As Luck Would Have It

“As luck would have it, my prospect was in the office when I called.”

“As luck would have it my email got a response.”

“As luck would have it I was able to finish the 5 mile jog.”

At one time or another I’ve heard all of those statements attributing success to luck.

Well, what’s luck have to do with it?

You made the call and deliberated about the best time to dial the phone.

You carefully crafted an email that was well conceived and deserved a reply.

You trained for weeks until your stamina was such that a 5-mile run was very doable.

As luck would have it.

We make our own luck.

We study what will work, train for it and then execute.

And maybe, just maybe, a tiny bit of luck might figure into the equation.

But luck means nothing if you don’t put yourself out there in a meaningful and intelligent way.  Luck equals hard work and effort. Luck means trying and possibly even failing at first. Luck means taking control of what you want to have happen.

Is it time to make yourself lucky?
