Sachin Tendulkar has rightly advised the students to work hard and set a realistic and achievable target in life. Students’ primary goal should be to increase the likelihood that they will be one of those remarkable people who achieves greatly and makes a real difference with his or her life. In many instances, they make headlines in the mainstream media. However, such people are not many in the society. Many people still struggle to achieve their goals in life. Others give up, all together, when they attempt without success to achieve their goals. Students must remember that some of the most worthy goals are also the most difficult to achieve. Major accomplishments can take a tremendous amount of time and effort, and it is easy to get discouraged and give up. Sachin has rightly said that the only way he could perform was he focused on every ball and forgot about the fans. Hard work and success go hand in hand because life is designed to be tough. Nothing is offered on a silver platter; which means that people have to keep trying to succeed. In actual sense, there are so many challenges in life that only hardworking people can overcome them. Therefore, it is hard work, and not smart work that breeds success.
