Hustle & Heart will set you APART


No matter how many odds are against you, nothing compares to the power inside. Remember “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” I’m not sure who said it first but I remember this famous line from the 2005 movie, “HUSTLE & FLOW.” Hustle & Flow features amazing characters, hilarious punchlines and most of all, powerful words of wisdom.

Let’s face it, it’s hard out here for a pimp, no pun intended. It’s hard to believe in yourself when all you have is less than a dollar and dream. But as DJay would say, “Push that sh*t out shug!”

Just push it out, you have to see something inside of your soul that is way beyond your potential.  Something that is waiting to burst out. Hustle & Heart WILL set you apart.

It’s a must that you go the extra mile for dreams. You gotta hustle. Break every box that others put you in. Go hard, and TAKE WHAT YOU DESERVE. Whether it’s respect, power, money or your dream career if you hustle, you’ll put yourself on. Point, blank, period.

Hustling starts with setting an overall goal after you set a goal you’ll need an execution strategy. Put the key in and ride out. You’re in charge. You’ll get frustrated, and beat down but you have to see it forward. Grab the hustle by the wheel and drive to your passion, that’s where the heart comes into play.

When you’re hustling, your HEART must be in it. Your hustle must be executed with the deepest devotion to your grind. For example:

  • Waking up a little earlier than others
  • Overworking your peers
  • Doing whatever it takes
  • Staying up a little later to perfect
  • Consistently working towards your goals

Going the extra mile will set you apart, because not very many people are willing to consistently apply themselves to their dreams. It won’t be easy but the adrenaline pumping from your heart and that mean a** hustle rattling your soul will get you to your destination. Everybody’s gotta have a dream, go get yours.






How To Be Successful: Focus on you own Sh*t


HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL: If you’re modern-day millennial like myself, you probably spend tons of time on social media! Double tapping, exploring, comparing, and stalking your ex due to the new updated features. (Followed by THATBROKEBITCH2000, THOTHOE1017, +12 others) You catch my drift right?

After realizing how much time you’ve wasted comparing and contrasting the virtual world to your reality, you’ve lost 5 hours, missed your workout, and your not ready to conquer tomorrow.

Hey, I’m not judging you, we’ve all been there before! I know I have, but I realized it was consuming my life and wasting my damn time! Hell, I was keeping up with the Kardashians, and they can’t even keep up with (fill in the blank yourself)________. No shade, no tea!

That’s when I asked myself, myself said, “Hmmm?”, “What can I do to become the best version of Gabriella?” That’s when it hit me “FOCUS ON YOUR OWN SH*T!”

At that point, I was having mirror to mirror Kermit The Frog hoodie moment. I knew I had the power to change my life! I gained 5 more hours, no daylight savings honey! Multiply 5 by 7 that’s 35 hours a week, sheesh that ’s equivalent to part-time job! Sadly, I wasn’t getting paid to lurk and get hurt. I didn’t get paid to compare and contrast my life to the mofo’s that are doing the Bow Wow challenge on the daily, again no shade and absolutely no tea!


FOCUS. FOCUS. FOCUS. As soon as I decided to focus on my own sh*t, and when I say my own sh*t, I mean my own sh*t! Not Beyonce sh*t, Rihanna sh*t, not Kim Kardashian sh*t, not Baller Alert sh*t, or that damn shade room sh*t, everything started to come together!

Yeah, you’re doing good but you could be doing great! It’s May 22nd, we’re are almost halfway through the year, what have you done so far? YOU need to FOCUS.

Focusing on your own shit will help you put everything into perspective. The vision that you have for your life will become clearer as you spend more time with yourself. Focus brings passion, passion brings motivation, motivation leads to consistency, and consistency leads to success. Some people may categorize success as a single event, but success is consistently achieving YOUR goals. Pay your dues, work hard, fall in love with the process, the results will show their ass honey! Stick with it. Focus. Flourish.
