How Success is the Result of Hard Work




Many people would love to identify the key to achievement. Others claim to have that solution—if you pay them a certain price in hard-won time and money. Recently, it’s hard not to notice that quite a few people expect a quick path to success. They think that they can make very little financial and physical effort and achieve all of their goals.


Sorry, that’s not realistic, or fair. We don’t erase debt, wrinkles, weight gain, bad habits, or physical limitations overnight.  Quality books aren’t published with little effort, either. They take time and money. Every single victory is the result of determined planning as well as perseverance. Please see the image below that illustrates this point:



The Bible

“In all labour there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury. The crown of the wise is their riches; but the foolishness of fools is folly.”—Proverbs 14:23-24 (KJV)
My paraphrase: “Talk is cheap and deceitful. You’ve got to do the work and walk the walk. This is true wisdom.”
