“Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.”
Hard work is an investment with returns both in the near-term as well as the long-term. Near-term one can see the fruits of their labors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes from a job well done. But over the long-term hard work is enabling future opportunities. Are those opportunities or chances guaranteed to come about? Of course not. But one thing is certain. Future dreams and aspirations are guaranteed NOT to happen if you don’t do the hard work today and every day. Waiting to get lucky is a path paved in disappointment and regret. Do the hard work, it is an investment in future opportunities.
