Do you work hard?

bushJake work’s really very hard that’s why he earns more money then Ryan,since Ryan does not work equally hard so he earns less.My daughter work’s harder then my son so she scores better then him in academics,these are some of the conversation’s i have overheard and it would always make me think what exactly was hard work,was it working for long hours or was it straining oneself or falling ill working towards one’s goal,i did not know what working hard was,because the society around me always associated hard work with success,which i was not at least in terms of “certain” academic subjects like math,i would be labelled a lazy douche bag or a failure or something similar,but even i would study just like others but i just could not connect with why A square= B square or why some thing was equal to something and not equal to something else it just did not make sense to me i would ask myself how is this going to help me in my everyday life,but still i was the one who was not working hard according to my teachers,that is  when i started to feel that only successful people were hardworking or vice verse,but then as time passed i entered college and that is  when i realized there was no connection between hard work and success,rather i would go to the extent of saying there is nothing or some term that “successful” people have invented to highlight their success,i felt hard work was not possible either you work smart or you slog,you do not work hard,working in a manner in which you can increase the output and reduce the time to produce the output has made people successful,but this is only theoretical,the real thing was it does not matter how many hours you work or how well do you concentrate what people care about is the end result and the earlier you give them results the more the chances of success you have,now how do you get these results is unto you you want to cheat go cheat you want to find shortcuts go find shortcuts you want to manage your time well do that but just get the results.is this what we as a human race wanted to come to,we have created a hierarchy those who are the more successful personalities of their profession or whatever they are hard working and hence successful,the two have no co-relation those who achieved success and those who did not had only one difference the successful one’s did know how to get their or to put in a more respectful manner find their way,they knew when to do what and when to be where,you are not a success or a failure you just haven’t made the right moves unless obviously you do not like to move your ass but for all those who put in an effort but have not tasted the so-called-success,just hang in there success might just be on it’s just waiting for that one move i do not know what that one move is but we just need to hang in there and keep trying.I myself being a student who struggled to pass in so many of my subject in school to going on to studying in one of the most prestigious law schools in my country,but i still do not consider this to be a success because i still do not  know if i really am happy doing what am doing so i am going to keep trying by doing things that i like doing something that i could turn from a hobby to a full time profession,something that i would enjoy working alongside my legal studies,something that i might even want to replace my studies with.Success according to me would be to continue exploring the various aspects of your life and then finally settling on something that would give you satisfaction,the kind of satisfaction that you were always looking for.
