I'm Up All Night To Get Lucky
Lately I have been given some amazing opportunities, there is so much more to come from me over the next few weeks and months that I am so excited to share with you when the time is right, but the one thing I will never understand is the sentence that I hear, and I'm sure a lot of you guys also hear when a project goes live,
"Oh you are SO lucky"
Oh HELL NO.
Excuse me, but I work DAMN hard to be this lucky, the only way I could be any luckier was if I wanked off a leprechaun and it ejaculated £50 notes in my face.
I AM NOT LUCKY. What I am is a hard worker, (With a wonderful way with words. Apologies for the leprechaun image you now have, dancing around your brain)
Does anyone else feel that the word lucky also implies that it was random, that whatever it was that you have received, achieved or experienced was just down to your name being picked out of a hat and you were the lucky recipient, instead of working hard, being a nice person, showing kindness to others and putting in a bucket load of EFFORT.
Nope, it wasn't that, it was just LUCK. It is quite disheartening sometimes, when someone writes off your hard work as "lucky"
Next time you see someone achieving something, as you type/tweet/text or even say to their face how wonderful they are, think before you type how lucky they are, why not just wish them congratulations, tell them you are happy for them, proud of them even, but please, don't put their hard work down to luck.
Chances are it was hard work, sweat and tears, luck had nothing to do with it.
What do you think about luck, are opportunities luck, or are they the result of hard work? Do you tell people that they are lucky, or do people tell you that you are lucky? How does that make you feel?
Let me know.
