You Can't Knock the Hustle

The other week I had someone tell me to give up. They told me that I was incapable of "hustling."

To say I was shocked is an understatement.

I have always hustled my entire life. I have always been the girl with a plan. I have always found a way to make something work and to make money. There have been plenty of times in my life that I have hustled my ass off beyond belief.

Right now I'm tired of hustling. I've hustled my entire life. I have consistently worked my ass off since I started school at age 5. I have pushed aside other things and have had a focus that is like a laser. When I have a goal I will do whatever it takes to achieve it. For this person to say this crumbled me. This is someone who has known me for a long time and it just blew me away that this person saw me as lazy and completely unable to work hard.

I am glad this person said what they said because it is pushing me. I now know that I am succeeding no matter what. That I am going to build this and I am going to make money just so I can throw it in their face.

That's a good reason to succeed, right?

You know what, it doesn't matter how long someone has known you. To make a comment like that means they don't know you at all. Jealous people are a special kind of stupid because they lack the filter that tells them, "Hey, saying something like that could get you punched in the scrotum, rethink it."

You just keep doing what you're doing. If that person says something again, smile and say, "Aw, how sweet, you think I actually listen to you." Pat them on the head and walk away.
