I have no Napoleonic dream. I'm just hard-working and pragmatic.
Roman Abramovich - Passions - Work


It is hope in this wider sense which enabled my father to build, from scratch, one of India's largest modern enterprises. His was an undertaking powered by hard work, initiative, self-belief but, above all else, the capacity, as he would often say, "to dream with your eyes wide open".
Anil Ambani - Ambition - Belief - Goals - Commitment - Work

Someone once told me: 'Luck is when opportunity meets preparation'. And that's what I really feel with my music. I've worked really, really hard on it. It was like, 'this is really what I want to do.. what do I have to do to make it work?'
Erica Baxter - Luck - Hard Work - Opportunity
- Passion

The modelling was fun but I don't see it the same as music, because with modelling, I was just kind of lucky, I just fell into it. I got discovered at a train station when I'd just turned 15, I was working full-time by 16, moved overseas and then just kept at it and made it a life. Whereas with my music, I've really struggled through and worked hard, learnt how to write and I've kept developing that.
Erica Baxter - Fun - Lucky - Hard Work


I have never watched property programmes. I watch Property Ladder, because I feel it’s very rude for a director to work very hard on a programme and you can’t be bothered to even watch it. So I do watch it, but I have to turn away when I’m on screen. It’s quite unpleasant seeing myself up there.
Sarah Beeny - Real Estate - Media - Hard Work


I've always worked very, very hard, and the harder I worked, the luckier I got.
Alan Bond - Work - Luck

I was slightly cynical of the American mentality before I came over here, but now I preach it. Here, no one's going to tear you down if you buy yourself a $300,000 car. They're likely to say: "Well, you probably worked hard for it. Good luck to you."
Simon Cowell - Cynical - America - Hard Work - Luck - Success - Cars


My life honestly isn't as weird as people think it is. I work longer hours, maybe I have a bit more money, but fundamentally, I'm not really that different.
Simon Cowell - Hard Work - Money - Weird - Rich - Life


I wish it grew on trees, but it takes hard work to make money.

John H. Johnson - Motivational - Work - Success - Commitment


I really want people to know that I’ve worked hard, very hard, to get to where I am today.. this didn’t just happen overnight. I started in business over 25 years ago and have found a way to build on what I’ve learned through every partnership and opportunity.
Magic Johnson - Hard Work - Patience - Business - Learning - Partnership - Opportunity - Growth - Encouragement

The right to private property meant at the same time the right and duty to be personally concerned about your own well-being, to be personally concerned about your family's income, to be personally concerned about your future. This is hard work.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky - Money - Responsibility - Work


When I started the business, I hardly went home. I became very driven about work and about my career.
Calvin Klein - Business - Hard Work - Career

The key to longevity is to keep doing what you do better than anyone else. We work real hard at that. It's about getting your message out to the consumer. It's about getting their trust, but also getting them excited, again and again. My clothes.. the clothes we make for the runway.. aren't concepts. They go into stores. Our stores. Thankfully, we have lots of them.

Vince Lombardi - Hard Work - Success - Inspirational - Belief


They talk about how hard coaches work. They work 18, 20 hours a day. They sleep on a couch. They don't come home. You know, that's not the hard job. The hard job is a coach's wife, believe me. The job of the coach's wife, she has to be mother, father, driver, doctor, nurse, coach, everything, because the coach is out there working.
John Madden - Jobs - Hard Work
- Family

When you’re really trying to make serious change, you don’t want people to get caught up in emotion because change isn’t emotion. Because change isn't emotion.

I mean, you pull people in with inspiration, but then you have to roll up your sleeves and you’ve got to make sacrifices and you have got to have structure.
Michelle Obama - Change - Inspirational - Emotional - Hard Work - Strategy - Truth - Sacrifice

If the boss is a jerk, get over it. First of all, don’t you think there’s a good chance that your boss’s boss knows what’s going on? If so, just keep your head down and do the work.

It happens all the time.

The only way of making money is for effort. The only time I've ever lost money is when I've purposely said, "I'm doing this to make money." And I've actually on three occasions lost significant sums. I have made wealth when I've actually made a contribution to something, when I've done something I thought I could do better than somebody else or have done something better than somebody else does it.
Kerry Stokes - Losing - Money - Wealth
- Hard Work

The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter.. for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes.
Nikola Tesla - Science - Research -
Ideas - Hope - Hard Work

I am credited with being one of the hardest workers and perhaps I am, if thought is the equivalent of labour, for I have devoted to it almost all of my waking hours. But if work is interpreted to be a definite performance in a specified time according to a rigid rule, then I may be the worst of idlers. Every effort under compulsion demands a sacrifice of life-energy. I never paid such a price. On the contrary, I have thrived on my thoughts.
Nikola Tesla - Hard Work - Thinking - Work - Sacrifice

My belief is firm in a law of compensation. The true rewards are ever in proportion to the labor and sacrifices made. This is one of the reasons why I feel certain that of all my inventions, the Magnifying Transmitter will prove most important and valuable to future generations. I am prompted to this prediction not so much by thoughts of the commercial and industrial revolution which it will surely bring about, but of the humanitarian consequences of the many achievements it makes possible. Considerations of mere utility weigh little in the balance against the higher benefits of civilization.
Nikola Tesla - Hard Work - Industry - Achievement - Humanitarian


I wish to suggest that a man may be very industrious, and yet not spend his time well. There is no more fatal blunderer than he who consumes the greater part of his life getting his living. All great enterprises are self-supporting. The poet, for instance, must sustain his body by his poetry, as a steam planing-mill feeds its boilers with the shavings it makes. You must get your living by loving.
Henry David Thoreau - Life - Hard Work - Love - Career -
Time - Poetry

You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile.
Brian Tracy - Goals - Work - Achievement


We are perfectionists. We are hungry to work all the time. We are entertained by every aspect of business and we never want to stop working.
Suzy Welch - Hard Work
- Business - Passions

It's tough to say, exactly, what things will look like in three to five years, but there's a lot of work to do in just moving along the path that we've already set out.
Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook - Hard Work - Growth - Change
