“What Do You Mean by Luck?” - Professor M.S.Rao
“Luck favors the mind that is prepared” - Louis Pasteur
In one of my recent soft skills training program, a participant asked me the question -‘what do you mean by luck’. I explained about it as follows:
There are two forces and factors that must be aligned effectively to achieve success – internal forces and external forces. Internal forces are very much under your control while the external forces are behind your control. People succeed if there are no distractions that arise out of threats from external environment. That means they execute their plans easily as they don’t encounter any distractions in their paths. Some people fail to achieve success as things don’t go as per their plans due to external distractions. Hence, luck is all about proper alignment of internal and external forces. If there is any misalignment, it is known as bad luck. Most people fail due to external forces and distractions rather than internal forces. Hence, you must manage external distractions and align them from time to time with your goals to achieve success in your life. Remember, those who succeed greatly are persistent by nature and such people are a rare breed in this world. Are you the rare breed? If so, you will succeed greatly in your life.
