Many of us underestimate the value of a hard day’s work. It’s easy to get lost in the humdrum routine of waking up, going to work, coming home to bed, and repeating the next day. However, we should often stop to remind ourselves that our jobs, no matter how trivial they may seem, do make a difference.
If you work hard and give it your best, you grow in value in your job and in the world around you. A hard worker is someone who cares about the task at hand, even if it is menial and goes without thanks. A hard day’s work never fails to reap the benefits, whether you notice them or not is up to you.
Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
It’s like Forrest Gump said, ‘Life is like a box of chocolates.’ Your career is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. But everything you get is going to teach you something along the way and make you the person you are today. That’s the exciting part – it’s an adventure in itself.
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.
The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.
By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work.
