Thank you for sharing. Really supposed to share with us what type of message information.

I would revise that equation to the following: biology + effort + luck = success.

I removed talent because does that even exist? Sure, some people appear to be naturally gifted at something, but I think it's the result of their environment. A great book on this idea is "Talent is Overrated" by Geoff Colvin.

You got a really useful blog. I have been here reading for about an hour. I am a newbie and your success is very much an inspiration for me.

I'd be interested in hearing. The TOS seems rather clear that it is not unless expressly approved by Amazon. I guess if the library got it in writing then they would be ok.

A bird in the hand is worth than two in the bush. we need faith+effort+dedication+luck to be just reall success.

This may happen when an intruder sees a yard sign, a decal sign or any of the installed sensors or video cameras.

I added biology because there are features that make people better at certain dtasks... like being tall in basketball.

Either way, I liked your article. Good stuff!

This is an interesting blog. I totally agree with this post. talent is by birth, hard work you can imply on yourself, where as there is no definition, characteristics or strategies of Luck.

I love your blog. Now I just need the formula for luck and I can be successful.

Luck = Preparation + Opportunity

I'd actually think it to be more like:
(Talent)*(Effort)*(Luck)= Success

Multiplication makes more sense here than addition.
You can have all the talent and effort
-- yet out of luck you will mis-succeed.

I agree - all of my successes were a result of these three components. As Forest Gump would say "Luck Happens"!

I say something similar to my friends, but use "opportunity" instead of luck. We encounter opportunities all the time, but few people really jump on them. And some people simply have opportunity denied to them. Would Albert Einstein be the great physicist of history had he been born in Afghanistan? He would have been smart, and maybe successful, but never a famous physicist. Would Michael Jordan be the best basketball player in history had he been born 400 years ago? Of course not.

Kayne West is an interesting example of taking opportunity; by his own admission he can't sing, can't dance, and can barely rap.

And yet, he set himself the goal of being the best entertainer of all time. He is a legendarily hard worker, but I think it is his ability to see and exploit opportunities that others don't see really moves him forward. Who would have stage rushed Taylor Swift? Only Kanye. Talk all you want to about the incident -- that's the point.

So, that’s why I like to focus on opportunity. Sometimes it happens to you, sometimes you make it.

Equation above makes a great deal of sense.

I've often thought of success in this way: Success = dedication + sacrifice. Dedication is the commitment to do whatever it takes to make something work; a not-taking-no-for-an-answer mentality. Sacrifice is giving up what you'd like to do for what needs to be done. For example, you might have to sleep two less hours a night so that you can accomplish more throughout the day.

Success -- the end result -- is ultimately a relative term. However, there are several requirements that must be met in order to get there. Some of them, I'd say, have been mentioned above. Any others?
