Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get. (Ray Kroc, late business man)

That’s a really down-to-earth idea, isn’t it? People refer to sweat-equity when they talk about the investment of their time and effort into a personal project. Certainly, we take a great deal of pride and ownership in the results of our hard labor. But, no one would regard the result of that work as just lucky. Don’t trust dumb luck; give your best effort to gain the best results.

People should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God (Ecclesiastes 3:13).
