“When you live for a strong purpose, then hard
work isn’t an option. It’s a necessity.”
This statement by Pavlina, one of the most successful personal development bloggers on Internet, sums up the whole idea behind hard work. The quote stands to be quite significant, especially if we see today’s scenario. The youngsters of today’s life lead their life with big dreams in their eyes. But the problem with these big dreams is that they (youth) want to fulfill their dreams in the shortest span of time. They want success not through hard work but by escaping that hard work and taking a shortcut. However to achieve those big dreams, hard work is not just an option but necessity. This is because success can never be achieved through shortcuts and incase, if one achieves success using shortcuts, such success is never long lasting.
Many of the youngsters today do not believe on hard work and always look out for shortcuts for success. For example, in the past some cases had come up where some students had got admission in some medical college by buying seats for themselves for lakhs and lakhs of rupees. If you think deeply, what is the use of having such success? Firstly, you make your parents’ loose lakhs of rupees in order to have something of which you are completely undeserving. Secondly, in order to have such “fake” success, you loose very precious attributes of yours and they are self respect and satisfaction. You loose self-respect because of the guilt of doing something immoral and illegal and you do not get satisfaction because it’s easy to buy a seat in a college but not easy to cope up with the studies and bring out results.
Thus, the youth of today should stop looking out for other ways of success as such success has never been and will never be fruitful to anybody. There is a need for you to understand the importance of hard work which is the key to success. One thing that you must always keep in mind is that hard work never goes waste. Sooner or a little later, you achieve success with hard work and that success is everlasting. This is because your hard work makes you an expert in that particular field and then there is no one who can defeat you in your field.
Today, with the lot of competition in the field of education, it is quite relevant for you to give your best in whatever you do. There are many students who run away from doing hard work and think of becoming successful, renowned personalities one day. But you should always remember that whether it is Shahrukh Khan or Sachin Tendulkar or Ratan Tata, they all are there on the top of the world today, purely on the basis of their hard work. A lot of compromises and sacrifices are needed to be done to achieve any kind of success. But the success that you experience after such hard work is full of happiness, satisfaction and respect. Moreover, such success will remain with you for your lifetime.
To conclude, certainly, hard work is the key to success. This is because hard work makes you an expert of your field and it becomes very difficult for the other person to defeat you. Also, hard work never goes waste and everything in this world becomes easy to achieve if you do hard work. Most importantly, all the great personalities of the world are today what they are just because of their hard work.
