Many people wonder, “How did I get so lucky?” There are three main reasons. They are speaking well, preparing, and getting to know the right person. Luck, in this sense, comes in waves, and good luck can sometimes follow bad. There are ways to make the most out of the good fortune that comes our way. According to the philosopher Eliyahu Goldratt, good luck is the result of preparation and effort. Some other people, however, claim that luck can be a result of bad luck.
