Luck Happens In The Trenches

I was recently reminded of one of my favorite — and most powerful — benefits from living in a creation-based-business.

I was reminded of what happens when you start doing good work. Things start “falling into your lap.”

Years ago, after a solid 7 years of grinding, things started falling into my lap. Unfortunately, I took my foot off the gas and relaxed. The luck began to fade.

Lesson learned.

The key to finding luck is hard work. The key to sustaining luck is keeping your foot on the gas — especially during momentum.

Another 3 years of grinding, things are beginning to fall into my lap once again.

Pedal down!
