I won't take credit for this quote, but I absolutely believe in it. A friend of mine saw this and sent it to me because the article reminded him of me. What a compliment, right?!
The article sums me up to a T. I will hopefully be "successful" in life because I out-hustle those around me. I'm not the smartest, most cunning, and I certainly am not a master at anything, but I damn sure will put my heart and soul on the line with everything I do. I won't make myself bland and come down to your level to satisfy you and your lack of self-confidence or drive. Bring it on. You won't be the first or last to try to cut me down to make yourself feel better.
For me, I may out-hustle you and be the first to arrive and the last to leave, but what legacy are you going to leave? I may be extremely intense and take life by the horns, but it's in my DNA. Don't hate on me :)
What you should be focusing on is what "out-hustling" means to you and how you're going to boldly challenge the status quo around you.
