There’s a bumper sticker floating around that says this: “Too much ain’t enough.”
How true this is. We live in a Burger King world: "Have it your way."
While this is a great slogan for a food service company, it doesn’t work when it comes to your own personal journey in life.
The amateur is someone who wants what they wan t, now.
The problem with that, is that when get get it, it doesn’t work, or it isn’t enough.
The restlessness doesn’t abate, the pain doesn’t go away, the fear comes back as soon as the buzz wears off.
The ebbs and flows of any type of startup lifestyle is one that spans the entire emotional spectrum. From the highest highs, to the lowest lows. The vast majority of the time however, is stuck in absolute purgatory. When you must show up for work. You must put in the time. You must put in the grind. We can live off of big wins… but not for long. We can’t hold our hat on those big wins. As big as they are, the other side of the coin will be some of your lowest lows. Failure. Depression. Lethargy, and of course, the imminent feeling of giving up.
The muse won’t come. Inspiration won’t come. Motivation won’t come.
Get over the instant gratification life when it comes to creating the blockchain designed life that you want.
Celebrate the wins, but always remember, the grind is real.
For me I probably don’t celebrate the wins enough. There are so many times I can remember, coming back from a powerful and encouraging meeting with an investor, client, or customer. I remember the feelings of elation. I did it! What an achievement!.. only to get back to my desk at home and remember that at the end of the day. I must still grind.
I snap out of it, put my head down, and put my hands on the plow.
In today’s B90X, tell us. Where must you put your head down, put your hands on the plow, and grind? Let us know. We’d love to encourage you to keep it up!
