Success is based more on luck than hard work
Those who cherish Edison’s saying “genius is ten percent inspiration, ninety percent perspiration” would disagree that luck is the crucial factor of success. As one of such supporters, I firmly believe that everything yields to diligence. Though luck is most likely a determining factor of any easy achievement, it is diligence that makes a man truly successful.
History has proven that many accomplishments were achieved by luck. For instance, Archimedes , by chance, figured out upward force while bathing and Isaac Newton accidentally learned about universal gravitation from a falling apple. During everyday life, men win simple victories by a stroke of fortune. Many have claimed that only a little luck is needed to ease their difficulties and/ or to reach their target at work, at school or in life. Consequently, luck aids greatly in significant accomplishments.
Luck is, however, not the decisive factor of success; diligence is. Though Archimedes found out about upward force by chance, he still spent a great deal of time researching in order to conclude the well-known Archimedes’ principle. Assiduousness is attributed to the discovery of Newton’s law of gravity and his other remarkable inventions alike. Such examples show that only persistence and hard work help people to succeed. In other words, to be successful, it is better to work hard rather than wait for good fortune.
In short, working hard is more important than luck in achieving success. Though luck is necessary to free people from hardship and to bring more opportunity, only through diligence and hard work can you earn success.
