Lou Ludwig Success Tips: A Good Example of Luck is . . . .

A Good Example of Luck is . . . .

A Good Example of Luck is . . . .

“I think luck is the sense to recognize an opportunity and

the ability to take advantage of it. The man who can

smile at his breaks and grab his chances gets on.”

Samuel Goldwyn 1882 - 1974, movie executive, producer      


As I see it . . . . . . .

A good example of luck is . . . .


For a person to take the conditions that life hands them . . . . to recognize the opportunity that lies within that condition . . . . Then to use their ability to make the most of the condition . . . . and maximize the opportunity. That person will create their own opportunities . . . . that many people would consider to be luck.


The person that can take on a challenging condition . . . . and find a way to turn it into a positive experience will be seen as being lucky.  But in reality their luck in their attitude . . . . and the hard work to make the most of the conditions that they encounter.


Look for the opportunities . . . . and you will find them. Use your ability to maximize the conditions that you find yourself in . . . . and in time you will be considered being a lucky person.


A good example of luck is . . . . to make the most of the conditions that you find yourself in . . . . and to use your ability to turn them into a positive condition in your life to create a successful outcomes.

Lou, recognizing opportunity goes a long way towards how lucky you are! Enjoy your day!

Not much of a believer in luck, I think you have to work and then you can see opportnities and take them. Once you are a success people just call you lucky and never see all the work you did before.

Hi Lou.  I have never believed in luck.  Though, I do consider myself a very lucky person.

Harder I work, luckier I get, Lou Ludwig - and that's the best example of it.

There was a time in my life where I could say . . . if it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.  My left leg was butchered by an orthopedic surgeon and I couldn't work for 18 months, two surgeries to repair the damage caused, etc.  I was LUCKY to have, some AR folks invite to to their private WP group and I learned a lot in 2011.  But, the "luck" was that I was on AR since 2008 beginning to blog.  I worked hard during a hard time . . . now I feel lucky!
