Hustling has exploded. The economy has improved, yet hustling is still exploding. Why is that? What’s really going on? Conventional wisdom was always that if people have jobs or the ability to get a job, they wouldn’t hustle. I believe people realize that things have changed. They realize that even if their job is secure right now, that may not be the truth; two, three, four, or five years from now. So, people are hustling because they recognize that they have to.
I have a lot of members of the Hustler Mindset Project who are not poor and who are not interested in storage auctions, but they are really interested in preserving their way of life and also increasing it. Seriously, we’re going to see some fundamental shifts in the way work is performed. The new economy will favor people who like to read, research, learn and learn some more. You’re going to have to be bold and have courage.
You will have to do so many things you aren’t doing now just to stay even in 10 or 15 years. It can be scary. I am excited. I’m extremely, extremely excited about the future. I am blown away by the tools and technology that are coming compared to the things that are already here.
Understand the things that you do related to online commerce are going to get better. I can’t even predict what you will have that will enable you to make money. Right now there is somebody working on some software or technology that will enable you to make more money, if you are in the pool now.
Hustling saved my life. There was a time that if it weren’t for hustling, I would have been really, really poor. I’m talking the “whites of West Virgina” county poor. I’m talking scary poor.
I remember one week where I started off hustling and I only made $150 at the beginning of the week. I kept hustling though and by Friday, I had $1000. I couldn’t do that with a regular job. With a job, it doesn’t matter how hard you work, you will only make what you agreed upon when you took the job. That does not change.
You might get a performance bonus, or if you’re in sales, you might get a Spiff. Only in hustling do you have the ability to increase your income from day to day. The other side of that is you can make absolutely nothing. There are no guarantees.
Guess what? These days, having a job is just as risky as hustling. As I said earlier, there are people who are starting to understand that fact. They’re awake. Their eyes are wide open. They can’t sleep at night because they know what’s coming.
There’s another group who are in denial. They still believe in jobs as the only respectable option. Hustling can still have negative connotations. Hustling saved my life. Hustling is my best friend. Hustling is the reason I am able to talk to you today. There is no negative connotation for me. I’m a hustler. I’m a staunch opportunist. There is no shame in that. This channel was created for me to market my products. I am proud to be a hustler.
I don’t want to have a prestigious job title and chump change salary. That’s what’s going on. People have these titles that sound really good, like you are the Director of Internet Marketing and you make $35K a year. Fancy titles do not pay the bills.
Don’t think that hustling is a bad thing. Jump your ass into the pool. I’m serious. Right now, the water is cold. When the water is warm because of all the bodies in the water, that’s not going to be when you want to get in the pool.
It won’t be a slow march into the pool, there will be a massive number of people jumping in. It is better to be in that pool before everybody else jumps in. Timing is important. You want to beat the herd.
You want to start hustling on some level today. I don’t care if you have a job. I don’t care if you’re fat and happy and just living life, you need to start hustling now.
Let me scare you for a minute. I’ve talked to a lot of people. A lot of people can’t get a raise or they are losing their jobs and can’t find another one to replace their previous income. This is happening for two reasons. The first reason is technology. If your job can be replaced by an algorithm, at some point in time, it will be.
That’s why you need to become a hustler. When you view life as a boss, life becomes totally different. You start seeing the opportunities that come with change and how you can use them, instead of worrying about whether you will have a job tomorrow.
There is a return to consumers wanting quality in the USA. People want quality items. Some manufacturing is coming back to the USA. Why? These other countries are experiencing an improved lifestyle and they are now in the middle class. They are demanding more money now. It is not as cheap as it once was to go to these countries and setup a business.
The ability to call the shots is a benefit of being the boss. So many people working on a job have no power at work. They have few options.
As your own boss, you will be able to control your own future. You will be able to control your destiny and own your destiny. That is why you want to get in the pool.
Here are a few tips to help you avoid the pack and the herd. Number one – you need to get started. If you keep waiting for the perfect time to start, one day there will be no more sand in the hour glass. True hustlers don’t fucking wait. They create the opportunity. You have to become part of the hustling landscape.
Number two – pick something and get started and stay started. Don’t be worried if it doesn’t work out. If it doesn’t work out, you will learn something. My first five businesses were turkeys. I started them when I had a job. I was in the military for most of them. That’s why I am telling you to get started now, while you have a job.
I know so many people who were hustling on the side and then they lost their job and they went to full-time hustling. Most hustlers exceed their job income as soon as they go full-time and put in the effort. It makes sense to have something to transition to.
When you get started and your back is against the wall, it’s a scary, scary proposition. Start now. Failure is not a bad thing. It is just part of life.
You have failed since birth. Think about how you learned to walk. You went from crawling to walking to running. You went for months until you got good at it.
As long as you have forward progression, you will get where you want to go. If you have 20 things you want to do, pick three and start them all. One will emerge as the clear winner.
