You cannot complain that:
• you are never invited to an event or to hang with friends or to speak at that conference
• the client never hires you
• you are never chosen for any notable lists
• your work is never published
• you don’t get Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/Snapchat/whatever followers
• your life isn’t what you think it should be or what you deserve it to be
• the body you see in the mirror is one that you do not like
• someone is not doing something that you would like them to or if they are doing something that you wish they wouldn’t

If you:
• never return phone calls/texts/emails
• rarely support your friends, colleagues and peers in whatever they do
• don’t work hard to learn client needs and wants
• never hustle
• do not make an effort to get your work seen
• don’t engage with others online
• are not prepared to take actions to get your body and health where you want it to be
• if you have never before expressed those thoughts to them

Say it with me: You are in control of your life.  This life we live: we choose and drive it. And that is such a wonderful thing.

Never before has it been so easy to follow your dreams. We have so many wonderful tools available at our hands. It’s incredible. But just because you want to do something or be something, doesn’t automatically make you that. Nor does it mean that you will be good at it right away. Everyone’s Mom thinks they are the best at what they do. You need to work hard to achieve your goals. Anyone can say they are a photographer or writer or whatever they dream up to be, but it’s about putting in good solid time and effort into being the best that you can possibly be. Dream it up. Make a list of what you want to accomplish. Hustle. Hustle some more. Connect with others. Build your community. Support each other. Hustle more. Then hustle even harder.*
