Salesforce Professionals: Karma, Luck, Circumstance

Do you feel any of these have played a significant part in where you stand today in your career?

In Malcom Gladwell’s book, Outliers, he mentions success comes from: “a patchwork of lucky breaks and arbitrary advantages”.

Jeff Bezos jokes: “half luck, half good timing, and the rest brains”.

Oprah quotes: “I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky.”

Jack Dorsey previously tweeted: “success is never accidental”.

And the quote list could go on…

Arbitrary, accidental, timing

Preparation, brains, hard work

I imagine we have all had a combination of both.
