What makes someone successful?

I think I belive that knowledge and the ability to act is what makes someone successful.

But I also know there is more to it. Like skill, timing, self-discipline, luck, etc. Or wisdom. I love the idea of being wise. I think I said it before, but there is a definition of wisdom that state: “the ability to make constantly good decisions”. In doing so, what can go wrong?

So now, back to what makes someone successful. Knowledge can be attained, the ability to act can be solved by motivation, wisdom comes from doing, skills can be learned, timing can be yours through study if historic cycles, self discipline you just have to man up and do it right, but luckily? How do we get lucky? Well. Let me tell you about the path to luck.

the path to luck

If you want to be luckier, start
seeing all your luck. If you open your eyes, I bet you’ll see a lot more of the things that goes your way every day. If you learn to see and use that luck, you have more of it. If you have more luck you will very likely do better!

Put yourself where luck happens. If you sit by yourself, playing video games or watching TV, you are in a place where there is little room for luck. If you go out and walk around in a neighbourhood where you would like to buy a house, talk to the people living in the area and keep your eyes open. Chances are you might get lucky.

As luck is something that happens outside our control, it might be a good idea to let the things out of our control know what it is we want. You should make sure to let people around you know your goals and ambitions. You should dream about it. You should pray for it.

What do you think about these things? Is it crazy hippie talk to you, or will you try to increase the odds of luck in your life?
