1. Your goals are unreasonable.  I don’t want you to end up being disappointed.

And here it is.  The big one.  The number one thought we are brainwashed from birth to have!  This thought is the major reason why we limit ourselves.  It is the major reason why we never reach our full potential.  And it is the reason why we are disappointed in life.

If there is one thought you decide to correct within these top ten, make it this one!  There is no such thing as an unreasonable goal set too high.  That is absolutely ridiculous!  When you set your goals high, you work harder, longer, and with more enthusiasm to reach that goal.

This is the reality: whether you set your goal below your expectations, or set them higher than you could ever imagine, you will probably not reach either goal.  However, when you set your goal as high as you can, you end up accomplishing much more than if you were to set a goal with intentionally lower expectations to avoid disappointment.  If you don’t reach either goal, which goal would you rather fall short of.  The goal that is set near impossible expectations, or the goal that you know you can accomplish.  If I set a goal I knew was possible to accomplish and then did not reach that goal, I would be much more disappointed than if I failed to reach a goal that was set to touch the sky.

We must move away from everything everyone has ever told us about setting goals.  Goals need to be realistic.  Not at all, set them as high as you like and work toward it every day.  You will never know your true potential until you do.  Set a time limit on your goals.  No way.  Your goals should give you such motivation that you wake up every day wanting to achieve them, no matter how long it takes.  And when you reach that goal, set it even higher.  When you work toward something out of reach, it motivates you to work harder than you would normally work for something that you know is achievable.  Don’t be afraid of failure, be afraid of not fulfilling your potential.

When people tell you “I don’t want you to be disappointed” it usually means, “slow down buddy, you are working way too hard for me to keep up with.”  You aren’t living to stay at an even pace as your friend.  You’re living to fulfill your potential.  You will not achieve true success until you do.  Truly successful people stick to their goals, despite what others advise, the opposition they come up against, and the criticism they receive for their commitment to fulfill their potential.  Don’t let others influence what you do in your lifetime.  Live your life for you and your family, and attain the success you deserve!

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.

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…
