It always seems that successful people are just plain lucky. Everything they touch seems to turn into gold. On the surface that may seem to be the case, but in reality they would have had to work very hard before they saw success and may have even failed many times before they succeeded. The path to success is never easy and one must work very hard to get to the destination.
So while successful people are extremely hardworking and that is a characteristic which they all have and value to its full extent the reality also is that hard work alone may not be all you need to become a successful entrepreneur. While it is a necessary ingredient of success, there is more to it. So you can be the most hardworking person on the planet, but if you are not open to new possibilities or new adventures you will not be able to make full use of the opportunities that come your way.
In order to progress and succeed as an entrepreneur, you will have to take the risk of venturing out and experimenting with new ideas and thoughts. Move out from your shell and comfort zone and explore new places and new relationships. Be more open to ideas that come your way, give every idea a chance (at least a moment of your time). Do not cast crazy ideas aside. Because for every door you open, there are more possibilities available. Every experiment you do, whether a failure or a success has a lesson attached to it, which could be useful for future work.
Look at every experience as a learning one, one that stocks your library, arming you with knowledge that would improve you to in a better position than you were before.
So, if you want to understand luck better, then being inherently lucky is a combination of hard work and a positive frame of mind with the ability to see and seize opportunities and not being afraid to try new things.
