"Intelligence VS Luck" by Keinosuke Miyanaga
Everyone is lucky. It’s whether you see it, how much of it you make, and what you make of it.
Without intelligence, you can’t even recognize luck. And with enough, you learn to generate your own.
Too many smart people don’t look at it this way, but if they did, they’d understand more about what it truly means to be lucky and how to get some. And by smart people, I mean everyone with a working brain.
Dumb luck is an opportunity. If you won the lottery but went broke, you didn’t know what to do with it. And if you knew, you wouldn’t be wasting your money on the lottery to begin with.
There is no luck involved when you can roll the dice as many times as you want. How many opportunities have you passed up? How many opportunities have you not even noticed? How many opportunities have you created for yourself? When’s the last time you asked for one?
We are all capable of luck, and we are all smart. You just need to know how it works if you plan on getting some.
