“Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work – and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.” -Lucille Ball
I love (not really) hearing people discount other’s accomplishments as LUCK.
As if their hard work and talent didn’t have anything at all to do with it.
While yes, success is sometimes being at the right place at the right time, fortuitous circumstances are not just happenstance. Most of the “overnight success” stories people admire are anything but “overnight.” It takes years of dedication and responsibility and positioning to achieve the level of accomplishments desired in this life.
So if by “luck” you mean “worked my butt of to get here” then, yeah. Some people are fairly lucky.
