"I do not know anyone who has gotten to the top without hard work. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but it will get you pretty near" Margaret THATCHER

The governor called workaholic

A lot has been said of the nature, thinking and work ethic of Ebonyi Governor Engr Umahi.  
"Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty" we read from the HOLY BOOK

And since we are in the CBN/Global money week, the workaholic CE of his state was magnanimous to tell today's youths some benefit they can derive as workaholics

THE Governor who is said to work all days of the week and most Sundays, is a perfect role model top young ones and must be well listened to

Here are some of the benefits he wants today's young ones to know of the benefits they stand to gain by working very hard

·        *  Hard Work Builds Character – We’re living in the midst of a character crisis.  If we can’t have something in 5 minutes we don’t want it.  And if getting it is hard, forget it!  But hard work builds character.  You learn discipline.  You learn to focus.  You learn to manage your time and your resources.  You learn to ignore the critics who are telling you it can’t be done.  Don’t be a quitter.  Quitting is easy.  Giving up is easy!  But EASY never builds character.  Strong character is built the same way strong muscles are build – Hard Work!  Success – you see – isn’t the greatest reward of hard work.  Character is more important than success.  And hard work builds character.  Former MLB player for the White Sox and Blue Jays, Samuel Ewing, put it this way:  “Hard work spotlights the character of people:  some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.”

·         *Hard Work Gets Results – Hard work ALWAYS
accomplishes something.  It might be you learn something.  It might be you build something.  It might be you change something.  But had work always gets results.  It has been said “Some people dream of success… while others wake up and work hard at it.”  Laziness doesn’t result in anything but wasted time and resources.  Do you want to see something happen?  Work hard.  I like the way Abraham Lincoln put it “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” 

·        *Hard Work Draws Attention – Want to get noticed?  Work hard.  The diligent stand out.  We live in a culture that increasingly encourages and fosters minimal effort.  Want to turn some heads today?  Give 110% to whatever you are doing.  It doesn’t matter how many talents you have, or what you are called to do, do it with passion!  Give it your heart!  And soon the world will be watching.  “If a man is called a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.  He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and Earth will pause to say, Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.”  ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

·         *Hard Work Blesses Others – No lasting benefit to mankind is achieved without hard work.  The second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as ourselves.  We typically work hard to please ourselves.  We should work harder to please others, bless others, and help others.  Work hard, and don’t worry about who gets the credit.  Work hard, and the world is blessed.  Such individuals are few and far between.  Hard workers are worth their weight in diamonds.  Horace Mann, the 19th century education reformer born here in my state of Massachusetts once said “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.”

So young ones, you have read a what the Governor and role model has to say to you on hard work, so stay focus, work hard, save hard and  be humble
