There Is No Substitute For Hard Work

Thomas Edison said, “There is no substitute for hard work.” Is he right or wrong? What do you think?

You have what it takes to succeed in your life. But you can’t do that without hard work. You must work really hard if you are to succeed. You have it. You can do it.

Hard work means working smart. It means knowing what you are pursuing. It means self- leadership. It means knowing who to contact when you need help. It means knowing when to restart when things are not working according to your plans. It means focus.

On the contrary, hard work does not mean you should break your back. It does not mean you should spend your time pursuing worthless goals. It does not wasting your time.

Don’t doubt yourself. Believe in yourself. Whatever you want to achieve in life, you must work hard to get it. It is not going to be easy. It is going to be really hard. But if you can hang in there, you can win.

Sometimes when things are really going tough for us, that is when we consider quitting our dreams. Do not do that. When things are tough, that is when you should work really hard to achieve your dreams. Don’t talk yourself out. Don’t allow people to talk you out of your dreams.

James Allen said, “The price of life is effort.” No matter how tough your situation may be, don’t give up. Keep doing what you are doing. If you don’t abandon your dreams, you will get there. But if you don’t pursue your dreams, you will get somewhere, but not at your real destination.

Why You Should Not Give Up Your Dreams

Nothing in life is easy. It is scary to start new things, to dream new dreams, to love, or to do something new. It is not easy, and it will never be easy. That doesn’t mean you should quit your dreams. It doesn’t mean you should give up on yourself. It means you should work harder to make your dreams happen.

Your dream is your dream. You must do something to keep it alive. You must do something to make it a reality. Nothing happens by accident. It happens when you do something. That is true for your dreams. If you want your dreams to come true, you must do something about them. You must face your fears. You must leave your comfort zone. You must think new thoughts. You must meet new people who can help you succeed. If not, it is not going to happen.

No matter what, don’t give up. As Thomas Edison famously said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” It is easier to give up than to continue fighting for you want. You want your dreams, right? You must fight to make it happen. Dream alone won’t make it happen, work does.
