Hard work can come from a keen urge, interest, a desperation, commitment, and concerns, motives (rage and anger). Sometimes it can be really difficult to figure out the reason behind working so hard. At one moment you may think that you want to prove something, at other you may want to achieve something and at another you may be totally unaware, why are you working so hard?
Let’s take an example of a situation in which you have to work hard.
Say you are in love (I am sure most of you have been in one, and others would have thought about it surely). Now let’s analyze this situation. Let’s go stepwise........

4) Either she says yes or no.
5) If yes, you work hard every day to please her, keep her happy and lot of other small things that are really unimportant. Everyone who has faced a yes knows how much hard work they have to do.
You worked hard here, because you have worked hard before and you need to keep up with your reputation.
6) If no, even worse. You work hard every day to forget what has happened and come out of the pain. Again, everyone who has faced a no knows how much hard work they have to do.
You work hard here, because you have committed a mistake and you want to prove that you are strong enough to emerge out from the worst of situations.
7) You love someone again and you work hard because………
