Giving yourself credit

Every now and then I hear a quote that just resonates with me and makes me think. That’s what happened this morning when I heard this in the audiobook I was listening to:

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

A quick Google search confirmed that everyone has already heard this except for me!

Recently I have had a string of good fortune (professionally speaking) that I had, characteristically, chalked up to luck—being in the right place at the right time. I hadn’t really given myself credit for the fact that I was in a position to take advantage of these opportunities precisely because my past actions and choices had prepared me for it.

The next time this happens to you, remember to give yourself credit.
