Whether you're a full-time employee or an aspiring entrepreneur, there are struggles that come with work. The difficulties come with the territory. From money to dealing with cliques at work, there are stressors for everyone. This life can take a toll on you emotionally and most certainly financially. For the entrepreneur, people enjoy being independent, not having to go through so many channels of approvals and those who are lucky enough to find their business passion can feel very fulfilled personally. I know too many people that LOVE what they do and money seems to always follows their passion. It doesn't happen overnight, but these people are committed to living that life. Living the life of sacrifice... No matter if you are 9-5 or an entrepreneur, we all sacrifice something.
Life is filled with unknowns and obstacles, but being cool with going with the flow is only way to go. You can alleviate so much pressure and anxiety by being open to what the universe offers us on a daily basis. Everyday we can get distracted from the outside influences and that's ok. Take some time to realize that the outside distractions are only distractions and remind yourself to get back on your path.
Ignore the nay-sayers and never compromise. Values are important not only for ourselves, but other people respect you for truly believing in something and standing behind your beliefs. If you are on a path of personal discovery, your time will come - so don't give up.
I live the life of reality and sharing whatever knowledge I have with others that are interested in absorbing it. People respect my hustle because I'm out there grinding and trying to live the life I want. This life is all we have, so ensure you make decisions based on your heart and not your wallet. Commit yourself to your mission. Easier said than done, but no regrets.... We all live that life.
