#JustDoIt: The Art Of the Hustle

Hey guys,

I want to start by saying that I’m so beyond excited to be featured on the #SimplyMei blog! I’m so proud of my sister and soror Meisha and to see how she’s grown from the day she walked into my life, I’m honestly in awe. In the spirit of progression, I want to talk about the art of the hustle and moving forward with all the things you’ve wanted to do. Big or small, I firmly believe you should move forward on all of those things. Before we get into that, I want to tell you a little bit about the person speaking to you!

WHO: My name is Tiara Nicole and I am the CEO of Nicole’s Network. WHAT: I am committed to serving others through my personal testimony and I motivate others to consistently work towards self-development in order to find the freedom in the most authentic version of themselves. WHEN: Daily inspiration can be found on my social media pages (handles listed below) with weekly #MotivationalMonday video blogs on my YouTube channel! WHERE: Anywhere you need me to be! WHY: I believe that if my pain can benefit even just one person, it was worth suffering through!

Now that you know a little bit about me, it’s time to jump into why you’re reading this post! So do me a favor, take a moment to think of all the things you’ve wanted to do, but somehow convinced yourself the idea was too big or too crazy to achieve. Yes that one too! And if I could be so bold, ask yourself why you felt like it was too big or too irrational for you to accept and chase after? (That’s where the true growth comes from…asking yourself the difficult questions).

Now that you’ve gotten your goals the next step is to create an actionable game plan with steps and deadlines for yourself to be held accountable to. Take the big picture and break it down into smaller steps that you can track as you go along and set realistic timelines to those goals. This is probably the most important part of hustling, you have to be realistic with yourself and holding yourself accountable to those goals you’ve set. If you can’t hold yourself accountable, share those goals with someone you can trust to push you in the direction of your goals. If you believe you can accomplish those goals, then you can and you will! Additionally, if you don’t think you can then you won’t, so be mindful of the internal self-talk you repeat to yourself.

You have your action plan now? Hopefully it’s written down, because if your memory is as bad as mine it has to be written! The
