Internet Success – Does LUCK play a role?
When you read about these kid interpreneurs who are striking it rich, when you hear about these celebrities venturing out to other fields – do you ever say, “what luck they have!”
Yes, I often say that when I read or hear about people who have made it big. And, I say that luck or the lack of, plays a big role in contributing to one’s success. Case in point, you hear about how some of these rap artists have branched out starting their own line of cologne, get these major movie deals, start their own line of clothes, etc., while others who have worked hard, learned to earn – get zilch, nada, zero!
Some of these big time celebrities who put their name on just about anything from a perfume, cologne, restaurant, line of clothes, or what have you, have the LUCK. Don’t get me wrong, they worked hard at it, but sometimes, luck is there when they need it. Some interpreneurs have worked hard to make some kind of profit, some kind of recognition, and some kind of prominence on the net, yet have failed in a matter of months or years. Why is it?
How does one person have the luck, while another doesn’t? What determines that – is it the day you were born? The time of day you were born? The numbers in your social security card? Your name? How the stars were aligned when you were born? What and how is it determined?
Have you tried hitting it big at a casino? While some put in coin after coin, after coin, . . ., others, who do have the luck, simply insert one coin, and hit the jackpot. Why? How? Some who have tried an online or brick and mortar business, can probably attest to these questions I ask. One who has spent his life earnings to start a business online or offline, have put in countless hours at work – yet fail in their venture for a reason. While on the other hand, a kid wearing braces, and carries a pocket calculator, hits the jackpot inventing or creating some type of gizmo for the consumer. Why? How?
There are numerous celebrities and persons who I consider very lucky. I will not disclose them, but I think we all have several names in mind, from movie stars, to athletes, to business professionals, to regular Jane and John Doe’s. Anything they put their name to it – is a success.
There are some big names that are very lucky. Just with their last name, they get on the front page cover of several magazines, they get invited to be a guest on a talk show, make commercials, host a variety of events, etc. – all while being lucky!
In my opinion, internet success can be attributed to two things – hard work and LUCK! Again, I ask the question – Why is it that some have it, while some don’t? Question after question, after question. Some may disagree with me, but after trying several different ventures online and offline, no one, and I mean NO ONE, can change my mind about it! LUCK plays a big role in your life.
