Throughout life, there will be moments when you look at other people and think, “They are so lucky!” Maybe they have a dream job or home, or a great relationship or circle of friends.
It’s true that every single one of us is raised in a different environment, and sometimes we find ourselves in particular situations out of pure circumstance. However, I don’t know anyone who got “lucky” in life without working hard and taking chances in order to pursue their goals.
Do you want that dream career? Don’t spend time envying the person who has it. Spend time building skills and working toward the next step to land that job. Do you wish you had a great relationship? It can’t happen unless you put yourself out there, meet new people, and take chances.
Sitting around and wishing for someone else’s luck is about as productive as crying over spilled milk. Luck happens as a result of taking action, something we all have the power to do.
