The Hustler’s Playbook: The Non-Hustler’s Infection

first_imgWhen it comes to hustling, there is nothing more important than your mindset. You can understand this idea intellectually without really knowing what this means. Unfortunately, we have an example. A non-hustler posted a comment on a post on my Facebook page. His comment had nothing to do with what I posted, but here it is in its entirety”“Why don’t y’all take some time off from trying to get ahead and help someone else along? Y’all the ones making money off broke people doing all the work. Don’t get me wrong, I could sell thongs to a nun and then talk her out of them. I just don’t have the conscience to make money marking up somebody else’s work.”Let’s unpack some of this non-hustler’s infections.By trying to get ahead, you aren’t helping other people.The non-hustler believes that people who are striving to get ahead aren’t the kind of people who help other people. This is a classic example of the infection of envy. Hustlers create business, and as they grow, they need to hire people to help them create the value that they create for the people they serve.In one college economics class I took in college, the liberal professor was railing against trickle down economic. A young girl very innocently asked, “If trickle down economics doesn’t work, can you tell me how trickle up economics works?” She meant no harm, and she wasn’t being political.People with the means to help other people often do. Some people with the ability to help people don’t.  But the non-hustler is infected with envy.Capturing value is difficult.The non-hustler doesn’t understand how value creation and value capture works. Each of us is paid exactly what we are worth. We are paid for the value that we create. If you want more money, you create more value. Different outcomes are worth more or less based on how other people value them.Non-hustlers suffer the infection that causes them to misunderstand fairness. You can do what you love, but you can’t make the rest of the world value it.Selling is something you do to someone.I’m hard pressed to find a better version of this belief than what our non-hustler offers us. Nuns don’t buy thongs, and salespeople don’t sell things to people who don’t want or need them. The non-hustler makes a crude remark intended to prove that he is every bit as persuasive as any salesperson.Hustlers know that selling isn’t something you to do somebody. Selling is something you to for and with somebody, and something from which they benefit. The non-hustler is infected with the belief that one who sells is supposed to be taking advantage of someone else.There is inherent honor is being broke.The non-hustler reveals another infection when he says he is uncomfortable making money “marking up somebody else’s work.” The non-hustler has negative beliefs about money and how it is made. Minus a few people in the financial sector, no one creates real wealth stealing from other people.The non-hustler believes there is honor in being broke. This is an infection designed to protect the ego of the one infected. In their minds, it is better to be broke than to engage in the activities that generate money.I was broke until I was 13 years old and started working full time. I promise there was no inherent honor in not having money.If you would be a hustler, then examine your beliefs carefully. Do your infections serve you? Or are are they preventing you from producing the results you are capable of? Essential Reading!

first_imgRochdale teen Luke Matheson staying grounded after Man Utd goalby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveRochdale teen Luke Matheson is staying grounded after scoring in their Carabao Cup shootout defeat at Manchester United.Matheson, 16, claimed his first career goal at Old Trafford to equalise and force United into a penalty shootout with League One Rochdale in the teams’ League Cup third round tie.”I don’t think you actually can in words,” he said. “But it’s a special, special night for me, the players, the coaching staff, the fans. I don’t think I can sum it up in words, the feeling, the celebration in the dressing room after was surreal. Something I’ve never experienced before and I don’t think I’ll ever experience again.”I’m going in tomorrow (to school) to make up for it when we’ve got a day off. Got a psychology exam, so can’t wait for that!”It’s gonna be nice, everyone coming up to me [at school] and saying, ‘ah, you scored against United’. Most of my best mates are United fans, I’ve not turned my phone on yet, I’m kind of dreading it! I don’t know what tomorrow will be like, I think I’m going go in a little bit later so I can get some rest.”My education is something I’m very fond of I and I love it. And Rochdale and the school have been so supportive of me with all that, so I love learning.”It’s what I want to do, because football’s not a guarantee, you never know what could happen. You could be the best player in the world but anything’s possible and it’s best to have that back up plan just in case.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Fencing Fresh off title MarcAntoine Blais Belanger turns focus to Olympics

Ohio State senior epeeist Marc-Antoine Blais Belanger is hoisted up by his teammates after winning the 2018 NCAA Fencing Championships on March 25 in State College, Pennsylvania. Credit: Ohio State AthleticsTwo years ago, the biggest opportunity of Ohio State fencer Marc-Antoine Blais Belanger’s career was met with disappointment. After reaching the men’s epee finals in the 2016 NCAA Fencing Championships, Blais Belanger fell just short of the title, losing to Jake Hoyle, the top seed from Columbia.On March 25 in State College, Pennsylvania, Blais Belanger once again found himself one victory away from becoming the NCAA men’s epee champion. In the waning moments of overtime, with the hard-fought title bout against Sean White of St. John’s nearing its conclusion, Blais Belanger trailed 14-13. It looked like history was doomed to repeat itself.Then, in the final bout of his career, Blais Belanger turned the tide.With the clock winding down, Blais Belanger scored a touch on White to tie the score. Moments later, Belanger scored the touch with three seconds remaining that clinched his 15-14 victory.Disappointment turned to triumph.“Two years ago I came so close,” Blais Belanger said. ”If I wouldn’t have won [this time] it would have been really hard to swallow.”Blais Belanger’s four-year Ohio State career reached a redemptive conclusion, but he does not plan on letting his fencing career come to an end. With a successful and memorable college tenure now behind him, Blais Belanger has turned his attention to the sport’s greatest competition: the Olympics.Although Blais Belanger’s NCAA eligibility has expired, he plans to remain at Ohio State for one more year to complete his degree in mechanical engineering. He will still spend countless hours honing his skills in the Steelwood Athletic Training Facility to prepare for the final push to qualify and represent Canada in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.“[To qualify] you have to do almost every international competition and try to bank up on international points,” Blais Belanger said. “You have to be amongst the [best] in the Americas.”But Blais Belanger believes his collegiate career, during which he has competed at the NCAA championships all four years, has prepared him for the challenge of qualifying for and competing in the Olympics.“There’s so much pressure [in NCAA competition] because everyone’s [trying to] go out and be the best for their school,” Blais Belanger said. “There’s always so much intensity in every tournament … I think that’s going to help me a lot to handle pressure.”Blais Belanger also has competed for Team Canada at international competitions. Though he said the talent level is higher in international tournaments, they can’t match the intensity of NCAA competitions where team comradery and school pride inspire passion. “During international competition you focus on yourself,” Blais Belanger said. “Obviously if your teammate from your country does well you’re happy, but it’s not the same thing because you don’t depend on each other to win.”There are plenty of great college fencers who fail to reach the Olympics. While experience and preparation are important, a certain degree of natural talent is necessary to compete among the world’s greatest fencers. Ohio State fencing head coach Vladimir Nazlymov has an eye for Olympic talent. His lengthy resume includes three Olympic medals of his own when he competed for the Soviet Union in 1968, 1976 and 1980. He has been a member of the coaching staff of both the United States and Soviet national teams, and was the Soviet national team’s head coach in the 1988 Olympics. Nazlymov said he believes Blais Belanger has what it takes to be an Olympian.“[Blais Belanger has an] unbelievably strong neural system,” Nazlymov said. “He can be patient until last millisecond. It’s not timing. It’s [instincts]. In this case he’s unbelievable talent.”Maybe it was four years of learning to handle intense competition that allowed Blais Belanger to land the winning touch with three seconds remaining in his final college bout. Maybe the final strike was the type of instinctual response that his coach believes makes him a special talent.One thing is certain: as Blais Belanger comes closer to reaching the ultimate goal of his athletic career, he will need to thrive in big moments. If how he fared in the biggest moment of his collegiate career is any indication, he’ll do just fine. read more

Paul Scholes throws another jibe at Mourinho

first_imgFormer Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has thrown another jibe at the current manager, Jose Mourinho for his recent actions.The United legend has criticized Jose Mourinho after his reaction to the club’s 2-1 victory against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.A well taken free kick by Juan Mata and an own goal from Juventus defender, Alex Sandro gave United a dramatic comeback win in Turin, and Mourinho cupped his ears to Juventus supporters at the full-time whistle after alleging that he had received abuse from the stands.However, Scholes, who has been vocal about the former Chelsea manager’s football style in the past, has claimed that the United boss showed ‘a lack of class’ after the win.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.Scholes told BT Sport, as quoted by Sports Mole:“This is everywhere he goes.
