Hard work is the most important key to success. Without being willing to work hard and put everything into a venture, business success is nearly impossible. No inspiring business leader got to where they are without a willingness to work hard and put everything into their business.
Based in Mumbai, Aditya says I think hard work definitely pays off. Pretty much anyone who has accomplished anything has had to work hard to achieve their goal. There are plenty of examples that’s for sure.
With that being said, I think working smart is just as important as working hard. It’s as simple as it sounds. Watch and learn from those who’ve done it before you. See what is working for them. More than likely they learned from someone else as well. While there is something to be said about learning from our own mistakes, why not save some frustration and time by implementing tried and true habits, routines and ideas?
Imagine you are on your own in the wild. You need to work. You need to hunt for food, get water, explore your terrain, and build a home. You might need to find tribe friends. The same is true in spirit to the modern economy. The end is you work less, and it shows in your own words. The poor work ethic shows in how you see life. It also shows in how you treat others, and the conditions of life you expect from them. It is especially intolerable if you do little work, and expect high. You would better be served in conditions near poverty, and help from the government. It means in the tribal sense, you are not strong enough to survive in the wild. You need help from your tribe friends. You should always work hard, even if it is the most basic job.
Some days we feel like a hundred percent—ready to take over the world, and other days we don’t even feel like getting out of bed.
If you’re one of the many who feels exactly like this, don’t worry, being a hard worker doesn’t come naturally. It takes time to develop certain qualities and characteristics to become one. It is through consistency, commitment, effort, and perseverance that you can fully mature into becoming a hard worker and making full use of your potential.
I think the best example of this, is the story of Henry Ford. This man has such an inspiring story. It really shows you that no work can beat hard work. Nobody believed in him and the things he asked for were ‘crazy’ things which could ‘not’ be done. He kept on hammering on it, that it could and must be done. In the end, his will and hard work paid off big time.
Benefits of Hard Work:-
Hard work is a confidence builder.
Another key component of success is confidence. After all, you need to believe in yourself and your ability to achieve your goals. Everyone will experience setbacks along the way, and what is most important is the ability to push through the tough times and learn from the experience.
Hard Work Builds Character
We’re living in the midst of a character crisis. If we can’t have something in 5 minutes we don’t want it. And if getting it is hard, forget it! But hard work builds character. You learn discipline. You learn to focus. You learn to manage your time and your resources. You learn to ignore the critics who are telling you it can’t be done. Don’t be a quitter. Quitting is easy. Giving up is easy! But EASY never builds character. Strong character is built the same way strong muscles are build
Hard work is motivating
Another hidden benefit of hard work is increased motivation and inspiration. The satisfaction you’ll feel your accomplishments will leave you feeling a new sense of energy and focus for your next project or goal
Success doesn’t happen overnight. And the most successful individuals are those who are willing to put in a productive day’s work before they even receive success. Sometimes, hard work does pay off; sometimes, it doesn’t. Another saying that I like is: “An idea without a plan is just a wish.” Before you aim a bunch of hard work at an idea, you need a reasonable plan for getting where you want to go. Plan carefully and then do the hard work. That should get you a payoff.
Your hard work will never let you fail in life. Maybe you won’t see the results immediately, but sooner or later, someday it’ll all be worth it. You will be proud of yourself for working this hard and achieving it by not relying on luck but actually striving hard for it.When in doubt, always remember this quote by Colin Powell, “A dream doesn’t become a reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.”
