Gravitate Towards People and Organizations that Appear to Have Good Luck

by seo on October 1, 2009

Career Mission Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes, in a webinar discussed the importance of associating with people or organizations that appear to have good luck.

Throughout the course of your life and career, you will come across two kinds of people or organizations – those that are inclined towards success and those that are not. Tracing the career history of a person, you will clearly notice that an unsuccessful person is one who has invariably gone through several rough patches and can somehow never really pull him/herself up. It’s not that his or her abilities or efforts should be questioned, but there is a certain pattern which runs along, which can be considered as ‘unlucky’. Such a person cannot hold a job for very long; perhaps every organization he or she has ever worked for, for one reason or another ends up having problems of one sort or another; their department gets downsized; their boss gets fired and they get asked to leave as well; may be even his/her employer goes out of business. They are just bad news and you do not need to understand why they have bad luck–just that they do.

One of the keys to your success in your career and life is avoiding the people and organizations that seem to have a never ending streak of bad luck. It’s almost impossible to fathom out the variety of complex and numerous factors that are probably the cause of what appears to be bad luck. However, there is generally no such thing as good and bad luck. The results you achieve in your career are generally related to what you do right or wrong, and how you do everything that you do. This same thing goes for companies. A company will get results generally not because of luck but because of what it is doing right or wrong.

Harrison advised on avoiding the people and organizations that appear to have had bad luck, and doing your best to gravitate towards the people and organizations that appear to have had good luck. If you see this concept and use this career advice you are likely to be successful in everything you undertake.
