This is the nature of the human beings to crave for being successful. Therefore, this is critical to seek for the answer of the question: what are the main keys to be successful? Two of the most debated factors, which are mainly considered to be effective to succeed, are being hardworking and lucky. Although one can not overlook the role of being industrious, I believe luck plays a critical role too. In order to be successful, we require being knowledgable and persevering. Although we need to be hardworking because we should be knowledgeable and persevere, we require being lucky sometimes since not all the factors in the world can be managed by people.

One cannot oversee the fact that people should be industrious if they want to succeed in their lives. All the successful persons are knowledgeable people in their own fields. Gathering enough information to be a sagacious man requires spend a great deal of time. Therefore, one should be hardworking to be able to get knowledgeable and consequently successful. Moreover, perseverance is another key characteristics successful people which essentially requires people to be hardworking.

Aside from the points I made above, It deserves a word to mention that being lucky effects successfulness of people. In the prevalent world we are living nowadays, there are so many factors that cannot be handled by people, no matter how much they try to control them by being hardworking. Therefore, although people should try very hard to be successful, some effective factors are inevitably are left to be handled by luck. For instance, a person who is trying to persue his doctorate level education in a long-desired university should work hard to satisfy that university basic requirements. However, to be admitted to the university, it is needed that it needs an open position for a doctorate student in that year which the person is applying. If the university does not need a doctorate student, one cannot enter there, no matter how much he tries. Therefore, in addition to being hardworking, we should be lucky too.

In a word owing to aforementioned causes and elucidations described in the previous paragraphs, it appears to be reasonable to draw the well-founded conclusion that that being a successful person not only requires being industrious, but also needs luck. Success requires energy and time to be spent which necessitates being hardworking. Moreover, because not all the effective factors in the world can be managed by people, we should be lucky too.
