Hard Work and Determination
By Rick Boxx
August 8, 2011

Kent Humphreys in his new book, “Letters to Workplace Leaders” references a survey that was taken that asked, “Of the successful people that you have met, which of the following is the main reason for their success?” The two top answers were: hard work and determination.

40% said hard work and 38% said determination. These surpassed knowledge, luck, contacts, and other factors.

The Apostle James knew this. He taught in James 1:12, “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

Perseverance connects hard work and determination into a winning formula. If you’re facing a trial in your workplace remember there’s no substitute for hard work and determination.
