Risk Taking and Success

I see people doing great things.

They set the bar higher.

Do the impossible.

But is this due to actual skill? or just dumb luck?

Someone could buy a lottery ticket and win $1 Million on their first try. Is that an act of genius?

Sometimes in the case of successful people, it can be difficult to distinguish if the person has their success as a result of luck, or of skill (or maybe both).

It’s worth keeping in mind though that not all successful people have some crazy talent or skill. They just put themselves in a place to get lucky.

Through all the biographies and stories I have read about successful people achieving great things, I know the following is true.

You can’t get anywhere without taking risks.
