The poor believe that the only type of luck they have is random bad luck
The rich believe that they create their own type of luck which I call Opportunity Luck.
Either way you slice it, becoming rich or poor comes down to luck.
From my research, I have found that luck is a major factor in success:
- 79% of poor people in my study believed wealth came from random good luck and the reason they were poor was due to a lack of random good luck.
- 87% of the wealthy people in my study believed they created their own luck.
I found that the poor created their own bad luck in the form of Detrimental Luck. Their bad habits, bad behaviors, negative thinking and uncontrolled emotions are like apple seeds they plant every day. Eventually those apple seeds sprout, turn into trees and produce rotten fruit.
The rich also created their own form of good luck called Opportunity Luck, according to my research. Their good habits, good behaviors, positive thinking and under control emotions are like apple seeds they plant every day. Eventually those apple seeds sprout, turn into trees and produce delicious fruit.
