To Hustle or Not to Hustle

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to talk about the idea of working

hard and hustling toward that

which you're interested in.

Now, sometimes within the space of

mindfulness, we might think that working

hard or hustling toward our goals,

there some sort of conflict there.

But hustling can be really important.

It's how we get things done,

how we change and grow.

But I think knowing why you're

hustling is more important because

many of us hustle and work hard

out of habit, not out of alignment.

And it's important to periodically ask

yourself, what am I working toward?

Why is it important?

How will I know when I've attained it?

What am I giving up along the way?

And am I okay with that?

When you work through these questions,

it helps you reorient toward what you're

working toward, why you're working toward

it, all the things that you might have to

give up along the way, and really making

sure that feels in alignment for you.

So as you head into the rest of your week

and into today, take some time to reflect

on what you're working toward and why.

Working hard is great, but many times it's

just driven by patterns of conditioning

that are not aligned with who we currently

are or who we're trying to become.

And the questions I've shared here

can help you gain more self-awareness

about why you're doing what you're

doing and whether or not it's

what you want to continue doing.

So the key takeaway here is

that working hard can be really

important, but notice, is it out

of habit or is it out of alignment.

And what might you need to do or

change to bring it back into alignment?

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
