Introduction: Hard work means having a healthy body, a strong mind, willpower, and a positive attitude towards things. It is the most important key to success. Achievements without hard work are impossible. An idle person can never gain anything if they sit and wait for a better opportunity to come. The person who is working hard is able to gain success and happiness in life. Nothing is easy to be achieved in life without doing any hard work.
The Reason Why Hard Work Is The Key To Success: The constant vigilance and preparedness to work is the price we have to pay for success in life. Work is a privilege and a pleasure, the idleness is a luxury that no one can afford. Man is born to work and prosper in life. He like steel shines in use and rusts in rest. The work is worship. The man of action acts in the living present. There is no tomorrow for him. He makes the best of the time. Life is full of strife. It is the action, activity of law of nature. A life of idleness is a life of shame and disgrace. Idle men are intruders on society. We are endowed with brain and limbs, which are meant to be properly exercised. The failure in life is very often due to idleness. The Industry is the key to success, Industry makes and idleness mars a nation.
It’s the price we pay for what we are 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 we believe in, we are understanding its true value. We begin to respect the work itself, to build some good qualities along the way, and to learn important life lessons during it.
Hard work helps you build discipline.
In the beginning of our journey, we aren’t ready to handle the success and all the responsibilities that come together with it. But earning it with sweat and sacrifices prepares us 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 our life as well no matter if it is at work-related, in college-related or our 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 anything 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 our journey to success. It makes us who we have to turn into in order to live a better life that’s awaiting for us.
It teaches us values.
We learn to persevere, to find ways to appreciate all we 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 we have or don’t have in our life instead.
Hard work gives us a purpose, it helps us overcome laziness, procrastination, our doubts, fear of failure, insecurities, and our bad habits.
We make our 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 us open and the more life gives us chances to get closer to our vision. Grabbing opportunities and making the most of them is part of working hard. And it’s the real face of luck.
It gives us 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, we are building momentum and making sure our journey continues. Working on our goal itself is the motivation we need to keep moving forward and say no to distractions from daily life.
Seeing results makes us feel accomplished, grateful and truly satisfied with what we are doing. That makes the whole process enjoyable and we find the strength to persevere.
Greatness can be achieved by great labor only. What a man earns by the sweat of his brow gives him a greater degree of satisfaction than what he gets by a stroke of fortune. The man wishes to have many things in their life. These latter things acquired by hard toil are much than those who get by accident. When a man earns by dint of toil; he enjoys a pleasurable sensation which is equivalent to the joy of having won a victory. Of this pleasurable sensation, the man who has been born with a silver spoon in his mouth knows nothing. A self-made man is certainly happier and more esteemed than the man who owes his fortune to the accident of his birth.
Conclusion: Success is like a seed that needs a balanced proportion of all the elements of life. And no one can achieve success in a day they have to go through and face different conditions in life for being successful. 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 we have worked on the right thing the one which will get us closer to our goal.
