Without a doubt, hard work is a much better predictor of success than natural
ability. In my experience, I have seen this at work in sports, school, and work.
Many athletes have a natural ability to run the fastest mile or kick the ball the
most accurately. Unless they work hard though, they will not be a star. They need to
train daily, eat properly, and live correctly. It takes hard work to be Number One.
At school, I have seen many very bright students do poorly on exams. They
count on their intelligence to get them through. However, unless they do their home-
work every day, participate in class discussions, and study for exams, they will be at
the bottom of the class.
Many salespeople can talk with anyone and convince him or her to buy some-
thing. They have a natural ability to sell. They must however apply some hard work to
this skill. They must learn a lot about their customers, about the product they are sell-
ing, and about the market. They must put some effort into the paper work that goes
along with the sale. If they dont follow through, the sale will not be made.
Whatever the area, whether on the playing field, at school, or on the sales floor, a
person must not rely on his natural ability alone if he or she wants to succeed. They
must work hard to be a success.
6 Some people prefer to get up early in the morning and start the days work.
Others prefer to get up later in the day and work until late at night. Which do
you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your choice.
I prefer sleeping late and staying up late at night. This routine fits my bodys
rhythm, my work schedule, and my social life.
I believe in following my bodys natural rhythm. My body tells me to sleep until
I am ready to get up and go to bed when I am sleepy. This means I never get up early in
the morning. My body tells me it likes me to get 8 to 10 hours of sleep a day.
Sleeping late also fits my work schedule. Actually I dont have that much work
to do. I can easily finish my work between lunch and dinner. I think that if one works
too much, there is not enough time left to enjoy ones self.
My active social life is another reason I prefer to sleep late. Who gets up early in
the morning to have fun? No one. Anything amusing, such as concerts, dances, parties,
dinners, all happen at night. If I got up early in the morning, I would be too tired to en-
joy myself in the evening.
