Might've been lucky

A few monhs ago, I got to listen to a consultant analyze a corporation's performance and he used a surprising word: luck. He said that perhaps that huge corporation was lucky, they just happened to be in the right place at the right time and voila, they were successful!

It's amazing luck could play a role like that. But maybe it does. If we accept luck plays a role, we have to accept bad luck can affect a company's fortunes, too.

But no matter. Good luck, bad luck or no luck at all, our fortunes depend more on what we do to the various "lucks" we're dealt. Hard work, determination, and a constant restlessness to improve ourselves can overcome bad luck or enhance good luck.
