Thought for the Week (22/10/12)

by Shireen Avasthi
I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.
 What Jefferson means by this is that 'luck' comes to those who work for it.

People who sit around not working for anything, just hoping they'll get 'lucky' and things will go well for them aren't 'lucky'; they're lazy. People who are truly lucky are those who create their own luck.

'Lucky' people work hard. This is why they are better off than many other people. To the rest of the world it may seem that people like this are insanely 'lucky', but in fact, they have just worked hard enough to create an amazing life that is full of great opportunities.

If 'luck' does in fact exist, it is most definitely attracted to those who work for it and earn it. Have you noticed that the 'luckiest' people you know are those that work for what they want? Maybe you are extremely 'lucky'. If so, this is only because you work hard, and the moment you stop working, your so-called 'luck' will vanish into thin air. The least 'lucky' people in your social circle are the ones who never put effort into the things they do. If you take some time to think this through, I'm sure you'll find that this is all true.

So work a bit harder this week. Put more effort into everything you do. You'll soon find that 'luck' is flying your way ;)
