Stop saying ‘my hustles must pay’
I’ve researched and I’ve gathered a few reasons why you should stop saying and using the phrase.
The phrase itself is too desperate
If you take a good look at the phrase, you’ll get the meaning. Let’s define the phrase using word for word
- Hustles-work(whether good or bad)
- Pay-bring forth result(whether good or bad)
You see, the phrase doesn’t care if you’re doing a good work neither does it care the kind of result you get. Do you really want to take this risk?
Makes you take irrelevant risks
Perhaps you started saying and using the phrase ‘my hustles must pay’ because you’ve seen countless of your friends who got successful therefore you’ll want to be successful as well. This will make you take risks that may not be necessary
Focused on a bad thing
I’ve heard many people, including my friends who’ll say that if what they do don’t turn out great, they’ll go illegal. This simply means that they’re doing something good with something bad in mind.
You’ll miss out little details
Because of too much focus to get wealthy, you may forget other important things. Take fun for example. Life is too short to worry about everything. You need time for yourself don’t you?
You’ll forget the difference of good and bad
If you’ve tried good and legal means to make money but all to no avail, you wouldn’t mind going illegal.
You’ll do illegal things
When someone does illegal things, he/she would be arrested. Going illegal means you’re taking a risk of getting arrested therefore spoiling your reputation, hurting the people who care about you
You’ll have no value for your life
What value does someone who doesn’t mind doing anything, taking any risk have for his own life? When you’re too focus on getting results from your hustles, you’ll in time, begin to lose value for your life. This is why you may start taking useless risks
You’ll have no value for life
What value of the lives of others would someone who doesn’t value his/her own life has? When you get too inclined with this phrase, you may view others as stepping-stones and you would do anything to remove people off your way
You’ll have no value for emotions
You wouldn’t mind hurting people. This is particular for internet scammers who act as someone’s lover to steal money from the person. These people don’t care if the person will feel heartbroken or not. Do you want to get to the length of hurting people?
Your life although may be enviable, isn’t worth living
Would you want your children to live this kind of life? If asked to advise someone you care about, would you tell him/her to do illegal things?
