I guess I've heard it for most of my life. People that look at others that are more successful than they and the less-successful person states that the other has acquired their success by luck.
Many times, the less-successful use this as a way to try to make themselves feel better ABOUT themselves for their lack of success. So, it is easier to try to "tear down" someone else's success than it is for them to actually do the work necessary to achieve similar success.
Thomas Edison said, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
Some time ago I did an episode on the idea that OPPORTUNITY does not always knock and that, at times, you must go out and find it. At times it will definitely involve WORK along the way.
Here's a quick bit of advice on this thought: Seek success in the area of something that you enjoy - something that "cries out" YOU and that "work" will not seem like work at all.
And, as you do so, always be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
