Bit #12: Work Hard

Little Life Lesson and Bit of Grace 12: There is no escape from HARD WORK!
"Hard work certainly goes a long way. These days a lot of people work hard, so you have to make sure you work even harder and really dedicate yourself to what you are doing and setting out to achieve. " ~Anonymous
There is no simpler way to put it than you must WORK HARD in order to succeed. No one truly succeeds without it. Let's look at some greats (these are merely just a few examples):
Sports: Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods, or Michael Phelps
Business: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, or Warren Buffet
Art: Picasso, Van Gogh, or Georgia O'Keefe
Arts: Tom Hanks, Yo Yo Ma, or Mikhail Baryshnikov
Greatness isn't handed to anyone; it requires a lot of hard work.
NONE of these people achieved their success without hard work and determination. Sure, they had some natural gift, however, with determination, practice, and a passion anything really is possible.
Success doesn't happen overnight either. Don't think that there is a magic potion or spell that you can do...the only magic is going to be from yourself-WORKING HARD!
Find out what interests you. If you aren't excited or interested in what you are doing, it will show and you will never be able to reach the top. Create experiences and surround people with similar interests and ideas. Create a support system of peers, friends, and family that will be there as you explore and work towards your goals and success.
"Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven't planted."
We believe in you!!


  1. This is a particularly meaningful post for me because I was just thinking about this last night as I was doing my 3 miles! Ha! I kept thinking - "nothing worth having is free!" My mom always has said that to me! And you appreciate it so much more when it's not just handed to you!

  2. Just what I needed today!
