the world. 

Why? Because I know failure is not an option and if you follow my blog, I will show you how success can be achieved if you are a dedicated hustler

THIS, is a story of a FEMALE HUSTLER, and how she became successful and achieved all of her dreams and desires…
