Work or luck?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Leslie Prest, Prest Realty, Sales and Rentals in Payson, AZ

I heard a quote the other day which I really like:

"The harder I work, the luckier I am".

Wow! I like that. I'm a firm believer that focusing your intent and your actions toward a goal helps you reach that goal. I think we create our "luck" far more than most of us WANT to believe. It's easier to blame someone else.

Leslie, great quote, I believe we create our own luck, hard work creates opportunities that can be construed as luck, but it is really hard work

John- thanks for stopping by.

Diane- I hear you. I don't think there's coincidence, either.

Gerry- luck by any other name...

Just one of the many iterations of that saying. Courtesy of my marketing guru, I've found that it's pretty easy to create one's luck if one has a plan to follow.

Leslie - I believe that hard work creates opportunities and blessings with many advantages of doors opening over others.  Luck is for those that do not work hard and occasionally fall into a successful venture.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
