Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
Today's insight was inspired by American poet, essayist, and philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
“Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
Have you ever heard someone describe a successful person as just “lucky?” Of course, we all have. While I am not saying there is no such thing as luck, most of the time success is achieved through hard work. In other words, success is a matter of cause and effect, not simply luck. Keep this reality in mind the next time you pine for more success, or the next time you see someone who has achieved anything worthwhile.
