How might I use my passion to hustle with intention?

Hustle with intention. Let “Yes And” overrule the naysayers.

“How long will it take for me to reach the end of the tunnel?”

Do you ever feel this way? Sometimes there are moments when you just want to stop everything because you are scared and tired. Entrepreneurs are there quite often due to the journey they take as a business owner. Being determined and diligent is important but doing that with intention will allow your engine to last 100x longer.

How do you keep persevering despite the obstacles? Try these three steps.

First, pause to reflect. When we give ourselves a bit of space to reflect, we can learn to see our challenges in a digestible way. Do you have a big deadline? How might you break it down so that you don’t feel overwhelmed?

Second, say “yes and” when solving problems. Someone is always going to stop you from getting somewhere. Don’t let that stop you from going where you want to go. How can you tell yourself “yes and” to take a step closer towards your goals and worry less about what others tell you?

Lastly, hustle with intention. You may not get what you wanted. You may not get it even at the time you had wanted it. But if you continue working hard with intention, you may find yourself at the right place at the right time talking to the right person. That’s not luck. That’s results from hustling with intention.

Take these approaches and create your own fortune cookie.

This week ask yourself: “How might I use my passion to hustle with intention?”

Look forward to seeing many of you this weekend at Creative Jump!
