In my last post I suggested that making your own luck is possible. And the chances of creating your own luck increase as you play, attempt, participate, and then attempt time and time again.
The example I used was Forrest being discovered as he ran onto the local high school field while the team scrimmaged. The legendary Alabama football coach Bear Bryant was in the stands and noticed Forrest’s blazing speed. Coach Bryant saw talent, potential, and an opportunity for his team.
The Greenbow High team coach only saw Forrest as the local idiot.
Is it a coincidence that one of the greatest coaches of all time was able to see talent while a small-town high school coach missed it?
Why do some see talent and others see only what they’ve always seen?
Are you wearing blinders to talent (and potential opportunities)?
What opportunities are running by you right now?
