Hi, In my life and my friends life, I have seen that none of them have acquired their success very easily. Everyone has to work a lot for their success. There are few who say Success comes with LUCK. Do you agree with this ? Share your thoughts..

What is Luck? A sudden stroke of fortune that you have no idea how it came into being. I don't believe in Luck. whatever comes to you as Luck was deserved by you as the fruits of your actions long back. you need not remember what you did to deserve your luck but you surely deserved it. So, it's always hard work combined with luck(now that you know what I think is luck) . Wish you Luck :-)

Yes. Thats true. Luck is the result of your hard work. What do you say to those , who still says , even to the fruitful result for your hard work, you need luck ? Thanks for your response.

You don't need to convince them. They are in a way right too. The fruits of our previous actions are also required to make the present venture more fruitful. That's how I will say "Maybe you are right. I do need some luck" (thinking about what I believe is luck). :)

I think it takes some of each. To make an analogy, if a farmer prepares the ground that is hard work, and s/he plants the seeds that is work, and weeds around them that is a LOT of work, but then the rain comes and that is partly luck. Irrigation or choosing the right plant for a certain climate is work, but sometimes no matter what, the farmer's crop grows well or it is ruined and that part is luck. However, if the farmer does no work, or does poor work, then no seeds grow at all and no amount of luck will bring a harvest. It is the same with every kind of success.

I agree with this.I believe that hard work is essential to one's success,but luck definitely plays a part in it too.A good example of how luck has something to do with one's success is as follows:last year,I was preparing for the GRE.For more than eight moths I spent 6 to 8hours a day working on it,and when I took some sample tests,my score was very close to perpect.But,when I took the GRE,I only got 1700out of 2400,a score no one would believe.You know what happend?Right on the day of test,I was running a high fever and had a terrible headache.I believe my poor score had everything to do with luck

there's nothing more gratifying than being a success in life. hard work and perseverance and a little bit of luck is the key to success.

Success always comes with hard work, your luck is nothing but the reward for your previous hard work, so work..work.. and work.

I agree totally with you. You need to work to get success. And it is hard. My father became a very successful businessman, but he worked very hard to get there. I also have an uncle the same. He went from nothing to having a lot. But it was a very hard road with a lot of ups and downs. To acheive, you need to work at it. If you didnt, i dont think you have really succeeded. Best wishes to you, senthil

Connecting success and hardwork is not an easy task.But to some great extend success depends on hardwork.In some cases, only hardwork cannot create success.Luck is an important factor in success for some persons.We can see lucky and unluck people arround us and in our family.Some people becomes very rich by winning lotteries.With out any hard work they achieved it.I think every thing is connected with fate.Some force is controlling all our activities and we are only moving according to that force only.We are only just mere instrument in the hand of God.

if you want true success, you have to try in joining some mlm companies, it is another way to gain success.

Even though it is important to have luck I think its more important to be a hard worker because Luck might help you get a job but it wont help you keep it inorder to keep the job you have to be a very hard worker because thats what bosses want from your employees now ofcourse im a hard worker but I wish I had more luck on my side wich I apparantley dont now.
