The great lesson in work ethic is to push beyond the point of first fatigue.

My father was always a hard worker and he never settled for anything less than perfect. He instilled in me and my two brothers a work ethic to finish whatever we started. Dad said, “Don’t just finish it, do it well.”

I can do a lot of things now because of my dad. In a way, I owe my career to his regimented ways. I hated the hard work that I had to do back then, but I think it instilled in me the incredible work ethic that I still have today.

Despite the fact that my dad did not get paid a lot of money to do the jobs that he did, his work ethic was beyond reproach. His standard of ethics, honesty, accountability and responsibility was exemplary, and he instilled those values in me.

No one is born with the work ethic. Perseverance, self-discipline and frustration tolerance – the bases of a solid work ethic – are learned, not innate. It’s up to you, the parent, to instill the difference between wanting and getting, and to teach your child to postpone gratification in order to accomplish and succeed later as an adult.
