Lottery fever has clearly struck many, as the jackpot in the lottery grew to over a HALF-BILLION DOLLARS. That’s a ridiculous amount of money being won on luck, and make no mistake, it is luck. The odds of winning are 1-in-250,000,000.
With those odds it begs the question, what determines how lucky you are? Are you a person of chance who’s hoping to be the lucky lottery winner, or are you the person who makes their own luck?
Read any detailed breakdown, article or book chronicling the traits of highly successful people and they all say that the wealthy don’t believe in luck. The wealthy and successful believe in making their own luck. In fact, the average statistic says that of those living in the top 1%, less than 4% of those actually play the lottery or gamble in casinos.
The truly successful understand that while there may be some element of luck, its usually the result of preparation, hard work and commitment to excellence that creates luck. Its these elements that puts them in front of opportunity, and opportunity is luck created from all the up front work.
Luck isn’t buying a $2 ticket and hoping to win. That’s just foolish. What determines your luck, and more importantly your success, is preparation, is hard committed work, and is your commitment to success long-term.
In life you can either play the game of chance and hope to be lucky, or you can commit to making it happen and create your own opportunity - your own luck.
P.S. If you are blessed to win the lottery, don’t forget to help out those who truly are less fortunate and haven’t been blessed in life.
