Life is full of twists and turns .Everyone has to struggle here in this world to overcome every obstacle in the way to success.For this hard work is necessary. Without working hard and just by sitting idle it will be hard for one to get success. Since from childhood and till now I always remember the sentence that my parents used to tell me "TO be A better person in life and to get success YOU havE to work hard, The result of hard work is always fruitful,so YOU have to work hard". I want to give exampleS from my experience today whatever I am its only becAUSE of hard work. For a guy from A lower class family it is almost impossible to GRADUATE in enginneering BY FINANCING YOURSELF. It's only becAUSE of the regular hard work I got A scholarship to do BTECh.I don't believe in luck since luck is never my LOT.

Today's world is a competItive world. Everyone here wants to be famous and wantS success in his life. Whether he may be A successful boxer, sportman, actor or writer his present positiOn is only due to hard work.Let's take an example FROM people who win gold medalS in THE OLYMPIC Games ,novel??? prize in differENT fields of knowledge is only because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with it .Just by watching television and siTTing idle if YOU are saying that can bend down success in your knee means YOU are wrong. YeS perhaps YOU HAVE got success sometimes becAUSE of your luck but it is not true always .Saying that I am A lucky person success automatically comes ....these are the only wordS of saying ,reality is different .

There is a well kNown proverb "NO pain, NO gain" hard work never goES wasteD .Although it may be later or sooner success comes to YOUR feet. we can have a look towards the life of great PEOPLE in the world like Mahatma GHandhi ,NapoleOn ,Florence ??,Shakespeare ,gautam buddha,Albert Einstein,Newton they all had struggled hard…...

...application and effort.” The opposite of a diligent person is one who is indifferent, lazy or a sluggard. An indifferent and lazy person displays a lack of interest or concern, placing little or no importance or value on their schooling and education. A sluggard is nothing more than a habitually idle or lazy person. Diligence reaps rewards Two scriptures in the Bible prove this point. Let’s see the downside of the first in Proverbs 13:4 , “The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.” This person wants to be successful, with all of the wants and desires, but without diligence he cannot make it. The last part of the verse indicates the diligent person is going to be successful. Proverbs 12:24 also verifies this: “The hand of the diligent will rule, but the lazy man will be put to forced labor.” The diligent person will be in control or in management—will rule. But the indifferent person, the sluggard, will be forced to work at the more menial paying jobs that won’t produce the good things or extras in life that most people desire. Think about something as this school year ends. You could approach the rest of the school year from either of the two different attitudes we just read about. You could decide to just get through it—get your time of education behind you and deal later with whatever comes next. Maybe you treat some of your classes that way—just enduring them—while you enjoy and are diligent in other classes.......

Hebrew Wisdom

...being diligent, wise, lazy, and having folly is knowledge. Proverbs addresses this in its first chapter: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7). This is the most basic ingredient in wisdom. All wisdom depends on knowledge of God and the submission to His will. To think or believe that you know something, but you do not know God negates the value of having knowledge. Wisdom comes from being faithfully diligent in the Word of God. Many positive effects come from being diligent. Some of those are wealth, wisdom, abundance, power, satisfaction, profit, and meaningfulness. Laziness brings forth negative effects of poverty, disgrace, servitude, failure, destruction, hunger, fear, absurd behavior, ruin, decay, and death. Having folly is one of being a fool that lacks good sense. Those that is lost to the Lord. Early in the book of Proverbs you find, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). The last four verses of this chapter that follow this verse are a key to its meaning. It is a warning of the perils of adultery that is found in chapter five. They warn you to stay away from those who lie, and to keep your eyes straight ahead. Do not be looking around. Stay on the path of righteousness. The diligent person stands firm in God’s ways. In chapter twelve of Proverbs, we find the diligent man in charge of the lazy; “The hand of the diligent......

Hebrew Teachings of Wisdom

...Teachings of Hebrew Wisdom on Diligence and Laziness By: John Cleveland Throughout the Bible, we see the importance of being diligent in our walk with Christ as oppose to falling asleep and becoming lazy. As followers of Christ, we know that by applying the knowledge given to us from the Bible can have a profound impact on our lives. When we study God's Word, we receive wisdom and we are then able to use this wisdom in our daily lives. However, if we choose to not be diligent in our walk with Christ, then we could possibly backslide as a result of being lazy and falling into deeper sin. In this essay we will look at what the Hebrew teachings say about diligence as oppose to being lazy regarding our following of Christ. In discussing what the Hebrew teachings have to say about diligence and laziness, we will be looking in the Bible from the book of Proverbs. The author of Proverbs, Solomon, asked and received wisdom from the Lord and he teaches us a lot about diligence and how it differs from laziness. He shows us the importance of being diligent. Solomon states that, “a sluggard's appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.” (Proverbs 13:4) When we are constantly seeking after more wisdom, we are not left empty. Our diligence reaps reward because the knowledge we receive helps us in every aspects of our life. Feeding off of God's Word gives us strength to face the challenges in our lives. Solomon states, “hold on to......

...recommend that people should follow what the Bible has told us and listen to our God’s commands. Because the knowledge that Bible gives us will have a good and profound influence on our lives and help us out in many situations. During the process of reading Bible, we may gain much wisdom that will be helpful in our daily life. Also, God will see us that we are diligent in following his words and he will bless us in the future life. However, if we choose laziness when we are walking with God, he could penalize us because of the laziness that we have and let us fall into a much deeper sin. So Hebrew tells us about the good results of being diligent in our walk with Christ and it also points out the negative effects of laziness. “A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied”. (Proverb 13:4) This is a scripture that I quoted from the Proverb 13:4. The writer of Proverbs, Solomon, pointed out that being diligent in our daily life would fulfill our life with wisdom and we would never feel empty everyday. We can receive plenty of knowledge and wisdom if we are hard working and diligent in finishing our daily tasks. However, laziness is a bad habit that we should overcome in our life. Bible tells us that, “The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway”. (Proverbs15: 19) A sluggard won’t have a chance to fail because he never trying to succeed. In that case, laziness has fulfilled his whole life......

...lives. Within Hebrews the terms laziness, diligence, folly and wisdom are utilized. God’s plan for us to apply some of these terms and to give terminology to the way we should be living against.  The Essence of the Old Testament: A Survey is very clear about laziness, “Lazy behavior results in poverty while diligence results in wealth” (Hindson, 2012). Hindson (2012) describes laziness as being produced by talking and not working toward earning wealth. This description is also described as having lazy people lead   into poverty. Proverbs 13:4 (English Standard Version) explains God’s desire to not be lazy, “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied”.  Obviously by this description God desires us to be diligent. Hindson (2012) describes the diligent as becoming wealthy by their work. We are reminded that we should not be taken over by the yearning for this wealth and that the wealth we gain must not be corrupt. God states that those who gain wealth this way will be judged. “Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty” (Proverbs 22:16, ESV). Hindson (2012) nicely words this, “some are rich because of greed and corruption while others are blessed by God and their own diligence”.  Folly is introduced in the Bible as a tool to apply to avoid further failings in life. Folly is making wrong decisions even if the right decision is known by the person (Hindson,......

Work as a Victory of Man

...fingers to bone were honoured and successful. They emerged as victorious nations of the world. They ruled over the world as long as they remained diligent. But when they broke the habit of industry and became lethargic, they were humiliated and disgraced. Islam lays a great stress upon diligence. The holy prophet said. “The hardworking man is friend of Allah.” The holy prophet would do his work with his own hands. He disliked if someone should do his work for him. The holy life of the holy prophet reflects the dignity of work. “nothing is for a man but the thing he struggles for.” The beloved daughter of the holy prophet did her household work herself. She herself would grind flour, bring water and sweep the house. All these examples urge us to be diligent in life. In the present era, the Muslims have lost their grace and honour. The only reason behind it is that they have forgotten the golden traditions of their forefathers. On the other hand, the western nations have adopted the habit of diligence and assiduity. That is why they are the ruling nations of this age. If the Muslims want to regain their lost glory, they have to adopt the forsaken habit of labour. Then they would be able to walk with their head erect. Briefly speaking man cannot succeed without hard work. Struggle determines the success or failure of our plans. Diligent nations can do wonders in every sphere of life. Crowning achievements, superior status and enormous dignity could be attained through......

...debt is out of control due to things like welfare, medi-cal, tuition loans not repaid, subsidized housing, etc. We are rapidly losing a generation of youth to drugs and violence and single parent homes. Rather than educating them we are putting them in prisons at a cost that we cannot continue to pay. I was always taught to work hard for everything and never take a hand out from anyone. When we look into the book of Proverbs we find it is full of lessons regarding the wisdom of being diligent verses the contrast of being lazy!  King Solomon states, “. . . the soul of the diligent is made fat” (1) “He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, but he who……” (2) I have personally never been on any kind of assistance programs even though I have been out of work several times in my life. One thing I was always taught was to put money aside for a rainy day. I have never been a rich man monetarily but have amassed great riches in other ways. In Chapter 21 King Solomon also states, “…..the diligent lead surely to advantage.”(3) Heeding to good counsel and following through with good Godly plans surely gives good results in our lives. Now this is not saying that everyone who is Godly or a Christian will not have lives that may be filled with troubles and problems. Our problems or mishaps can never be bigger than our blessings. The class separations in our world show exactly what King Solomon warned us about. The rich keep getting richer and the poor still struggle. We are......

Bibl 105 Essay 2

...contrast it with laziness with parallels. He teaches that a diligent man will never want. Proverbs 13:4 says, “… the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.” In Proverbs 21:5,”The plans of the diligent only lead to abundance…” while Proverbs 10:4 says, “The hand of the diligent enriches”, and Proverbs 12:11 says, “He who works his land will have plenty of food.” And all those these things seem outright and not too important, they obviously had to be other wise Solomon wouldn’t have recorded them then. But because of the money Solomon’s kingdom had there was a lot of room for laziness for the people. In the eyes of the diligent people the lazy people were low lives or people who they just didn’t like or care for. An example is Martha who worked so hard she missed almost all of Jesus’ sermon in Luke 10:40 in her own house. Solomon says diligence is described like this, “She looks after the ways of her household, and the bread of idleness she will not eat.” This teaching could bring a lot from us. As personal disciples of Christ we should be following this teaching at work, school, our homes, our churches and wherever we are. Those who continue in diligence and don’t get bogged down by laziness can strive for leadership roles in there careers and at church they can also have a great influence on others. We are told in Proverbs 12:24 that “The hand of the diligent ones will rule…”, Jeroboam was found to be diligent in I Kings 11, he then was put ahead of workers and......

Wisdom and Laziness

...teaches that a wise man is one that is diligent with his work and a person that is lazy is a fool. One could say the primary source for Hebrew wisdom is form the book of Proverbs in the Old Testament written by a man who received wisdom from God, King Solomon (2 Chronicles 1:10). There are many themes covered throughout the book of Proverbs, however some of the most prevailing themes are that of wisdom and folly. “The book of Proverbs consistently presents the sluggard as a fool and the diligent person as wise” (Hindson, 2012). The teachings throughout the book of Proverbs show how diligence and laziness correspond with the contrast between wisdom and folly. If a person were to read the book of Proverbs they would not just understand that it is wise to be diligent but also see the rewards promised to them. King Solomon writes that, “ . . . the person in diligence is richly supplied” (Proverbs 13:4), “The plans of the diligent only lead to abundance . . .”(Proverbs 21:5), and “the hand of the diligent enriches.” (Pr. 10:4) (Frank, 2013). Through Solomon God has revealed the blessings that befall a diligent man and shows that he would rather a man be working than not. Being a diligent person will not only yield us fruit in the way of financial blessings but also in other areas of our lives. If we are diligent about the work Christ has left for us in Matthew 28, the great commission, we will be blessed as soul winners. A diligent man is not the only thing portrayed as......

...stones deep underground. The book of Proverbs, however, is like a mountain stream littered with nuggets, just waiting to be grabbed. And many of these nuggets are wisdom. The book of proverbs consistently presents the sluggard as a folly and the diligent person as wise. In following the lifestyle of a diligent wise man or one of a lazy fool is presented throughout the readings of Proverbs. “All wisdom, even things related to everyday practical matters, begins with the fear of the Lord (1:7). Therefore, Hebrew wisdom literature taught people not only how to make good choices in life but also how to make godly choices.”(The essence of the Old Testament) Solomon, wrote most of the Proverbs, is well known for the wisdom gifted him by God upon requesting it. According to the Bible Solomon’s wisdom was divinely granted and surpassed that of all other sages (1kgs 4:29-34). Even Jesus accepted the historicity of the biblical account of Solomon’s wisdom (matt12:41), and thus, there is little reason from scripture to question Solomon as the author/originator of the proverbs attributed to him.( The essence of the Old Testament). The contrast between wisdom and folly is often a Sharp contrast between righteousness and wickedness for example; the diligent person is wise while the sluggard is a fool or the one who holds his tongue is wise while the fool hastens to speak. (The essence of the Old Testament).I have often heard the definition of wisdom being knowledge applied. We can......

The Contrast of Dililgence and Laziness and How It Relates to Wisdom and Folly.

...one’s work ethic, the Bible tells us “that poor is the one who works with a negligent hand, but the hand of the diligent is rich” (Proverbs 10:4). Hebrew wisdom also details the end result of idleness and senselessness. The author in Proverbs states that “the soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat” (Proverbs 13:4). Nevertheless, one should not equate wisdom and diligence to earthly riches, for fear and persistence in searching God are the only riches that shall endure. It is a common saying that if you work hard you can achieve success. Diligence in one’s work habits can reap great rewards. Laziness, on the other hand, can lead to financial despondency. The book of Proverbs is full of Scripture on diligence and laziness. Proverbs uses several forms of parallelism to “express the idea that lifestyle choices have consequences, but they express that idea by using contrasting terms and opposite perspectives” (Hindson Ch. 21). For instance many of the analogies made in Proverbs reference eating and feasting, such as, “The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious” (Proverbs 12:27). Another example is, “The sluggard does not plow after the autumn, so he begs during the harvest and has nothing” (Proverbs 20:4). The general theme between the two is that the diligent will reap the benefits of his or her labors and the slothful shall hunger and perish. If one were to......
