15 quotes that will inspire you to hustle the right way
With the rise of social media engagements, 'hustle culture' has become a trend for some time now. Young people are hustling hard to fulfil their professional aspirations. The 'Gen Z' cares more about doing passion-driven work — living the philosophy of doing what you love and never work a day — than just having a secure job.
However, no path to success is straight, and hustling for long can lead to feeling burnt out. At times, it can also come in the way of personal relationships.
Here are a few quotes to help you not lose sight of your ambition, and hustle further in the right way:
