(Strange topic this – because chance and luck can be used interchangeably in many cases.)
When you stay on course for a longer period of time, you give your luck a greater chance to come into play. This factor is seen at play in most against-the-odds wins, in sports, and in life.
In 2 of the most remarkable wins ever in Cricket, in 2 different formats, in a single calendar year of 2019, Ben Stokes just kept hanging in there even when all seemed lost. He just kept himself in the game – ball after ball, over after over, hour after hour. Probability-wise and precedence-wise, these were lost battles. And the decisive factor in both cases turned out to be luck – but that luck wouldn’t have come into play had he not stuck around. He gave himself the chance to have that luck.
This is as true in financial markets, where the most successful investors say it is not about timing the market, but more about time in the market. If you stay the course and do the right things, you are that much more likely to succeed.
If you are stubborn enough to keep going when nothing seems to go right, you give your luck a chance to come into play and make impossible things happen.
So, hang around, stick around, keep going with your online cat classes, keep giving yourself a chance at more luck!
