Luck has nothing to do with someone being their own boss or making their home staging business a success. “Luck” is when you win the lottery despite odds of one in 28 million. Of course if you never buy a ticket, you’ll never be that lucky “one.”
Was Sara Blakely lucky to invent Spanx from her apartment and turn $5,000 in savings into a huge success story? Was Sandra Wilson lucky to invent Robeez when she cut up old purses to make baby booties for her son, eventually selling her company for $30.5 million?
Both women were passionate about what they were doing and refused to quit even when others told them, “it will never work.”
Comments like, “You’re so lucky you get to work from home” and “Oh, I wish I was lucky enough to be my own boss” discount the tremendous amount of hard work that goes into making opportunities happen in one’s life.
That mother working from home to be there for her family isn’t just lucky. She has taken risks and invested hundreds of hours of hard work to create that life for herself and her family.
She isn’t doing anything you couldn’t do yourself if you really wanted to.
You can’t waste your life wishing you could fire your boss and go into business for yourself unless you make a move to make that happen.
Being in the right place at the right time can play some part in the success of a business, but it’s commitment, hard work and doing something you’re passion about that will let you make your own “luck” in this world. What are you going to do with your future? Will you leave it to luck, or will you work hard to create the life you want to be living?
