"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the luckier I get."--Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson had more than his share of "luck." An author, a landowner, an inventor, a politician, and, finally, the President of the United States, Jefferson was indeed "lucky." Would luck have smiled so fondly upon him if he hadn't put in the work to make these things happen?
I don't think so.
Jefferson made his own luck by hard work, persistence, and more hard work. He wasn't content to rest after a success but got back to work. This is in contrast to myself, who after experiencing a bit of success wants to sit back and let more success come without putting in the necessary work.
Joy for today: working hard.
