There is a big difference between succeeding in life by being lucky and succeeding in life by being an achiever. You don’t have a choice to be lucky, but you can succeed by achievement.

If a person succeeds in life with absolutely no contribution of his/her in it, then it is Luck – Success without any attitude. Such people are termed “Lucky People”, it is just that they stumbled upon something good accidentally. For instance, winning a lottery.

If a person succeeds in life with passion, talent, hard work and dedication then that is a real achievement – Success that is born out of a positive attitude. Such people are termed “Achievers”, they became what they are purely based on their relentless work. And we have numerous examples of such achievers: a great musician, an athlete, a scientist, an artist, a writer, etc.

There are some who call these real achievers  as “lucky people”. The fact, is that there is nothing about luck here. The person who won the lottery was lucky because he would not have won the lottery if he had spent that money on some thing else or even on some other lottery, and many a times even that lottery was not hand picked by him, but is what the shop keeper gave him randomly.

But when it comes to real achievers, they would have succeeded in life either way. Most people who have talent, and do not succeed, fail because they “give up”. And most people give up when they are so close to achieving. The only thin line between talents who succeed and talents who fail is “giving up”. Those who succeed never give up, and those who fail do.

To say a musician succeeded because he was lucky to have his album become popular, or a novelist succeeded because he was lucky that his novel became popular means nothing. He/she succeeded because people liked what they did. And they would have succeeded in another novel or music album if not in this one. But for the lucky lottery winner, there is no “he would have won another lottery”.

And it is usually those who do not succeed in life because they “give up” too early, who call other true achievers who succeed in life as “lucky people”. To call real achievers lucky is an insult to all their hard work, dedication, passion and talent.

To summarize, lucky people have no creative role in their success nor do they have any contribution of their own in it, apart from doing the right thing at the right time at the right place without even having an iota of knowledge about everything being “right”. While real achievers have a combination of talent, dedication, hard work and passion without which they would have never succeeded. The major difference is lucky people lack confidence, which achievers have in plenty. Lucky people are not aware how they succeeded in life, while achievers are. For a lucky person a repeated success is not guaranteed, but for a real achiever repeated successes are not uncommon.
