The problem I have with “hard work…”
The lengths that people go to to justify their own self induced suffering is extraordinary…

If you spend a bit too much time on Facebook around entrepreneurs, you will invariably see people bragging about the number of hours they’ve worked, or how much they have endured.

And I agree that there is work involved in being an entrepreneur. There is frustration and all that stuff but what’s happening right now is alarming. We have people actually going after the struggle and proudly telling the world that they only slept 2 hours the night before…

That’s when I start having a problem with it. The culture of “hard work” has become too much. Work doesn’t need to be hard for it to be called work. Being an entrepreneur is about doing what you love and what you’re good at. It’s not about having more problems than the average human.

Sometimes there are things we don’t like doing, it’s true, but the whole point of being an entrepreneur is to minimise these things. What’s the point of escaping the life of an employee if we’re gonna have less freedom in the end?

And that reminds me of when I was in University… Back then it was all about who revised the most. People would tell me they’d spent the whole weekend cramming through their course materials… I had just worked consistently throughout the year. Not hard, just consistently. NEVER whole weekends for sure…

I will let you guess who had the best results in the end…

Consistent effort, genuine interest, and love for what you do will beat hard work 100% of the time. IF you want to succeed, your work shouldn’t feel like it’s hard.

There is no universal law that states we have to sacrifice our own well being for moments of enjoyment. And there is no universal law that states everything has to be a grind of it to be worth it…

SO if you have been invaded by this culture of self flogging and need to get out of it fast for your own sanity and eventually your own success, I suggest you register for my next webinar below:
