I have been known to come up with quotes from a variety of sources but this one actually came from a fortune cookie gotten after a great Chinese meal (love me some Kung Pao Shrimp!) But this thought has been with me for years now. I have learned that the harder one works, the luckier they seem to get. This particular quote used the word “fanny”, but I don’t ever use that word unless talking to my grandkids when they were toddlers, so I took the liberty of changing it slightly –“Luck is the by product of busting your butt”. Taking the easy way out seldom works out well – work hard and things just seem to turn out better in the long run!
