Your Version of Hard Work vs Your Competition’s Version

  For the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of research. I’ve been searching for tips and advice from people who are where I want to be. The other day I came across something that made me question some things about my journey. Have you ever felt like you were going hard and really pushing yourself to make something happen, and then you hear about someone else’s process and they went 5 times harder than you? Here I am, thinking about all the things I’m doing and how bad I want something and there’s other people who are working 4 to 5 times as hard. It was definitely a wake-up call. I started to actually feel bad. How can I say that I really want this, but I’m not working half as hard as the people who are where I want to be? It always seems like people work harder when they’re finally bringing money in. In the beginning it’s like you’re working hard for free, and after a while you slow down until you finally start earning money. It always felt like once the money start rolling in that’s when people pick up the pace because they have an extra something to help push them. Now I’m seeing some people work extremely hard for a long period of time even when they’re not getting anything from it. They are just determined and focused on what they want. I remember hearing someone say that sometimes it’s not about talent. You don’t have to be more talented than your competition, you just have to do what they won’t do. They said that if the other person is working way harder than you then they are going to succeed. They are going to make it further and get there quicker. They’re doing something that you won’t. I understood that then, but I really get it now. I have to go for my dreams like everything is riding on it. I have to go for it as if I have a deadline that ends soon. If someone told you that you had to go from point A to point B in 60 days are your dream wouldn’t come true how hard would you work? I have to start looking at it like that. I have to remember that even though it might seem hard. I have to push harder no matter how far away I am from my first goal. Sometimes that monster called “self-doubt” might creep up on you and make you second guess yourself. It might knock you off your journey and double your path, but we have to learn to get back on it and try our best to stay on route. I can do this! We can do this! It’s time to stop riding the breaks and hit the gas. 😉
