Dr. Barry Franklin, author of GPS for Success, states that people make their own good luck. Dr. Franklin believes that 95% of things that happen to a person happen because of things that he or she did or did not do. Luck is not involved. It is ultimately your own actions that help you to meet your goals and contribute to your success. Further, putting in a little extra effort and trying to increase your visibility will contribute more to your success than the idea of luck.
