My life experiance, though I am only 27, has taught me many times over that those that are prepared...those that truly put in the time, energy, hard work, sacrifice...those are the ones that will cross the path of "luck" most often in life. It's not just about crossing your fingers and hoping for the best!
Benjamin Franklin said, "Diligence is the mother of good luck"
One of the best examples of this I believe is in this Tiger Woods clip below. (And though things have come out now about his personal life, no one can argue that he was diligent when it came to his golf) Watch for the very last second........
The ball literally STOPS just before the hole! But yet, somehow "luck", or "fate", or Tigers "will" makes the ball drop in!
Like i said above, those that prepare will cross the road of luck!
I don't care what you do in life, what your profession is, being prepared will put lifes ball in the hole for use when we need it to if we will just do our part!
The other thing I love about this clip is Tigers willingess to "take a chance". He didn't two putt to be safe!
Irish music artist Bono wrote, "when you stop taking chances you'll stay where you sit, you won't live any longer, but it'll feel like it".
Stop "feeling like it" and do it already!
My reason for this post is to challenge you, as well as myself, to "Capre Diem" or seize the day more often! And in doing so do it with a mind of preparation.
Like this last video here... we will all end up as dandelion fertilizer... what matters is what we do before that day...CARPE DIEM!!!!
