You Cannot Depend On Luck To Be Successful.

                            You Cannot Depend On Luck To Be Successful.

I am a fortunate person.  At one time or another, I have even called myself lucky.  The best way to describe luck is, getting something that you didn't expect,  Or you gamble and win something that you wasn't sure that you would win.

 I have a different experience and my thoughts have changed regarding luck.  Luck is an idea and it is something that you cannot depend on.  This is the reason that people play the lottery or go to the casino and if they win one time, they will start to spend more money because they think that they are going to "hit it big."

The truth is, luck is a poor man's crutch.  The reason is because a lot of times we are spending money that could be used for something else because we are hoping and wishing that we will win.

 In regards to business, I believe that we sometimes use the same concept, we start a business and just hope that people will come and buy from us or support our business.

  If you use that strategy you are bound to fail.  It takes planning and very hard work to be successful.  You will have to put in a lot of hours and sometimes you may not make a profit at all for a while.  You will have to find ways to promote this business and sometimes you will have to pay money to do this.

Sometimes you will have to work for someone else until your business starts growing and paying off.
You may not even have much time to yourself to enjoy life but if you keep working hard on your business, you will be able to enjoy life later.

  If you want to enjoy a so-called charmed life, you will have to pay your dues.

I am not rich by any means but one day I will be. Most wealthy people don't believe or depend on luck; they make things happen on their own merit. Another thing is, people who are wealthy don't expect people to give them things, they get it for themselves.
