How can you achieve success at work?

Hard work

You can lose with hard work, but you cannot win without it. If you can find a way to become successful without hard work and a strong work ethic, I would love to learn it from you. Here is what the legendary basket player Larry Bird, the great American author Napoleon Hill who wrote one of my favorite books of all time “Think and Grow Rich,” and Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States of America think about hard work:

  • I have got a theory that if you give 100 percent all of the time, somehow things will work out in the end. (Larry Bird)
  • Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit. (Napoleon Hill)
  • Things may come to those who wait. But only the things left by those who hustle. (Abraham Lincoln)

Here is my advice to you about hard work:

  1. Choose the right job:
    You cannot work hard unless you are passionate about your job and care about fulfilling your key job responsibilities. Somebody once said, “chose the job you like, you never have to work again.”
  2. Set up a disciplined process:
    Hard work is even harder without a disciplined plan. The process and plan that work for others might not work for you. You should try to establish some type of work routine that is compatible with your personality.
  3. Make the right choice:
    Hard work is hard. You must ask yourself whether you are willing to give 100% to become successful. Then, make the right choice, and stick to your decision.
