E146 – 146: Breaking Up with the Hustle Mentality and Finding Peace


Are you feeling completely burnt out? Do you keep pushing through, thinking that life will be smooth sailing as soon as you reach this goal? Do you feel like you are pushing yourself so much that you are missing out on what is going on around you? In today’s world, it’s hard not to. However, regardless of how it may seem, “hustling” is not the secret to success. In today’s episode, Rachel and Erin talk about the importance of hustling less and learning how to be more present in your day-to-day life.

The girls chat more about:

  • How pride seems to be attached to hustle (and how it is affecting our mental, emotional, and physical well-being)
  • How slowing down can actually give you more clarity and focused energy to be productive
  • How you are the only one in charge of how you spend your time (which means that it’s ok to give yourself some grace and take a break)
  • How you’ve only got this one life to live – so make sure your peace happiness is a priority

  • “It made me realize how often we don’t stop and smell the roses and actually enjoy life. And enjoy where we are in the moment.” – Erin
  • “It’s like putting that filter over our lives. Like we are accomplishing all these things on the outside and it looks good. But inside it’s crumbling in some areas.” – Erin
  • “I always feel on. And if I’m not producing – I feel like it was a waste of time and a waste of day. So I really had to challenge where this came from. Why do I have to believe that I have to be producing something?” – Rachel
  • “Everything is opposing. We have pain and we have pleasure. We have happy, we have sad. So why can’t we experience more of the joy and the ease and the flow of your business than always feeling like you have to grind as if that’s like the badge of honor.” – Rachel
