Even more thoughts on Success

"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it." - Thomas Jefferson

Maybe somebody would say, "but that quote is about luck, not success."

Well, consider how Jefferson says his luck is achieved; hard work. This sounds more like success than is does luck. Jefferson's quote is similar to what Seneca said. "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." Proverbs says the diligent will prosper and be asked to stand before important men. Looks to me like hard work and diligence is the producer of this luck some call success.
Proverbs 10:24; 12:24; 22:29;
