Luck and Success

Good Essays
Success is just an ongoing process, if you stop trying you will fail, and if you will try ever, you will never fail.

SUCCESS IS THAT OLD ABC- ABILITY, BREAKS AND COURAGE. This is very well said by Charles Luckman, note: his lastname is "Luckman" but he was not very lucky, he has very struggling and terrible life and today he was well known Business and Architect.

So, there is no secret of success, you just have to try hard and hard, but there are many factors, which will be beneficial for you to succeed, they are:
1. Sincerety
2. Discipline
3. Objective
4. Preparation
5. Skills
6. Opportune moments
7. Support of family & friends
8. Knowledge
9. Confidence...etc.

Success is the co-incident of hard-work and soft-luck!

It is a matter of fact that people all want to be successful in life, yet everyone has his own definitions of success and distinct ways to achieve it. Many have come to think that people succeed owing to hard work but luck. From my point of view, I am in t complete agreement with this statement for some reasons as following.

First, it goes without saying that hard work plays an indispensable role in success. Never can you gain anything without making a great effort. For instance, you want a high grade in tomorrow test, then you must burn the midnight oil. Similarly, a peasant will definitely have an abundant harvest after working till late at night throughout the year. “Hard work will pay off”, how often do we hear these words. Clearly, there is no substitute for hard work. No matter how intelligent you are, you can not go places wthout working with a vengeance. As Thomas Edison said, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration”. In fact, according to scientists, working you ass off for 10,000 hours makes you a genius whether you are talented or not. Thus, it is obvious that you succeed by dint of hard work.

Second, luck has no bearing on success. However, some people consider luck a crucial part in

    Success to me is setting personal goals, and following through with them. Whether you achieve your desired result or not, you have succeeded just by trying. "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who's face is marred by dust, sweat, and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew…

    I think John Wooden explains the definition of success very precisely. He tells us that hard work and having enthusiasm are the most important things in pursuing our goals. We will be successful when we make sure that we have done our best to reach our goals. Another important element is that we shouldn’t give up in our life. We shouldn’t be afraid of trying. If we fail we shouldn’t be discourage, but we have to learn from our mistakes and correct them and hold it as an experience. Sometimes the goals that we have, are difficult to reach, but not impossible to pursue.…

    The definition of success defers from person to person. Some believe that being rich is successful, while others may value family beyond fortune. For me, success means that I can do everything I want to do. However, can do something is very different from wanting to do something. Sometimes we have chances of making our dreams come true. But without capability, we can only let chances pass away. It is to say, success in life comes from careful planning more than from only taking risks or chances. Only risks or chances cannot make things happen, like only kindling cannot make fire.…
