|Jeb Bush. Where would he be without his Bush pedigree?|
I doubt if many people would argue that some people seem to have all of the luck in the world while other people can’t seem to find any luck and when they do find luck, it is usually bad luck. It makes you wonder if there is only a finite amount of good luck out there and that luck exists in a zero sum state. That is, when one person is blessed with a double dose of good luck then someone else gets a double dose of bad luck, Zero sum game? I cannot be sure but that's how it seems to work, at least to me.
|Hillary Clinton. Where would she be without hubby Bill?|
With the 2016 U.S. presidential run for the roses heating up, it gives me a lot of fodder to use as examples. We have some of the luckiest people in the world running for the presidential office. Don't get me wrong, most of them have worked their tails off to get where they are today, but some of them have had some help and luck along the way. Most of the current players in the presidential bid war are career politicians, some have earned their own stature through their political life while some had help - they inherited their stature through family, friends, and money. I will not be naming any names since I think most people can figure this out on their own.
|Donald Trump. Would he be selling used cars |
if it weren't for his father? Who knows?
Luck or ability?
For these people, is it more luck or ability? Tell me what you think and then read Light Hidden by Darkness where Seamus Winshell gets a second chance. Read what he does with this second chance, it boggles the mind.
