The Most Successful People are not the Most Talented

There is a world of smart talented individuals, but not every single one is successful. Nor are the richest people the smartest, most talented in the world. Research can back this up. A study at the University of Catania determined that while all successful people share traits such as intelligent, hard working, talented, and skilled – they do not stand out amongst the rest of the population as being the best. They blend in. There are plenty of intelligent people who are talented in some way. So what does richness boil down to? Pure luck.

Of course you’ll need intelligence, dedication, and perseverance, but you don’t have to the best to be successful nor can you control your success hence where the luck comes in. Who, what, when, where, and how can all lead you to seize an opportunity. You may not be a lucky person but you can sure manifest luck. The key is to focus on having a positive mindset believing you will be lucky and successful. Here are some things you can do to boost your good fortune…
