News & Opinion: Good Luck

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:57 PM – Filed under: Personal Development & Human Behavior

Good Luck was written in eight hours, straight through. However, it took us over three years to create it. Some people will only remember the eight hours. Others will only remember the three years. The first ones will believe we were just lucky. The others will believe that we created the conditions for Good Luck. But don't listed to us, listen to the words of George Bernard Shaw: "People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -- George Bernard Shaw Enjoy and let us know how you like it. We will be posting a selection from Good Luck on the Excerpt Blog this week
