Should You Work Hard? - As I Learn With Gal Ezra
Here is something I guarantee you didn't know about!
So you hear all the time, this idea that "you need to work hard" and "hard work is important". "If you're not working hard, you're not going to make it".
People think hard work is like an effort and a struggle. Well, here's what I'm going to tell you that is different.
If you look up the word "hard" in the dictionary, you'll be surprised to find that there's another definition there for the word "hard". That definition says that hard means "enthusiastically and with energy". So if you're working hard, what does that mean? It means you're working enthusiastically. That's the definition that applies when people say "hard work equals success".
They mean enthusiastic work because working with effort and working with struggles is not going to lead you to success, you're going to be miserable. Even if you have money, you won't have success. So you need to work hard, but hard, meaning you put the joy into what you do. You bring the energy into what you do, you make it enthusiastic, and that will lead you to growth, to a nice environment to work around, to overall real successful work that actually brings fruit from your labor. Not the effort and the struggle.
Work hard, but meaning... work enthusiastically.
