TOEFL Essay Topic 10 - When people succeed, it is because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with success." Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position.

Some people belived that they achieved success by their own ability, whereas other people belived that they did it by luck. As for me, I would like to side with the former people. I am willing to discuss it by proposing two main reasons.
First, As for the genuine meaning of the term `success`, luck is not dominant aspect to gain success. What is success? I like to say that success is a great integration of a good motivation, a good procedure, and a good result. That is, success means not only the self-realization or economic abundance, but also enduring endeavor or firm belief. Being a rich man or power man without hard work is never a `success`.
Second, for the social cohesion, I support the former people. If we acknowlede a person who become a rich man by only luck as a successful man, we would loose the moral principle which make our community safe and harmonious. That is because most people are willing to buy lottery or play gambling instead of hard work. `No pain, No gain` is not fallacy.
As for me, I would like to live in a society where there is no luck for success. I belive that hard labor and great endeavor rather than luck is the origin of human happiness and success.
