The Power of Hard work: 4 Outstanding Effects of Hard Work That Make it The Father of Prosperity

Published

on

Hard work is the ability of an individual to work more hours than the average person. Research reveals that the ordinary person works 8 – 10 hours a day, while a hard-worker works 14 – 16 hours a day.

Successful people such as Warren Buffet, Lil-Wayne, and Richard Branson, reveal that they work up to 16 hours a day. These individuals admit that their success is owed to diligence.

Today’s article provides four main effects of hard work that make it the main element for success. In simpler terms, it provides reasons why hard work pays.

Hard-work pays because –

  1. It Leads to Mastery

If you invest most of your energy and time in your career, you will definitely become a master or expert in your field. For instance, if you study and practice accounting for 16 hours every day for more than 5 years, you will inevitably become an expert in accounting.

Successful actors, musicians, footballers, businesspeople, and authors reveal that they became masters of their fields because they always spent a large percentage of their time learning and working on their skills.

Once you become a master of your field, there will be a high demand for your services, and there are high chances that you will be successful if you are highly demanded.

  1. It Leads to Luck

The harder you work, the luckier you get because luck occurs when opportunity meets with a high level of preparedness. Opportunity always knocks at everybody’s door, but it often finds most of us unprepared. Only the people who prepare themselves enough by working hard exploit opportunities, and we call them The Lucky.

In other words, many people miss luck because it looks like hard work.

  1. It Leads to Confidence in Oneself

The harder you work in a particular field, for example, music, the more you become a master, and the more you become a master, the more you start believing in your ability.

This belief makes you confident because you start realizing that you will definitely achieve your goals.

  1. It builds a good Character

Hard work makes you spend lots of hours perfecting your skills. Therefore, it makes you a good time manager because you’ll avoid wasting time. Also, it forces you to learn self-discipline, which is an essential element for success. Self-discipline is the ability to do the things you must do even when you don’t feel like doing them.

Concluding Remarks

We must embrace industry because it puts us in a position where the chances of success are high.

The 5 Major Stages You Must Go Through When Chasing Your Dreams

Published

on

Shows the difficulty involved in dream chasing

After studying the biographies of many successful folks, I realized that all of them went through the same stages of dream chasing regardless of their socio-economic status. I summarized these stages into five stages which I believe you’ll also go through if you are chasing your dreams.

Here are they:

Stage 1 – Idea

Here, you’ll give birth to a great idea that you’ll want to turn into reality. For instance, if you are an aspiring writer, you’ll want to turn your thoughts into a best-selling book, and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll discover a wonderful business idea which you’ll want to turn into a successful company.

Stage 2 – Enthusiasm

After discovering the idea, you’ll visualize the life you’ll live when you’ll achieve your dreams, and you’ll tell your friends and family about this life. You’ll then research on how you’ll turn your idea into reality, and you’ll start working enthusiastically because you’ll want to live your dream as soon as possible.

Stage 3 – Disappointment

After working for a period of 6 – 18 months, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll make little progress despite working hard. For instance, if you are an aspiring vlogger, you’ll realize that getting 10,000 subscribers is not easy, or if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll be disappointed because your business might fail to make profits.

Besides this, you’ll realize that dream chasing demands funding, and that few people are willing to support you. Primarily, you’ll realize that it might take longer to achieve your dreams. These challenges will make you want to give up.

Most people quit chasing their dreams at this stage.

Stage 4 – Perseverance

If you really want to achieve your dreams, you’ll decide to persevere. You’ll face obstacles fearlessly, and you’ll commit yourself to overcoming them. Besides, you’ll avoid everything and everyone that might prevent you from achieving your dreams. Also, rejection, failure, and naysayers won’t stop you from working hard.

You’ll also realize that only those who persevere achieve their dreams, and you’ll work like hell. Moreover, you’ll strive to make the journey enjoyable so that you don’t give up.

Most folks make their journey enjoyable by making friends with like-minded people.

Stage 5 – Success

After working for a long period without quitting, you’ll become highly skilled, and many people will love your services/products. If you are a writer, many people will be willing to buy your books, and if you are a businessman, people will be interested in your products. You’ll then use the money you’ll earn to buy whatever you want and travel wherever you want. You’ll be so fulfilled.

Conclusion

It’s easy to dream, but difficult to achieve dreams. Most people quit when they realize they’ll have to work for a long period before they achieve their dreams. Only those who persevere succeed because they never give up. We must thus join the perseverers if we want to boost the chances of achieving our dreams.

SEE YOU AT THE TOP

THE END.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere, but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and thus continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere, focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for people to work towards their goals when everything is going well. However, most people get discouraged when the going gets tough. The ability to work when it gets tough is what sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance.

If you don’t give up you can’t fail.’ – Menna Vaan Praag, Successful Author
