This post might confuse some people but, this is something I’ve been wanting to write about but, i always forget it until now. Before i continue, i will like to wish you a happy and successful new week and also, i want to use this opportunity to let you know that i will be turning 25 by this Wednesday which is 18th and, I’m very happy for that. 18th September is my birthday and, i will do a little celebration so, you all are invited to come and celebrate with me :).
So, lets get to the main discussion of today. There has been this popular word or phrase called GOOD LUCK, have you heard that word before? I bet you have :). Again, how many times have you told someone that succeeded in something that…… MAN, YOU’RE VERY LUCKY INDEED? I will like you to answer that on the comment section below and as for me, i can’t remember because, I’ve said that a countless number of times.
This same word comes in many languages. Indians pronounces it as SAUBHAGYA, i don’t know if that’s correct but, I’m sure my Indian friends will tell me :).
Good Luck in Other Languages
French: Bonne chance !
Dutch: Succes! Veel geluk!
German: Viel Glück! Alles Gute!
Latin: Bona fortuna!
Now, i don’t know if those are correct but, correct me if i made a mistake anywhere. So, my question again is…… Does good luck really exist and if yes, does it also apply to blogging?
I know that many people will come up with different answers to this but, in my own opinion, there is a thing as good luck in anything we’re doing but, it all depends. When a man labours under the sun day in and day out and finally, became successful, will you say that he is lucky? Yes, you can call that but, it comes with his hard works. If he has been sitting at one place all day then, would he has become that successful? You might say, why am i asking lots of questions in today’s post but, that’s how it is :).

One can only be lucky when you goes out of his comfort zone and start working hard and then, luck will become the end result of his efforts. You cannot be sitting and sleeping in your house and, expect luck to happen to you which is why they said that……
God created all birds but, he never throw their foods into their nests….. They have to work to get it,
Have you heard of that before? God created all of us to be extra-ordinary successful but, we all have to work our way towards achieving that else, you die of poverty… period.
This word GOOD LUCK always confuse some people but, the truth is that in anything in life, luck will not come to you if you don’t work for it.As a blogger, if you fail to do what you’re supposed to do then, you will not be a successful blogger. If you’ve created your blog and you don’t update and promote it then, it will remain like that. God cannot come and do it for you.
So, what the hell is still holding you? In order to be also addressed as a success, you have to pave way for it, get to work now man. I’ve also heard a quote that says that…..
Things can come to those that wait but, its only the ones left by those who struggles.
Sometime ago, i read a very interesting book named: The Richest Man In Babylon written by George S. Clason and, there was something he said on that book and, I’ve never forgotten it since the past 5 years i read it It says that….
Men of Action are Favoured by the Goddess of Good Luck…
What do you gave to say to that? Do you agree or not? To me, its so true. Good luck is only meant for action takers and now, you need to ask yourself….. Are you really one of the action takers? You alone have an answer to that. If you also want to read the book, let me know on the comment section and, i will email you the soft copy. Maybe, that is what i will give you on my Birthday :).

Ahead of you stretches your future, like a road leading into the distance. Along that road are ambitions you wish to accomplish . . . desires you wish to gratify. To bring your ambitions and desires to fulfilment, you must be willing to put in your best and work hard for it.
So finally, stop thinking that the only reason why someone succeeds is because he is lucky while you’re not, you will only be deceiving yourself so, you need to wake up from that your day dream now and start facing the realities of life. Pat Flynn started blogging since 2008 and since then, he has been working tirelessly so, why won’t he succeed? Same as Spencer Haws and many others.
Therefore, stop complaining and start working now for a better tomorrow, so that you will also be called a lucky man tomorrow :).
Thanks all and, i will be expecting your gifts on my birthday (Wednesday) :).
