Don't belittle other's effort

It's so funny the way people try to undermine others efforts by saying "he is just lucky". They look at the victory one get and believe it's only possible because of some supernatural forces working for him or her. The word "hard work" and "earn" isn't in their dictionary. When something great happens to another person they try to belittle his effort towards the actualization of that goal by calling him or her a lucky one.

Today, more than ever, we must honour the hustle. The grind. The work it takes to get the job done. A job is a job. In today's society, so many of us rely on some kind of work. Sometimes it's a side hustle or you have a full-on job. But one thing is for sure - hard work gets the job done!

The ingredient of Luck includes; time, money, stress, planning and more many. Take, for example, In real estate, you need to have at least some money saved up to cover your down payment and then a good chunk of change to cover closing costs. In the hundreds of hours I have spent working as a clerk of work, I have learned that building a home takes a lot of time, energy and yes, cash! So when people tell me they know someone who is so lucky to invest in real estate or another venture and makes a lot of money, I want to scream! (Yes, this may be an exaggeration but it is how I feel).

 For most people, the worst thing that they fear is to be called fortunate. It is understandable to fear that word because most people are not aware that it implies that you are lazy. It is an insult where your hard work goes unnoticed. We have all heard people say ‘you are just so lucky’ especially when you have worked so hard for something. We all have heard people say ‘I wish I was in your shoes, ‘it is so easy for you to achieve these things’ sometimes when it comes to inspiration they say ‘these are the people I look up to’, but they are oblivious of the fact that these are the same people who worked very hard for what they have today.

We are all talented in our ways, but when it comes to making money or building a business many think it is only meant for a few. Some will see this as a long shot while others will make it without any sweat at all.

The world tries to undermine your hard work because people can’t see the hard work and sacrifice it takes to build a business, to have good grades, to have a deep understanding of things you know. Imagine if LeBron James, Steve Jobs, Serena Williams, Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Jordan and all the greats worked harder than anyone else in the world and no one knew about it because no one saw them. I can remember watching Ronaldo’s autobiography movie some years back. While in the pool standing his legs were working tirelessly underneath the water. The hours he put into training isn’t known to many. Though I’m not his biggest fan, I respect him a lot and I will never call his success or that of another just luck. We all know there are people out there working harder than you and I but we don’t know about it because we never see their blood sweat and tears, when such people hit it big. 

Truly we all need a little bit of luck or fortune in life, but we need to be in the right place at the right time to get it. Let's say luck is going around looking for someone's house to pitch his tent, do you think it will go to a lazy and idle man? No, it’s the work of your hands that would be blessed. So what are you waiting for? Don’t wait for luck to come to you, initiate luck by getting to work.

To end this, learn to congratulate people without trying to undermine their effort towards achieving something. "Congratulations, you're so lucky" might not be insulting in some context but in another, it might be.

Thanks for Reading!

I normally don't care about what people say, because even if I'm lucky, there must be an input no matter how small it is, God blesses our effort, it's not luck that we applied effort...

It a fact people undermine , saying someone is lucky or fortunate isn't just the value or measure of their success. .. they say it luck just to make themselves feel better that the same luck can fall on them too

Just like with the adage, "don't wait for the perfect moment, make the moment perfect" Some people would just wait for the luck to come when they can actually make things special..luck is not meant to happen, it's the byproduct of our actions.

I 101% agree eith everything you wrote. I always feel weird when I see people congratulationg someone followed with "you're so lucky". I guess it is okay when it pertains to raffles, giveaways or things like than but when it involves something that involves hard work, I think it is insulting to say it is thanks to luck.

Waiting or believing in luck is pointless but there are times when our chances towards opportunities are boosted somehow.

I believe that the effort, relationship, spirituality, and hard work we have put into things have a great influence on them.

I think people attacking luck you other peoples achievement is their way of feeling good about themselves. Hard work and luck are 2 different concepts and its funny how people mix it up.

No o, I've always stated my respect for him. How hardworking he is , but that doesn't make him the best. Deep down everyone knows Messi is the greatest human to ever kick the round leather ball. It's undisputable, some people are still in denial because of club affinity.

You said it very well my friend, it is very interesting to me that this idea of ​​having a chance and questioning the efforts of one person can be seen all over the world and in all countries. It seems that such a reaction to jealousy is the same among all people in the world...

I hate that line "You're just lucky". We all can be lucky if we put our love dedication and faith into it. We all can be successful if we strive to get the goal we want to achieve

Excellent piece, this will go well to answer most questions many Christians are dying in the church in prayers to get answers to. Why will favor or luck come for someone who is not putting in the effort? Luck or favor happened when preparation meets opportunity, and the preparation is the time of gliding you have been putting into your hustle. Most time when I got a good tip here, people say I am lucky, no one cares about the time it takes to dig out relevant information and the sleep you have to deny yourself to complete the write-up. Thank you for this article I enjoyed reading it.

Luck only exists when you have worked very hard to achieve the goal. Demerit others thinking that their achievements are pure luck, it is crazy. He who does not work with the heart never goes far.

People do not see us when we are striving and working hard and they conclude that it is luck. I will also want to chip in something too that when people are praising and congratulating us in a good way, we shouldn't feel it's all about our hard work alone. Yes, you worked hard for it but who made it possible? Like who gave you the strength? Acknowledge God in that area.

I guess luck is just around the corner. With that said, do something in order for that luck to notice you. You just have to move your *ss out. With or without luck, you can always do something to better your life. Make your dreams and aspirations on your own. Nice blog entry @HappyBoy 💕

I personally don’t believe in luck. I sometimes still say ‘lucky you’ if someone wins something, but it’s out of habit. In reality I only believe in effect of work and in the law of attraction. So good work Happy Boy 💙
