Motivational Monday Episode 13- WHAT IS LUCK?

Hello and welcome to exampunditKismat me nahi hoga!’ ‘Iski to kismet hi kharab hai!’ Kismat k aage kisi ka zor nahi chalta’ ‘Hard luck!’

Each one of us must have come across at least one of the above phrases. Sometimes it is from our near and dear ones and sometimes they are the reflections of our own thoughts. So today, let us talk about luck!

When I was younger, I always thought we are rewarded for the amount of work we do, nothing more nothing less. But then, life happened! I gradually understood that everyone is in some or the other way bounded by luck. But, I also learned that luck comes to work only after your work is over. And harder you work, shinier your luck is going to be.

The very famous Oprah Winfrey once quoted, “Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.” I find it very apt for the students like us. If we are prepared to face any exam, the opportunity will be alluring. You only have to execute whatever you have prepared and the luck will be on your side for sure. The ones who are not prepared are often found saying, “Ye waali job kismet mein hi nahi thi.”

Some people seem to be luckier than others. Why? Because they are willing to take chances. They are willing to risk it all out and see what happens. They are prepared for the bad, if it happens. But if they succeed, they are called lucky. Good Luck is just a residue of all your hard work!

Luck is in no one’s hand but the decisions are. If you decide to work hard, you will most definitely overcome hard luck. In case of students like us, we have nothing to lose, then why not count the possibilities in front of us? No day is the lucky day to get started. The day you decide to get started is your lucky day.

As time does not stop for any one and neither is it constant, so isn’t luck. Today might seem to be hard but tomorrow will not be the same. Always remember, luck works only when you do.
