A Question for the Ages: How Much Does Your Success Depend on Luck?

Published on 8/16/2017

Throughout history, fortune has been recognized as a significant factor in life by many civilizations.

So important, in fact, that cultures such as the Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Greeks placed their symbol for it at the head of their alphabet.

So did the Vikings, who took it one step further and designated the first symbol in their runic letterset to denote luck and wealth.

Given my Viking heritage, it's no coincidence that a stylized version of the Fehu rune serves as our Better Life Focus logo.

This is due to my belief that -- sooner or later -- luck will ultimately determine whether or not an e-commerce entrepreneur will be a success.

Not this sorta luck, however:

I'm referring to the type of luck you have an opportunity to manage.

The key is obvious:

Be in position to capitalize immediately on whatever break comes your way.

Here's a classic first-person example:

SEO isn't a quick process, but it's an excellent means of attracting cold traffic. So we do it with our sites. Both Better Life Focus and The The Daily Player now reside on Google's first page for sports snark and better life focus, their respective primary keywords.

Somehow, Bitcoin holders looking for a rare outlet to actually spend their cybercurrency -- instead of continually holding it as an investment -- found that The Daily Player accepted it. Our back-end tools confirmed they came to us directly from a Google search.

Until then, we'd been marketing the site to millennial sports fans and doing quite well with it.

As the new data kept coming, though, we immediately accepted the trend, pounced on our good luck, and began targeting Bitcoin holders who were sports fans.

Our revenues quickly jumped. Around 80% of them are now derived from Bitcoin.

And then, when the Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash fork happened and some Bitcoin holders looked to spend rather than make a decision, we experienced another rush of business.

Moral of the story: We lucked into a niche we'd never considered as a primary target because we'd positioned ourselves to be ready for something like that to occur.

And now, we've never looked back.

What are you doing to be ready when a stroke of luck comes your way?

The Vikings were right. There is a link between luck and wealth.

Better yet, researchers have even found that those who recognize their good luck are much more prone to show gratitude for it by contributing to socially worthy causes.

That, too, is the Viking way, as is written in this runic poem:

Wealth is a consolation to all men Yet much of it must each man give away If glory he desire To gain before his god.

They were right then. Their wisdom is right now.
