The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.
- Oprah Winfrey
Hard work — yet another dirty word.
Hard Work Defined
My definition of hard work is that which challenges you.
Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted
The best shortcut to success is hardwork. Yes, nothing can get you closer to success than good old hard work. If a wish or desire is your starting point and success your destination then hard work is the road you must take. Though there might be many roads to success but hard work is one of the best and oldest routes known to man. Though we know hard work is necessary and accept the fact that success takes long hours of work and struggle many of us do not put it into practice. It is not that we lack talents or skills, it is because most of us are just plain lazy. We know what it takes to succeed but we are unwilling to put the effort. We expect and want success but we seldom put in the effort.
Do not let this happen to you, any success big or small requires hard work and effort from your side. Expecting success without any effort is like putting the cart before the horse and wanting to go from one place to another. It is foolish. Do not spend all your time in wishful thinking, have a strong desire, a big dream and devote time to turn that dream into a reality. Dreams become tangible when effort is put to achieve them.
Hard work did not kill anybody; it only brought good results, success and happiness, so why not give it a try?
