Hi Tracy. I wanted to follow-up on my previous answer. With all respect to my colleague here, let me clarify MY use of the phrase “good luck.” I don’t use or see “luck” as implying the lack of ability at all. To the contrary, I use this term much more expansively. A long time ago I heard (or read) someone who said that LUCK is where “preparation meets opportunity.” Luck used in this way (which is how I use it) means that being in the right place at the right time is only HALF of the equation! You must also be PREPARED to take advantage of the opportunity. So, preparation, preparation, preparation – so that when the opportunity comes, you’re ready for it!
Keep learning, keep practicing and GOOD LUCK!
