Do You Need Luck?

There is a myth that to succeed, you must be lucky. This hints to us that all good things are the result of chance. Some people are lucky, some aren’t.  

But the truth is, fortune isn’t found in a four leaf clover or at the end of a rainbow. Good luck follows hard work. It may seem that the people who get “all the breaks” do so effortlessly, but when you look deeper, you will find effort, persistence, and determination. 

In other words, “lucky” people create opportunities because they’ve worked hard to get where they are, not because circumstances have magically lined up to give all the lucky breaks.

So often, “lucky breaks” in life have actually come about because you have worked diligently, and often without all the glamour, to achieve your goals.
