Opportunity is missed by most people, because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
– Thomas Edison
This amusing quote really appealed to me.
How many times have you heard someone say, “You’re so lucky!” while bemoaning someone else’s success or good fortune? Mostly, that “luck” is simply hard work!
I believe in work before pleasure; partly because that’s how I was raised and partly because it’s just my personality. By working hard you then create your own opportunities; or luck.
But I have to admit, I don’t wear overalls!
