The answer to the question that is the title of this post is ‘No.’
I don’t know your personal health story, but you essentially have a 50/50 shot of waking up every morning regardless of how well you personally treat your body. (and yes, there is always the chance that something could happen to you, but it is not likely).
According to the Small Business Association, over 50% of small businesses will fail in the first five years. That’s still better than the odds of picking five white balls and one red ball at random. And many of those small business risks can be easily mitigated through smart planning that many of those small business owners fail to do as they get wrapped up in the excitement of running a business.
And then there are the sayings ‘you make your own luck’ or ‘your luck is what you make it.’ Both say the same thing, the odds of your success can always be in your favor, assuming you work to make sure they are in your favor.
So you don’t have to feel desperate if you find yourself standing in line to get a few Mega Millions multi state lottery tickets today. Just make sure you stick to just a few, and don’t base your future happiness on the way the balls fall tonight.
