"Luck is a tag given by the mediocre to account for the accomplishment of genius." Robert a. Heinlein


Have you ever looked back on something that you achieved and wondered why you were so successful? When you look back at your successes and the things you've achieved in your life and you look for the reasons why you succeeded, you'll find that most often it wasn't just luck.


Some, if not all, of the following were involved:  Knowledge, Skill, Commitment, Motivation, Energy, Confidence, Resilience, and a belief in yourself and  what you were doing.


It’s not hard to see why we succeed. What is hard is explaining why we don't succeed all the time. Quite often people will say, "Oh, that would be too hard for me," or "That would take too much effort." But would it really? Because the truth is that each one of us has a wealth of abilities, energy and skills, but most of the time we only use a fraction of this wealth.

This incredible wealth of untapped resources is called "Human Potential." How much we use of it depends, more than anything else, on our belief system.


If we believe there is no way around a problem, we close our minds to possible solutions. But if we believe we will find a way, then it doesn't matter what obstacles we run into. We get very creative. We see things we wouldn't ordinarily see, and we hang in there and get others to help us until we do find a way.

Remember, the most powerful thing you can do to change your life is to change your beliefs about life and begin to act accordingly.

Right on! Luck is for gamblers but faith is foe believers so the saying goes.

So true Beth. Sometimes its luck and sometimes it is lack of preparation! It is important to keep a positive mindset and success will come to those who is proactive and positive.

This is so great... I love it... when like minded people come and throw a word here and there.. and they are meaningful words that all of us here can write and talk hours about it.. won't you think so?

 

In Lela's  disctionary Luck means (preparedness and readiness) .. have the very best day of your life...

Accountablilty is so important. You have be able to accept your failures and successes. Don't get too high on the things that work great, and don't get too low on the things that don't. I've taken my athletics background and my thought process and adapted them to business. So far, it's working great.
