Are you a millionaire? If not, do you want to be a millionaire? Take a moment to consider how your life would change if you were worth $1 million or more. For most people, a million dollars, let alone a few million, or better yet tens of millions of dollars, would likely result in a significant lifestyle change for most people.
If your goal is to amass a net worth of a million dollars or more (including the option of accumulating hundreds of millions of dollars in personal wealth), then you have to first admit that luck plays a role. Bluntly put, you must with your heart and soul embrace the power of luck. All of our fortune and happiness is due to luck – good and bad. The critical role played by luck is something you must first unquestionably (even if it’s begrudgingly) admit if you want to have a solid shot at becoming seriously wealthy.
The way most people think about luck is that it’s when things that are truly beyond their control meaningfully impact their lives. However, it’s more realistic and productive to think of luck as a continuum where you’re able to strongly influence your luck to your financial betterment.
