GYEB – 9) Success All Boils Down To Luck

Lot of people have it in their heads that success really boils down to being at the right place, at the right time, doing the right things to produce the right results with the right people. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very appealing idea. Seriously, if we were to boil all of life down to just a simple matter of dumb luck, it will simplify life so much. Why? People don’t have to try.
Why do you have to put on your pants to go to work and put in effort? You don’t have to do that because it’s just a question of luck. Either it’s going to happen or it won’t. There’s nothing you can do about it. So the best thing you can hope for is to just sit back and do whatever you’re doing, and just
hope for the best. In other words, you don’t have to change. You don’t have to work, you don’t have to risk anything.

This is the ultimate cop out. You’re basically insulting all the hard work people from all over the world do to better themselves or create better realities for themselves. You have to understand that life is not set in stone. The people you think are very successful now and who seem to have it together may not remain at the top

There are always ambitious people who are trying day after day, week after week, month after month to do whatever it takes or however long it takes to achieve the kind of life they demand from themselves. Ultimately, something has to give. Ultimately, they make it. And to think that this is all luck is really a a big disservice to yourself. The more you believe it, the more you will remain stuck. You just end up contenting yourself with one excuse after another.
