Some people believe that success in life depends on hard work and determination, while others believe that other factors like money and personal appearance are important. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Success means different thing to different people. Therefore, success by “hard work + Success means different thing to different people. Therefore, success by “hard work + determination” or “money + looks” is a hot topic of debate. This article will discuss both these views. I personally believe that success comes mainly from the hard work and perseverance and only on some odd occasion money and looks can play a role. It would be quite unwise to give credit solely to money and looks for success.
Determination and hard work is an important prerequisite for success. First of all, determination gives us an impetus of setting up goals, which become the cornerstone of success. For example, Marie Curie (Madame Curie) determined to finish her husband’s lifetime unfinished work after his death and eventually discovered radium.
However, determination alone is not enough; efforts are also very important as without hard work determination is of no value. It has been well said that ‘Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety nine percent, perspiration’. Take the example of businessmen. Only those succeed who have determination and who put in a lot of sweat and toil in their business. Good looks and money cannot help you sell your products.
Those who advocate that money and good looks are needed for success, believe that good looks increase the confidence of a person and a confident person has more chances to succeed in his life. With good looks a person can succeed in the acting and modeling fields. They also opine that money is needed to become an entrepreneur and those who have the capital to invest have more chances to succeed. They have faith in the dictum that money multiplies money.
To sum up, a powerful background of money as well as attractive looks can help a certain number of persons to succeed, but too much reliance on these is unpractical. So, success depends on how firmly people hold on to their determination and how much effort they put into their work.
