‘Hustling‘ is fast becoming a metaphor for basic human struggles. From the hawker on the street to the conductor in a bus to even a banker in his air-conditioned office, all would consider their jobs ‘hustles’.
We are all unique in different ways. Everyone has that natural special ability peculiar to them. This ‘talent’ has to be discovered, accepted and nurtured before it can be harnessed to its full potential. This ability could be singing, dancing, drawing, painting, writing or something not necessarily ‘creative’ but is special and peculiar to you.
Most times for your hustle to be easier, your ‘job’ has to be in harmony with your talent. When your hustle involves your talent, you barely break a sweat and derive pleasure doing what you are doing. Someone highly skilled in mathematics has no business pursuing a career in law, likewise someone with a beautiful voice and enjoys singing should not work in a bank.
Nowadays we are ‘deceived’ that white-collar jobs are mor rewarding so no one wants to get skills in crafts anymore. That notion is indeed wrong because I believe ‘the more the dirt, the more the money’. We should think outside the box and follow our hearts. Do what you are good at and you would get even better. Most rappers in America sold ‘crack’ during the day and recorded songs at night when they were younger, likewise bus conductors who are athletic could find spare time to make it to the stadium to practice.
All in all, these two go together. Since talent is God-given, using it alongside your hustle would definitely lead to God further blessing your hustle.
