I believe luck has a place in success
but I also believe luck can be
‘helped.’

In Creating Wealth,
Robert G. Allen says
“I would rather look upon luck
as a low or high probability of success.
And you can always work
on increasing your probability of success.
If you don’t have the right skills,
you can learn them.
If you aren’t trying hard enough,
you can try harder.
In this way,
you can increase the probability
that luck will smile on you.”

I’ve been looking for someone
to partner with me on a project.
Last week,
I was asked for insight on
a new product
requiring the same skills to develop.

Was it luck?
Yes
but luck helped by years of blogging,
years of helping others,
years of working my a$$ off.
