Every man’s life on this life has a purpose. We work throughout our lives to fullfill that purpose and achieve a greater goal. Without aim a human’s life is useless. It’s like a ship with no destination and nowhere to reach.
To achieve this aim one has to work for it throughout his life. Not work just work, but hard work. Hard work is doing something with full concentration and labour. There should be a passion to work for it.
There are many examples from the pages of history how great men have achieved huge successes just my hard work and determination. So much so was their metal grit in achieving something that nothing mattered to them although how much may be the criticism, opposition and controversies they had to face. But they remained aloof and continued with their aim but one day their innovations changed the face of the world.
Thinking of hard work we come across the following questions in mind
- Why is hard work important?
- What is the right time for doing hard work?
- How should i know that i am working hard?
- Does hard work always payoff?
- What if i don’t get the results even after working hard?
- What happens to the person who doesn’t work hard?
Solving the questions systematically we come across the following conclusions
Why is hard work important?
Man’s primary aim in life is to survive. Hard work is like a medium through which we can reach our aim. Without hard work we cannot reach at our destination.
And without destination means a jobless man, hence you cannot survive. Nowadays competition is such that you have to be specialist in your field. And to be a specialist we have to work hard.
What is the right time for doing hard work?
In true sense the right time is ‘now’. Actually there is no perfect time for doing some hard work. The truck driver and conductor will be there.
They’ll guide the lorry and trucks. So you can see there is no such time for doing hard work. The more you do it the better it is. So hard work can be done at anything and anywhere, but where it is done. It should be done with full concentration and energy. Half hearted approach is never a good solution. It will degrade the quality of work.
How should i know that i am working hard?
When you pay your hundred percent attentions to get something done. Remember at that time hard work is getting done. When you work hard nobody needs to tell you that.
You will know by yourself. You’ll feel exhausted. And a certain passion doing better than what you are doing now will take the better of you. And again you’ll work double to give a better performance. It is all about passion. Your zeal to deliver the finest quality of work.
Does hard work always pay off?
Sometimes there are times we will not get back the fruits of our labour. But we have to always remember hard work always pays off. Maybe not immediately, but it surely does in the long run.
If you learn something as a hobby or some special arts, maybe at that time it won’t benefit you in any way. But who knows that one day it might become your greatest skill in your career or might help you to get out of difficult situations.
Hence we can see hard work never goes wasted. So we should never refrain from doing hard work thinking that it will never benefit us in any way.
What if i don’t get the results even after working hard?
There are times when you’ll see that even after working hard and being sure of success you won’t the results of you work. It is a common experience for us. There are times when we have made an assignment working hard day and night. But even after that somebody else’s assignment gets better attention and all the credit.
Don’t be disheartened. It is actually an opportunity for you to better yourself, to try harder. It is an opportunity for you to do even better than you. Hence keep trying and one day you will succeed for sure.
“Failures are stepping stones of success”
What happens to the person who doesn’t work hard?
He fails miserably. Both in his work and in his life. He will never know the joy that one feels when one’s hard work pays off. His life will be filled with failures and losses. He will start hating himself that he cannot do anything without a fail. Hence it is better not to have such a life.
He will lead a lazy life for sure. But he will also repent for that. Later in life when he will see his friends and peers doing something in life, that they are way ahead of him and that they are achieving success, at that time hell feel like a loser. At that time hell repent for the time he wasted and the time that he is never getting back. There is no way to make up for that. No way to mend.
All of us are familiar with the famous story of the lazy sons. There was a father who was growing old. He had three sons. All of them were lazy and this was his main cause of worry. One day he called all his sons and told them that he had hidden a bucket of gold somewhere in his field.
The three sons dug up the fields in a day to find the gold but they didn’t find it anywhere. Disappointed they came back and asked their father about it. The father laughed and told the sons to sow some seeds in the field and water them regularly.
They did the same. Soon golden ears of corn came out and they had a plentiful harvest. The sons got a lot of money by selling the crops. Now they understood what their father meant by ‘hidden gold’.
So finally their hard work paid off. This is what we should follow in life. Working hard and tasting the sweetness of success. Nothing is the world is sweeter than that.
