Nothing is wasted...Specially the Hard Work

Let me start with an important incident happened with Thomas Alva Edison, someone asked Mr. Edison that what did he gained by 23 trials of making an Electric Bulb, wasn’t it a waste of time for you? He deliberately said, No! it was not waste of time, Now I know there are 23 ways by which a Bulb Cannot be made. … Interesting Answer….Right...?

A positive note is that no effort is a waste, all efforts transforms to some lesson.

Few people are natural hard workers and never wait for results before their second effort, while some of us (I should say more of us) are looking for return on investment like a stock market. But life is not a stock market where return on investment is faster.

A popular and respected religious book Bhagwat Geeta in Hindu religion which is said to be gifted by Shri Krishna, it has clearly indicated that Do the Karma first (your task, your duties), don’t worry for results. If you worry for results, you will never do your Karma well.

I have heard people saying “Why should I Work More If I don’t get Results faster…”, true but believe me the results are not coming in a physical form or in a visible form always. The work done (hard work precisely) has following invisible results which are overlooked by many of us.

1. An experience of various things that could not be experienced without hard work

2. A knowledge of many of new technologies, people, processes that could have not been learned

3. A Perfection in our routine work, a faster work capability which cannot be gained by average worker

4. A chance of winning confidence of people around us, all of us like hard working people, why not you?

5. Above all, a capability and Brave heart to run things on our own without anyone’s help.

None of the above results are physically visible or neither of them could be achieved in a day or two, but if they are achieved, the physically benefits also come slowly but surely. In opposite to that, if physical benefits are received fast, the above given benefits have lesser chances of entering into your life.

Whenever someone works hard, he is the receiver of Direct Benefits, others get indirect benefits.
So a statement saying "Why should i give benefit to other, That's waste of my efforts" is possibly wrong, because the other person is indirect beneficiary, so the other person's gain is less anyway. If someone doesn't work hard just because other may gain it will possible harm himself than other.

Let me tell you the reality in society. I might get some criticism against that, I am prepared for it.

Big Corporate employ young Graduates from High Profile Universities. Why? Some of you would say because they want to grow their Business? True in one sense but here is the truth.
Big Corporate knows that those graduates have tremendous capabilities, if they join small companies, they will make those small into big companies and that will increase competition of corporate.

Rather they give fatty package to High university graduates and ask them to work for them in closed offices with amenities like Ac, mobiles, Bungalow, luxury trips etc.
So as a result, the person becomes addicted to that, doesn’t have to work for long hrs to get those all.

So end of the day we have a person with all Physical things but he will always lack the above 5 benefits. In absence of such 5, he will be always depended on big corporate and never be on his own.

Such physical things give a lot to your body but your soul will not be satisfied unless you do what you want to do in life.

In Small companies, People work hard, at small cost, they learn above 5 and probably more. So they become prepared to face any situation in life. In short their hard work is not wasted. The soul is satisfied, the body is tired and you get a good sleep in night.

One more example, A son of Rich person cannot fit a screw because he has never done it but a son of poor person can fit a whole machine because the hardship of his life teaches him do all his own. A son of Rich has high chances of becoming poor in absence of experience while Son of Poor has full chance of being a Rich one day because of his experience…..

Decide who is the winner in Life.. No need to answer Now.. We all know it …
have a great life ahead :-)

Put lot of hard work and it won’t be wasted at all.
