from the Chamber of Commerce Pacesetter
Is there any such thing as luck...the luck of the Irish....You lucky stiff... I never win anything...
Everywhere people seem to have a different view of luck or good fortune.
Here at the Chamber, we believe in good timing, hard work, preparation, effort and persistence.
We find it amazing how many people who work hard, study diligently, commit to their goals and purpose often have more than their share of 'good luck'.
There is an old saying, "Luck is nothing more than preparation meeting opportunity."
We can't tell you how to prepare, what to study, how hard to work or how long it will take, but we can give you some pointers on how to improve you luck!
Believe in your self, your business, your goals, mission and destiny--for the long haul.
Have the courage to weather the lows and failures when you hit bottom, and the humility and gratitude when you reach the top o' the mountain.
Have a support system of people who care, believe in you and are willing to be there when you need them.
Take action in the right direction--you have to do something--and you have to keep moving in the right direction without worrying about the destination.
