Young, Scrappy, and Hungry

This past weekend, I was able to watch Hamilton, the musical. There's a lot of hype going around about the musical and part of me was prepared to look at it from a more critical eye than most of my fellow theater-goers.  In fact, when it was done, my companion asked what I thought and I didn't have a single thing to tell him.  I really needed to sit and process it and probably listen to the soundtrack a couple of times before having a clear idea on how I felt about it. 

After listening to the soundtrack, there's one line that continues to echo in my mind: young, scrappy, and hungry.  I love that line. I can't stop thinking about it.  As I've shared before, I am at the start of building my business.  It's my first time stepping into the entrepreneurship world and it's been scary as hell.  But I've realized that while I'm not that young I am scrappy and hungry.  And if I want to meet my goals and stop living in a world that feels like groundhog day each week, I need to wake up and be scrappy and hungry and to do what I need to do to make my dreams become a reality.

There are too many days when it's easy to just come home and sit on the couch and lose myself to tv and to be honest there have been many days when I have done exactly that.  But here's the thing if I want to make something of my life, if I want to have a legacy, and build something I can be proud of, I need to stop doing what's easy and stop being lazy.  No more excuses of being too tired and just get to work.  I need to find the hunger within myself to keep taking action daily. 

Do you feel the same? Do you feel tired because you wake up each day knowing exactly what's going to happen?  Do you wonder what can you do to change your life?  Do you remember when you were young, scrappy, and hungry?  And do you remember when that hunger went away?  

If you want to know what to do to get it back.  If you want to talk to someone about the possibility of something more for your life, click here to jump on a call with me.  I know what it feels like and I still have days that feel like that, but I'm working towards a greater dream and I want to help you do the same.  Because we don't have to live in a world that feels like groundhog day ever, we deserve to live a life that makes us feel alive inside.
