“Hard work” we say “breaks no bones”.
That’s absolutely true – hard work breaks no bones.
It is also true that hard work doesn’t guarantee success – because some people work so hard but still fail.
But at least, being lazy is not part of the formula for success.
Those who are lazy do not experience success and do not have the benefits of learning – because they either didn’t put in any work or did not start anything to learn from.
So, as you desire success, you need to keep working – you need to work hard (although we now say “work smart”).
Keep working, keep going. Success is not for the lazy.
