Create your own luck

My step-dad doesn’t say much.

When I was moving to Arizona he strolled out to the car, as I was preparing to go to the airport, cleared his throat, and said, “Create Your Own Luck”. That was the longest sentence he’d ever said to me and the most motivational one also.

I have never been a big believer in luck but I appreciate the sentiment.

I subscribe to the Seneca quote, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”

Don’t sit back and wait for the things you want to just magically appear in your life. Don’t wait for an opportunity to arrive to start working. Get yourself prepared so when the opportunity arises you are ready.  

Luck is created… by YOU.
