It’s a beautiful aspect of life that keeps our calendar jam packed by the minute.
Everybody is on some type of grind.
Some of us are in school and work. Others are at two jobs working 50 hours a week. There’s some people out there that have a couple kids and two jobs.
Whatever type of grind you’re on, there’s an important factor to remember about it.
Embrace the grind. You should enjoy what your grind includes.
Your grind should be an inspiration in your life.
If you don’t enjoy your grind or are not inspired by it, shift it to something else.
There are days for everyone where they don’t want to go to the gym, or to work, but that’s when you passion for your goal comes in.
Your dream is what keeps you going even when it seems unlikely you will achieve it.
You might have started going back to the gym and want to lose some weight. That weight isn’t going to vanish off your body after a month, two months, or even three months.
It can take month after month and even upwards of a year of consistent work and discipline to get the results you want. That’s where embracing the grind comes in.
One day at a time. You must put one foot in front of the other, every single day if you want progress.
I’ve learned to love the challenge of the grind. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows are apart of it it all.
The part about it that makes it so sweet is when you accomplish that goal. It’s a great feeling that I hope everyone can someday feel.
Rise and Grind By Daymond John
If you don’t know who Daymond John is, he is an entrepreneur and is also on the show Shark Tank. He wrote a book called Rise and Grind and it gives great tips on how to stay on your grind. He also talked with other people that have started companies from nothing and make it to the top.
This book is a tremendous example of what being on a grind is truly about.
Daymond has his own story of being on the grind.
In the 1990’s, he created the company FUBU. It’s a clothing line and when he first started it, he was working at a restaurant.
He would work 40 hours a week and then go and sell his clothing line on the side.
There were times he probably went on a dry spell of selling nothing to no one.
His inspiration and grind was the clothing line and so he figured out a way to make it happen. He believed in his dream even when other people told him it wouldn’t work or he was having a rough week in sales.
He kept going though.
The company has now sold over $6 billion in sales.
If he didn’t enjoy the grind or wasn’t inspired by it, he probably would’ve quit very early on after a small bump in the road.
There are a ton of examples of people starting out on something and just grinding it out. Through passion and extreme hard work, they made it happen.
So to end this post, everyone has a different way of grinding. Your goals can be achieved in more than one way.
Find something that lights a fire under you and just grind.
Day in and day out, go after something that you truly believe in.
If you go after something long enough, success will come to you.
Thanks and Be Great,
