I firmly believe in hard work and I know that if I fail, it will be because I didn’t work hard enough.
In my trending article, The Power of Hard Work: 4 Outstanding Effects of Hard Work That Make it The Father of Prosperity, I wrote about the reasons why hard work pays. Here, I will also show the Power of Hard Work by providing four more benefits of hard work that will make you start working hard right now.
- Hard Working People Will Like to Work With You If You Work Hard
Hard workers often love other hard workers. For this reason, your hard work will enable you to attract and make friends with hard-working individuals who would love to work with you because working with you guarantees success.
Hard workers know that success is inevitable when two or more hard workers work towards a particular goal.
- Hard Work Attracts Mentors
The successful hate mentoring lazy individuals because it’s tedious and boring to mentor an individual who is unwilling to work hard. They, therefore, love mentoring people who show their willingness to work tirelessly towards their goals.
Many successful individuals often want other people to succeed, and they love providing direction and guidance to those working extra-hard to achieve their goals. They hate seeing hard workers make the mistakes they made.
- Hard Work Attracts Respect
Although many people want to work hard, only a few people work hard because most people fall for distractions. For this reason, people will respect you when you work hard because you will be doing something others can’t.
People know that hard work requires self-discipline, a strong determination, intense focus, and zeal. Therefore, they will also respect you because they will see all these qualities in you.
Respect is good for you because you’ll develop a strong sense of self-esteem, and you will be inspired to work harder when you feel respected.
- You Will Never Regret
Many individuals regret in their 40s when they realize that their laziness is responsible for their unhappiness and lack of progress. Regret is one of the worst mental states to be in because you cannot go back in time and change things.
If you work hard, you will never regret because you’ll succeed. Besides this, even if you won’t succeed, you’ll receive something good from your intense effort, and you’ll be at peace with yourself because you gave your very best.
Therefore, besides building character, leading to mastery, luck, and self-confidence, hard work also results in you attracting hard workers, a mentor, and respect. Also, you will never regret because you will get something from your hard work.
I know that, just like me, you also want big things in your life. I have researched extensively on success, and I am now 100% sure that success is the result of hard work. For this reason, we must up our game and work hardest towards our goals. I know we will win if we work hardest. Trust me, we will.

5 Powerful Success Lessons We Can Learn From Benjamin Franklin
I admire Benjamin Franklin because he succeeded in many fields. He was a successful politician, author, inventor, scientist
After studying his life for a while, I realized powerful success lessons we can learn from this Great Man
‘From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books.’ – Benjamin Franklin
Many successful people believe that reading breeds success because it leads to the accumulation of knowledge useful for succeeding. Maybe Benjamin Franklin knew this because he read a lot. He loved reading so much that he read his father’s religious texts because they were the main books his father possessed. His obsession with reading forced his father, Josiah Franklin, to apprentice him to a printer. Many scholars agree that his reading habit played a great role in making him a great man.
2.Never Ever Wait For The Right Moment
If you want to do something, do it. Never wait for the universe to perfectly arrange things for you before you take action
In 1721, Benjamin Franklin’s brother founded a newspaper. Benjamin Franklin became highly interested in participating in the newspaper, but he believed his position would prevent his brother from allowing him to write. However, instead of waiting for his brother’s permission, he wrote letters and anonymously placed them in his brother’s print shop. People liked the letters so much that they wanted to know him.
Benjamin Franklin never waited for the right moment. He took action when he had an idea and his audacity paid off.
3.Associate With People With Similar Interests
You can progress quickly if you associate with people with similar interests because these folks will help you learn a lot about your field.
Benjamin Franklin knew this principle because he formed an association of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs when he was 21 years old. The association enabled Benjamin to become a better artist and businessman as its members regularly discussed
4.Failure is Inevitable
All successful people including Benjamin Franklin failed on their way to success. Despite becoming one of America’s founding fathers, some of Benjamin Franklin’s political proposals were ignored. Furthermore, despite becoming a well-known author, some of his publications failed.
Benjamin Franklin understood that failure is part of success, and he continued writing and formulating more political proposals. He eventually became a successful politician and author.
5.Work, Work and Work
It’s said that Benjamin Franklin was obsessed with work. His biography reveals how he woke up early to work long hours. Besides this, some of his famous quotes such as ‘laziness makes things difficult, and hard work makes things easier’ proved he believed in a strong work-ethic.
Benjamin Franklin knew that his strong work-ethic played a huge role in making him succeed. In his famous essay, The Way to Wealth, he wrote, ‘If You Are Hardworking, You Will Never Starve.’
Just like other successful folks, Franklin was an ordinary individual who adopted the features of successful people. We can also adopt these features to guarantee a marvelous future.

5 Unbelievable Factors That Make People Work Extremely Hard
Mentors, a strong purpose, and motivational stuff are some of the main factors that have made people work extremely hard. However, there are also unique but not necessarily positive factors that have made people work extremely hard towards their goals. Guess you are ready to know them.
Here are they:
- The Desire to Prove People Wrong
Many people have worked extremely hard towards their goals because they wanted to prove the naysayers wrong. These folks wanted to show the people who doubted them that they can achieve greatness.
An example is Arnold Schwarzenegger. This guy worked extremely hard in his acting career because he wanted to prove wrong the people who told him that he won’t be a successful actor since he had a German accent, and a body that was too big for acting.
Even though I have discouraged competition in my previous posts, I believe that it sometimes makes people work extremely hard. Many bloggers, musicians, and business owners have worked extremely hard because of the fierce competition in their niches. These folks knew that they would fail to secure a sizeable market share if their competitors outworked them.
For this reason, it’s inarguable that competition can force you to work harder whether you like it or not because if you don’t work hard when facing stiff competition, your competitors will become better than you and throw you out of the game.
A large percentage of successful people succeeded because they had faith in their dreams. Faith made them completely sure that they will achieve their dreams if they worked harder, and therefore, it motivated them to work hardest towards their goals.
Recently, I realized that people who believe in the achievement of their dreams often work harder than those who doubt. Doubt drains your energy because it demotivates you, while faith pumps energy in you and motivates you to push yourself harder because you firmly know that success will come if you toil.
People also work harder towards their goals if they believe that achieving them will eliminate some sort of pain. For instance, the pain of living in poverty motivated Eminem to work extremely hard towards a better life. In some of his songs, the rapper reveals how the pain he felt when he realized that his 9-5 salary could not sustain his family forced him to work very hard in music.
All the pain inside amplified by the fact that I can’t get by with my 9-5, and I can’t provide the right type of life for my family – Eminem, Lose Yourself
- The Need to Use Success As Revenge
“Success is the best revenge to pay you back.” – Eminem, Where I’m At.
I know people who are working so hard because they experienced rejection. These folks believe that working harder will make them meet success and make the people who rejected them regret.
Besides faith, the above factors show that you can use negative states of mind to push yourself harder. The main reason we are always encouraged to use positive factors to push ourselves harder is because most of the time, factors such as pain, competition, the need to revenge and prove people wrong, work against us.
What other unique factors do you know that can make people work harder?
