The Silent Hustle!


By Pooja Marwah

Hard work, consistency and dedication are the key to success. This is a statement we acknowledge and some of us live by. But to put in the work requires a certain amount of struggle or hustle as it is termed today. And, strangely enough, I met a so called accomplished person of the medical fraternity who actually had the gumption to say that she looks down on people who struggle in their forties!

This blog is actually an answer to her unintelligent mindset and character.

Not all hustle is loud and you need to know that. We live in a world where hustle is often equated with constant hustle-and-bustle, loud success stories, and glamorous achievements. But not all hustle is noisy. Some of you are quietly grinding, working tirelessly for your families and your future.

Picture this – it’s a quiet afternoon, and you are at your kitchen table, laptop open, a cup of coffee by your side. Outside, the world is buzzing with activities and social media influencers flaunting their latest accomplishments. Meanwhile, you are focused on something bigger, something that adds meaning to you —your family’s well-being and your future.

Your hustle doesn’t involve flashy social media posts or receiving accolades from strangers. Rather, it is all about putting in the hours, day in and day out, to create a stable and secure life. It’s about making sacrifices and stepping out of your comfort zone to build a better future, one small step at a time.

Sure, there are times when it feels challenging. Balancing work, family and personal goals can be overwhelming. But the rewards go beyond financial gain or social recognition. It’s about the deep satisfaction that comes from knowing that you are doing everything you can to support your dreams and aspirations.

The beauty of the silent hustle is that it often goes unnoticed. It’s not about seeking applause or constant validation. Instead, it’s about the quiet determination to keep pushing forward, even when the going gets tough. It’s about embracing the process and finding joy in the journey, knowing that every step brings you closer to the life you envision.

The silent hustlers among us may not have the largest following on social media or the loudest voices in the room, but that doesn’t diminish the importance of our endeavours. We are the ones who show up consistently, even when no one is watching. We understand that true success isn’t measured solely by external markers but by the positive impact we have on the lives of those we hold dear.

So, if you’re a silent hustler, I want you to know that your efforts matter. That you are seen!  Your dedication, perseverance, and unwavering commitment to yourself and your future are what truly count. Keep pushing forward even when it feels like nobody is paying attention. Remember, the quietest hustles often have the most profound impact.

In a world obsessed with overnight success and viral moments, find reason to celebrate the silent hustler in you. You may not have the loudest voice, but your actions speak volumes. In the end, all I do want you to believe in is the fact that YOU ARE HEARD, even if YOU are not SEEN.
