The Journey to an Educated Me > Posts > We Create our own Luck!!

That phrase is new to me, but is becoming more and more relevant in my life as a PACE student. Prior to this semester beginning I was talking with some fellow students about a math class that I was taking the following semester. The reaction of one student scared me, and had me worried about my fate in the class. I began to worry that I was not good enough to continue on if I didn’t pass the math class, and I began to evaluate options if failure was my fate. But my boss has coined the phrase for me " You make your own luck"!! So I did just that for the math class. I studied hard, stayed on the pace that was set for the class by the professor, did my best and I can gladly say, it works. The fate I created for myself in my math class, while also taking another class, was I earned a B. So don't base your actions toward a task, job or class, on someone's reaction to the fate they made for themselves. It is up to you to make your own luck!!
