Working hard is a way of making yourself good and better person for the reason that youll be able to earn your own money. You will not think of any bad or wrong doings just to earn money because you already have your job. Some people do things or crimes because they are force to do so because of their problems in life that concerns money. Most of the poor people because of lack of resources they are able to make a bad way to earn money for their family.

I always believe that the ends doesn't justify the means. All people may have been working towards the same goal, to earn and to survive, but the means of doing such is as important as the ends. If one os working and earning to the expense of other people (like cheating other people or killing), that doesn't prove that he's a good person. He is industrious perhaps, he is hardworking, but he isn't a good person in the truest sense of the word, he is just like all of us, working towards survival.

I don't think that hard work could make a good person. For me a good person is born from the education when he is a young one. However, after the education, if he/she has the sense of work he could not be a bad person.
