Ruth was an impressive woman. People noticed her. Here is one of the reasons that she got noticed: 

Then Boaz said to his servant who was in charge of the reapers, “Whose young woman is this?” So the servant who was in charge of the reapers answered and said, “It is the young Moabite woman who came back with Naomi from the country of Moab. And she said, ‘Please let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves.’ So she came and has continued from morning until now, though she rested a little in the house.”

– Ruth 2.5–7 

Be willing to work and you will go far in life because a worker impresses people, but try to do as little work as possible and do not be surprised if life does not turn out well.
