Those at the top of the mountain didn't fall there

The way to success is through hard work. The world admires and appreciates the people who are at the pinnacle of success but the hard work and sacrifices they have put in behind that success goes unnoticed and unappreciated.

 

Importance of hard work

Sachin Tendulkar, Steve Jobs, Sunita Williams, Dhirubhai Ambani, Ratan Tata, Shah Rukh Khan are some of the notable personalities among the many to have reached the highest echelons of success through the dint of their hard work and dedication. Hard work is the defining quality of successful people. They are not lazy, they do not shirk work that needs to be done, they don’t procrastinate, this is what separates them from the rest. The hunger to succeed is unparalleled in them and drives them to realise their full potential.

 

Self- Belief

Had Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norway given up after the first step, they wouldn’t have been able to conquer the highest peak in the world-Mount Everest. They believed in themselves and it is their belief and the herculean task they accomplished, that the world started to believe that Everest could be conquered and followed suit. Without belief in yourself, you will not be able to lift even a glass of water. It is our belief that we can hold the glass of water steady in our hands that makes us hold it. Similarly, in life, self-belief is a necessary first step towards greatness. People who shroud themselves in doubt and cynicism will rarely reach the top. Only the people who learn to trust themselves will be ready to face challenges.

 

Act to succeed

Good thoughts will amount to nothing if they are not backed by action. The ability to implement your thoughts and run after your dreams is not common in everybody. There are people who will keep dreaming about being successful but not do the things they require to do to fulfil those dreams. Had Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Charles Babbage, for instance, not acted on their thoughts and ideas, the world wouldn’t have got telephone, electric bulb and computer. If thoughts are essential to existence, it is action that make existence meaningful.

 

Patience

It is quite alright if you don’t reach the mountain in the first attempt, it is quite alright if you fail, it is quite alright if stumble. But, it is not alright if you quit without giving your best. Patience, a rare value in today’s fast-paced life, allows you the mental space and security to keep at what you are doing, even when the chips are down. Patience becomes important, especially if your journey is long. You will get to your goals only if you patiently work towards achieving them moment by moment, day by day. It is your faith in yourself, in the powers that be, that will push you towards great things in life.

Life is not a bed of roses, don’t expect to get everything on a silver platter. Work hard to become a winner.
