Are you Feeling Lucky?

Doesn’t it seem like some people are just more successful than others?  Some small business owners make it big.  Some make it through and sustain a level of success that is just enough to get by.  Many never make it even that far.

I recently read an article talking about the place of luck in this equation.  How much do you think that luck affects your success?  More than posting my thoughts on it, I am really curious about your thoughts.

Here is a quote from an article in Success magazine that got me thinking:

“You can meet the right spouse, but the return on luck is building your marriage. You can meet a great mentor, but the return on luck is investing in the relationship. You can accidentally discover that you have great cycling genetics, but the return on luck is you quit your job and then you train like insanity to win the Iron Man. So there’s no question that my previous view that I’ve been really lucky is true and incomplete, because the other piece of it is that life is about return-on-luck moments and the long, persistent  journey.” –Jim Collins  (http://www.success.com/article/jim-collins-precision-climbing#sthash.q1S6XmZD.dpuf)

Post your thoughts on the role that luck plays in the achievement of success, however you define it.
