Hustle • Rest • Repeat

REST

So many injuries come from overuse, and guess what? You can injure your brain too by not taking a break.

That go, go, go mentality is actually hurting your productivity and most likely the quality of work you’re putting out.

Its okay (and I encourage it) to take a break and catch up with yourself, whether its a nap, a run, or maybe a vacation! I’m always a fan of the latter.

Be aware of your body and mind and listen to it. Keep yourself healthy and your work will be too!

Hustle, rest, repeat!

When in Doubt, Run it out

runWe can get so trapped in the mental pressures that we put on ourselves, when all we need is a short break and probably an increased heart rate. I know the feeling of putting exercise aside because “there is just no time”, but that is a load of crap and you and I both know it. Take 20 minutes to get some blood pumping and you’ll be amazed with the results. I especially like to get this over with in the morning and feel its effects throughout the entire day, but a mid-day walk or run is a great way to break up the work day as well. No more mental blocks – don’t waste that time beating yourself up, walk or run it out and fuel your creative juices!

PASSION=PURPOSE

PDM-insta-OPRAHOprah always coming through with the inspiration I need!

Seriously though, money is a great motivator but make sure you are passionate about what you are doing! Just because you are good at something doesn’t mean you should be doing it. Do what you love! Even if it isn’t traditional or a known money maker— that’s even better! Be 100% you and let that guide you where you need to be. This world is full of people just trying to make money, be one the one that is just trying to do what they live every day and make a living from it.

What’s your passion?

WORK HARD; YOU ARE WORTH IT.

“THE FIRST STEP IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS IS TO WAKE UP”

Keep going. Don’t be discouraged because there isn’t instant gratification. You must work hard and then work harder. You have dreams, which is better than most. Keep pressing to further them. You have the time in the day tO work on your passions, carve out at least 30 minutes per day! Perhaps right in the morning while drinking coffee before you start the work that actually makes you money. This way, you can wake up feeling motivated and excited! (and earlier). You’ve got this. You are smart, creative, clever, unique and passionate. YOU ARE ENOUGH. Tackle it head first and do it for yourself. Make yourself proud.
