Value of Hard Work Speech for 1 Minute
Hello everyone, today I will be presenting a speech on the value of hard work. Everyone wants to be successful overnight. But does it happen that way? Not really, because there is no shortcut to success. You cannot go around a hurdle and only through it to reach success and the way is paved by hard work.
It is easy to harp on about hard work but difficult to really work hard because it takes perseverance and time. No one in today’s world is patient enough to take the long winding road to success, everyone wants to be millionaires in a day but let’s not forget the saying that “Rome was not built in a day” which tells us about the value of hard work that people knew in the past times. A huge and impressive empire like Rome could never be built in a day and you cannot reach your goals in a day either. Today the dependence on technology and the environment we grow up in has reduced the amount of effort we put into things. Everything is available at a click has made this generation, and I am including myself when I count the whole generation into this, habitual to taking the easy way out. Be it studies, job or even relationships. People are simply not ready to put in the hard work that is needed to preserve a relationship, doing a job or getting a degree. This situation sometimes makes me feel that this generation does not really understand the value of hard work. We want hacks for everything – for life, our chores, jobs and everything else.
But reality does strike us at some point or the other to teach us the harsh lessons of life like the value of hard work. These days people talk about smart work VS hard work and yes smart work is very good when you know how to use it but it is not and cannot become a substitute for the hard work one has to do to achieve one’s goals. It is essential to put the required working hours to work towards your aspirations and become successful thus this is why hard work is a precious and valuable trait. On this note, I conclude my speech on the value of hard work. Thank you!
Value of Hard Work Speech for 2 minutes
Hello everyone, my name is _____ and I will be talking about the value of hard work in my speech. “Hard work beats talent when the talent doesn’t work hard”, you might have heard of this famous quote by Kevin Durant elaborating upon the value of hard work. Do you know the billionaires and the successful people we have heard so much about work more than the average person? Let me present you with the story of some successful personalities who made it big with their passion and hard work.
Elon Musk is one of the most successful entrepreneurs of the 21st century. Do you know how much time he puts in his work? Let me tell you that Elon Musk is known to put in at least 80-120 hours a week which is almost double the amount of work an average person puts into work. The CEO and founder Jeff Bezos put in 12 hour working days during Amazon’s early days and did this 7 days a week, Venus and Serena Williams used to wake up early to play tennis before school and then after school again for their 2nd session. Also, Tim Cook is still the first person to enter the HQ office of Apple and the last one to leave, Michael Jordan’s “insane work ethic” is why he is such a legend now, according to his coach Phil Jackson, Kobe Bryant practised his basketball skills practically every hour of the day.
So there must definitely be a connection between all these successful people working more than the average people. Their dedication, work ethic, perseverance and hard work is the reason they are who they are today. But how to achieve this dedication to work hard for your goals? I can provide you with some advice that would definitely help you in your journey to becoming who you want to be and achieving the dedication for hard work.
It all starts with finding what your passion is and then pursuing it. As Eric Thomas said, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful,” this is a mantra Eric Thomas gave and I believe in it wholeheartedly. There are advantages to having your passion as a career because it intensifies focus, fosters creativity and innovation and inspires you to pursue excellence just like your role model. Whereas doing something just for the sake of it always turns out to have a negative impact on your performance, health and psyche. Your flexibility and ability to adapt to the new changes along with the ability to keep a cool head and handle them in life will take you places. A healthy diet, adequate exercise, and proper sleep are some of the other tips you could use to manage stress and handle pressure while you are working towards your goals.
Lastly, I would like to conclude by saying never hesitate to have big dreams because great things never come from your comfort zone. Do your best without expectations and your dreams will become your reality because “Success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” so understand the value of hard work, be dedicated and goal-oriented to achieve success in your life.
