It Takes Hard Work

Last Update: July 30, 2016

As a freelance writer, a lot of my time is spent researching various topics for my clients. While writing an article on working hard, I came across these quotations which I would like to share with you all. I found them to be both true and inspirational.

I think these could resonate with all of us. I hope you have an inspirational and productive weekend my friends.

Ciao for now,

We got sold a bill of goods with the Idea that everything is suppose to be easy.

It's hard work that develops persistence. It's hard work that develops character, it's hard work that develops craftsmanship and it's hard work that develops results.

Thanks for sharing Jude

Hi Jude
I think the majority of people that have found WA have the mettle to work hard and succeed. I certainly get this impression from most of the posts I have read.
I am also sure that, because we are all working for ourselves and no longer for shareholders and accountants, a day's honest sweat is much more satisfying.
You have a great weekend too and take care.
Lynn

Poor little ant...but look what he gets when he arrives to wherever it is he's going! All too many forget that most success comes from those 4 words...IT TAKES HARD WORK!
