"To be successful, you need to have your heart in your business and to have your business in your heart”
. Love that quote by Thomas Watson which I posted on LinkedIn.
A response says what I need is luck instead. So do you need luck or heart to succeed?
“Luck is preparation meeting opportunity“. Says Oprah Winfrey.
Have you been “lucky” enough to be discovered by journalists and magazine editors for interviews on topics you care about?
Have you been “lucky” enough to be found by business radio station looking for candidates to interview on a cause you champion?
I have and I am thankful for all that. Here’s my take:
Where there’s heart, there’s action that will create luck as a by product. Craft Your Opportunity
I believe you need to position yourself well and create you own luck. I don’t think luck happens randomly to anyone. It does seem to happen to those actively working out plans on a consistent basis, waiting for the right moment and opporunity.How Did J.K Rowling Got To Be So Lucky?
Anyone who has read her biography would know the hardship and pain she went through as well as the training and experience she has had prior to being “discovered”. It was not an overnight success but an enduring journey where she she kept working at the thing she is passionate about: writing. That’s where heart meets fate.Time To Get Ready
