The other day I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram & I came across a quote by businessman, KILLER Gary Vee ( who is just fucking awesome, by the way. Michael and I got a chance to meet with him ). The quote said: STOP DOING SHIT YOU HATE.
So obvious. So simple. BUT SO TYPICAL.
Seriously though. People wake up everyday for 40 years straight going to jobs they hate, working for people they hate, doing tasks they hate.
Ok so, today you’ve caught me in a specific mood. I mean things around here are getting HYPER ORGANIZED. After traveling & getting life-changing surgery, I’ve come to the realization that there are things I want to change, business-wise. SO I’m making proactive changes.
AKA instead of just continuing doing certain things I hate, I’m getting out of my comfort zone to make changes. It sucks, it’s hard at first, but it’s worth it. Better than looking back in 20 years & realizing I did things I didn’t like & became compliance.
The point of this post is to encourage you to do the same. Keeping this general: if you are in a situation that you HATE or if you have a habit you hate, change it.
Really, I can assure you there’s no fairy Godmother that’s going to appear from the sky & fix it, you know?
The only person you can count on to make these positive changes is YOU.
I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails from women who want to launch their own business because they’re working in a negative environment & want to branch out on their own.
My advice? Just do it. Pull the trigger.
Because if you don’t do it now, you’re wasting time and energy on things you hate.
As Gary says: STOP DOING SHIT YOU HATE.
It’s really surprisingly simple. Just put an end to it OR make moves towards getting yourself out of the negative situation.
Now this message may not apply to work or business at all; maybe this applies to an ongoing coffee date with someone you don’t really like. Maybe this applies to a specific workout ( AKA I hate long distance running, sorry— hate it ). Or maybe it’s more about something bigger than all of this.
What a waste of life to do things you hate, right?
To further the point, Gary breaks it down quickly in this YouTube video: “stop doing shit you hate, you have all the opportunity to crush it. There is no doubt in my mind that you are going to kill it and that is what I want to talk to you about today. I really want to talk about PP, patience and passion. There are way too many people in this room right now that are doing stuff that they hate. Please stop doing stuff that you hate! There is no reason in 2014 to do shit you hate! Promise me you won’t, because you can lose just as much money being happy as hell.”
Anyway, I sincerely hope that if you’re doing something that makes you feel uncomfortable that you take steps to fix it & remove the issue from your life. YOU ARE WORTH IT.
So! Ask yourself: if you’re doing shit you hate today…how are you making proactive strides to get yourself out of these negative situations? AND of course, if you have any advice on the topic, WEIGH IN! I swear you guys always have such positive tips/tricks/advice.
