to always be in the forefront of human thought. For those who understand
the concept of luck, it is a realization that luck has much to do with failure.
That is simply to say that the so-called luckiest people in the world are

their personal growth catalyst. The catalyst of failure (or bad luck) is to
see what went wrong in the past and to make corrections in another attempt,
or another attempt, or another attempt to reach success (that is good luck).

personified through continuous effort.

closes the door to their dreams, the path that has brought them to that
point is clear, and fate's irony is unmistakable."
"Far too often, people like to assume that the majority of success
comes from having luck. I hate to say it especially when so many
people believe it to be true, but it is not a matter of luck that gives you success."
Byron Pulsifer, Success One Word
