I’m one of those a-holios who doesn’t believe in luck.
I think you make your luck by being disciplined and doing the right things. Then, chance tends to more often fall in your favor. But, it’s not some ethereal thing you either have or you don’t. It’s driven by how YOU behave.
If luck were a thing, I’d be f!@#ed!
Cuz, I ain’t never got none.
I got a childhood full of horrors to prove that.
Soooo, you can imagine how rustled my jim-jims were when I read this:
“Luck is still a factor tho. Can you imagine how homeless someone like Trump would be if his father never gave him that “‘small loan of a miwwion dollars?'”
And, no not because I give two flying f-bombs about ol’ T-dog.
It’s the attitude.
To sit around and cry about someone else’s life. And, become so fixated on it you inject it into random conversations that have nothing to do with that person. And, it actually starts to infect your thinking.
You start to actually believe this “luck” nonsense.
And, that it’s actually important.
And, that you have no control over it.
Where does it all lead? Most often, it leads to the “infected” sitting around, pissing and moaning about how “unlucky” they are and how all these other people “just got lucky” and if “I’d just gotten what they got…”
Wa wa wa!
Here’s my take…
I find successful people tend to be successful no matter their circumstances. And, unsuccessful people tend to make excuses no matter their circumstances. It comes down to deciding who you want to be.
So, who do YOU want to be?
In any case, take that for what it’s worth.
That’s my “get off my grass” old man rant for the day.
“Now listen here, sonny boy…”
(You know you just read that in old man voice! :D)
Of course, if you’re feeling motivated to take action based on this and web development or freelancing is your thing. Give the ol’ curricky (curriculum) a try. It’s a helluva dead simple way to actually make this happen.
