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.

Who Do You Want In Your Life?

“Truth springs from argument among friends.”-

David Hume

Who do you really want in your life? Who are you spending your time with? We love our friends.But the real question is: “Are we growing or dying?”

We cannot grow if we don’t have the right people in our lives. We can’t do it all. We need people to help us succeed. We need the right people in our lives to help us grow. But we can’t find the right people if we keep hanging out with the wrong people. We have to make room for the right people to come into our lives. And we also have to make room for the wrong people to live us alone. Yes, alone.

Sometimes we find it difficult to tell people what we want. But, look, if you don’t have the courage to tell people what you want, they will give you what you don’t want. In other words, they will give you the wrong things. When you ask, will you get. If you don’t ask, you won’t get anything. It is better to ask for what you want and need than to keep quiet.

If you want to grow in your life, you need the right people to help you grow and succeed in your life. You don’t need people who will come into your life and waste your precious time. Do not let that happen to you. You need to surround yourself with people who are ready and willing to invest in you. Surround yourself with people who are praying for you to grow, who are ready to tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. Surround yourself with people who are saying positive things about you and your dreams.

Your personal growth is in your hands. But you can’t grow if you don’t have the courage to remove the things that are holding you back. You can’t move forward if you keep moving with the wrong people. You must let them go. Learn how to let go. You don’t need them in your life. You need to grow.

If you are not growing in your life, it is time to check who your friends are. It is time to check how you are spending your time. If you are wasting your time with the wrong people, it is time to leave them alone. It is time to focus on your dreams. Because you can’t get to your destination without the right people in your life. You need them. They are out there. They are those who will not judge or criticize your dreams. Instead they will do everything to help you succeed in your life. They will motivate you. They will inspire you. They will give you the time you need to think and grow. They are open to answering your questions. They will Never discourage you. They will be with you all the way to the end.

You must know who you really want in your life. If you don’t know, you can’t attract them.
