How to manufacture favorable circumstances

You know the saying, ‘it’s about being in the right place at the right time’. Luck is on your side when the stars are aligned putting you in the ‘right place at the right time’. I am tired of waiting for the stars to become aligned, are you?

What is luck anyway?

The dictionary defines luck as a ‘force that makes things happen’. It is about favorable circumstances that present opportunity. But we need to be ready and prepared to seize those opportunities. When we are prepared and the opportunity presents itself, we are said to be “lucky”.

Luck is where opportunity (favorable circumstances) intersects preparedness (readiness). You have probably heard this definition before. The ‘force that makes things happen’ is about the energy to create opportunity and to be prepared.

Do you have the energy to manufacture luck? I suspect so. I know I do. Well, if we have the energy, then the limiting factor to creating luck must be the know-how. Let’s think about this.

A business opportunity could be described as consisting of four elements:

  1. A need (circumstance)
  2. Having a methodology to fulfill that need (intellectual preparedness)
  3. A process to apply the method (delivery preparedness), and...
  4. A capacity to perform (resource preparedness).

Based on this analysis, the only element outside of our control is the need - the needs of our potential customer or client. So luck must center on the need, which is about creating favorable circumstances.

So if we understood the needs of our customers we could create favorable circumstances.

So the next question becomes, how do we find potential customers with - the need?

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you've done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

I tend not to write many responses, however i did a few
searching and wound up here Beyond Luck. And I actually do have 2
questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it appear
like a few of these responses look as if they are coming from
brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of your community
sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
linkedin profile?
Paul Loves Replacing Expensive Protection One Alarm Monitoring commented on 09-Aug-2018 08:16 PM
We have been employing ADT for the past 6 years and assumed I had been handing over too much. Currently there are a handful of high-quality alarm monitoring substitutes to choose from which happen to be basically about half the cost for the matching level of service. Worthwhile investigating in order to save money especially given that some do not require any contract which the big guys require. Shame.
Paul Loves Saving Money On Alarm Monitoring commented on 09-Aug-2018 08:25 PM
We have already been utilizing Protection 1 for the last five years and suspected I was shelling out far too much. There are several excellent home security system monitoring choices to choose from that happen to be practically about half the amount for the equivalent level of service. Really worth considering to save dough certainly because a number of don't require any commitment that the big dealers need. Pity.

Hi. I see that you don't update your blog too often. I know
that writing articles is time consuming and boring.
But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing
content (from article directories or other pages from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new articles are unique and
pass the copyscape test. You should try miftolo's tools
