Are You Ready For Some Good Luck?
"If you're waiting on good fortune to smile on you, that first social security check might arrive at your door first."
Our lives are governed by the realities of "cause and effect" and "as we sow, we reap". Therefore, we cannot accept the concept of luck being the reason for someone’s success.
The equation for creating our own "good luck" is:
P + O = GL which stands for Preparation + Opportunity = Good Luck.
Notice it takes both preparation and opportunity to equal the "good luck" we are seeking.
Make a decision now that you won't leave your success up to hope, chance or luck. Understand that over the long run, the skilled person will beat out the unskilled person.
From now on, when you hear someone attribute luck to the success of another individual, you can reflect on how that person has matched their preparations with their opportunities to create their own “good luck” success story.
You can create a lot of "good luck" by simply preparing yourself and being aware of opportunities and then taking action on them.
