How big of a role does luck play as we handle our money? Or does it only come down to our ability to work hard and advance our station by sheer will, focus, and determination? Some individuals out there might feel a little shortchanged if you don’t credit them with their good fortunes. But luck and hard work are two of the hardest ideas to dissociate but that’s what we’re doing today. A proper perspective on the role that luck and hard work play in our lives is really important for a number of reasons that we’ll discuss. And most importantly, it’ll inform us as we’re doing things like setting out to land a new job, spend money more wisely, and invest for our future.
