Monday Morning Motivator & Some Points to Ponder...

I seem to get enough exercise by just pushing my luck!

Feeling Lucky? Photo by Michael Thornton
Luck can be defended as a force that makes things happen. We can be that force and make things happen if we prepare ourselves for opportunities by doing our research and practice through role modeling; Pay attention to people, events and your surroundings; Follow our gut instincts; and Be engaged with folks while not being afraid to take risks. Finally, expect positive results.

Real estate is definitely a game of luck at times...my philosophy is to work hard and good things will happen, eventually.  The quote made me snort!

Michael, enjoyable post as always.  This Irish girl is all about believing in luck but I think you've made a great point by stating, "things happen if we prepare ourselves for opportunities."  Have an awesome Monday.

It's who you know, ability and timing.  When all three coalesce at the same time your lucky day is inevitable.
