“Before blaming bad luck for not being able to accomplish your dream, ask yourself if you have actually worked hard enough to deserve it. More often than not, you haven’t. And if you truly have worked hard, figure out where you are going wrong, rectify your faults and resolve to work even harder! Your dream can’t keep running from you forever.”

If success is a Jigsaw puzzle then luck is only one piece of that puzzle. If you are not putting in the hundreds of other pieces right (Belief, persistence, skill, knowledge etc.) right then no matter how lucky you are, your puzzle will always remain unsolved.

“What you lack in terms of luck, you need to make up for through your tenacity.”

“The only lucky charm you need in life is self confidence.”

“People mostly fail because of bad decisions, bad planning and bad execution. But usually, the first thing they blame for their failure is bad luck.”

“There is no man as fortunate as the one who is convinced he will dictate his own fortune.”

“Does luck play a factor in success? Probably. Will that luck be in your favor if you are not prepared to identify opportunities at the right time and don’t follow through with the will to win? Absolutely not.”

“Let’s assume that luck exists and is a multiplying factor to your efforts in achieving your dream. If you have a good luck, obviously the product will be higher as compared to having bad luck. But in school we were taught something, really important. Multiply anything by zero and it results in zero. So what do you think the result of great luck and zero effort shall be?”

“If you have the heart to never give up, a day shall come that even the stroke of luck that evaded you for so long will finally give up and be forced to turn in your favor.”

“Chance favors those who leave nothing to chance.”

“The greatest fortune teller for your life is your own attitude towards it.”

“A fortune teller should make most of his money by winning lotteries. But he won’t, for he knows that his predictions aren’t always accurate. So he does the next best thing and claims to sell accurate predictions to others”.

“Luck is essential for success but no successful person ever relied on luck. Do your best, learn from your mistakes and keep pushing on. When the time is right, things will start working out as long as you don’t stop working on them.”

“Success is a cumulative result of the right passion, right skill, right knowledge, right persistence, right adaptability and a little bit of right luck at the right time.”

“Whenever you get rejected, remind yourself that it is a result of bad luck. But it’s not your bad luck, it’s that of the people who rejected you. Wish them a better luck next time.”

“Certain people put in blood, sweat and tears day after day just to see not a single thing work out. Their “friends” make fun of them behind their back and think they are wasting their time. People make big promises to them only to back out of it at the last moment. Time after time, they come extremely close to their dream when something shatters it yet again. Finally, they make it big and the world says they became successful solely because they were lucky.”

There is a reason why so many people who have a spectacular rise to fame have a fall that is just as spectacular. Being in the right place at the right time or pure luck might help you get to the top. But it is sheer discipline, determination and a persevering nature that helps you stay there.”
