I am confused about the uses of the word hustle. According to the dictionary, to hustle means a lot of negative things, like:
force (someone) to move hurriedly or unceremoniously in a specified direction.
obtain by forceful action or persuasion.
coerce or pressure someone into doing or choosing something
obtain by illicit action; swindle; cheat.
However, it is used in positive inspirational quotes, such as:
“Good things happen to those who hustle.” - Anaïs Nin
"What you lack in talent can be made up with desire, hustle and giving 110 percent all the time." - Don Zimmer
“Good things come to those who wait, but only the things left over by those who hustle.” – Abraham Lincoln
Why are the dictionary definitions so negative? There is not a single positive mention of the word in there, isn't that deflecting the reality?
