Luck Versus Hard Work


Luck Versus Hard work
Being an astrologer, I have discovered that destiny plays a far larger role in life outcomes than most people realize but then you may say my views are biased!!!
Generally speaking, successful people really don’t like to explain away their success to destiny or luck. Read or watch television interviews of successful and wealthy people, you may observe most of them attribute their success to hard work rather than to factors like luck or destiny. Do you think a successful and talented person would appreciate destiny or good luck in the knowledge that they were lucky for they were not to have been born in, say, war-torn country? Being born in a favorable environment is an enormous stroke of luck and this stands true even for those who are self-made but there is a tendency to overlook destiny or luck’s importance. I believe, destiny or luck is one of the most underappreciated factors in life. 
Can you say with certainty that the hardest working people you ever met in your life were---Successful? Answer your question with sincerity.
People who work as daily wagers for instance as constructors, cleaners and so many more like them, work every day, from dawn to dusk, for very little money, than any CEO. In our lives, we must have seen same amount of hard work but different course of life happens with so many people and what do we attribute this disparity???? We all owe a great deal to luck/destiny and certainly more than to hard work.
Of course, there is dark side to this belief that only destiny and luck works.  As per Hindu scriptures, destiny is only the result of a sum total of one's own karma. To enhance your chances or probability you need to do karma.
Now, the next question comes to mind--How important is it to reflect upon your success as part of luck or hard work? Success is success so what’s the relevance whether it is acquired through ‘hard work’ or simply being ‘lucky’?
Research studies indicate that when people think of their success as good fortune (luck/destiny!), they become much more willing to contribute to the common good, more generous, charitable, spiritual, humble and public spirited. It is good to take pride in your success but gratitude towards something greater over and above ALL of us brings humility.
If you agree with me give a thumb’s up sign (‘LIKE’) or else enlighten me with your views!!!!

With so many planets moving in retrograde motion life cannot be simple and easy. For you, this would mean balancing the demands of your work with the needs of your family and home. This is a phase when you will be busy with career and public responsibilities. Sudden and unexpected developments may leave you overwhelmed. Sagittarius, I must share this with you, something probably in your subconscious mind, is worrying and stressing you and robbing your present moment of all joy. You may, for some reason, have difficulty going after what you want but outwardly you will be gentle and agreeable, as much as possible. Under the influence of this planetary tide medical help is sometimes required.

If you have your own work, you may during this period bring major changes at work and even diversify, disinvest or assimilate funds. Definitely, coming months are monetarily very important for you. Assuming you concentrate and work proactively, I foresee, over the coming months, you will rise in stature.

It is possible that you may receive a phone call totally out of blue, email or may even make sudden travel plans or start something new. Whatever you do in these months may bring good money gains.

With so many planets moving in retrograde motion, I would not advise you to take big career risks; caution is the word to follow. Your sign is under the influence of Rahu-Ketu, the nodes of Moon, so there is lot of things that you are probably not aware of and things may unfold in totally different manner than what you planned, so avoid taking unnecessary risks, act only and only when you are very sure, say for instance, you want to change the job but leave only when you have the papers for next work in hand. In Vedic astrology, propitiating for troubled planets is believed to bring relief!

Venus gets exalted in your sign and will bring magical improvements in your life. it is time when you will reinvent yourself. Venus is also the planet of beauty, so whether you are a man or a woman, it may suddenly seem important to look good. You may style your hair differently and wear stylish clothes. All outward changes will reflect changes within. Now a word of caution, this month planet Mars will be moving in company of Saturn and that too in its retrograde motion. Retrograde means moving backward. Of course, the planets are not really going backwards only to us here on Earth, it appears to be moving backwards.
