Good morning and happy weekend. I hope that you had a fabulous week, I know I did. I have been thinking about a conversation I overheard in the hallway a few weeks ago. I overheard one kid talk to another kid about the Acalympics Leaderboard. He said that the Loggerhead team was lucky, because they scored so many points. I had to kind of giggle at that, because I bet luck had nothing to do with it. But then it dawned on me, maybe people don’t know the secret of how to be lucky. So, WARNING, if you want to believe that luck happens randomly to random people, quit reading this post now! However, if you want to discover the secret to being lucky, and are up for a challenge, keep reading. 😉
I have to be honest with you, I used to agree with Obi Wan Kenobi. Remember when he said “In my experience there is no such thing as luck?

I always thought that, what people perceived as luck, was in all honesty, the effort of work that had been done just in case an opportunity came up. So, that is why I giggled when that kid said the Loggerhead Team was lucky to score so many points. Luck had nothing to do with it, they just worked hard! A personal experience with this is, people told me that I was lucky to have a website. I can not begin to tell you how many hours, I have worked on putting it together. I will tell you I worked on it for over a year, before I got it running. I ran into all kinds of problems, and felt like quitting several times.
However, I came across a quote from our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson. He said “I am a great believer in luck. I find the harder I work, the luckier I am”. I realized, I just discovered the secret to being lucky!
