“Without hustle, your talent will only get you so far.”
– Gary Vaynerchuk
The tone of this week’s quote is a little different than what I normally post, but I think Gary Vee’s words really highlight my mindset going into 2017.
For most of my life, I’ve gotten by on my natural talents combined with a ton of support (both emotionally and financially) from my family. While I’ve put a lot of work into my mental and emotional health over the past few years, I’ve yet to really exert myself when it comes to achieving the life I want externally. I guess you could say I’ve just been skating by my whole life, never failing at anything but also never achieving the kind of success I I know I’m capable of.
Along with focusing on mindfulness, I want to make this a year of hustle and execution. And for what seems like the first time in my life, I actually have a clear purpose to work towards: building this blog and my Youtube channel.
Here’s to a year filled with both presence and productivity!

we met months ago in sevilla and talked a little bit.
I just stumbled over your blog again (was in my bookmarks!? :-)) and read this article. Now I’m thinking if you checked out the website which I highly recommended to you, actualized.org. If not I’m sure this website can bring your self-actualization/spiritual-pursuits to a new level. That just popped into my mind, check it out if you haven’t so far 🙂
I wish you a great 2017 😉

I think I looked at the site a bit, but I haven’t really checked it out in depth. Thanks for the reminder though. I’ll definitely take a look at it this week.
