I’ve heard people quote Ray Kroc and say that ‘the more you sweat the luckier you get’. I see a lot of people ‘busy being busy’ as Robin Sharma often puts it. What is the role of being so busy working hard that you don’t have time for achieving anything you’d actually like to?
In a world driven by the mainstream 9-5 enslavement, we buy into the reality that we make money because we put in our efforts and sweat it out. We work for money while we wonder why nothing is really working out.
This question might seem cliched for a motivation blog, but do you really love what you do? Honestly, cross your heart and tell me that you are earning what you really deserve and that you love your work?
The day I walked out of the security illusion of the 9-5, or even the rest of the mainstream professions which society expected me to subscribe to, I realized that I could actually earn a lot more by doing what I love.
Yes, being adventurous is an experiment until you figure out what you’re game is. You aren’t going to get a prompt salary on the very first day of every month as promised. But you’ll finally be getting paid for what you actually contribute.
I’ve been actually encouraged to perform better and I don’t even compete anymore because I know that I work passionately.
When you leave your comfort-zone, initially you’ll find yourself uncomfortable. No surprises there. But you’ll soon realize that this was what you’ve been waiting to do for so long – getting paid for working passionately and living your dream.
Is that so hard to work on? Now, where is the role of hard-work here?
Hard work makes you an expert of working hard. Smart work makes you smarter, which is at least better. But when you work passionately towards your dreams, you fulfill them. This is my honest experience.
