You are not alone, we are all in this together. If you feel that you are struggling right now, you are not alone. If you feel that you are behind, you are not doing things, you are not delivering, you are not productive, you are not there where you thought you will be five years ago, it’s ok, you are not alone.
Some days you wake up in the morning and while you are going to work, all these thoughts come to your head. What I am doing? Why am I working every day in a job that I don’t like? Why am I not chasing my dreams? It’s ok, you are not alone! A lot of people have the same thoughts you have every single day. You just have to accept this. That is normal to have these thoughts.
Think about why you are doing it.
If you struggle every day going to work, just think about why you are doing it. You are doing it to support your family, pay your rent, your mortgage, put food on the table, buy clothes. You are not going for fun, you are working to bring some money home.
Nothing lasts forever. If you are in a job that you hate, you can always search for another job. Don’t suffocate on this. A job is not a prison, you can walk out anytime you want. If your dream is to have your own business you can always start it on the side, don’t quit your job.
If you are passionate about your side hustle you will grow it. You will find the way, and you will spend hours trying to grow it. We have the internet now. Do you realize how lucky we are that we have this amazing tool? You can start an online business in 30 minutes with $100. Just like that. Could your grandfather do that? No.
I am not saying its easy to create a side hustle. We are all tired after work and we just want to sit back and relax. You don’t have to do it every day after after work. Start with every other day, and see how that feels. If its too much do it every 2 days. The most important step is to start.
Go for your passion
Choose something that you are truly passionate about or something that really interests you and want to learn more about it. Don’t choose to start a side hustle because you believe you can earn a lot of money from it. That should not be the deciding factor. Choose something that you really enjoy and can’t stop talking about. That will keep you in the game and it will keep you going with the first failure or disappointment. The money will come along the way.
If you don’t have a passion or feel uninspired start with reading some books or listen to motivational podcasts. Books and podcasts really work for me. You learn a lot of things and get motivated. Books also help me relax. Podcasts I usually listen to when I work out and when commuting to work.
One of my favorite podcasts is https://www.capitalism.com/podcasts/capitalism-com/ by Ryan Daniel Moran. This podcast will get you motivated for sure, plus you will learn a lot of things from Ryan

You are not alone
I hope this article will make you feel better if you feel stuck with your life and realize that you are not alone. We are all in this together. We are all struggling every day and hustle for our loved ones. Some days are good, some days are great, some days suck. This is life. When you are having a bad day, just remember that you are not alone and better days will come.
Try to appreciate what you have. Always focus on the positive side of things and not on the negative. Whatever you focus on, grows. Your mind is a powerful tool, use it accordingly. When you are having a bad thought, interrupt it immediately, and replace it with a happy thought. It’s not easy I know, but if you consistently interrupt negative thoughts with happy thoughts, you will be a lot happier in the long run.
