[size=150]TOEFL essay samples: Chance or Work[/size]
“When people succeed in life, it is because of hard work. Being lucky has nothing to do with success in life.” Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position.
When people succeed? Who is a successful person? Maybe everybody think that is very easy question but if you think more that there is many different meaning for success. Some people think that a richman is a sucessful person and some others emphasize to the science or the athletic sport.
There is no doubt that there are a lot of sucessfull persons in any apect that are mentioned above. If we study their life we will find that they have had great goals and have attemted to achieve to the their goals. They have had often regular programs for their lifes. Although I dont deny this fact that may had have a little chance but their fame is because of their attemts. For example Bill gates is one of the richest man in the world. He is the boss of Microsoft coaporation one of the biggest sotware coaporations in the world. Maybe he was lucky that he was born in US and studied sotware programming when he was young but there are many sotware engineers in the US that are not as well as Bill.
All in all I belive that achieving great goals can not occur only with reliing to the chance.
