The simple truths about hard work:


Sporting athletes or profitable business owners, if you could ask each of them what they attribute their success to, what do you think their answer would be?

Would it be talent, skill, maybe capitalising on their opportunities, or would it be something else? Something that has shone through in everything that they have done and been a deciding factor in what they have achieved.

9 out of 10 times their answer would be hard work.    

They worked hard in developing their talents, worked hard at sharpening their skills and worked hard to be in the position where they could take advantage of their opportunities.

Sounds simple doesn’t it? If you want to be successful, all you need to do is work hard. But that is exactly what it takes to succeed.

4 facts about working hard:

1: It’s not going to be easy

It’ll take time, effort and dedication. Remember, what you put in is what you get out, so put 200% into everything you do.

2: Be patient

Don’t get disheartened if the results and success you’re looking for don’t happen overnight. Be patient and your hard work will pay off.

Things often take time to change and the people around you will slowly start to notice the change in your work ethic.

3: Consistency is the key

Work hard at everything! Not just what you enjoy or are good at already, but more importantly the things you don’t enjoy and the things you are not so good at. 

This is how you really ignite change, when your weak points become your strengths through hard work.

4: Remember to take time out

When you can, take some time to sit back and relax. This is just as important as working hard. Don’t see it as “slacking off”, but rather as recharging and getting ready to work even harder when the opportunity arises.

If you start to burn yourself out, it’ll be even harder to motivate yourself to go that extra mile when you need to.
