  1. The harder I work, the luckier I get – sounds like a rock song :-)

  2. You really need solid communication skills, flexibility, strong work ethic, acting on opportunities and having a robust network for good fortune to come your way.

  3. Nothing comes easy, but one could get lucky as well, with some determinations and haerd work.

  6. Having luck is similar to having hope; neither are tangible or reliable. “I hope we succeed” or “I hope luck is on our side” are statements we all have said. But, we have to do something, and take action, for luck and hope to be more on our side.

  7. VERY TRUE!
