How to benefit from good luck, or how to create your own

At some point, good luck requires hard work if success is to be sustained.  –James Clear

Some people do get “lucky.” Their first 3 friends all sign up with no hesitation. They meet a successful yet burnt-out business owner who is ready to jump into something new.

However, good luck makes a strong start but won’t propel you across the finish line.

That is encouraging news for the rest of us.

Even the most “lucky” distributor will need to put focused effort into their business, if they want to keep building. Large organizations and increasing residual income require more than a short-term boost. Consistent effort will keep that momentum going.

And consistent effort can do more for an “average” business than someone riding on the story & results of a “good luck” situation.

Also consider this: you can create a burst of “good luck” by doing a burst of activity.

Many high residual income earners talk about this concept. The idea is, to have an established baseline of business-building activities, and for a set amount of time that YOU decide, to do a “sprint” of those activities. Maybe you choose 30 minutes. Or 3 hours. Or 3 days, 3 weeks, 30/60/90 days. And after the sprint, return to the previous level of activity.

Sprints by nature are not sustainable. They use up a lot of energy in a short time, so no one attempts to run full-speed during the majority of a marathon. But a sprint can grab the finish line glory if you do it at the right time.

How being delusional can help you succeed

As a scientifically-trained person, I was taught to ignore or deride “magical thinking” and “positive thinking.” In schoolwork and on the job, only the results mattered– and physics determined those outcomes.

But what if “magical thinking” can help your network marketing career?

Does feeling “lucky” help or hurt success?

Can seeing the situation clearly work against you?

Eric Barker bases his advice on research, and I recommend reading this week’s posting in particular.
