Sheer luck has nothing to do with it.
Maybe it is, but only if we make it something that is ours from the beginning. After all, luck is made by people who know how to work hard, to beat the odds, to shatter the impossible. It is not something given freely. Most of all, it is given to those who deserve it.
All victories have been claimed because of preparation and strategy, in knowing everything you can before embarking on a journey that has no guarantee. When you do this, you have claimed half the victory, and all that is left is to take it to the end of the road, wherever it may be and whenever it may happen.
The same goes with success. Prepare. Do the hard work. Do not shrink from challenges and obstacles. Do not even think about failure. When it happens, face it head on then go at it again. Nothing and no one can stop you if you are determined enough to change your destiny and carve your name among the stars.
Do not be afraid of success. Most people are scared to succeed. Hence, they are afraid to try. They are more worried about succeeding than actually failing. Eliminate this kind of thinking and just follow your dreams. Make them big, grand and wild. Even if you do not precisely land where you wish to be, you will still fall into something great.
Don’t sell yourself short and always look at the bright side of things. Prepare to learn, to try harder and to go to great lengths. Success is always achievable, but first, you have to have a heart and the willingness to leap, even when you have no idea where you will end up at.
