Serious #6 HARD WORK - KEY TO SUCCESS
HARD WORK – KEY TO SUCCESS
In this world full of different kinds of people, there are ambitious people and then there are people with ambitions but are lazy. In this same world, “hard work is the key to success” is a very well known statement, and often also frowned upon by school going children like me. But when the time comes, we realise that the statement is very relevant in our day to day life.
Parents, teachers, as well as other well wishers guide a child to be hard working. Although a bit of luck never hurts anyone, hard work can make up for lucks’ lack in quantity.
In fact, if luck was to be considered as a major factor that leads up to success, everyone would just end up not working at all – waiting for their luck to shine up and to hit a pot of gold without doing anything, without exerting themselves and working hard!
Fortunately, this didn’t happen.
People like the Wright brothers and Thomas Edison literally changed the world because of their hard work. If they hadn’t worked hard, worked day in and day out, our lives without air transport and bulbs would have been very different.
Yes, things like whether we are ambidextrous or not are not in our hands, but a lot of how we lead our lives is.
I would like to conclude by saying that a person gets greater satisfaction when she/he completes a task on their own, by working hard. That feeling of satisfaction is what makes us strive for more and thus, achieve a lot more than what we ever would have by being lazy.
