I feel shortcuts can lead us to quicker success but it will be short-lived. Now those who wish to reach at the top quickly can take the route. The short cut route will not guarantee long-term success. One will not be able to hold his position on top for long if the short cut was chosen. Moreover, only a few people will achieve success by skipping things, rest will experience disappointments.
We all need to carry out our part of work irrespective of whether we want to lose weight, build a career, score in an examination or strengthen a relationship. The world may seem a little upside down right now but I feel real success demands hard work and not shortcuts.
NTR is successful in politics and Tollywood also. Within 9 months of starting his party, he came to power. He has done with very good planning and support from media and people. Chiranjeevi also started a party. But there was no planning for an action plan and no support from the media. He has never succeeded in that plan, But he made some by dissolving his party in Congress. If someone considers making money is the success, we can he is successful. But as far as I am concerned he is not as successful as his party couldn't survive for long and not left an impression on the public.
So the definition of success is also very important. Living with good money and having a good family may not be a success. But making a good impression among others and achieving the desired results is the success.
So some people are lucky in this respect and can rise in life just because they have networking and connections.
For others it is only the hard work and sustained efforts which can give success in life.
Knowledge is power.
Getting success through shortcuts may give you something to cheer about, but I can assure you all such achievements are shortlived.
Any success demands hard work and shortcuts will take you nowhere.
You will learn a lot of things in the process of working hard and achieving success, while shortcuts will serve no purpose though it may give you some fame, but in the end proves a big disappointment!
But most of the time, shortcuts don't bring success.
Come on, have a fight. Don't shoot and scoot.
In majority of cases the short cuts will only waste our time without any fruitful results. It is better to follow the usual path of sincere work and efforts.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
" It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not" ... Andre Gide
Think of a guy, who never worked hard and never even completed his studies but suddenly won Rs 50 Lakhs from a lottery. Would you call this a success? People will call him successful if he utilises the money in a wise way by investing in a good business. The same people will call him worthless if he misuses the money.
Think of two men one who toiled throughout the day with his ox to plough the farmland and the other used the tractor to do the same job. The former person worked hard, but the later worked smart to get the desired result. The shortcut to any tiresome job is found when the person finds out the shortest method after going through a lot of hard work. The other persons can always follow that shortcut method, but if they don't have any idea about the whole process they won't be able to move ahead in later stages.

However from my experience of life till this day, I can say that, yes, there is and will be some short cut for success in everything. However I and many like me do not know that shortcut. Hence we are not as successful as we expect or imagine. what success is.
Hence I am content with what I have,what I have achieved till now-though I know that that is not what I could have achieved.To reach your destination fast within a short time, you definitely need a short cut. If someone has reached so in a short time, then definitely he knew the shortcut.
Honest hard work can see that you are not hungry or very poor. But that will not make you everything or everybody you hear as 'successful' and famous.
What is the use of such kind of success? Just take for example the high profile police officers of Bengal who broke their service rule and were present in their uniform at the dharna site of Mamta Banerjee. Maybe they thought to appease the West Bengal Chief Minister and wanted to be in her good book, but now the centre is initiating to take some disciplinary action against them then they will be ultimate losers.
So, why to be in a hurry to get more and more success? It is true that all could not get what they want through sincerity and hard work, but I feel one has to accept it as it comes because honesty has no substitute.
