100 Words On: Why Luck Is So Overrated

We tend to give “luck” far too much credit for people’s good fortune. Likewise, we often blame our own personal misfortunes on bad luck. While it’s true that luck is often due to pure chance, more often than not it’s the result of something we actually can control: our mindset. That’s why it’s no coincidence that the “luckiest” people tend to be optimists who are, by nature, more willing to embrace opportunities as they arise, or turn lemons into lemonade.

The bottom line: It’s much smarter to make your own luck than keep your fingers crossed and wait for it.
