    cluase, as a result, cluase

    Is it correct to use "as a result" in the following order in the sentence below?. Other alternatives are appreciated.

    "He always tried so hard in this way, as a result, he got one the most successful people in that field."
    "He always tried so hard in this way, as a result, getting one the most successful people in that field."

    Thanks.

    Re: cluase, as a result, cluase

    Your meaning is not clear.

    #1 comes closer to being grammatically correct but needs a semicolon after 'way'.

    Thanks.
    Are you trying to say that he became "one of the most successful people" or that he obtained one?

    Yes. I didn't notice my typing error. Thanks for notifying me.

    You haven't answered my question. I think you probably meant "became" rather than "obtained", in which case "get" is not an appropriate verb.

    Sorry. I don't know how I didn't notice your question. Yes I meant "became" for sure. Thanks for your explanation.
