When people succed, it is because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with it. Do you agree or disagree?



The Key to Success

Everyone wants to know what the key to success is. Luck, that special thing everyone wants to have and acquire, may have a big role when coming to success. But is it really luck, or the matter of hard working that really is the cause of succeeding?
Luck may be with you and deliver success to you even if you didn’t earn it, so hard work is the legit key to success.

On the one hand, luck can make a poor man, into a high class mogul. For instance, lets say that im on bankrupt and have relatively no money to pay my rent or my taxes or whatsoever. So all the money I go left, I spent it on lottery ticket, then, out of nowhere, I win. This may seem very unlikely to happen, but its still probable. Thus, with only luck and no hard work, I became successful and spent my money on building my own business.

On the other hand, hard work and determination are imperative if you want to securely succeed. While luck may appear or not, hard working is the safest and honest way because, if you have been consistent with your education, etc, you could be sure that you are going to succed in life. For example, a young man who invests his time on studying and hard working is more likely to be a successful man in the future than a lazy man does.

In summation, luck can help you have tremendous success in life, but also, could ruin your life. Succeeding is all about administrating well your time, money, and above all, how much you put effort and love into it. Being the most secure and effective way to succeed, hard work is the best you can do with your life.

That sentence seems a bit scatterbrained and poorly worded imo.

Succeeding is always a combination of hard work and circumstance actually.


I don't understand the point of the luck example. The example is bland and doesn't demonstrate anything, especially since the last paragraph pretty much concludes that luck and hard work kinda go together. A better example of luck (a very unlikely circumstance) is getting a promotion on short notice or getting a job from a crap resume.

Even then, how can luck ruin your life? It isn't like all the stocks in the stock market are going to drop instantly in short notice and then rise in short notice to screw you over and probably give heaps of luck to someone else. IF stock does decline sharply, you can expect these things, there are lots of signs to tell you to maximise your profit or to cut your losses early.

Luck should only be used for obvious circumstances dependent on probability, like playing casino games. Real life models like stock markets and lottery tickets are extremely vast and hard to predict. A lottery ticket doesn't look complicated but that is because your mind automatically simplifies the probability to what you have and doesn't take into account the other billion tickets other people have.
