The “Lucky” Thing is a Faulty Assumption

There is no such phenomenon as the “lucky” thing.

There is preparation.

There is perseverance.

There is prayer.

The "Lucky" Thing

And the putting together of all three of those things, in a fervent, committed, and (this is important) consistent way, leads to the appearance of an event occurring called “lucky.”

The “Lucky” Thing Eliminates Competency as a Factor in Success

We underestimate the role of competency in all of this as well. The fact of the matter is, you have to decide what to focus on, when to focus on it, how hard to focus on it, and when to let it go.

No one can tell you the what, when, and how of competence development.

But, what is clear is that those who develop competency with preparation, perseverance, and prayer succeed wildly beyond those who take a more dilettante based approach to developing anything.

The "Lucky" Thing

The “Lucky” Thing Says Your Work Doesn’t Matter

This principle of work and competency is often underrated, and very often misunderstood.

There is no such phenomenon as “luck.”
