Forrest Gump succeeded mostly on dumb luck.
It worked for him.
Things always work in the movies.
The story goes …
If you work hard,
If you always do the right thing,
If you live with integrity,
If you always keep your promises … then …
Good things will happen.
Gumption also relies on hard work,
On doing the right things,
On living with integrity,
And on keeping your promises … but …
Gumption also relies on having goals,
On making a plan,
On executing your plan,
And on bringing others into your plan.
Are you allowing your dreams to be alive?
Are you making and working your plan?
Or are you counting on dumb luck?
