Thoughts About Hard Work

Blog, Business, Emotional Mindset, Money Mindset

Hard work can suck.

It’s not all rainbows, unicorns, and glitter. Oftentimes, there’s none of these and that’s what makes it feel hard. You often feel like you’re alone.

When you’re in the midst of hard work, there’s just YOU and the work that you really don’t feel like doing…

…marketing your business

…networking with others

…selling your services

Walking the dog always sounds better. Even the laundry… or catching up on a good book?

Or how about lunch with friends?

Definitely shopping, yes? Yessss!

All of this is way better than endless hours of battling your mind to produce work for the world to receive.

But then there is the result of the hard work.

The value of the hard work.

When you keep going, 6 months later you are living the byproduct of all the hard work you put in.

You then have MORE money to shop. MORE time for friends, dog walks, and luxurious baths.

But more importantly, you have a new identity. You believe differently about YOU.

You feel proud, accomplished, and valuable.

Then you think about the previous 6 months, the hard work, and the struggle.

And you appreciate it.

You look forward to more hard work. No seriously, you do.

You relax for a while, but you know life is better with the hard work than the struggle of feeling under-accomplished, underutilized, and underachieved with your potential.

So you choose some more hard work and get back to it.

That’s the journey.

Embrace the struggle. Do the hard work. Create something that blows your mind and changes the lives of those that need it.


This is an example of the business growth & mindset work we do in my private coaching program. Maybe you’re curious about what that would look like for you?

Let’s connect and talk about your goals and how I can help you get there. Grab your free 30-minute consultation here. 

The consult call is where I take the time to listen deeply to what your current situation looks like, what’s not working, where you want to be in your business, as well as your life, and help you map out a plan to get there. 

If we’re the right fit for each other, we can also talk about what it would look like to work together.
