    Why is the sentence you've given not simple enough? When does a sentence qualify as simple in your opinion?

    Here is a simpler sentence: "Hard work is the key to success." Also it contains more 'carrot' than 'stick'. Nov 9, 2020 at 14:06

I can kind of see what you are saying since the sentence is compound, you could say "Success comes from hard work, none of it comes from laziness."
