I’ve been learning that if any of us are going to do the things we want, we must hustle. And this hustle happens in two ways:
1) We must outwork those near us. This can come in a huge number of ways but if we want to get to where we want to get to then we must go after it as if our lives depend on it. Because honestly, our lives do depend on fulfilling our unique calling. We will be more happy. More creative. And just overall better people if we’re doing what we are made to do. So live and breathe what you desire. Find out how to make a living doing what you love. And go all in with it. Give your life to it.
2) We must work smarter than those around us. This comes in a number of ways too but mostly, do the things only you can do. Don’t focus so much on the things you can have others do. And yes, I bet you are saying that delegation comes when you have already succeeded a little on your dream. But I wish to tell you that you must surround yourself with people who are better at certain things than you are and get them to either 1) do it for you or 2) teach you how to do it.
As we hustle, we will see ourselves make great strides toward our dreams and calling and then we will start to see the greater things that Jesus talked about in John 14:12.
So let’s hustle today.
