Notes on My Fridge: Success Is...

Notes on My Fridge: Success Is...

Rae Hering

I like to keep little notes on my fridge to help me be mindful and reflective throughout the day. Here's a quote by American humorist Evan Esar that I've been thinking about:

 
This little quote came with a beautiful Judith Bright necklace I got as a present.

I'm mulling over how different, yet connected, the terms success and good fortune are. To me, success conjures notions of hard work and determination to reach a sought-after goal. Good fortune makes me think of happy accidents and favorable circumstances we all wish would fall into our laps. 

Oh, so many times I've been envious of people that just "seem lucky" while I grumble to myself about how I have to pull myself up from my bootstraps and keep my chin up...LOL!! Haven't we all had thoughts like this?? The thing is, hard work and luck go hand in hand; the more perspiration we put into our aspirations, the more lucky breaks we seem to come by.

Now, I've heard some people say they don't believe in luck, or at least that they don't need it. As long as we put the effort in we get results back, right? While I would love to believe that I'm in 100% control of my destiny I think Evan Esar's quote reminds me that that's not entirely true. In fact, the things in life that we can't control are often our most important motivators. Desperation can lead us, albeit painfully, to stumble upon serendipitous inspiration!

Easier said then done, for sure. But I figure with all the times I open my fridge in a day it'll start to sink in :)
