Quit worrying about what everyone else wants, worry about what YOU want!
Hey, this is episode 35 of the Think Digital podcast.
That little quote above says it all and highlights everything we’re talking about today.
Maybe you’ve reached a point in your journey where you’re making enough money and things seem like they’re going well, but you’re totally overwhelmed and stressed out by the amount of work you’re putting in.
I cannot tell you how many people reach out to me and ask how they can make the same amount of money but simply work fewer hours.
That is the big question now, isn’t it?
In this episode, I highlight four major steps you need to take to leave the hustle behind.
Step 1: Determine What YOU want.
First, you must figure out what you want out of your life. You thought you wanted this hustle, but now you want out. Chances are, you bought into something that someone else told you. Maybe a coach, or mentor, or family member told you this was the right way to go, and now you feel stuck.
Step one has a few sub-steps to help you determine what you want.
First, figure out what your perfect day would look like if you could have it. Schedule it out and see how different it looks from how you currently live.
You also need to figure out what your perfect income looks like so you can determine what your budget needs to be.
Lastly, find out what your output needs to look like for you to feel fulfilled and successful. A lot of people spend time on jobs and projects that are not actually getting them anywhere. Find out where you can cut the fluff in your day and still get the job done.
That’s step one.
Step 2: Determine What The Market Wants
This step is a distant second, so do not worry about it as much. People who tell you to find an open market and fill it, are feeding you BS. The internet has given us the ability to do something that we love, and then find a market for it. There is a market for everything, so do something that energizes your soul and makes you want to hop out of bed every day.
Step 3: Get Accountability
If you’re going through everything on your own without anyone to hold you accountable, you are WAY LESS likely to succeed. You need someone who shares your interests to keep you on track. Hire a coach, join a mastermind, join a Facebook group – do something.
Step 4: Adjust As Needed
What you wanted your week to look like a year ago might be different than what you want it to look like today. You need to understand yourself and continuously re-evaluate your goals to get where you want to go.
Look at your life today and if you are not doing what YOU want to do every day, creating what you want to create and making the money you want to make – it might be time for a change.
When you're living your best life, you'll never have to hustle because you'll love what you're doing!
