Closing note

The thing about working hard, is that it is hard work, but worth it

We live in an era of do or dash, anything we want we can get almost instantly; from groceries, entertainment, shopping, information about almost anything, money from our bank and so. This makes us not appreciate the value of real labor and hard work, and instead see it as a burden.

Instead, we need to understand the value of work and give it its rightful place if we are to achieve anything noteworthy in this life.

Hard as well as smart work is needed if you desire to achieve anything worthwhile in life.

The journey is also a bumpy, challenging, and painful one but the destination makes it all worth it.

Once we learn to embrace the journey and all that comes with it, then success shall soon be our portion.

Hard work always pays off.

If you enjoyed these good motivational quotes, please share them with your family and friends to help them keep motivated too.

Above all, remember to put in the work consistently.

Do something your future self will thank you for.

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

~ Henry David Thoreau, naturalist, essayist, poet and philosopher
