Why Should I Get a Break?

I think many Americans truly believe that success (financial, sports or otherwise) is more about getting a break than hard work – (he was just in the right spot at the right time).  And I’ve certainly been guilty of thinking like this.  But if I get honest with myself, the times I’ve succeeded in life were the times I put in the effort.  When I didn’t put in the effort – I wasn’t too successful.  And if I get even more honest, I have to admit that this is the case with everyone who is successful.  Yes, some are born into money and others receive handouts – but is that really getting a break?  If you want something – make it happen!  That’s how the American dream really works.
