As some of you are well aware, I’m trying to reach people that are seeking this knowledge. I was fortunate to obtain a lot of this information years ago when I stepped foot into the Game.
Now it’s time to pass it along to those that need it.
For those of you that have been following me over the years you know I always say, “Hustling has to be in you.”
This doesn't necessarily mean you’re “born” a Hustler, but there are certain traits that all aspiring entrepreneurs have. Whether they were learnt over the years – they had some strong examples in front of them – or they have just begun to think a certain way.
Hustling is a lifestyle; it’s a way of looking at the world and the situations we face. It’s much more than just a clever title.
These are 7 very noticeable traits that if you have them, then guess what? You’re different! You may have Hustling in you and not even know it. It’s like a small fire that quietly burns inside of you, and the information that I have for you will pour some gasoline on it.
Prepare for the blaze.
Let’s look at these 7 traits one-by-one. You may not have ALL of them, but if you have 4 or more, then welcome to the club!
And if you don’t have any of these traits or only a couple – keep rolling with me, you may begin to think with Uncommon Sense too.
(1) No matter what job you have or what position you hold, no matter how much or how little responsibility you have on your job – You hate it! BUT you’re one of the best employees there.
Hustler’s make the best employees. We also hate working for other people. How does that work? Because Hustlers have an inherent understanding of focus, hard work and taking pride in what they do.
We want our work to reflect us – even if it doesn't mean anything to anyone else. And here is where the problem comes in. When you work for someone else, this effort is seldom appreciated. Plus, we would rather spend our time doing things that make us wealthy, not someone else.
(2) You naturally, without thinking about it, avoid drama whether in your personal or work life. It doesn't really interest you.
Hustlers are very “neutral”. We look at the big picture of things. We can see both sides of the coin and agree and disagree with them both. This is a natural use of perspective – something we just “have”.
We avoid drama because it’s a waste of our time and energy.
(3) You HATE "unqualified" authority, but you respect it. You understand your position in the grand scheme of things.
Hustlers really, really, really don’t like being told what to do – by anyone who they feel isn't "qualified". Yes, this includes parents and even wives or husbands. Hustlers are free-thinkers and we like to move to the beat of our own drum, even if that beat is off rhythm. We’ll get it right sooner or later.
(4) You can’t stand for your fingernails to be dirty.
You may be laughing at this one. I don’t know what it is, but most Hustlers like their fingernails clean. Even if they work a lot with their hands, they will clean their nails thoroughly as soon as they can. I can count the number of Hustlers I've met on one hand who didn't care about their fingernails. Odd, isn't it?
(5) Anything about making more money or creating a better life attracts you. It’s like a moth to a flame; you can’t resist.
This is self-explanatory. It’s not that Hustlers are all about the money, it’s just that we have a drive to be able to sustain ourselves. Forget asking them for favors, jobs, promotions, vacation days – again we want to move by the beat of our own drum.
Hustling is about more than just wealth building – to us, it’s about freedom in all aspects of our life. Money helps with that.
(6) People come to you with their problems and situations – even if you've just met them!
This is part of the Hustler’s or Player’s “aura”. It’s an energy we give off that other people can sense and "pick-up".
People relax around Hustlers and other people that seem to be steering their own ship in life. Hustlers, although not always the best problem solvers, we are damn good listeners. In fact, many of us build our businesses off of carefully listening to people.
(7) While people are caught up in having the latest and greatest so they can “look good” – you would rather look “good enough” and spend your money more practically.
Most Hustlers are very aware spenders. They are more focused on real advancement in life than just looking like they have advanced in life.
Yes Hustlers like nice things. Yes, we can spend extravagantly here and there but we would rather “grow” money first, than “show” money first. Do you follow what I’m saying?
As always, keep it moving.
