With just a bit of luck...

the harder you work the lucker you get

I am a bit Irish so maybe it's in my blood, but I've always been oddly lucky all my life. I've won more 
giveaways and contests in my life than the average person, all the way from elementary school fundraiser prizes to just last week on a blog contest. It may sound weird but I always get a funny feeling when I'm about to win something. Maybe I should try the lottery more often? Haha!

On another more serious note, I believe the main successes in life that may appear to others as "lucky" are actually the result of hard work and increasing your chances rather than pure luck. Like succeeding at your career or in relationships, there are a lot of things you can do to increase your chances of getting the dream job or finding that special person. You can do extra work outside of your current job to expand your portfolio, you can go to more meet-ups and networking events to expand your connections, you can go to more parties, outdoor clubs and social events to meet more people. 

Not everything you do necessarily guarantees a good outcome, but can prepare you in the best way possible so that you are ready and in a good position to accept a great opportunity (or person) if it comes along. I feel like this is really true of my life as of late and I can't wait to see how it pans out. Hard work counts. Keep working and good things will eventually come.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
