Perseverance is stubbornness with a purpose.
Hard work is something we keep on listening advice about and generally, the person who is advising us is at a position where we can’t ask them straight:
“Why hard work is important? Why should I give my time to something I don’t like to do while I can spend the same time with my friends or with my GF/BF or with my pillow and bed!”
Some of us are motivated most of the time, but I have seen a majority not being able to get their selves habituated to determination. Hence, they end up asking this question to the world
“Why hard work is important?” Here are some answers they need without a doubt.
1. Guaranteed Achievement
Determination guarantees achievement. Without hard work, it is not possible to be an odd one out and achieve something that you have always wanted. Even those who fail initially ends up winning at last if they don’t leave the hand of hard work. If you are just starting, take a look at some secrets to quit dreaming and start achieving.
2. Gets You the Respect You Always Wanted
You can always see someone around yourself, a cousin, a friend or a classmate who is respected everywhere. His presence is appreciated, his views are taken seriously and people strive to maintain better relations with that person and without questioning everyone on this planet wants it. We want everyone around us to give us a level of respect and value our opinions. Hard work and building self-esteem fetch us this very thing. No matter we are successful or are going to be successful, people always appreciate those who work hard and know what they’re capable of doing.
3. Grows Every Bit of You
Hard work will help you to get better each day, each moment. Many times we look back in our life, and ask ourselves, what have we learned? Hard work helps us grow in all aspects, it takes an amateur man and makes him an expert. Without hard work, growth isn’t possible.
4. Allows You to Live a Regret-Free Life
A survey said that 4 out of 10 people are living a life they are not happy with. Honestly, we don’t know what will happen tomorrow, or after a year. We have seen many people saying “I wish I would have done that before”. Because time has gone. And they just wish they had worked hard when the time was right. Hard work allows you to live a regret-free life. It will provide the necessary framework for a better future and you will never have to say, “I wish I would have done that before.”
5. Keeps You Positive
“Positivity and motivation is the new trend.”
That’s what I read recently. People in the 21st century need images, thoughts, and books to constantly push themselves towards positivity. While doing this we forget that motivation and positivity come from hard work. Hard work and the feeling that comes along will help you stay positive for a longer period.
6. Makes Your Loved Ones Happy
You might be promised some gifts from your parents at the time of exams. Your hard work and progress make them happy. Just like we would like our children or our spouse to be hard-working & we will find bliss in that.
7. Gives Self Satisfaction
“Hard work is the key to self-satisfaction”
We all have read this but it’s time we take it a bit more seriously. After we know how to find ourselves, we live for satisfaction and happiness and one of the key ingredients in the recipe for success is hard work. It brings the joy of being satisfied.
8. Because That Is What Successful People Do
Hard work is the sole answer to your questions when you ask them to people who have to succeed in life. They will also tell you that it is important to grab every opportunity that you get. But the thumb rule is never to leave determination.

9. A Chance to Be One of Those Whom You Follow
We all are crazy behind someone, some charming personality, someone we respect or someone we would like to become, some qualities of some people that we fall for. All this is a byproduct of hard work. As you can turn failure into success, it allows you to become like one of those people and when you will become one of those there would be many people following your steps to achieve what you’ve achieved.
10. Helps You to Enjoy the Journey of Life and Make Meaning out of It
We all have read it that life is not about the destination, it’s about the journey and that is where we need to look forward to making this journey amazing. Reaching the destination would be so boring if there is no struggle in life while reaching there, But as its said patience is a bitter plant but its fruits are sweet. Thus, while living this life we need to make meaning out of it.
11. For that Dream Girl/Boy
Who doesn’t have a dream boy/girl? We all grow up passing from our teens and entering into our twenties and we look forward to spending life with someone who makes it beautiful and easy. But we might not be able to live the best life with our loved ones if we don’t possess the necessary resources for a wonderful life.
12. It Keeps You Healthy
Hard work keeps you healthy, not just physically but mentally as well. Determination gives the ability to strive more in your 24 hours and keeps you away from normal health issues.
13. You Get to Explore the World
With the rewards of perseverance, you get to explore the world and hidden knowledge in it. You get to fly around the world, meet new people, know their culture and a lot more. Check out some careers that make you fly around the world.
14. Allows You to Afford King-Size Hobbies
It’s easy to have kingsize hobbies but it’s not easy to afford them. Hobbies such as owning expensive bikes or cars, roaming around the world, playing expensive sports, trying the best restaurants in town, luxuries of 5-star hotels, etc. Now you would be getting this concept that why hard work is important? because it helps you to have the determination to achieve those king-size hobbies.
15. Gets You Freedom From Sarcastic Comments of Relatives
We all are tired of our relatives! Aren’t we? It’s like there are millions of them and they don’t have anything better to do with their life except interfering in ours! And we have to go through that pain of taking their sarcastic/ironic comments on how we are wasting our time and life! To get rid of this pain isn’t an easy task. But believe me, my friend, Hard work will help you here. It helps you earn that respect and it will make them amazed!
16. Increases Our Confidence
Hard work is one of the most important things in life as it helps us to be more confident. If you will work hard then you will be able to achieve all your goals and fulfill all your dreams. Working hard with full determination always pushes us one step ahead in life and helps us surpass our limitations.
I hope so far you would have understood how hard work and determination allow you to make you most of yourself and convert the efforts into monetary benefits as well as non-monetary benefits that gradually keep on increasing over a period of time.
