In order to achieve self development in life there is no such thing as luck. Personally, I know of another term; 'life opportunity.' I do believe that anyone can create and manipulate circumstances in order to improve their lives. You can improvise using the available limited resources at your disposal in an innovative manner so as to come up with results that ensure development of self.
Those who fail to utilize their life opportunities well mostly complain and hence give excuses for their failure. Everyone who was born on this earth has one time or another been given a chance to better themselves and therefore it is upon each one to open their eyes. It does not matter if you were born in the desert or in a palace, self development is attainable.
Your opportunity is provided for you and you must never look at a gift horse in the mouth. All you have to do is to look for your golden chance of self development which most of the time is carefully hidden for you to discover it.
Also realize that sometimes opportunities may come as obstacles on your path. You only have to look carefully, patiently and with undying persistence so as to unravel the puzzle of your destiny. The difference between winners and losers lies in the manner in which they see things. This is because there is a 'secret ingredient' for development of self which the common eye cannot see. Therefore those who cannot grab their opportunities for self development cannot therefore succeed as no mission can exist in absence of a vision.
You should thus work tirelessly until you can improve your life as the solutions to problems always lie close. It is said that you can achieve anything if you want it badly enough. Always do your best in everything that you pursue and never leave anything undone, intending to do it later. You never know; this may be your last chance.
