How many of you have heard the saying, you have the “The luck of the Irish. Do you know how that phrase came about? The origins of the ‘luck of the Irish’ saying can be traced back to the late 1800’s in America during the gold and silver rush. At that time, Irish and Irish Americans were some of the most successful miners to prosper and that is how the saying came to be. Let’s dive deeper into that. Was is really luck or was it, hard work, perseverance and persistence? Luck my friends is simply preparation meeting opportunity. And these “LUCKY PEOPLE” were willing to work harder and longer than others. They took menial jobs to survive. The big migration of the Irish to the US was so they could have a better life for their families and not be persecuted for their religion. They clearly were the underdogs coming to America like many other immigrants, no one wanted to give them jobs but they persevered. Now I don’t mean this to be history lesson and I want you to consider how this conversation plays into your daily life. Therefore, my question to you is Are you lucky, persistent and dogged in order to build a better life for yourself and your family? And can we create our own luck? Believe it or not, we can influence our “luck”.
