There are some people who are always just lucky....

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

I am sure you have heard some people complaining by the water cooler that "some people are always lucky..... I always laughed and smiled when I heard these discussions. My take is I have always been lucky in my life. How lucky am I for being one of those people.


  "...Before anything else, preparation is the key to success..."  Alexander Graham Bell...


Now just to be clear, I have always believed, that luck is the residue of hard work, preparation and the right mindset.


So with that said here is some preparation for our late afternoon early evening dinner.

First the appetizer needed to be purchased, then properly prepared for the hidden flavors...

Then it had to be served to be most attractive to the guest receiving the appetizer.

Needless to say that has been my attitude about anything I did Real Estate or the Military.... wishing you a fantastic week ahead!! Good Luck:))

Hello Endre - the quote on success by Alexander Graham Bell has been a long time favorite of mine.  As for edamame - not so much but I do like tofu so go figure.

Good morning Endre. The more prepared and the harder I worked, the luckier I got. Seems to work that way. Enjoy your day

Hi Endre... that and how people believe there is such a thing as overnight success. Not so much if you ask me! As Branch Rickey said: "luck is the residue of design."

Ron's father was lucky in Las Vegas nine time out of ten.  And in Monaco he had an incredible streak.  And no, he was not a compulsive gambler.  He just had fun.  A

Hello my favorite Beverly Hills Realtor Endre Barath, Jr. I tend to agree with you success comes with word work sometimes being in the right place at the right time may come into play but not without hard work .

Preparation is so important Endre.  You have prepared a beautiful appetizer, but your meaning is loud and clear.

"Are you feeling lucky today?!" 

I do love that quote and truthfully, I LIVE by it! I'm not sure if it was my nursing years or being married to a quadriplegic - everything has to be thought out perfectly. It makes the difference in every single day and in business, every single transaction!

Now, about that Edamame, Endre... That was perfectly planned and presented! I love that bowl - just gorgeous!
