Feeling Lucky?

When was the last time you felt lucky?

Terry Fator, a ventriloquist,  was the 2007 winner of America's Got Talent. He eventually signed a Las Vegas show contract worth $100,000,000.00. (yes, one hundred million, it's not a typo). Many people in their congratulations expressed how lucky he was to have won, claiming it's like winning the lottery. He responded by saying that it was not luck. Luck is when you go out and buy a lottery ticket. He had prepared for that moment for 33 years.

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity - Seneca- Roman philosopher

Are you prepared for the opportunities in front of you? Instead of comparing yourself to someone who is lucky and successful, look at how you can be better at what you do. Opportunities are available every day.

Preparation is a journey until is crosses the road of opportunity.

Don't let luck pass you by!
