The key to success lies in hard work. So, if you think that if there is a shortcut to achieve success, then you are being delusional. The success that people achieve through shortcuts doesn’t last for too long. Many people who begin on the road of hard work and incessant effort take a diversion to the road of easy money where they don’t mind cheating people and do all sorts of unethical stuff.
There is one thing that I need to tell you that if you wish to become successful for eternity, then you will have to opt for a tough road that leads you to success with respect and appreciation from all your associates. I would like to give you an example of Nyauw Gunarto, who is a superb talent coming from a small town of Semarang, Indonesia. Coming from a humble background, he never complained about his shortcomings, but he worked hard and became a successful painter.
Now, you can check out his paintings in any major art gallery in the world, and you will find his paintings being displayed in numbers. This is what I call success, and if you want to become successful, then that’s how you can become. There is no other way than hard work and dedication towards your work.
