When people succeed in life, it is because of hard work. Being lucky has nothin.

Dear all,
please grade my essay. I will be really thankful to you.


TOPIC : “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.

Some people believe in luck some people believe in hard work. But one thing is sure that luck can change people life but it’s also true that not all people are lucky. In contrast, if all people do hard work to get something there is probability that they might face failure first time but surely next time they will definitely reach there aim. I personally believe in hard work. Not every time luck will be on your side. There are some chances that some time someone will get good opportunity by luck but luck will not going to help you whole life. I strongly agree with the statement that people are succeed in life is because of their hard work. People who did or will do hard work can only have true smell of success. My examples and reasons below will strengthen my point of view.

To begin with, many people believe in luck. If someone misses good opportunity (for example, about job) they thinks I am not lucky. But they never thought why opportunity is not in their hand? In which area they need to improve next time to not lose good opportunity. Instead hardworking people think, I think I am not given my best this time but I will definitely improve skill and will do best next time. There is no guarantee that lucky person will be successful in life but yes, hardworking people definitely reach success in some time.

Secondly, as I said only hardworking person will know true smell of success. For instance, person who will get job very easily or due to politics will be not as serious about his job profile as compare to the other person who did struggle and hard work to get the same job. The billionaires like Mr. Ratan Tata, Bill Gates are one of not successful businessman now a day because of their hard work. The founder of Infosys N. R. Narayana Murthy started his career with nothing but now he is billionaires due to his self believe strong determination and strong will power.

Finally, there are two things are in life one is hard work and other is luck. Luck is not in our hand but hard work is in our hand. Someone said that luck is like a risk but I think life is just one why to take risk and put our life’s aim in jeopardy.

In conclusion, only hardworking people can be successful in their life. We all are familiar with the quote “hard work is a key of success”.

Hi all,

Kindly review my essay and provide feedback.

It is a perennial argument among the people who wish to succeed, who watch people succeed and people working for success. People say success comes from hard work and others argue success is just a luck. Success can never be just out of luck, it is a product of sustained effort and perseverence in one’s will and work towars reaching the goal.

     Luck is nothing but grabbing the right opportunity at right time. Luck do not have a physical form nor it belongs to certain set of people. Any one who captures the opportunity coming along his way can be lucky.Working hard and utilizing opportunities to showcase the skill is the way to success. Hard work makes a 

person prepared for the opportunity unleashing the powerhouse of talent innate to one’s self. It is the key to success.

   Consider the case of BillGates, Founder of Microsoft. When he started with a dream of making computers available on every desk, world stared at him. Now after he manifested his dream into reality, people say he is successful because he is lucky. Yes, he is lucky as he envisioned the future of the computers. He is lucky because

he could do all the hard work required to achieve his goal.

   Any success story in the world has great amount of effort and hard work in its background. It is undeniable truth that hard work is the key component of success. Luck just brings the opportunity to succeed. Optimists create an opportunity while pessimists wait for opportunity. Successful people make things to happen whereas others wait things to happen.  

      Success is the result of hard work and taking the right path in the way to reach one's goal. Luck has no definition other than being brave in accepting challenges and going forward.

very good
