Make Rain

I am a firm believer in serendipity. Put yourself out there, meet as many people as you can, offer your help without an expectation of any return, be a generally good person. And you will create your own luck (yes — you need to be smart enough to know when you’re lucky too).

Point in case: I never interviewed for a single job in my life. They all came to me through friends of friends (and sometimes their friends) whom I met randomly in my past. Serendipity.

The same goes for pretty much every opportunity which came my way. You create your own luck. You make rain.

Here’s my challenge for you: Go out into the world, meet a random person and ask what you can do for them. Repeat. And repeat. Start today.

I guarantee you that before you know the world will return the favor and you will make rain.
