If I had to pick one word to explain what guarantees success, it would be TIME.
Time. Time. Time!
Put in the time and you’ll get what you want.
In order to get luckier, you don’t have to wish or hope for it to happen, you need to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Here’s how it works.
The more time you dedicate, the luckier you get.
Don’t worry about why it happens this way, just accept that it does.
But, here’s the important question.
Are you willing to give up everything now in order to get everything you want later?
You see, while putting in time is necessary, sacrifice is just as important.
In order to put in time, you’ll need to sacrifice in other areas of your life.
There’s no way around it and it‘s something I often talk about.
A commonality among successful people is a strong work ethic.
This means they dedicate a TON of hours to their craft.
Successful people don’t focus on mistakes they’ve made, how little they know, or any other doubts their mind comes up with.
Instead, they just work non-stop until success arrives at their doorstep.
The only reason they get whatever they want is because they don’t give up.
If you continue pursuing your goal, no matter how little or how much you know, at some point, YOU WILL FIGURE IT OUT!
Did you hear me there?
As long as you keep going, the answer you’re seeking will present itself.
It’ll just click in your mind and you’ll tell yourself: “Wait! Maybe this will work!”
Then, you’ll apply that idea and BOOM!…You succeed.
That’s how it happened for me and anyone else whose gotten “lucky” with success.
Understand that there will be things you’ll be blind to at the beginning.
You have to make mistakes and learn in order to have 20/20 success vision.

…And they ONLY way to do that is by putting in the time.
For every hour of work you dedicate, you accumulate luck.
It might be hard to accept this idea, but it’s REAL.
It’s the reason why successful people get lucky on the regular.
No matter how many mistakes they make, eventually, they get it right.
In other words, eventually, they get lucky.
Sure, the mistakes they make at first can be demotivating.
But, they push through and continue sacrificing and putting in the time.
It’s their work ethic that undeniably makes them luckier.
I once heard something referred to as the law of return.
The way it works is that you get more of what you give.
As an example, the more people you help, the more success you acquire.
The more money you donate, the more of it comes to you.
But, here’s the problem.
Most people quit before allowing luck to appear.
You can’t just help one person and expect to have endless success opportunities come your way.
No, my friend, you have to do it for a LONG time.
It isn’t about how much you give, it’s how often.
Don’t think that by giving the bum on the street a dollar today you’ll wake-up a millionaire tomorrow.
…That’s not how it works.
Helping someone new daily with something small will bring you far more luck than helping just one person with a huge favor today.
You follow me?
Right now, this blog has 300+ articles floating around the internet helping people who find them.
If you work and give more, you get luckier.
The more I practice the luckier I get
So what exactly is working more?
Is it working 24 hours out of the day?
Funny enough, if it were possible, that would be the BEST option.
But, it isn’t.
So, the answer to working more is doing all that you can for each day.
I don’t mean doing all that you feel like doing, or all that you think you can do.
I mean working at every available opportunity.
If you’re watching TV instead of working, you’re NOT doing all that you can.
The more articles I publish, the luckier I seem to get.
How do I continue to publish article after article?
By working at every opportunity I get.
While most people are watching Game of Thrones, I’m writing.
Because of this, more people find me, benefit from my free articles, buy my books, and offer me to write for their website.
Is it because I’m lucky?
But why am I lucky?
Because I put in the time every single day.
There’s a VERY high chance that as you’re reading this article, I’m working on the next one.
Where do you start?
You know you need to work more, but where do you start?
First, you must get as clear as possible with what it is you want.
Don’t tell me “I want to make more money”, that’s NOT a specific goal.
Instead say “I want to earn $100 per day online.”
Once you have your specific goal, you know what comes next, right?
Just like Rihanna says: Work! Work! Work!
Study, learn your craft, and apply as you go.
Little by little, you’ll go figuring out what works and what doesn’t.
It doesn’t matter where you start, it only matters where you end up.
Many people want to find the perfect book that’ll teach them everything necessary.
The best teacher is experience.

Sure, you’ll learn some valuable information in books.
But, to make MASSIVE progress, you’ll need to work, make mistakes, and learn.
I decided to write this article because this quote had a huge impact on me when I first heard it.
The harder I work the luckier I get is a quote by Samuel Goldwyn.
When I began putting the pieces of success together, I realized how accurate it was.
In order for me to get more of what I wanted, all I needed to do was work and give MORE.
I was doing it all wrong in the beginning by trying to find the FASTEST route to success.
Man, I wasted a lot of time.
All I needed to do was work more than average people.
By doing so, I’ve made more progress than 99% of bloggers writing the same time as me.
I started writing in October of 2014.
Since then, I’ve written more than 300 articles and have published 4 eBooks.
I don’t say this to brag, because in all honesty, what you think of me isn’t important.
Your opinion of me isn’t going to add value to your life or mine, so we can both agree that it’s meaningless.
The reason I say this is to make it obvious that working harder brings you more luck.
If you follow my advice and succeed, it makes me a hero.
If you read this article and think I’m cool and successful, nothing happens.
300 articles in only a year in a half is MASSIVE progress.
Most bloggers who’ve been around that long don’t even have 50 articles.
Hell, some don’t even have 20!
Compare my work ethic to theirs and you’ll understand why I’m “lucky” and they’re not.
Are you going to wait for luck or are you going to make it happen?
