Work Hard Pays Off With Persistence And Consistency.
Hard work, they say, pays off; persistence and consistency see results. These are not far from the truth. Nothing good in life comes easy, or so they say. Not sure who they are, but they do say a lot. Essentially in putting your heart into everything you do. It means that you have to work hard for what you want. You have to be conscious and present. You have to be aware of your shortcomings and strengths. To know what practical steps you can take to improve your skills and better yourself.
“Nothing comes easy. You want something in life? Get off your arse and work for it.”Anthony Lo
For instance, a worker who does not earn much but works hard at his job. He puts his heart into what he does, smiles and is polite and helpful. And even going above and beyond in the performance of his duties will not go unnoticed, at least not for all. He will succeed and blossom, one way or the other as he creates good karma for himself. His boss is more than likely to appreciate his good nature, even if the boss does not. Somebody else will. The worker is putting out positive energy into the world. And since what you put out is what you get. One way or the other, perhaps through means unrelated to that job. The worker will definitely blossom, and his hard work will pay off. His reputation may precede him, and he may get a better-paying job or an opportunity to start his own business.

Do Your Best, Working Hard Will Pay Off.

If you have to be a friend to someone, then be a good friend, a good person, irrespective of how others behave or treat you, be kind. Let love for yourself and humanity guide you. Treat people as you would like to be treated. Treat your employees how you would like to be treated if you were in their shoes. Talk to people the way you would like to be spoken to.

Work Hard And Stay In Your Power.
Work harder than the average person. You cannot do things the same way and expect a different result, so work harder to get your desired outcome. However, stay true to yourself in the process, do not treat people badly in your pursuit for success and do not allow others to treat you badly as well, know your worth and stay in your power. Treat yourself and others how you would like to be treated.
“Victory only comes through wear and tear.”E. A Bucchianeri
Do not allow people to have power over you, in the sense that if someone mistreats you in the workplace or wherever else, do not feel like you have to pay them back in kind; or have an equally negative response to them. In working hard towards your goals, let your heart guide you always.
React from a place of love, hard as it may be. However, this does not mean that you allow people to walk all over you, and you definitely should not allow people the satisfaction of getting a predictable response from you. Perhaps you may have even been provoked on purpose. Be in control of yourself, your emotions, and control how you react, always keeping your end goal in mind for motivation to stay true to yourself and what you are working towards. Do not let your hard work be derailed.
“It doesn’t matter how hard your life is, was, or will be, just don’t give up.”Dido Stargaze

Consciously self-improving and sharpening your skills. For you are a co-creator of your own reality. You can do anything you believe you can; as long as you back up your belief with actions towards achieving what you want, your hard work will pay off. However, do not forget to be kind to others on your journey to success in life and even thereafter.
