We believe that the people who are at the top always had everything easy. That somehow life made things easier for him than others and it was only a stroke of luck. Today we will talk about how luck is only one of the components of success and we will set an example with the life of Gustavo Mirabal. Venezuela’s Gustavo Mirabal Castro went through it all and surpassed it by far.
The role of luck in Gustavo Mirabal Castro’s success
We can say that Gustavo Mirabal Castro is a successful man, and we can also say that he is a lucky man. This statement does not mean that Gustavo Mirabal has not made an effort to achieve the things he achieved, but we can say that he was lucky in life.
Luck can play an important role in personal success. But the importance of luck is a topic of ongoing debate. The importance we give to luck depends on the context and perspective of everyone.
People who consider that their life depends on external factors have an external locus of control. The locus of control is the belief where it is that controls our lives. If we consider that our lives are controlled entirely by fate, luck, God, or any other approach, it is said that they have an external locus of control.
Moreover, people who feel they are in control of their lives are said to possess a strong internal locus of control.
To believe that luck has a fundamental role in our lives is to have a strong external locus of control. We believe we have no control over our lives.
Some people strongly believe in luck. In this way they attribute a significant part of their success, or failure, to fortuitous events or favorable circumstances.
Other people minimize the role of luck and focus more on effort, planning, and perseverance as determining factors in success.
But let’s dig a little deeper into the role of luck for people’s success.
How does luck influence our lives?
In our lives there are elements beyond our control. These elements influence our results, both positively and negatively.
Factors that can be considered fortuitous can be:
- Place of birth
- The opportunities that present themselves at the right time
- Meet the right people at the right time.
These elements can influence a person’s trajectory. We cannot evaluate success in the same way for a person born into an organized family in a first world country, comparing it to a person born into a poor family, suffering domestic violence in a third world country.
What we can observe is whether people have taken advantage of the opportunities that this position gave them, whether many or few.
How is the internal locus of control critical to success?
The internal locus of control is the perception a person has over the control they have over their own life.
People with an internal locus of control believe that their actions, decisions, and efforts have a significant impact on the results they experience. Thanks to this, people with internal locus of control strive to achieve better results.
In psychology, a strong internal locus of control has been linked to some traits fundamental to personal success. Internal locus of control helps people take responsibility for the outcome of their lives.
The internal locus of control as manager of our decisions
The internal locus of control is fundamental to success and influences the following aspects:
- Greater resilience.
- Assertiveness in decision making.
- Take responsibility for actions and results.
People who believe they have the power to influence their own destiny take proactive actions and persist in achieving their goals. In this way we manage our efforts in fusion of our goal and not of external aspects that are not in our control. This increases your chances of success and is therefore one of the keys to success.
Luck as a catalyst for success
Luck is the opportunities that life gives us so that we take advantage of them in order to achieve success. But in order to seize those opportunities, we must be willing to act.
It is useless to be the son of a millionaire, if we just want to sit staring at the ceiling doing nothing.
For Gustavo Mirabal Castro, as an athlete, seeing the example of personalities such as Pelé or Maradona is the best example. People who from their humility knew how to take advantage of their talent to have a better life and success. They were fortunate to have a talent and a family that supported them, however, that did not exempt them from going through the difficulties and training.
In the same way, Gustavo Mirabal Castro learned that, although you know a lot about finance, he could not give unsolicited advice.
