I just want to give a quick apology for not posting over the last week and a half. I have spent a few months posting about luck, luckortunity and how to get lucky and I decided that it is time for me to put it all to work.
Ever since I discovered that you can make your own luck, I have become a luckier person. I see more opportunities because I know how to look for them. I take more little chances because I know I will more likely regret not taking them more than I will regret taking the chance if they failed. I also have a much better outlook on life because I know, no matter what happens, I am in control of how lucky I will get in the future.
Now it is time to put everything together and take the big chance. Like many people out there, I have ideas all the time for new businesses that I can start. I rarely start them because they take a lot of time, effort and startup cost which I don’t usually have available. I finally decided that if I don’t start something up now, I may never start something up. After all, I will never be younger than I am now and the younger you are, the easier it is to take a risk.
I will document the process of starting my business as I go through many steps involved. The idea is still a secret for now but as soon as I am a little further into the process, I will reveal the idea and introduce the business on this site. I will tell you that it is an online service though.
The First Step
The first thing I did was a little research to see if a business like my idea exists anywhere and if it does, can I do it better? As far as I know, my business idea does not exist, at least the way that I want it to.
I looked into the potential for the idea. I don’t want to put all of my effort into a business that has a low cap on how much return I can get on my investment. I want a business that can continue to grow and bring me a bigger return every year.
I planned out the basic site. I wrote down how it would work and designed a preliminary system that will enable the business to succeed. I made notes of what is needed on the site and where everything should fit in.
The next step is finding the right person to design the site and then discussing the structure and functionality with him.
I am a typical person more or less that has always tried to get away with doing the absolute minimum to get by. In school, I did my assignments last minute, I barely passes some of my tests, I crammed for everything and didn't care about retaining any information. I always wanted to be successful and get lucky but my problem was that I thought that luck and chance were synonymous. One day, all that changed when i found out that there was more to "Luck". I learned that it was possible to make your own luck and that people that were "lucky", all had very similar characteristics. I made a conscious decision to become one of those lucky people and the world started to open up. It didn't happen overnight and I'm still not there yet but at least I know what to look for and what to do. Recognizing the opportunities to get lucky is only the beginning of the battle. Now I have to train myself to jump on every opportunity and one day be truly "lucky".
