The tallest tree didn’t grow to become the tallest tree because it was just meant to be the tallest tree.
The tallest tree grew that way because there was no other tree drastically blocking its sunlight, no one came across its path to cut it down and that the surrounding soil was more fertile and it understood how to leverage it for extraordinary growth. It’s lucky. It’s logical. Success in life, including luck can be very logical.
Yes, it can be so logical that your ability/inability of success in life comes from a huge difference of when, how and where we grew up…
You can create and increase luck…
Take for example; if I have a son and at an early age, I give him a chance to travel round the globe (exposure), I expose him to good music (creative intelligence) he learns to speak 5 languages (social leverage) including the emerging Chinese Mandarin (trendy). And then I introduce him to principles, God and reality (depth). I open up his mind (vision), gets him to make connections early in life with other kids of successful parents in his international school (networking), and still allow him mingle with the streets and his village (localization). And then I show him what he can be by getting to be close to a great leader in his field of interest (mentorship), does that give him more chances and luck to succeed?
Think about it.
Don’t ever leave luck to luck.
You can create luck, that’s what successful people do.
Let’s build it… the steps are teachable…
You are lucky to see this or be here. But you become more tangibly lucky by taking it.
