Let’s start with the messy journey of life.
The fact that you are reading this means you won the 100 million lottery. Yip thats how many sperms went running the race to create you!
To put that into prospect for you – the chances of winning the lottery (money) is 1 in 14 million – so you being born is almost 6 times less likely than winning the lottery!
So please don’t sit here and say he or she is so lucky to be where they are now.
A few days ago I wrote about stopping and looking around. This is where the “luck” happens.
You see a lot of successful people will tell you they were lucky! Bill Gates will say if he had been in college one year earlier/later Microsoft wouldn’t have happened (well not for him anyway). If you read Richard Branson’s story about chartering a plane being the lucky break for the creation of Virgin Airways he was in the right place at the right time; he was just lucky.
Bullshit. They weren’t there in isolation! The signals where all around them as they were for the others. They were just tuned in enough to do something about it.
Is there such a thing as luck? Sure or 7 billion of us wouldn’t be here! Are some people luckier than others, yes in a certain context.
Believe in yourself and tune in to your world. This is not luck, this is focus and application. The stimuli are all around us. People don’t just come up with brilliant ideas and create the next big company. They tune in to the world and see what is missing and then through problem solving and hard work they solve the problem.
You can’t win the lottery if you don’t have a ticket. Well you have the ticket, so cash it in.
