Hustling Quote of the Week:
“Greatness only comes before hustle in the dictionary.” – Ross Simmonds
Besides the alphabetical order of the words as they appear in the dictionary, greatness always follows behind hustle. You need to hustle first in order to achieve great success. Contrary to what some envious folks may believe, people aren’t born great. They work hard to get that way. And honestly, you can too! You just have to hustle harder if you believe the odds are stacked against you, but you can get there.
