HUSTLE.

LAURYN

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Everyday I’m, everyday I’m, everyday I’m hustlin’.

True dat.

Lemme tell ya: if I’ve had any success, it’s 100% attributed to hustling.

In general, people have aspirations, goals, ideas, & plans.

But none are executed without a lil hustle.

As Mr. Abe Lincoln said “things may come to those who wait…but only the things left by those who hustle.”

I know a lot of people don’t want to hear that; they want to hear about destiny ( AKA what’s meant to be will be— ::YAWN:: ), luck, or dreams that magically come true.

But newsflash!!!

Ya gotta EXECUTE…AKA HUSTLE.

Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.

Anyway, the framed picture above hangs right by my door. I look at it ( subconsciously or consciously ) every time I leave my house.

It says in pretty, dainty gold foil: HUSTLE.

The best reminder ever, right?

& BTW: I’m not preaching to act like some slimmy-ass, loser scam artist. All I’m saying is: execute, hustle, do what ya gotta do to make your dreams come to life.

Art of Mainliness states, “looking at the men that I admire from history, they all have one thing in common: they were hustlers. Theodore Roosevelt accomplished an insane amount of work because he lived the strenuous life, i.e. hustled. Thomas Edison patented thousands of inventions and perfected the light bulb because he spent all day hustling. Frederick Douglass was an orator, diplomat, newspaper editor, and author because he hustled. And pretty much every self-made man has the same story.”

The Skinny Confidential has grown because its been watered.

Day after day. It’s work. Like, the seven-days-a-week-bust-my-ass-kinda work. There’s been no short-cuts. I’ve worked weekends/birthdays/until 4 am, ten million times.

But hey, that’s all part of the hustle. And it’s truthfully worth every second.

A lot of people aren’t up for the nitty-gritty hustle. I sometimes don’t blame them- it’s hard. But if you’re up for it, then hustle your F-ing ass to get what you want.

Because ultimately, it’s up to you. Get outta your comfort zone.

What chu waiting for?

Go grab life by its balls, xx. Lauryn

    Well said lady! I think far too many people sit around waiting for their dreams to come true. They need to realize that successful people work HARD. You clearly are a great example of this. Thanks for reminding us!

    I literally love this! Good things come to those who hustle and, if you’re seeking success, there are no better people to surround yourself with than those who hustle!

    I just searched for this post in the archives. I was in the shower (how stereotypical) contemplating how life just isn’t swinging the way I wish it would, end then this post popped up in my head. So i got myself together, read this post, will set a new screensaver on every device I own and I will hustle till I get there. Thanks Lauryn x!
