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.

Don’t Let the Society’s Idea of Success Drive You Crazy

Don’t Let the Society’s Idea of Success Drive You Crazy

 ‘I desire a good life for my family, but that does not have to include a range of cars, a yacht in every port or another million.’ – Philip Gardiner

According to modern society, a successful individual is a person with lots of money, mansions, flashy cars, yachts, and other expensive trendy products. Most of us strive to live by this idea, and for this reason, we are stressed because this type of success always seems far away.

Furthermore, we buy trendy things we don’t need, and we take loans to buy these things so that we live by this idea of success. We then notice that these things are useless to our well-being and succumb to depression after realizing that we’ve gotten in debt as a result of trying to live by the society’s idea of success.

The sad thing is most of us start thinking we are unworthy because we haven’t met this type of success, and we constantly think about the future and worry whether we’ll achieve success.

We should discard this idea of success and prevent it from governing our lives and driving us crazy by realizing that it’s not a universal truth since it’s just an idea constructed after the industrial revolution.

A long time ago, people were not obsessed with attaining material success because they focused on spiritual development, accessing higher dimensions, understanding the universe, and becoming moral. And although these individuals valued material success and had ways of measuring it, they seldom obsessed over it.

Therefore, the idea that a person’s worth is determined by material success is a modern idea, and it should not drive you crazy. We were not created in a magical world – spinning on nothingness – to obsess over material success. Instead, we were created in this magical world, with millions of possibilities, to live whatever life we want.

For this reason, we should stop trying to align with an idea of material success that was created by capitalists so that we work in their companies 24/7, participate in expanding their companies by buying several products, and waste our money on expensive but useless things.

We should let our hearts guide us in creating our goals, and we should go after them even when we’ll not attain the society’s idea of success by attaining them. As well, we should also stop worrying and avoid thinking we are crazy when our goals don’t align with the society’s idea of success.

Lastly, we should strive to do whatever leads to fulfillment, and discard society’s idea of success because it makes us focus too much on the future, and it might eventually drive us crazy.

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, but 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.
