What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you see this title?
Food? Well it is beyond food.
In my previous post we talked about passion, something you’re hungry for, something that drives you, it keeps you awake all night when others are sleeping.
First of, you’ll get tired at some point,you need to know you might even think you hate what you do and that’s where staying hungry comes in.
This is keeping the same energy you had from the start and not giving up on what drives you.
How to stay hungry
#1- remind yourself why you do what you do( your strong why)
It is important to know why you had this drive from the start, it could be anything, it could be for personal reasons, or to help others you need to search deep and note why you started the journey in the first place.
#2- The benefits
In anything good we do remember there are gains, the positive sides are very important and they could be
– monetary gains
– personal gains and so on
For instance, blogging drives me – I mean sharing my passion and helping others find theirs is a major benefit for me, I remember I sometimes choose to abandon the drive to post daily, I even take multiple breaks but then again i remember the major benefit and here I am doing what I love.
#3- source of inspiration/motivation:
What inspired you?
I mean sometimes we need inspiration, motivation to keep pushing, it could be a person(s), music, meditation, it could be anything and it could be God.
If you don’t have any, find one!
#4– Are there people looking up to you?
If there are people looking up to you, you cant give up now!
You need to push through, use the points above and move on. You should stand as a leader and lead them right.
#5- personal growth
Remind yourself that the process includes growth in all aspect of life.
We grow daily and the process of finding what drives you, almost giving up and then getting back on your feet indicates growth and strength.
Take for instance; The hunger for God
one needs to stay hungry, read his word, communicate with him (pray), worship with all their heart. Mostly during these times! Else loose all connection with him.
Always stay hungry, so you don’t loose it all
