Essay On Hardwork And Determination

You do not come across success just by hoping for it. To achieve true success, you need the strength of mind and body to struggle and work hard to reach your fullest potential. You need the right attitude, self-discipline and the ability to put your goal before your own needs, if you are really driven towards reaching success. There is, after all no substitute for hard work, and as Henry Ford says, “The harder you work, the luckier you get” – the more successful you get!

How do you overcome success?

Intense hard work along with great skills shall help you win one success after another. There shall be innumerable obstacles strewn in your path towards success, however, what makes a man truly worthy of the success that he attains is the ability to keep struggling until he can reach his goal. Giving up after a few failed attempts makes you a loser.

A truly successful man will keep trying and keep struggling until he perfects his art. Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times while he was working on the light bulb and yet he never dreamed of giving up – this is the hard work and the determination that marks a true success. Indeed, success is not measured by the position that you are in, today but the amount of hard work you put in and the number of obstacles that you overcome to reach your goal.

Why work hard, if there are shortcuts?

The good thing about working hard is, that for people who are driven towards their goal can enjoy their hard work and consequently, the work does not seem unduly grueling to them. When you begin to work hard towards achieving success, make sure to work smartly too. An intelligent working technique, along with relentless effort will go a long way in helping you achieve the success that you always desired.

Nothing in this world comes easily, least of all, success. Take the example of Abraham Lincoln who worked hard, without ever getting disappointed of his countless failures, from the age of 21 till the age of 52, when he went on to become the President of the US. Again, it took Noah Webster 36 years to compile his Webster's Dictionary. Where would we be today if he had not put in those countless hours of hard work behind his grand contribution to the English language?

Therefore, you need to remember that there are no short cuts to success. Hard work, complimented with an intense desire to struggle and to achieve success is the only sure shot way of reaching success that you have always wanted.

Dear all,
please grade my essay. I will be really thankful to you.

Thanks.

TOPIC : "When people succeed in life, it is because of hard work. Being lucky has nothing to do with success in life." Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position.

Some people believe in luck some people believe in hard work. But one thing is sure that luck can change people life but it’s also true that not all people are lucky. In contrast, if all people do hard work to get something there is probability that they might face failure first time but surely next time they will definitely reach there aim. I personally believe in hard work. Not every time luck will be on your side. There are some chances that some time someone will get good opportunity by luck but luck will not going to help you whole life. I strongly agree with the statement that people are succeed in life is because of their hard work. People who did or will do hard work can only have true smell of success. My examples and reasons below will strengthen my point of view.

To begin with, many people believe in luck. If someone misses good opportunity (for example, about job) they thinks I am not lucky. But they never thought why opportunity is not in their hand? In which area they need to improve next time to not lose good opportunity. Instead hardworking people think, I think I am not given my best this time but I will definitely improve skill and will do best next time. There is no guarantee that lucky person will be successful in life but yes, hardworking people definitely reach success in some time.

Secondly, as I said only hardworking person will know true smell of success. For instance, person who will get job very easily or due to politics will be not as serious about his job profile as compare to the other person who did struggle and hard work to get the same job. The billionaires like Mr. Ratan Tata, Bill Gates are one of not successful businessman now a day because of their hard work. The founder of Infosys N. R. Narayana Murthy started his career with nothing but now he is billionaires due to his self believe strong determination and strong will power.

Finally, there are two things are in life one is hard work and other is luck. Luck is not in our hand but hard work is in our hand. Someone said that luck is like a risk but I think life is just one why to take risk and put our life’s aim in jeopardy.

In conclusion, only hardworking people can be successful in their life. We all are familiar with the quote “hard work is a key of success”.

Hi, you have written a pretty good essay. There were a couple sentences I did not understand at all. Watch out for your usage of articles - they can be tricky.

TOPIC : "When people succeed in life, it is because of hard work. Being lucky has nothing to do with success in life." Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position.

Some people believe in luck [while] some people believe in hard work. But one thing is sure[:] luck can change people life{people's lives} but it’s also true that not all people are lucky.{These are two things that are sure - try rewriting the sentence} In contrast, if all people do hard work to get something there is [a] probability that they might face failure [the] first time but surely [the] next time they will definitely reach [their] aim. I personally believe in hard work. Not every time luck will {"... time will luck be .." sounds better} be on your side. There are some chances{There is a chance} that some time someone will get [a] good opportunity by luck but luck will not help you your whole life. {Or "but luck will not always be there to help you"} I strongly agree with the statement that people succeed in life because of their hard work. [Only] People who do hard work can have true smell of success.{Only people who do hard work can truly smell success}. My examples and reasons below will strengthen my point of view. {I would leave out this last sentence, your previous one was a better thesis statement}

To begin with, many people believe in luck. If someone misses good opportunity (for example, about [a] job){leave out the parenthesis} they think I am not lucky {use quotes around "I am not lucky"}. But{try not to start sentences with and or but} they never [think] why [the] opportunity is not in their hand?{no question mark - entire sentence is declarative}. In which area they need to improve next time to not lose good opportunity. {not a complete sentence} Instead hardworking people think, I am not given my best this time but I will definitely improve [my] skill and will do [better] next time.{use quotes around this statement} There is no guarantee that lucky person will be successful in life but yes, hardworking people definitely reach success in some time.

Secondly, as I said only [the] hardworking person will know [the] true smell of success. For instance, [a] person who will get job [through luck] or due to politics will be not as serious about his job [performance] as compare[d] to the other person who did struggle and [work hard] to get the same job. The billionaires like Mr. Ratan Tata, Bill Gates are one of not successful businessman now a day because of their hard work.{I don't understand this sentence at all} The founder of Infosys N. R. Narayana Murthy started his career with nothing but now he is [a] billionaire due to his self believe{self-belief} strong determination and strong will power{willpower is one word}.

Finally, there are two things in life [that might bring success:] one is hard work and [the] other is luck. Luck is not in our hand. {"In our hand" means we already have something - like "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" "In our hands" means we have control over something} Someone said that luck is like a risk but I think life is just one why to take risk and put our life’s aim in jeopardy.{This last sentence doesn't make sense to me - could you rephrase it?}

In conclusion, only hardworking people can be successful in their life.[lives] We all are familiar with the quote “hard work is [the] key [to] success”. {combine this sentence with your final paragraph}

"The billionaires like Ratan Tata and Bill Gates are some of the most successful businessmen today because of their hard work."

I am sorry, I am not a teacher, just a native English speaker, so I really could not give you a grade corresponding to the TOEFL scale.

Hi Dips:

Billionaires like Ratan Tata and Bill Gates are some of the most successful businessmen nowadays because of their hard work.

Nowadays (1 word) = in these times/today.

Hi all,

Kindly review my essay and provide feedback.
Thanks.

It is a perennial argument among the people who wish to succeed, who watch people succeed and people working for success. People say success comes from hard work and others argue success is just a luck. Success can never be just out of luck, it is a product of sustained effort and perseverence in one's will and work towars reaching the goal.

Luck is nothing but grabbing the right opportunity at right time. Luck do not have a physical form nor it belongs to certain set of people. Any one who captures the opportunity coming along his way can be lucky.Working hard and utilizing opportunities to showcase the skill is the way to success. Hard work makes a
person prepared for the opportunity unleashing the powerhouse of talent innate to one's self. It is the key to success.

Consider the case of BillGates, Founder of Microsoft. When he started with a dream of making computers available on every desk, world stared at him. Now after he manifested his dream into reality, people say he is successful because he is lucky. Yes, he is lucky as he envisioned the future of the computers. He is lucky because
he could do all the hard work required to achieve his goal.

Any success story in the world has great amount of effort and hard work in its background. It is undeniable truth that hard work is the key component of success. Luck just brings the opportunity to succeed. Optimists create an opportunity while pessimists wait for opportunity. Successful people make things to happen whereas others wait things to happen.

Success is the result of hard work and taking the right path in the way to reach one's goal. Luck has no definition other than being brave in accepting challenges and going forward.
