Millennials, the ‘It’s not a hobby, it’s a side hustle’ generation. We are hustlers. Hustlers of hopes. Hustlers of dreams… Hobbies don’t exist in our world. Whatever we put our heart, soul, sweat and tears into is the hustle. May hobbies rest in peace because they are a thing of the past.
Millennials, we are the hustle generation. In our world, there’s no such thing as a work life balance, that’s a myth. We wake up early. We are up LATE. Sleep is not a concept. We sacrifice family time and friendships. We work on our side hustles to live the lives we strive for and that makes up for itself. Maybe one day hobbies will make a comeback, but for now it’s all about that SIDE. HUSTLE.
Doing what you love is no longer a hobby. That very thing you love becomes your passion and that passion turns into fuel, and becomes fuel for a dream that if you hustle hard enough will come true.
This is the future, creating our own paths where we couldn’t before. Putting every ounce of energy left in our day to forge our own career. Don’t waste time on a hobby, put all your energy into the side hustle, because that passion will push you through the tough times.
Life is full of sacrifices, sometimes it means being practical and working a job you have no connection to in order to ultimately do the job you love! Making the most of your time and hustling hard. Because that’s what life is about, right?!
The goal in this life (at least for me) is to do what you love each and every day. EVERY. DAMN. DAY. Even if that means at first working a full-time ‘day’ job to support the side hustle until the hustle gets off the ground, then so be it. Millennials are NOT entitled… We are the hardest damn working generation. We are the hustlers who create disruption (the good kind, obvi), seek innovation, and know how to make change.
Us Millennials are not having kids, instead, we’re popping out side hustles! Our side hustle is our baby. We nurture the hustle and give it our all until it can stand on its own two feet. The hobby is now the side hustle.
With the world we live in today, we are constantly reminded about what’s truly important. Everything is put into clear perspective, and that perspective guides us into the light of our future.
Don’t forget that at the end of the day, it’s about the HUSTLE and the HEART behind it all.
