If you aren't hardworking, maybe it's not because you're lazy, but because you hate what you are working on. I believe there is a hustler in all of us. It isn't about your genetic makeup. It's about your environment and the emotional state in which you are operating. If you are having trouble getting up in the morning going to work, there is a good chance you would be happier hustling. If you had all the free time in the world, what would you want to master? What would give you a sense of purpose? What would make your heart beat a little louder? The hustle is somewhere inside you, you just have to find it and set it free. Ask yourself, what's the one thing you can do this week such that by doing it, everything else would become easier or unnecessary? EDIT: Everyday in this thread I am going to post something that motivates me. If that can move even a single soul to take action today, for me that is victory.
