Did you ever notice how some people have especially good luck? Things just seem to go their way. Fortuitous circumstances open up like blossoming flowers before them. Their work is chosen above other comparable work.
My friend Hoda islike that. Hoda applied for a job last fall. She didn’t get it. However, a few months later when the position opened up again. Rather than re-posting the job they just called and asked if she was still interested.
People contact Hoda over Facebook or Twitter and ask if they can work with her. It’s not like she’s famous or well connected, but doors seem to open as she passes them by.
Prepare the ground so seeds of success can flourish
The thing about Hoda that I haven’t yet mentioned is that she is also one of the hardest working people I know. She is an artist and a story teller. When she gets home from work, rather than letting what ever is happening on Netflix entertain her, she entertains herself by cultivating her craft. Instead of using her weekends as downtime she pursues her passions.
Hoda doesn’t do these things specifically to get work. Rather, she does them because it makes her feel good about herself. Watching herself and her work evolve is fulfilling and rewarding in and of itself.
Hitch your wagon to a star
When people meet Hoda, they invariably want to work with her. Part of that is because her work is good, but that’s just the beginning. Beyond that they can see she isn’t going to stop doing what she’s doing. Hoda is bound for success. Because Hoda is obviously going places, others want to attach themselves to her to get carried along for the ride.
To someone who doesn’t know what’s going on behind the scenes it might look like Hoda is a magnet for luck. Those of us who know her realize the force behind the magnetism is hard work.
