    Here are two possible sentences, but with different meanings.

    You will progress when you work hard, and with a lot of hard work you (can)(will) reach the highest position. (the highest position in the company or organization)

    You will progress when you work hard, and only with a lot of hard work will you reach your highest possible position. (the highest position that you can reach)

    Work hard and you will progress. With progress, you will achieve your highest aspiration.

    Re: Want better English.

    Thank you for your reply post.
    I am not satisfied with yours.
    I want more better English, e.g. with idiom. I want idiomatic expression about that. Could you help me, please?
    May you be happy, healthy and wealthy!

    You will progress when you work hard, and you will reach the highest position when you progress.

    Neither is better, Whitemoon, but if it's idiomatic examples you'd like, we can do that.

    You'll get better/make headway/make great strides when you plug away/beaver away [BrE]/work your butt/tail off/put a lot of effort into it, and you will be top dog/on top the heap/number one/numero uno/the best of the bunch when you progress/advance.

    I want better English more than you do, e.g. (the sentence) with idiom. I want idiomatic expression about the above sentences/of the above sentences/concerning the above sentences.
    Thank you.
