Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.

Ann Landers

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.

Peter Drucker

Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work – and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.

Lucille Ball

Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions – Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.


I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work.

Louis C. K.

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.

Ray Bradbury

The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

Vince Lombardi

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.


The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one.

Oscar Wilde

Don’t be busy. Be productive.

You can wish for it, or you can work for it. Your choice.

I never feared about my skills because I put in the work. Work ethic eliminates fear. So, if you put forth the work, what are you fearing? You know what you are capable of doing and what you are not.

Michael Jordan
