Success and Working Hard Usually Stay Close With Each Other

When we talk about success stories, working hard is always one of the things we often mention. I suppose it has been a fact that those who work hard usually achieve success. Although there is no guarantee success will eventually landed on those who work hard, at least we know for sure that if we don’t work hard, chances of achieving success is near zero. This goes the same as pursuing for money making opportunities online or trying to build a business online.

When we are talking about hard working, it’s not about working hard for few days. We are talking about years of hard working. It’s not easy to push ourselves constantly for such a long time. Especially if we are trying to achieve success, sometimes we need to do more than just hard working. Check out the blog post title “People Who Worked Incredibly Hard to Succeed” from Yahoo Finance. Can you put up similar work load and hard work in order to achieve success as well? Take a good look at the amount of hard work these successful people put in.

  • NBA legend Michael Jordan spent his off seasons taking hundreds of jump shots a day
  • Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz continues to work from home even after putting in 13 hour days
  • Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban didn’t take a vacation for seven years while starting his first business
  • Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay’s workouts are so intense, others can’t make it halfway through them
  • GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt spent 24 years putting in hundred hour weeks
  • Apple CEO Tim Cook routinely begins emailing employees at 4:30 in the morning
  • American Idol host Ryan Seacrest hosts a radio show from 5 to 10 A.M. and runs a production company while appearing seven days a week on E!
  • Nissan and Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn flies more than 150,000 miles a year
  • Venus and Serena Williams were up hitting tennis balls at 6 A.M. from the time they were 7 and 8 years old
  • Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant completely changed his shooting technique rather than stop playing after breaking a finger

If you think that you have been working too hard and need a break, take a look at the list and think again. If you are losing motivation to keep on working, take a look at the list. And if you are able to put up similar hard work and effort just like any one of the listed successfully people above, you are definitely very close to success. Or perhaps you already achieved success but haven’t realized yet.
