Others' support vital to achieve goals
Is there really such a thing as good luck? You might probably agree
that some people have more good things happen to them? Let's call that
luck. We all like to get lucky. Though you have no control over luck but
you can increase the probability of luck by increasing your chances
through activities over which you have control. The more opportunities
you create the more chances you get.
It's usually others who bring you luck. You need the support of
others to achieve goals. Friends and family, colleagues, employers and
employees, suppliers and customers. More relationships maximise your
chances. The same probability will offer you more opportunities to get
The stronger you are with knowledge and skills, closer will you be to
Pretending to have strengths you actually don't have will not take
You have to consistently develop strengths and overcome weaknesses.
This will increase your chances of getting lucky. Luck in a big league
is better than luck in a small league. So use all your strengths, get
into the big league and play with a focused mind.
You have to communicate who you are and what you want. Work on your
language and presentation skills. Your use of words, ability to project
and write clearly and simply but forcefully. Others respond to what they
see and hear. You have got to show, be heard and make others feel.
Start every morning by looking in the mirror and saying, "I am smart,
I am successful, I am happy and I can do it". Such affirmations are ways
of planting the seeds of success in your subconscious, helping us to
think positively and to be more prepared for luck.
You have a choice to make; give luck a chance to happen by practicing
these habits and working hard to achieve things or simply do nothing but
wait for luck to come.
You can get lucky every once in a while and find an easy path to
success. But could you maintain that success, or is it a fluke? Will you
repeat it? Once other people learn how you did it, will you find
yourself overloaded with competition?
When you discipline yourself to do what is hard, you gain access to a
realm of results that are denied to everyone else. The willingness to do
what is difficult is like having a key to a special private treasure
The nice thing about hard work is that it's universal and works in
your favour in any situation. It doesn't matter what job you're in -
hard work will definitely produce positive long-term results.
