We think, for example of Lionel Messi, as the only guy in the world who dodge the early morning blues to do the routine or break a leg, injured a knee or triumphantly kick the ball to the goal that is why he is a resounding success among the rest. It is as if he is the only one who tried to break a back to success.
Of course not.
He’s not the only one. He’d be full of hot air to think that of all the aspiring footballers in the world he’d be the only one doing the same struggles just to get there.
Nothing really extraordinary. Except for one thing.
We do acknowledge their focus and massive action to be successful. But to think that massive action alone, determination, will do that trick is far sighted. The element of luck is a linchpin that finally connects the person to his endeared success. He was there, just in the right time, right place and right condition when luck opened its door.
Luck plays a big rule.
It’s like when we heard someone hit by a lightning strike, it just so happened that with all the people in the world, he was there when lightning is doing its job. Of all the people, you are in the “right time, right place and perfect condition” where a lightning could strike.
Now, change lightning into luck.
Believe it or not, life cannot be fair or unfair to everyone. However, it just plays favorite sometimes.
If you believe you have put all elements of success in the bag and still not making it there. Try and see, it could be that the element of luck might still be out there in the wild.
