I am not an “overachiever”.

If there is one way to put me in a bad mood, it’s to degrade my hard work by calling me an “overachiever” because I’m doing something that you’re not willing to put the effort into. I have high aspirations for myself. I dream big with the hope that something small will be accomplished. I have a lot to do to get where I want to be. That’s why I get irritated when people call me an overachiever, hurling the word in my face like it’s supposed to make me feel bad for getting a lot done in one day.

I’ve never been the smartest person on the room. I pretend to know what I’m doing most of the time because I don’t want people to know how confused I really am. But when I find something that I want and something I’m good at I throw myself at it and put my all into it. I set goals and reach for those goals, even though I tend to fall short of them. Don’t demean me, my business, or my hard work by calling me an overachiever. My business is all I have. I don’t have a day job to make ends meet. This IS my day job and if I don’t work hard I don’t make money. That’s all there is to it.

So, in closing, when you see someone working their hustle like their life depends on it, don’t call them an overachiever when you see them doing things you’re too afraid to do. Their life might ACTUALLY depend on it.
