    Many study to get a doctorate degree....and end up without a job.
    In this situation, it's the hardest thing and no reward at all. Actually, it's more like an anti-reward. It's like Santa Claus who takes presents.

    Let me put it this way.A hard headed child,when they are won over,will bring more and a greater reward than he or she that you had no trouble with.
    After the rain comes the sunshine,and it is even brighter when you can see why you didn't give up nor give in when your ship finally comes to shore.
    There is no reward in failure.

    I think you are hoping for a faulty philosophy.
    A child who is difficult to train is no better at the subject than one who is naturally inclined to do things and is open to the process. The parent may feel a greater sense of accomplishment but that is their feeling and has nothing to do with the success of the child.

    Someone who struggles to, say, play a musical instrument and overcomes it isn't a better musician than someone who has a natural talent for playing it. The natural musician will often be the better player because they have felt the connection and flow from the beginning.

    Yes, I totally agree.
    As much as the thing is hard, as much as the people who achieve it is less.
    In Economics, any thing has value when it is scarce and vice versa.

    No, I can't agree, if you mean tangible physical rewards, trophies or tributes.

    this is one of those questions that are hard to answer. i think in many cases the answer would be yes but not always. seeing as how "rewarded" is the outcome, i can't completely agree. some times those little things you don't even try to make happen end up being those that reward you the most. good question.

    As a current grad student, I agree with NathanielZhu. If we are talking tangible, physical rewards, hard work is often left unrewarded. However, if we're talking about intangible rewards, personal fulfillment, and satisfaction, I don't think it's possible to measure or generalize. Some people who worked harder for something than most others probably feel prouder of their eventual success. Some are probably just bitter that it took them so much more work than others.
