Hard work usually helps. The difference between FM and NM can be many different things. Several of my friends recently made FM and the difference for them was usually an increase in focused study, more directed opening preparation, tactics, playing more, playing with stronger players, analyzing all of their games, etc.
As an NM, I'm sure you already have a much better idea of what it takes to reach FM than 99.9% of the people on this forum.
