It wasn’t luck that got him there.
It wasn’t luck when he spent the late nights preparing, or the long years studying. Likewise, it wasn’t luck when he humbled himself as a student and learnt from the giants. Nor was it luck when he picked himself up the tens of times he fell and felt like giving up.
Those who attribute his success to luck and overlook the years of hard work are not willing to put in the work. They say why should I try to be like him because he’s ‘lucky’. Instead, what they should be saying is if I put in the hours, then one day I can be like him.
Stop looking for reasons why you can’t be great and start working for reasons how to be great.
