I’ve Got To Hustle!

Are you the type of person to say I can’t afford it or are you the type to figure out how to get it?

These are the words I said to myself as I begin to look at the number $1340. That’s the subtotal amount for the numerous hoodies I want from a clothing site. As I recognized I didn’t have it, my mind began to turn on how to get it. I have too many wants to not be hustling smarter and harder. I’ll be honest though, I’m not sure exactly what my hustle should be at this point. The obvious choice is monetizing this site and my 2 podcast, but that has also become quite a challenge. Both of them could earn me way more than $1340 a month, but getting there is literally half the battle. If I can make $1 dollar off my platforms, $100 or $1,000 plus will be easy. That first dollar though. It’s been hard to come by.

So I’m on a quest to truly hustle up. I’m going to get those nice and expensive things I want as well as my desired necessities. It’s time to add real hustle to the work and reap the benefits in all ways possible.

A Chasing Revelation While Brushing My Teeth

I think it’s time I stop chasing money. I say that because of my fear of once again being in insurmountable debt. I had an expense that I couldn’t pay cash for and well, now I’m a little more anxious than I was in say June of 2019. I had to charge that expense. Two things popped in my mind when I did this.

1. I am not buying a car anytime soon. I’ll lease or walk.
2. I need to find a way to get this money ASAP!!!

As I get prepared for the day today, a Jadakiss lyric popped in my mind.

Soon as you start chasing the money, that’s when the money start running
-Jadakiss

To be real, money has been running my whole life. It’s been running my conversations, my aspirations, my fantasies even my career. Now it’s running my family and my mind. I have to stop that today. I realized my purpose and that gave me the peace I needed. Now, I got to make sure that my purpose runs my life everyday and not money.

I live in America. A Capitalist country that runs on the Almighty Dollar. Even with that fact, I can’t let the dollar run me. My purpose is to be a resource and I can be that no matter what is in my wallet.
