The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.– Vidal Sassoon
This obvious, and need no 2 people to argue about. In the standard term of things, success often comes as a result of hard work. Laying on the sofa doin nothing have never made anyone successful!
However, the definition of work might vary, because sometimes doing something you like might not be seen as work by you, but in fact it is. Like doing sports, reading, playing video games, these can lead to success in their fields or in competitions, but they are often not seen as work. Similarly, hustling, doing due diligence and investing, maybe as a hobby, but still considered work.
Thus you should always put the work before reaping the benefits. As for the quote itself, well Success starts with S, and Work starts with W, thus you will fing the word Success before the word Work if you browse the dictionary in an alphabetical order.
The luck have a role in success, but you can not consider success unless there is work done. If you inherit a million dollars, or win the lottery, or inherit the company from your dad, that’s luck but not success.
