Dear Hard Work – Motivational Speech to Make You Keep Going!!!

No matter who you are; if you an entrepreneur a startup or an athlete through hard work and perseverance you will succeed and reach your goals. But Without motivation and determination even the best laid out plans and intentions are not always enough, I found this speech created by Adam Ali fitness trainer which I can relate to.

Dear Hard Work,

I used to hate you,

When you called my name,

I heard it but ran away from you,

When I knew you were coming,

I used to hide from you,

When you influenced others to talk to me,

I quickly made excuses to get away from you.

Afraid of the pain because I didn’t want to get hurt

Afraid to fail, so I didn’t even try

Afraid of the shame that you might put me through and

Afraid of your name because of what you have done to others

Who do you think you are?

Making me so afraid of who you are?

Reflection in the mirror,

Shadow behind me,

I take one step and still,

Your ahead of me,

Sweat on my face, tears in my eyes,

I keep on going,

I heard you tell no lies,

You turn the poor to rich,

F to A’s

Is there anything that you can’t do?

Now look at me,

You made me who I am today,

and because of you,

I have this never losing, never giving up attitude


That is not in my vocabulary

When they quit, I keep going,

When they sleep, I work harder,

When they say that I can’t and count me out, I show them that I can

When I tell them about my dreams,

And they laugh, I make sure I laugh last.

I’m a dream chaser, that means I chase my dreams, and not no one else’s

Only I can defeat me,

It’s me against this work you put on me,

There Is no losing – I will not lose,

I came this far and I’m not stopping now

O Hard work,

My dad was right about you, you do pay off, and because of that I love you.

How can I not?

I’m no longer hiding from you, I’m waiting for you.

Matter of fact, where are you?

I need you, because in hard work- I trust!

(Adam Ali)
