Every single day brings the potential of reinvention, and it is a good time to think about its connection with luck.
I listen to the Stoics podcast by Ryan Holiday. This past Monday night, I caught up with his April 19 show, where he explored what Marcus Aurelius asserted about the actual power over circumstance. Simple, really. Good fortune is not luck or the decisions of others, what others do to you or for you, or your perception that you’ve vanquished an enemy or done better than your neighbors. True good fortune is the result of a personal commitment to do our best for and with others, made every day, in every moment. It is taking care with our assumptions about outcomes and containing wild leaps of logic. It is recognizing what is within our sphere of control. [Very important to strategy, by the way.] When I listened to this show, I was staying at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina. The very next morning, I discovered something remarkable in my room. Carved into the frame of the mirror were these words: “Be not simply good, be good for something.” (Henry David Thoreau)
Sometimes, the messages we receive from the universe affirm our goodness and fuel us for what lies ahead.
