  • isn't.

  • Gentlemen, leave your Campbell untied, Ugo.

  • Yes, you're lucky, but prudence demands that you die.

  • Oh, cameras first and then go about your business.

  • Let me share with you my brush with luck or the lack of it More United Nations, popularly known as M un's our simulations of United Nations conferences involving schoolchildren and require a lot of researching and debating skills.

  • I love being a part of this conference is not that I'm actually hurt them.

  • I feel I am terrible.

  • But watching experienced EMU enters be issued other's throats to prove that their countries right just makes my day.

  • If you've been to an emu in you know what I'm talking about, I'm navigating through Mun is a few times worked hard all the time.

  • The clock has eluded me more often than not.

  • I've been to four onions in my life and for some reason, my m your luck is just the worst to prove that my country's refugee policies were humane of God in Australia.

  • That sense, it's refugees to detention centers and I've gotten Southie Arabia on the topic of capital punishment and judicial administration.

  • Yes, I almost cried during both this time in my school organized its second Mun.

  • I decided to go for a committee in which I wouldn't have to defend the indefensible for country.

  • I decided to choose international press cops rather than the committee with the country.

  • I was a lot of my news agency in early April, which was coincidently the beginning.

  • My new school year, I was going to high school.

  • Great nine.

  • One thing you have to do before an actual Mun conference is to submit a position paper, which is the summary of your country's stand on the given topic.

  • Usually, my grandfather was basically good at everything and has considerable political knowledge.

  • Helps me by giving me really blew it.

  • This time I was clueless as to how to write the stands of a newspaper agency on the topic and decided not to bother my knowledgeable guide as well.

  • So I started to research about my music and see while I was getting used to Grade nine, which made it hard to focus on anything else.

  • And it was high school, so I kept procrastinating.

  • But do not judge me.

  • I am a really hard Boco.

  • I researched days and nights for ambulance and start writing my position papers well in advance before the submission date.

  • This time I didn't feel walking hard, wasn't going in my favor.

  • Or so I thought.

  • OK, so a day before my position paper deadline, I did not have one.

  • So I started to write my position paper that I obviously couldn't finish in time.

  • The message from heaven came, well, it wasn't permanent customer chair saying that the deadline had Bean Post born and extended by two days had Lady Love finally decided to smile.

  • I born Midnight Oil and finish my position paper four hours before the deadline.

  • I knew disposition paper wasn't my best, but I was proud that I had written it on my own without anyone's help and managed to finish a report before the deadline.

  • Well, the 2nd 1 I luckily, ended up winning the award for the best position paper.

  • I wasn't shocked at all, not because I was expecting the award, but because someone had given me the spoiler.

  • But that isn't the point.

  • The point is that luck is a factor.

  • Do I've heard many, many people say that you create your own luck, you control your own lock, or that it doesn't matter.

  • But it does.

  • It is the uncontrollable and indeed intangible factor of success.

  • We seem to ignore the fact that sometimes people really do work hard and still are not successful.

  • It's not because they didn't try hard enough.

  • Maybe it wasn't in the book.

  • Now, with the part about the unspoken part of success remains unspoken.

  • The intangible factor is unspoken about no one talks about it.

  • The stopping is relevant.

  • More so because in this current era of high stress and competition, where nobody can accept failure, people result extreme steps such a suicide once they face rejection.

  • If only they knew.

  • Not every outcome is in their control.

  • The shore is an uncontrollable factor in life.

  • The sooner we accepted, the easier it will be.

  • It is rightly said by James Cleo.

  • Absolute success is luck.

  • Relative success is what this means is that your hard work will take you.

  • Places will give you success.

  • Hard book is something that you can control, but luck is something that you cannot.

  • You may not always be lucky, but you can always work hard if you work hard and have love.

  • Success is guaranteed.

  • If you work hard but don't have a lot of love, success is possible.

  • But if you just sit around waiting for success, success to commit your doorstep, even luck may desert you.

  • Let me make this clear.

  • This is not a discussion about whether we should just sit back, relax and wait for luck or be devastated after we didn't get the results we deserved.

  • No, I'm not in any way saying that hard work is dispensable.

  • What I'm trying to say is that one should not be sad about losing or failing when one knows one has worked hard.

  • So on the other hand, you may get all the lucky breaks in the wall.

  • But unless you take action, deputy useless.

  • So try your best and leave it to the factors beyond your control with a smile just like the museum Captain Kane.

  • Billions in dead in the recently help cricket ball cop, both England and New Zealand equally deserved back the gold, but it was sheer luck that had been in England's direction, their hard work not withstanding.

  • Now, if you still don't believe in the power of flock, here is the headless chicken Mike, the headless Tikhon lived for 18 months after its head and big chopped off.

  • And I'm not making this up.

  • This is the real picture.

  • Now you may credit.

  • This is some biology Miracle of the hard work of the person who did this.

  • Or maybe some amazing technique.

  • But you would have to agree.

  • Every chicken that you behead doesn't become the headless living chicken.

  • This was by fluke.

  • If you were not successful, that doesn't mean you weren't prepared enough.

  • You weren't committed enough or that you did not deserve it.

  • Chance favor The bed minds.

  • Hot book has its place.

  • You should not dwell on things that you can control.

  • But again, don't fell on hard work alone.

  • You will not get the results you deserve.

  • So good luck.

  • All the best.

  • May the odds be ever in your favor.

  • Have you heard this before?

  • What do you think you're loved months mean by this?

  • When they wish you before you embark on an important challenge?

  • No.

  • What difference with this Make?

  • No, this This wouldn't make a difference in your preparation.

  • But it would make a difference.

  • And that difference is huge.

isn't.
