HARD WORK WONT KILL YOU: For some, if not many…don’t really have to work all that HARD to get ahead in life…from a career perspective. Others of us… myself included… have to work our tails off to get ahead in life. In too many cases, the path to success is ‘arranged.’ Much like that of a marriage in some cultures. For some…it’s all in who you know, or who your Daddy knows. Maybe …it’s who your Father, brother, or uncle…went to school with, or the fraternity they belonged. These types of doors are opened… just because…of ‘who you know.’
Some doors are opened because… one came into the job because of his/her heredity… much like a King, or Queen… meaning, they were ‘next in line.’ Some, then, are ‘appointed or elected’…and NEVER had to go through the ‘earning and learning process.’ Still, yet… many, many EARN their way through, hard work in the educational process…the learning process, and the application process. That is to say…how one ‘applies’ what they have learned.
Of course, this is a broad cut…and on average, most of us ‘WORK… until our knuckles bleed’… then work some more. Nights and weekends are just ‘part of the job.’ Has anyone every hard of ‘hard-work’ ‘killing’ anyone? Well not… in recent centuries.
Remember too…there is such a concept of … “the early bird gets the worm.” And, my favorite…NEVER taking NO for an answer.
God tells us to work hard, diligently, and commit to doing good… and being good. God wants us to succeed, but “just talking about it will not bring success.” God tells us to be patient and success will prevail.
Rather one is a Leader… or a Follower …is not the point…the point is to do either at your best… and not to take your responsibilities lightly. Solomon tells us in… Proverbs 14:23 – All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. And, Moses tells us in…. Genesis 3:19 – By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.
