There is this “magic” view on people’s success instilled in people (you?). Most people see luck as this external force we have no control over. Some people are lucky. Other people are not. End of story.
Ask your (average) friends & peers. See what they’ll say. In 99% you’ll get the same POV.
But since you’re in anything but average environment, let’s explore “luck” from different perspective and reframe it.
I call “some people are lucky, other people are not” a complete BS! You with me? Lets go…
People often see a successful experts/owners and assume they got lucky along the way. Sometimes they do, I suppose. Some people do get a helping hand. But for the most part, that’s NOT the case.
Luck doesn’t just happen. You make your own luck, and it’s your MINDSET that leads the way.
Being an expert/owner and believing in “lucky-tale” is dangerous!
There are many challenges faced by experts, true, but luck isn’t one of them. The longer you assume luck plays a role in yours or other people’s success, the longer it will take you to actually build success.
Read that again. Let that sink in.
Believing in Luck deactivates you and your activities. Makes you passive.
The fact is, you have to earn your way. You have to step up and do what other people won’t.
There’s a reason most people work for someone else… it’s easier. Waaaaay easier. Entrepreneurship is hard. It’s great, don’t get me wrong, but it is frigging HARD! You’re always “in the process”. You’re always juggling your focus between fires and opportunities etc.
And luck does not come into it. You earn what you earn, and you create your own luck. Period.
When I see fortune and success, I see someone who made it happen. I see someone who put themselves (deliberately and proactively) into a position where luck and fortune has even the chance to present itself in the first place.
So, go make yourself lucky now. #letsgo
