Make your own luck.
Too many times I hear people exclaim that so and so was so “lucky” to get, receive or attain such and such. Please understand that much of what people claim to be luck is people putting themselves in the right place at the right time. Those lucky people put hard work into their supposed lucky streak. Much of what is seen as luck isn’t luck at all, but just being there ready to do or not do.
Here is number seven on a list of things to improve your chances of being lucky.
7. Be ready.
Seize the moment. If things need to be done and things need to happen make them happen. Some things are lucky just because people took advantage of the moment and it happened. Always be ready for the sale, the promotion, the chance to do what you want to do. Be ever ready to make your luck happen.
