I am writing an essay and am not sure If I should combine these two sentences with a semi colon or just leave them separate. Please help! (It may take...will be fruitful)

I have found that nothing can be accomplished without hard work. It may take a large amount of persistence but the result is most often the same; work hard and your life will be fruitful. Hold on to every goal you embrace, achieve it and the rest will be history.
