I am more convinced than ever we are our own luck. We are the one who gets us to the right place at the right time. At least if we are working toward something.
If we are waiting around until someone comes to help us we might just find ourselves standing in that very same place a year from now.
The nugget of gold at the end of the rainbow is our goal, the one we did or did not lay out a plan for. Either we do obtain the nugget of gold or we don't based on what we did or didn't do.
It is up to us each day to make every effort to work toward our goal. If we move toward our goal daily, eventually we will reach that nugget of gold at the end of the rainbow but it won't be because of the luck of the Irish. It will be because we chose a goal, made a plan and worked that plan.
When we arrive at the nugget, let's pat ourselves on the back and congratulate ourselves for extending the effort every day to accomplish what others just dream about.
