Ever wonder why winners always seem to win?
You might think it’s because they have talent or are lucky. It’s not.
I think talent is extremely overrated next to a great, smart work ethic. I’m also certain that—as someone who’s reading this—you’ve heard many “definitions” of the word luck. I’ve actually created my very own (that I’m guessing you haven’t heard):
Luck. Noun. (ˈlək). Working tirelessly behind the scenes before appearing for the final act to deliver magical results; typically viewed by an audience who watches in amazement questioning why they can’t achieve the same simply by attending the show.
Maybe you agree. Perhaps not. One thing I know for certain is that attitude, outlook, and effort have far more to do with happiness and success than talent, gifts, or whatever other biological, inheritable, or divine interventions you can imagine.
