There’s no such thing as a lucky break without effort. The only time an incident or a situation becomes a lucky break is if we have first put in the work and effort to take advantage of it. Otherwise, a lucky break is nothing but a missed opportunity.
Without prior effort, a lucky break is just a missed opportunity.
This, of course, is terrible news for anyone who is waiting on the sidelines. Waiting for that big break so they can show up and hope to be seen. While those who make their own luck, don’t wait for the break to show up. Instead, they show up regardless of whether they might be seen or not.
The harder we work, the luckier we get.
So a good rule would be to put your head down and work, put in the effort keep showing up till every situation turns into a lucky break.
