Most people with a big idea, great talent and/or something to say don't get lucky at first. Or second. Or even third. It's so easy to conclude that if you're not lucky, you're not good. So persistence becomes an essential element of good, because without persistence, you never get a chance to get lucky.
I have a thing for the concept of luck and the role it plays in our successes and failures. The above sums up how I feel quite well. Another great quote from Seth. He's a smart guy.
P.S. My friend Cassie over at [Witty Title Here] also has an awesome interview series on her blog with super inspiring people who are "lucky" (aka: word hard and persist, persist, persist). You should check that out as well, it's pretty fantastic.
Happy Hump Day!
