Stop Bitching and Start Hustling – Resources for Motivation #1

start hustling

Title says it all, below are resources that got me fired up, now it’s your turn to get off your fucking ass:

1. Difference Between “Would And Could” — In A Comfy World, Put Evolutionary Pressure On Yourself!

I find it appropriate to use this video as the first in this series as it had such a big influence on me, if you can’t tell by the title.

In this video Tyler explains the strange situation us humans now face where if we don’t work to produce results there are no longer any real consequences. He explains that all throughout history we were forced by the external world to become stronger, to work and constantly evolve or we would be killed by something/someone or starve. .

The people who get ahead in life are those who put the evolutionary pressure on themselves, since no one else really does it, it’s pretty easy to rise to the top.

2. Joe Rogan Experience #405 – Steven Pressfield, Aubrey Marcus

For those of you who haven’t heard of the Joe Rogan podcast, mate, you’re missing out.

This one is my personal favorite, although most of them are reasonably motivating/funny/interesting to listen to.

Steven Pressfield is the author of the War of Art, and for those of you who haven’t read it, this podcast is basically the book but put into a casual conversation. Pressfield describes the force that stops us from achieving all of the awesome shit we are capable of and should have achieved already (Resistance) and how he deal with Resistance as a writer.

Recommended for anyone who has trouble with procrastination and excuse making, plus it’s funny as shit.


3. Become Unbreakable

Another big influence for me and the making of this blog; good ol’ Victor Pride from Bold and Determined. This guy writes with the same blunt, shut-the-fuck-up-and-hustle attitude that I do in my posts, and it works. Spend 10 minutes on this blog and try not to be fired up.

He is a serial target for Feminists, which is a good thing. What man would be worth listening to if feminists gave him their tick of approval?

4. The World Belongs to Those Who Hustle

Self-explanatory title.

We are all basically average, but the hustlers are generally the ones who get ahead.

I don’t have defined abs because I have perfect genetics and a naturally good metabolism, I have abs because I consistently hustle for them. Day after day I stick to my training and dieting program (one that actually works) and I don’t stop hustling.

It isn’t luck that allows me to progress rapidly with my lifts, it’s the art of consistent hustle.

5. I Hustle Everyday – Deez Nuts

Set this song as your alarm, set your alarm to 4AM and you will have a good day.

Go hustle, mate.

I fucking love Joe Rogan. He’s got a number of talks and words that kick start most of my day. He’s one of my influential figures.

I agree, if you’re in your 20’s you NEED to hustle. If you aint hustlin’, you’re losing out. TIME, TIME and TIME is what will sculpt that person and life you desperately be wishin’ for.

Colleagues ask me why the hell am I up at 4 am each day. I tell them gym, and books. They have no clue how little time we all have.

Epic post friend. Bookmarked.

    Yeah brother, I can definitely relate to that. The explanation “reading and writing” only increases their looks of incredulity.

      “Read and write? I thought you graduated from school already,” they reply.

      I tell them that school teaches you shit about the real world, they nod faintly and quietly go back to their kitteh photos on facebook.

Hi Ryan,

I just wanted to say that I am impressed with your website so I have it bookmarked. I can’t wait to read all of your articles.

And I absolutely agree with your message: The world belongs to those who hustle! A man can’t expect others to pressure him to realize his full potential; he has to have self-discipline to get things done (there’s really no other way).

    Hey mate,

    Yeah dude, it’s the opposite. Most people will pressure you into NOT accomplish all of the awesome shit that you should be.

    Glad you like it brother!
