I hear a lot of young people in my workplace asking why they should work so hard and do their best when they’re getting paid the exact same salary as the person sitting next to them who is doing far less than they are. Today, I will answer that question for you, and hopefully you will follow my good advice.
There’s always someone watching. Hard work does not go unnoticed. You may think that nobody cares about all your efforts, but you’re wrong. They’re always someone who witnesses your hard work. It might be your boss, your coworkers, your clients,
Even if you believe that nobody is noticing your hard work, you’d be wrong to stop giving your best. By working hard and making efforts, you’re becoming better at your job, and that’s the most important reward. You’re developing skills that you will use for the rest of your life. The more you do something, the better you become at it. The harder your work at something, the more skills you develop. Moreover, if youget into the habit of always doing your best, after a while, it will become second nature for you. I’ve noticed that I’m now very good at doing things that I was not so good at before. I also enjoy doing them now, instead of hating them like before. What’s the difference? Are the tasks different? No. What’s different? I am. I have changed. My skills and my attitude have changed. That’s the best gift you can get from any work you do.
When you get into the habit of doing things that you’re not comfortable doing, you will soon become amazed at how quickly your skills grow. Anthony Robbins said that “Repetition is the mother of all skill” and he was 100% right. If you want to become better at anything, just do it as best as you can and as often as you can and you will soon become a master at it. It does not matter what you want to improve in your life. Just work hard at it everyday, and you will soon be amazed at what you can do.
God bless you!
