Life is full of twists and turns .Everyone has to struggle here in this world to overcome every obstacle in the way to success. For this hard work is necessary. Without working hard and just by sitting idle it will be hard for one to get success. Since from childhood and till now I always remember the sentence that my parents used to tell me.
TO be a better person in life and to get success you have to work hard, the result of hard work is always fruitful, so you have to work hard.
Today’s world is a competitive world. Everyone here wants to be famous and wants success in his life. Whether he may be a successful boxer, sportsman, actor or writer his present position is only due to hard work.
My dear audience!
Let’s consider the people who win gold medals in THE Olympic Games, Nobel Prize in different fields of knowledge. It is only because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with it. Just by watching television and sitting idle if you are saying that can bend down success in your knee means you are wrong. Yes perhaps you have got success sometimes because of your luck but it is not true always. Saying that I am a lucky person success automatically comes ….these are the only words of saying, reality is different.
There is a well known proverb “NO pain, NO gain”
Hard work never goes wasted. Although it may be later or sooner success comes to your feet. we can have a look towards the life of great people in the world like Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Iqbal, Mahatma Gandhi ,Napoleon , Shakespeare ,Albert Einstein, Newton, they all had struggled hard throughout their life .They had made the right use of every second and finally got their destination.
“One percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration”—Edison’s definition of genius has often been quoted to define success as well. Even before Edison, the rigors of success were described by painter Michelangelo thus: “If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem wonderful at all.”
Achieving success is almost like finding God the destination is the same, but the roads are as varied as the seekers. All you need to do is choose your path…
But what is success?
Success may be described as the realization of an aim and for the realization of any aim hard work is essential. Hard work helps us to develop our potential to the maximum and strive for excellence in any field.
Hard work makes us better prepared to face adverse situations. Hard work helps an athlete to persevere in a race and win it; it helps an average student to become extraordinary, it helps to transform destinies.
Success is basically about how you can turn adverse situations in your favor.
So, focus your energies in a concentrated manner on your goal and then start perspiring for it. The choice of the goal and the effort taken in reaching it are complementary: if you want to achieve something for the love of it, and not because it is the done thing, no amount of hard work would tire you.
As De Bono puts it: “Successful people do often enjoy their work that it does not seem like work.” According to a recent survey, success earned through hard work was the foremost factor responsible for a contented life.
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
Behind every human effort lies a hope for success. So keen is his desire for success that he fails to see any value in failures. But one must remember that failures are the pillars of success. They provide us an opportunity to realize our shortcomings so that we can constantly strive to improve ourselves, because,
“Struggle is the key to Success”.
If you do a quick research on the keys to success, you’ll find plenty of resources.
Some people will call them the only secrets to success you need to know, while others will refer to this information as principles, elements, steps, factors, or else.
But the truth is there’s only one thing you can’t go without if you want to succeed in any area of life, and that’s hard work.
There’s more behind that, though.
We’re talking about focused and consistent work. That means saying no to distractions for a long time, not wanting fast results but being patient and believing in the process, changing your approach and strategies and trying new things while sticking to your initial vision and always keeping it in mind.
Success doesn’t happen by chance. It takes strategic actions in the right direction to get there.
It doesn’t happen overnight either. There are more failures during the journey than most people allow themselves to admit, it’s just that the stories about overnight success sound better.
In the end of the day, it’s all about how hard you’ve worked on the right thing – the one which will get you closer to your goal.
But to be willing to invest your precious time, energy and focus, you’ll need to truly understand exactly why hard work matters. Here are the main reasons:
The Reason Why Hard Work Is The Key To Success
1. It’s the price you pay for what you’re going to get.
If success was free, everyone would have it. But there are few successful individuals and each of them had put in enough productive work before they received anything in return.
That’s important, and it’s fair enough. While working hard on what you believe in, you’re understanding its true value.
You begin to respect the work itself, to build some good qualities along the way, and to learn important life lessons during it.
2. Hard work helps you build discipline.
In the beginning of your journey, you aren’t ready to handle the success and all the responsibilities that come together with it. But earning it with sweat and sacrifices prepares you for that. Here are some examples.
No athlete truly deserves a medal before investing years of his life into training, before getting his body ready to endure it, before building the qualities necessary to become a champion and developing the mindset of a winner, the same applies to your life as well – no matter if it is at work related, in college related or your dating life.
Successful entrepreneurs wouldn’t have been able to manage people effectively, build products people love, run a big company, organize their time well and work with big sums of money, if they hadn’t started from nothing and earned the chance to get to every next step.
Millionaires also weren’t that good at handling their money, investing wisely or networking. It took them years, trial and error, and patience to make a fortune.
So the hard work, together with the time it takes, is a must on your journey to success. It makes you who you have to turn into in order to live the better life that’s awaiting for you.
What’s more, the harder you work on your dream, the more confident you become. Those who lack self-esteem also lack determination and end up losing hope and giving up. But by investing enough energy in this daily, you start believing in yourself more, you are sure that you’ll succeed, and you don’t need support from others and no one can put you down anymore.
3. It teaches you values.
You learn to persevere, to find ways to appreciate all you have but still aim higher, to be patient, to take action instead of waiting for things to happen, to stop blaming and take responsibility for anything you have or don’t have in your life instead.
Hard work gives you a purpose, it helps you overcome laziness, procrastination, your doubts, fear of failure, insecurities, and your bad habits.
4. You make your own luck with it.
Average people spend a great deal of time waiting for things to happen. They make countless excuses in order to postpone taking action, and are distracted all the time.
People with goals, on the other hand, constantly do something and try new stuff to move forward. This way, they’re creating opportunities.
A universal law is that the more you’re focused on something and take action connected to it, the more doors you open and the more life gives you chances to get closer to your vision.
Grabbing opportunities and making the most of them is part of working hard. And it’s the real face of luck.
5. It gives you results.
The best measure for anything is progress. And there’s nothing else that brings more results on a consistent basis than hard work.
What’s more, action itself leads to more action and at any moment of the day, you’re building momentum and making sure your journey continues.
Working on your goal itself is the motivation you need to keep moving forward and say no to distractions from daily life.
Seeing results makes you feel accomplished, grateful and truly satisfied with what you’re doing. That makes the whole process enjoyable and you find the strength to persevere.
Now that you know all this, there shouldn’t be a single negative thought in your mind towards hard work. Never doubt its power and that it’s a necessity.
Instead, create your strategy, make a step-by-step plan and take the first step towards success no later than today. You won’t regret it!
