Thomas Jefferson Quote – More Luck For More Work

Thomas Jefferson Quote - More Luck For More Work

“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.”

-Thomas Jefferson

Why yes I did scour through my list of quotes to find one from a founding father for the 4th of July, thanks for noticing!

I think we often get caught up in the fact that other people were just “lucky”, and that’s why they have more money, are more successful, or in other words better off in some way than we are. And to some extent, that can be true (it’s very often about who know), but luck doesn’t really have a whole lot to do with it.

The figures we look up to have worked hard to get where they are, and as Jefferson said, the harder you work, the more luck you will have. If you don’t put yourself out there, if you don’t work towards that goal, you’re never going to be in the right spot to have that lucky star shine down on you.

Happy 4th of July!
