Luck VS Opportunity VS Preparation
2500 years ago the popular senator and philosopher Seneca said that, “Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity”
Senaca was right. Luck comes and goes for all people. That is the nature of luck. The major difference between people who are “lucky” and those who are “unlucky” revolves around how they handle opportunity.
Do they recognize opportunity when it presents itself? Are they in a position where they can fully capitalize on the opportunity? Do they have contingencies in case the opportunity goes south?
