Robert Stevenson’s Thoughts on the Pursuit of Excellence


How to be Luckier

June 4, 2018

by Robert Stevenson

Some people believe there is no such thing as good luck or bad luck. Other people feel there is luck, but it’s only bad for them. They are the ones who believe, if it weren’t for bad luck, they’d have no luck at all. The famous writer Mark Twain once said ... “Persons who think there is no such thing as luck good or bad are entitled to their opinion, although I think they ought to be shot for it.”



Shortcuts

One of the definitions of the word “shortcut” is, “an accelerated way of doing or achieving something; a shorter alternative route”. But, if you do further research you will find people who will tell you there are no shortcuts to success. People have stated, “When it comes to success, there are no shortcuts.” Others have said,“There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.” Or how about this one: “There are no shortcuts. It takes time to build a better version of you.”



Time to Decide

I am of the opinion, that one of the most powerful words in the English language is “DECIDE.” You’ve heard the saying, “Life is not a matter of chance, it’s a matter of choice.” If you don’t like the way things are going, if you want to change your future, then you need to change your habits. You can either choose to do or not to do anything … YOU DECIDE. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it so profoundly: “The only person you are destined to become, is the person you DECIDE to be.”
