Hard work is key to success in life
So hard work is the price which we all have to pay for every achievement in this world. We cannot achieve any substantial success if we become Tennyson Ian Lotus-Eaters thinking that ''slumber is more sweet than toil''. To know the unknown and to explore the unexplored avenues of life, we will have to brave and breast the perils of the sea. We cannot shelter ourselves from chilly winds, torrential rain, the intolerable and scorching heat of the sun, if we do not build cosy houses for ourselves. A swimmer cannot be an expert in the art of swimming if he does not breast the buffeting strong currents daily. A student cannot be crowned with success in the examination if he does not ''scorn delights and live laborious days''. A laywer can not win success at the bar if he does not burn the midnight oil. A doctor cannot be popular if he is not prepared to sacrifice his rest. Hard work is necessary for the statesmen statesmen sand the politicians if they wish to be remembered in the annals of history. It is essential for the teachers if they wish to become popular among the students. The lives of the great men of the world tell us that they have achieved his acme of greatness through the process of hard work. Quaid-e-Azam became the Father of Nation because he worked hard and carved out a country on the map of the world.
It is a false belief that Fate alone makes one great and that hard work plays no part in it. No one can become great if he does not toil and take pains, no one can reap the harvest of prosperity if he does not pass through the mill of hard work. A writer has said, ''Diligence is the mother of good luck, and God gives all things to industry. Industry pays debts, but idleness increases them''.
The most unfortunate and wretched man is the slothful man. He remains a parasite and hanger-on for ever and passes the days of his life on the refuse of others. An ordinary person can become the cock of the walk only through hard work. Hard work is the golden key that unlocks all the hidden treasures of life.
