How to attract good luck to your business like most successful entrepreneurs are doing is the information I will share with you on this page. I will focus on success entrepreneurs like Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase, Larry Izamoje and Robert Kiyosaki.
So you don’t get disappointed, let me inform you in advance that I will not be focusing on luck that comes from winning millions of naira from lottery. At times such luck is more of a curse than a blessing.
Why did I say so? Most people that don’t work hard to prepare properly often lost the wealth if it is handed to them.
Unexpectedly they have the responsibility to manage the wealth they don’t have the skills or experiences to manage properly. After sometime they lost the riches and are sadder now before their found wealth.
No wonder it was noted that most Americans that won millions of dollars from lottery become poor again in less than 5 years.
Here are case studies to buttress my point:
Evelyn Adams won lottery of $5.4 million. In few years she lost everything. Today she’s flat broke.
Wilham Post won $16.2 million jackpot, and within one year was $1 million in debt. Today he lives on $450 monthly stipend.
Sharon Tirabassi won $10 mllion lottery jackpot, and nine years after she was broke. She had to take part-time job to support her kids and pay the rent.
Luke Pittard won $1.3 million lottery jackpot and a year and half later, he was broke and had to take a job with McDonald eatery.
As an entrepreneur, you will always experience ups and downs. That is the time many small business owners allow themselves to be controlled by circumstances and situations. The secret on how to attract good luck to your business and succeed is how you interpret your business challenges.
If you have total confidence that you are going to do well in your business, then whatever ups and down you experience, you will take them as stepping stones to your eventual success.
For better understanding of how to attract good luck to your business, I will like us to reflect on the lives of three personalities that were once in a situation that was formerly regarded as bad luck, but converted it to what people call good luck.
The first person we are reflecting upon in Nigeria CEO news page is Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase, who has affected me and many Nigerians positively with his newspaper - Success Digest Extra.
He said, “When I was about 24 years old and in the Nigerian Army, I was always broke, my salary having being consumed by pools betting. I wanted to be wealthy.
I’ve always had that desire, even at 24. But I did not realize that betting on pools or getting involved in any form of gambling, would bankrupt me, rather than make me rich.”
Those that have listened to him on how he moved from rag to wealth or read the complete story of his life will know he went through many challenges before he attained financial freedom. Yes, by my headline, he is a lucky man.
If you want to learn how to attract good luck to your business, examine Larry Izamoje. He is chairman/CEO, 88.9 Brila FM (Sports Radio), who is also a self-made personality. He went through several ups and downs before he attained his current status.
He had to hawk plantain on the streets of Warri at a point in his life and driving kabukabu in order to make ends meet.
Today, it is history. Many people look upon him either with envy or admiration, and say what a “lucky chap!” Is he not lucky?
In Nigeria CEO news today, our last case study is Robert Kiyosaki, in his book “The CASHFLOW Quadrant,” he narrated his experiences with his wife in the year 1985 before they attained financial freedom.
They were homeless for weeks, until a friend realized their desperate financial situation and offered them a room in her basement, where they lived for nine months.
Despite those trials, they persisted and never lost focus where they are going. Today, people regard them as lucky people.
From the above illustration, you can see how to attract good luck to your business. Life is as you make it. Like electricity it is neutral, you can use it to attract good luck or bad luck to yourself.
You must see problems in business as something you must experience to achieve success. For example, if your desire is to get to the top of a mountain, you are going to experience some challenges on your way to the top.
But your persistence and confidence in yourself will get you to the top.
