“Luck never made a man wise.”
— Seneca, Letters to Lucilius
We take chances everyday.
Buying a lotto ticket. Sending out a resume. A new restaurant.
And if we’re lucky, that gamble will pay off.
We’ll be rich. We’ll land an interview. The food will be tasty.
I’m going to wager though that the things which are most important don’t require any luck at all – compassion, hard work, friendliness, courtesy, listening, giving, helping, volunteering, openness.
Those are the things we can risk … and win every time.
On a beautiful spring evening, played games with six neighborhood kids and two inflatable dice. I won.
My friend, jeff noel, says, “The harder we work, the luckier we get.” I’m not sure that applies to ALL things in life, but there’s wisdom in it for sure.
Have a really great day! 🙂
Very true … Very true.
