Stop, take it in, but then keep going.

I spend a lot of time reminding myself to stop and enjoy the journey. Paying attention to the life around you is important. Live the life, and create the memories with the ones you love.

Don’t sacrifice the whole point for the hustle and pursuit of success.

However, you still need the hustle.

Make sure and stop, take a breath, enjoy the view, embrace the life. Then, get up, get back to work, and get back to the grind.

There’s a time to stop and take it in, but there is also a time to stop resting and get back to the grind, the hustle. I’m seeing so many entrepreneurs that have the balance out of whack. They spend all their time taking selfies for Instagram posting with the hashtag #hustle, but not doing any hustling.

PUT IN THE WORK!

We need more working my friend. A little less talk and a lot more action. The world bombards us with distractions, social media, youtube, Netflix; all designed specifically to draw you in. To SUCK your soul right into the never-ending scrolling, shows, and distraction from doing what needs to be done.

Just as the waves crashing on the beach never let up, they never subside then never rest. So is the world around you.

How do you beat it?

With purpose. With hard work. With the tenacious pursuit of fulfilling your calling. You don’t know what your purpose is; you’re not sure of your vision, then you better figure that out, and figure it out quick. Then get on it, and stop screwing off. We have a short amount of time on this rock, and you don’t want to waste it chillaxing in the sun when there is something to accomplish.

So make sure and enjoy the view, take it in, but then get up out of your chair, and get the #hustle on!

Stop, take it in, but then keep going.

Onward

Stop, take it in, but then keep going.

Don’t get distracted from your goals, but also don’t forget to enjoy life as well. Make it count.
