Luck is a funny thing. Cities have literally been built around this invisible force – from Monte Carlo to Viva Las Vegas.
Whether we roll a perfect dice or escape a near catastrophe, we sometimes say this force played the perfect sidekick role in either sustaining or improving our present well-being.
But is luck even a factor at all if you truly dive down into the abyss of our decisions and their outcomes?
With decision making, luck can be given much more credit than it deserves.
We can often make the mistake of blaming poor decision making on “bad luck”, a scapegoat for sub-par decision making processes.
It is a good idea to rid yourself of the word “luck”.
In life, we must create our own luck and not compliment or blame an invisible force based in uncertainty.
If you do see yourself saying, “why am I having such bad luck on this or that?”, a quick self-audit will help identify the true risk sources that are allowing poor outcomes.
These are the sources that if focused on can replace luck with skill, the result being better decision making that leads to more optimal results.
