Life is doing, everything else is just waiting. You have to be open, engaged, and implement. To paraphrase Oliver Wendell Holmes. “To reach the port of success and happiness, you must sail. Sometimes with the wind, sometimes against it. Always sail, never drift nor lie at anchor.”
So, luck, or in reality preparation meeting opportunity, only works if you are flexible and have the scope to face the realization that you have been; procrastinating, preoccupied, not prioritizing, and making excuses, (which in reality is just a well-planned lie,) and not making time to alter your direction and grow. So, meditate on living in the now and being absolutely engaged, open yourself to new opportunities, cultivate a more objective persona, simplify and plan, and adapt as your new mantra, Life is Action.
