The Value of Hard Work

2 years, 4 months ago

Hey HEthens,

My name is Max and I’ve been reading for a little while here on the site. I’ve been into personal development (specifically on becoming a better man) for years now, and felt it’s time to start contributing my knowledge to the world.

I wrote an article on ‘How Hard Work Really Isn’t Hard’, where I go into saying that as a man, hard work is actually what we really want. It’s a bit misleading, but the point is that as a guy, it feels amazing to work hard at something and succeed at it. A lot of people, including myself, fell into the trap of being lazy..especially after reading books like The 4-Hour Work Week..and because of that, I believe that our lives suffer immensely. Our masculine power is drained when we don’t work hard towards our goals.

When we don’t contribute to the world, our manhood suffers and it’s extremely noticeable. Confidence isn’t there, self-esteem isn’t there, and everything just seems off. Do you feel like this or have you ever felt like this? It’s amazing that I realized that once I started working hard even when I didn’t ‘feel’ like it, I felt so much better as a man and everything started to get better.

And..I came here to ask for your opinion on the topic and article because I value your opinions, since people are more open-minded about life here. I’d love to get your feedback on the article on the site and the article, and get any constructive criticism that you may have.

Here’s the article: http://www.innergladiator.com/hard-work/

Thanks HEthens..can’t wait to hear what you guys have to say.

Rock n’ roll McDonalds,

Max

Great post @feren6! Being a huge 4HWW fan myself, I came to the realization that my work is really my contribution to the world, the expression of my gifts, and the creation of my legacy.

From that point on, I embraced the hard work, loved it, even when it was challenging, because I realized it was the key to all my dreams.

Hope this message spreads far and wide!

@feren6, I would agree immensely. I notice when I am out being productive I am in a much better mood and feel more ‘alpha’.

I believe that a man’s worth is measured by his utility and his willingness to apply his talents towards the greater good.

@phildrolet, Thanks!

@splashartist, Isn’t it crazy? It’s like a whole another switch is turned on in terms of personality. I think a lot of people don’t realize this and because of that, they aren’t maximizing their potential.

@manimal, @boribori90, Exactly..great quotes. Definitely going to share those with some people..thanks!

When did you guys first realize the value of hard work? I’m curious because for me it wasn’t instilled in me at a young age and it really took me a while to understand the implications of NOT working hard.
