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.

“Self-Trust Is The First Secret Of Success.”

“Self-trust is the first secret of success.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson

We cannot succeed if we do not believe in ourselves. It is important to trust ourselves if we are to get anything done in life. If you do not trust yourself. who is going to trust you?

If you are to succeed, you have to trust yourself. You have to believe in yourself. You have to trust yourself from the inside out. Trusting yourself starts from within. If you do not trust yourself within, you cannot trust yourself without.

Trusting yourself means being who you are created to be. Nothing less. In his book, The Power of You: How to Live Your Authentic, Joy-Filled Life Now! Chris Michaels writes, “There is never going to be another you, ever! God made just one. Nobody talks like you. Nobody thinks as you do. No one can love the way you can love. You’re an original piece of work, created by a master artist.”

Believe in yourself that you can get anything done. It starts in your mind. Self-trust starts in your mind. If you trust yourself in your mind, you will trust your power to get things done.

Don’t wait for people to trust you. They are not going to trust you. You are going to trust yourself first, then they will join you. You are unique for a reason- to be YOU. According to Dr. Joseph Murphy, “The only obstacle to your success and achievement is your own thought or mental image.”

If you want success, try to have a positive image of yourself in your mind. Whatever you give to your mind to keep for you, you will get back. If you want to get back a positive image of yourself, then give your mind a positive image to keep for you.

If there is no self-trust image in your mind, you will find it hard to trust yourself. And if you don’t trust yourself, you cannot really get anything done in life.

Self-trust is self-belief. Trust yourself, and people will trust you.
