Motivation is a powerful, yet tricky beast. Sometimes it is really easy to get motivated, and you find yourself wrapped up in a whirlwind of excitement. Other times, it is nearly impossible to figure out how to motivate yourself and you’re trapped in a death spiral of procrastination.
One word that is used a lot today among hustlers and entrepreneurs is the idea of ‘grinding’. We use the phrase to describe an intense amount of time working hard at something, or putting in the work long after what is expected. However, what many people don’t realize is that there are two different types of ‘grinders’ and that one, a life grinder, is much more effective for completing long term goals.
Motivational Youtube sensation Eric Thomas, briefly mentions the two types of Grinders in his weekly series Thank God its Monday (TGIM). However, the descriptions of both of these are summarized below.
Goal Grinders, put their nose to the ground until they lose those 10 pounds, or make the grade, or whatever label they have put on themselves. However, they give up after accomplishing said goal. They revert back to who they were before. It becomes a net loss of accomplishment. According to ET, they ‘lie about the grind’.
Life Grinders, keep on grinding after they meet their goal. For example, after they run a marathon the first time, they keep on running marathons. Life Grinders understand that goals are only milestones towards excellence, so they keep going. They truly never give up in their lifetime. They make success a habit. They are always gaining and learning from their past; whether it be success or failure.
