Motivational Power Quote

Some People Call it Luck . . . . .

"I think luck is the sense to recognize an opportunity

and the ability to take advantage of it."

Samuel Goldwyn, Movie Executive

  

As I see it . . . . . . .

Some people call it luck  . . . . .

Luck can really described as preparation meeting opportunity.  

One of the first requirements of luck is to put your self in a position to become lucky.   

Go into your day with an attitude of possibilities and your attitude will open your eyes to new thinking, new possibilities and new outcomes.   

Open your mind to see opportunities and they will be there. Too many people are so busy that they fail to open the minds to see what's around them. They rush through life and as they do the opportunities rush by them unseen.  

If you want to bring the luck factor into your life you have to open up your mind that new opportunities exist and are there for you.  Step away from the status quo and think out of the box. Once you open your mind to opportunities you will start to see them and you will recognize their potential.   

Continue to enhance your skills through professional development to stay on the leading edge with your skills. When you recognize the opportunities you will be in the position with your skills to take full advantage of the opportunities.  

It can be said the luck is putting your self in a position to see the opportunities and to being prepared to take full advantage of your opportunities.   

Some people call it luck . . . . . while others call it preparation meeting opportunity and opening your mind  to recognize the opportunities that are around you.

Great food for thought, Lou! I've never been a real fan of the phrase "Good Luck!".  If I do happen to say it I usually follow it with, "Wait! Scratch that! You've got skill & attitude".  :-)

Great advice, Lou.  I do believe in luck, but it doesn't come on it's own.  You need to put yourself out there and open yourself up to it.

My husband & work from home; he's an IT Consutlant & I guess you know what I do.  I often hear under family member's breath.. "must be nice"  but really, do they realize they have the same chance?  I believe in luck, but I also believe in setting goals, committing to do it even when you don't want to, & then writing an action plan to make it happen.  Doing is about baby steps, not just dreaming.

"Preparation meeting opportunity" is a mantra we should all live by! Then we should concentrate on recognizing that very opportunity. Enjoy the day!

Mr. Goldwyn is a smart man Lou! I used to think it was luck when younger but realized there is much more involved, especially learning to see an opportunity and taking advantage of it!

I get mad when people say  "you were so lucky" it is not luck, it is hard work and the right attitude.
