Working hard does not guarantee success in life, and does not increase your impact as a leader.
Of course, it's easy to believe that it would because from the time you were young, you heard the messages from your parents and society about the importance of hard work. You were raised to believe that people who work hard are more valuable and you internalized this story, therefore solidifying your path of working hard (long hours, uninspired, mundane tasks, stressed out) and all of the suffering that can come along with this belief.
