Industry is the mother of prosperity

There is a Sanskrit verse that says that animals do not enter the mouth of a sleeping lion on their own. The lion has to go out and hunt them. Otherwise it will starve and finally die. The word 'industry' in the given proverb refers to the quality of working hard regularly. So what the proverb means is that hard work is the key to success. 

A farmer has to toil under extreme conditions in his field. Only then can he hope to harvest bumper crops. Labourers in a factory have to work efficiently in order to manufacture the goods that, when sold, will reap benefits for all. All prosperous nations have come up by the unfailing and dedicated efforts of their people. There is, indeed, no substitute for hard work, no shortcut to prosperity. It can come only through industry or hard work. In this sense, then, industry is, indeed, the mother of prosperity. 

Good things in life do not just fall into our laps. The sweet fruit of success has to be earned by the sweat of one's brow. No Tata or Birla ever reached where they are by sitting in an easy chair relaxing. Sachin Tendulkar plays well not by mere instinct. Behind his brilliant performance lies a lot of hard work and hours of practice sessions on the field. Actors do not become successful merely on the strength of their or physical appearance. They sweat it out in front of the camera for hours, giving take after take before they finally appear on the screen and charm the public. 

Nothing worthwhile in life can be attained without effort. Everything comes from continuous hard work. And this is something we must all remember if we wish to be successful and happy.
