Smart and Hard Work = Success

These 2 words: “Hard Work” instill fear in a lot of people.

Many people thought that they could make a fortune with a few clicks of a button, lose weight by swallowing a pill, or establish ‘healthy’ relationships by swiping enough rights.

Hard work may be dubious due to our rapid technological advancement.

People chant the mantra “Work smart; not hard” as if to say that talents beat perseverance every time.

However, we know that nothing beats classic determination and perseverance.

If you want to live your best year ever, working smart is not enough, you need to combine working smart with working hard.

“I have had lots of luck in my career but there has also been a lot of hard work.”

Maria Sharapova

It is okay if you don’t have a smart idea or a way to work smarter yet but if you can commit to hard work for the next 365 days, I promise you, something will change by the end of the 12 months.

Even if that project fails, you will learn something extremely valuable.

And that is how you live your best year ever… Even when you lose, you win.

The first step to hard work is usually the hardest… that’s why I have created a list of the best quotes so you can be guided and motivated to take that first step out of your comfort zone.
