5 Habits of Real Hustlers Who’ve Created History

Published

What’s up with this hustle epidemic? Almost every video I watch or every post I see on Instagram are full of hustle words and tough promises. But, how many people actually hustle? How many of them walk their talk?

I think many people should chill and stop labeling themselves as the biggest hustlers in the game while drinking Corona on the beach and enjoying spring break. Hustle is nothing but the synonym of hard work, the real dedication and willingness to eat dirt.  

Since smart is the new sexy and we all have a chance to succeed, I have for you 5 habits of people who aren’t scared to get their hands dirty and understand the true meaning behind hustle:

1. They don’t forget where they came from

People who work hard and work their way up never forget about their beginnings when nobody  took them seriously. Because of their humble personality and constant improvement, they are moving to the top and reaching their goals.

Hustlers don’t look down on people because they are up. They remember where they came from and feel grateful for it. They understand that their past was shaping them and allowed them to become who they are today. It is the benefit of not having it all.  

“Humility, that low, sweet root, from which all heavenly virtues shoot” – Thomas Moore

2. They create a habit of sacrifice

Some people think that sacrifice takes about 6 months to a year to get where they want to be and then they can just relax and enjoy benefits. They don’t understand that hard work and progress are for life if they want to keep their results.

I agree that once people reach a certain point in their success, they have more freedom and opportunities, but some level of sacrifice is always required. Wealthy people aren’t wealthy because they have a lot of money, they are wealthy because they know how to work with money and sacrifice materialistic stuff to build something bigger.

The pain from sacrifice isn’t so intense for hustlers because he or she knows where they are going. Their vision and purpose are greater than any short term pleasure.

3. They learn every day

People who hustle understand that knowledge is their biggest power. You can lack money, you can lack resources, but if you have knowledge and belief in place, nothing can stop you.

If you want to turn yourself into a true hustler, self-education needs to become your second language. Read, listen and then put your knowledge into practice. Absorb any information which can move you closer to your goals.

4. They take risks

Many people get intimidated by risk. In fact, the word itself sounds scary, which is exactly why we should benefit from it. Sometimes you need to take a chance to move forward and learn something new. You can lose, but you can win too.

People who have their blood made of hustle, understand risk and fear are a part of the process. On the one hand, they are smart and logical when it comes to making decisions because they don’t want to mess up their hard work. On the other hand, they know that they must risk every once in a while to take the game to the next level.

“Take risks: If you win, you will be happy. If you lose, you will be wise.”

5. They encourage others and support their dreams

Hustling is a hard work and sacrifice, it is also one of the most fulfilling activities because it creates progress and makes us grow. True hustlers understand all the benefits of going after their dreams, and they support others to get on the board as well.

You can often get support from people who work hard because they know how much it takes and how important is overall. Hustlers genuinely want others to succeed.  Every true hustler has a true heart.

    I love this! I often write about my beginnings on my website and talk about sacrificing materialistic change. It is definitely a mind shift that many don’t understand.
