Effort versus Luck

“Many an opportunity is lost because a man is out looking for four-leaf clovers.”

~Author Unknown

I don’t know who wrote this, but the phrase means so much. How sad is it that so many of us expect greatness to fall into our laps. That kind of a mindset produces nothing, but disappointment. When did dreams replace hard work?

Let’s be real for a second. We all have dreams, but sleeping doesn’t equal results or fame or fortune. We have to take up our own dreams and work to make them a reality. There are no shortcuts and no four-leaf clovers to make it happen.

What are you doing to make your dreams a reality?
