IS IT BY WORKING HARD?

Virtually everything we do need a lot of efforts and dedication so as to get good result and make it worthwhile, workinghard has different definition to different people.to me I will say working hard is the amount of energy, time and attention put into whatever you do.being a hard working person entails alot of physicality and punctuality,in the sense that you have to be regular and physical in what you are doing.

Working hard could means you putting so much effort to get things done in your workplace,it could mean you chasing certain things in life ,it could mean you pursueing a career,but one question I have always ask myself is this, why is there imbalance in life and does workinghard or hard work actually lead to a successfull life.

I have seen so many scenerio where peoples have worked the hell out of their life,trying everything triable just to see that there aim in life come true or materialize and at the end they have nothing to show for their hard work.now is it still by working hard?

OR IS IT BY WORKING SMART?

Working smart is now a modern slogan among the young people of the world,everyone is looking for quicker and better means to make their aim in life come true as soon as they can,now working smart from my own understanding means you need deep thinking on what to do to make life better for yourself and the people around you or the world in general,but my question is that how many people are thinking in this direction,everyone seem to be concern about him or herself forgetting that having a solution to a particular problem that the world is facing can actually bring unimaginable success to you and the world as a whole.Bill Gate ,Jeff Bezoss some others profer a solution to problems in life and they became very successful.
One thing about smart people of this generation is that they tend to manipulate others for their selfish interest.

Take for instance, the internet fraudster would do everything within their capacity to convince you to give in to their ideas or make you do what they want you to do in other for them to scam you.this is what working smart has made some us to become.if you have ever be a victim of fraud you will understand what I am saying and the point I am coming from.

Although some people have actually work smart in such a way that they made it to the top that they did not indulge in any messy thing.

Let me say this story of a classmate of mine,during my days in secondary school,there is this guy who was regarded as the best student the school has ever had since it creation,this guy was a genius,he won many award both withing the country and internationally,he graduated with distinction in all his subjects,but guess what? Life has not been fair enough to him as he is finding it hard to cope both financially and other areas of life.

With his academic prowess way back then in school ,it is expected of him to excel in every aspect of life but the rever was the case.now is it by working hard or by working smart?

OR IS IT BY DESTINY?

I so much understand that it is not everyone that believe in destiny,so many people believe that they work to merit things in life which I don't believe it is true.the fact is that everybody's life is centered on destiny and that is why we have people doing things differently in so many different ways.

For success to find you ,you must first of all know your purpose in life.what ever you become in life today is all due to destiny,if you become a doctor , engineer or even the president of your country,it all has to do with destiny,and that is the reason why we can never be equal even if the world becomes better than it is now we will still not be equal.

The truth of the matter is that not all us are goin to be rich ,some are meant be rulers while some are meant to followers,so what ever you are destined to be wil always be no matter what,this is one butter truth that most people are not ready to accept.

So hivers I need your insights based on this,let's talk, opinion are always welcome.Again is it by working hard or by working smart or by destiny.

I do not believe it all happens by destiny unless your destiny changes every time you make a choice. Destiny/destination... that's where you go after making decisions. Destiny is not set, in my opinion.

You said "One thing about smart people of this generation is that they tend to manipulate others for their selfish interest."

I don't believe that to be true in general terms. There are certainly smart people who do manipulate for selfish interest. Though, I'd also argue that the majority of people work toward self-interest. That's how one survives...

Nonetheless, working hard should be matched with working smart. Even better is working wisely. One who learns from their own mistakes is smart. One who learns from the mistakes of others is wise. Applied wisdom is power. Hard work alone can gain wealth, but it's no guarantee. Working smart also does not guarantee wealth, but it's odds increase. Working wisely will have the greatest chances of creating wealth. Wealth can be defined in numerous ways. But, I do prefer wealth over riches.

Writing in Hive won't guarantee riches, but it could lead down roads that produce wealth...

You really have a [email protected],I think you are also right by saying our decisions matters alot, but one question I want to ask you is what about those that are never successful in life, was it as a result of their decisions throughout their entire life?

Yes, absolutely. We all have choices, even one we refuse to believe are choices. For instance, not fighting an attacker back is a choice. Someone who didn't fare well can be related to a sum of decisions made by or for them. I know a lady bound to a wheelchair who uses a computer to speak. She has extremely limited motor skills in her arms and none in her fingers. She types on a machine to speak for her. She wrote a book. I'll have to find the name again... but she wrote a book! We all make choices. Some to be a victor, others to be a victim...

Also, my dad lost millions in the pursuit of creating over 10M... he had over 1.5M in an inheritance that he lost. He lost his retirement. He lost his house. If he had just kept the money in something as simple as a very conservative mutual fund, he could have earned no less than 4%. In 2M, that's 80k/ year. His house was paid for until he borrowed against it... instead, he died basically broke with a 100k life insurance policy. His choices left him broke most of the time. When he had money, he was always in the pursuit of more. My goal is to build residual income rather than an arbitrary amount. I learned from his mistakes...I think...

It's understood that mistakes are bound to go happen as a result of our choices, let take the case of your dad for instance ,I am very sure that if your dad knew that his decisions are going to be against him he won't even think about,so I can say here that Destiny has actually warrant him to lose his money because if will all know that our decision will be against us we won't think of making such decisions.destiny will ways come to play in everything we do.that some of us are getting it right doesn't means its all due to our decision making ability.it all revolves around destiny.if your dad was meant to lose his money,he won't.

I understand that is your belief and understanding. I don't think there is meaning in everything we do or have happen to us, but we can come up with a meaning if we decide it is there. I refuse to believe that my future is set and locked in. Every day is a chance to choose my own adventure, imo.
