Opportunity favors the prepared mind

Another way to describe opportunity is luck, chance, or the right set of circumstances. In other words luck favors the prepared mind. To be prepared you’ve got to execute and you’ve got to be persistent.

Have you noticed a pattern with lucky people?

1. They are doers. There’s less talk and more action. They probably get it wrong more than right and the arm chair critics always have something to say. But the critics don’t stop them. I’m sure it’s discouraging to hear the sniping or read the comments – but it’s not paralyzing.

This was theme of the recent Nike “They talk. We Play” campaign. I love it.

2. Lucky people are resilient and don’t take no for an answer. They are persistent

Luck doesn’t come to your house and knock on the door or politely ring the doorbell. Luck is out in wild being discovered by so called “lucky people”. Get out there and stay out there where the luck is.
