I have two widely prevailing and mutually contradictory views on hard work. One is that however hard you work, you are only going to get whatever is there in your fate. Other one is that ‘nothing is impossible’. First view is held by those who are either influenced by creationist ( God will do) or who have experienced failures in spite of hard work. Second view is held generally by those who have experienced success.
My views on hard work are somewhat statistical. To me fate is nothing but chance. While people say somebody is born in rich family by fate, I would say it is so by chance. Thus it would be more appropriate to say that hard work doesn’t guarantee success, but improves its chance.
Do you agree?
