Today with shamrocks everywhere I am thinking about luck. Do you believe in luck?  For me, the answer is yes and no.

I believe we make our own luck. We make our own luck by working hard, by producing good work, and by being outgoing. We make our own luck by networking to meet new people and nurturing our business and personal relationships. And we make our own luck by always being ready to talk about ourselves and our latest project in a compelling way. We make our own luck by being open to new possibilities and opportunities. By taking risks and trying new things. 

No matter how it looks from the outside, there is no such thing as an overnight success. People may seem to come out of nowhere and suddenly be at the top of their game, but we don’t see the years of work behind the scenes honing their craft, practicing, and always striving and improving.  That is how we make our own luck.  

Be ready when opportunity knocks, and when it does, be sure to answer the door with a smile.

That’s a picture of my dog, whose name is Lucky and who brings me lots of luck! Wishing you a day filled with luck and joy this St. Patrick’s day.

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow. And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
