I have friends that tell me that I am lucky because I can travel when I want. I am lucky because I can spend time with my kids. I am lucky because I make good money. My own mother is guilty of saying these things too.
I'm willing to bet that a lot of you look at the "gurus" and think that they are lucky too.
Maybe I am lucky. Maybe the gurus are too. But one thing is for certain, I did not go buy a rabbit's foot to get lucky. I worked my ass off for the last ten years so that things would eventually fall into place... and luckily, they did.
I played poker for a living at one point in my life and poker is just like business... you create your own luck by learning where the opportunities are located and how to get there. You don't learn these things by being lucky. you learn them from studying hard and working hard.
So, I say to all of you... before you call somebody lucky, you should realize that this person is most likely "smart enough to be lucky" and with a lot of effort, you can be too.
