    The turtle won the race without working hard. <~~OK

    If a person doesn’t work hard he/she will definitely get what they deserve. <~~pronoun/antecedent error; unclear response: does "work hard" equate good results? or bad results? or what?

    It is like seeing the results of building a house without working hard on it, and building it right. <~~Misplaced comma -- and unclear -- do you mean that the house will be well built? or badly built? or unfinished? or what? Don't leave things like this to your readers to conclude. They are not mindreaders.
