“Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas Alva Edison

An opportunity to succeed in our chosen field requires hard work and persistence for success comes to those who put their heart and soul into their work. For it is not enough to punch in and out doing only what is required to fulfill a day’s work.

To take an interest in our work and to work diligently at our chosen field can and will bring about success. Providing we work with a positive attitude and tackle the obstacles, we encounter as we toil throughout the day.

We must not be afraid of hard work for success comes from the sweat of our brow. Not all great men and women of yesterday as well as today achieved greatness by merely working from nine to five and putting their time in only doing the required work called for by their job and nothing more.

Hard work begets success as we walk through our cities of skyscrapers and paved sidewalks let us reflect for a moment on the hard work involved in bringing our material world into existence. All of the wonders around us came from someone’s ingenuity.

There are still many opportunities out there in the real world for those whom are no afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work. Age does not have that much bearing on our success. Colonel Sanders (of Kentucky fried chicken) was in his 60s when he made his first million.

Opportunity and success does not entirely mean financial gain for we can be successful in our profession and live on a modest income. Some of our geniuses although they may find new discoveries and unravel the mysteries of life, live humbly.

To like what you’re doing is the secret to success for if we like what we’re doing we don’t look at our work as a burden but rather as a fulfillment of our lives.

“I never worked a day in my life it was all fun” Thomas Edison

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” Albert Einstein
