How To Get Lucky In Business and In Life

A noted multi-millionaire said this about where luck meets success:

“It’s about being in the right place,
at the right time, and doing something about it.”

Another notable said:

“Luck is the dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get!”


With that said, how lucky would you say you are? Have you sweated enough online to get to get lucky enough to get the results you wanted?

Now, you can sweat and still not get ideal results. A chubby guy can run a mile and burn a ton of calories and do all the right things. However, it won’t do him much good if he leaves the track and heads straight to McDonald’s afterwards.

The Same Thing Happens Online

You may be working on the wrong things. You may even be sweating away on the right things, but are getting no results from it. For instance, finding the right business model to work in. You may do all of the research, maybe even test the waters by purchasing a few lower-end products in that market or company. However, if you’ve arrived at that opportunity of a lifetime, and you’re now at the right place at the right time, and you don’t DO something about it, then all that sweat is for nothing.

Massive action, continuous work and sweat towards your desired goal, is the great equalizer of success.

    Many stop working on their online dreams because they see no results.

    I love the song so much J. C.!

    Nothing comes without hardwork.

    John, your posts are among the very few ones that are read too carefully and attentively. They are so inspiring. Each time I read them I either learn something new, or it get encouraged to keep up the good work. I knew your blog since several years ago, but I was not used to follow you regularly. Thank God that I found out that I was wrong. I am now of your loyal fans.

    You are absolutely right. Nothing is like working hard continuously and consecutively. I know so many bloggers who were used to follow you here and comment regularly, but I don’t see them anymore. When I check their blogs, they are either offline or going down the hill. It is because they have stop the hard work.

    Thank you :)

    That’s right :
    “It’s about being in the right place,
    at the right time, and doing something about it.”

    Hi John,

    We are creating EVERYTHING on a subconscious level. All life proceeds from within. Lucky appearances are merely the result of aligning yourself with that outcome.

    As for business or life if you want to seem more lucky, align yourself with an awesome cause, create value, intelligently, and make friends with the leaders in your field.

    Take each step to live a magical life.

    Some call me lucky to be living in Fiji for 4 months, in a beach front home with a million dollar view. I laugh, because it’s as if a “luck fairy” plucked me up, when I had 4 pennies in my wallet, and was $50,000 in debt, and placed me here.

    It’s like all of the intelligent, persistent, focused work didn’t exist. I laugh, and have gone beyond the days where I became insulted, because they know no better and I’m not one for taking myself seriously these days.

    Work smart, daily, create value, monetize in alignment with your core customer/reader, make friends with leaders, and your life can become an inspiration for all.

    Signing off from Fiji, JC. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Tweeting in a bit.

    Hi Jon, Luck plays a huge role – but yes it is also about how you react to that lucky break. How many opportunities get wasted because people just let them pass by

    Knowledge and education are the two cornerstones for success, while it comes to controlling what your competitors have done wrong sometimes and learn from their mistakes so you do not do the same.

    Risk plus luck in business will make you on higher side or on bottom side too. If you having good luck then you certainly enjoys happy period of your business but if you luck is going hard then you will be able to face toughest period of your life. The more you take risk in your business the more you will be able to get great results.

    I have been in the internet marketing game for over 6 years now. As of the last couple months, I have been able to raise my income form $200 a month to now $2,000 a month.

    What did I do? I started promoting higher ticket products. Sometimes a small change in what you do can make a huge difference.

    If you are failing or feel like luck is not on your side make sure you take ACTION! Try something new. You never know until you try.
