“Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.”
– Ray Kroc.
I’m very much sure so many times you must have heard about how people talk about the most successful businessman in your city.
“He is very lucky enough to fulfill his dreams of business,” they say. Right now they see how successfully he runs his businesses. Success is like a bright source of light. So when they look at his success, it blinds them temporarily. The thing is then they can not see how much he had worked hard in the past to make this happen.
They say diligence is the mother of good fortune. No one succeeds by sheer luck. If you want to succeed, you have to pay the price of hard work too. Once you work hard, success is just around the corner. Then people say you are lucky.
So we can say here safely, luck has three following elements.
The physical part of luck
Physics say work is equal to the force multiplied by distance. Despite applying force, let’s say you don’t move what you want, then the distance is zero. It means that you have done zero work. So you achieve nothing. In other words, you have worked, but you have not worked hard. When you work hard, your body works hard too. Simply put, you need a strong body to work hard and succeed. Once you have a strong body, luck favors you.
The mental part of luck
Similarly, you need a strong mind too to succeed. Why so? Let me explain. When you have a strong mind, then you can have a strong determination that helps you to sustain hard-work for a while. Moreover, for a difficult project, you need to think in advance about it. It’s nothing but planning. With Determination and planning, you move closer to success.
At this point, you have a strong body and mind. And you have strong determination and planning too. Let’s say now you don’t involve yourself emotionally. Simply put, you don’t feel excited at all when you succeed. What will happen then? You’re likely to fail in your effort. Because your emotions give you the main driving force that leads you to good fortune.
So luck favors you when you work hard for your success.
