September 8th: Do Not Be Deceived by Fortune
Luck… the thought of luck and fortune is unsettling to me. for the ill prepared luck is a fickle master and fortune frowns on their future.

Success comes because we did the work required to generate the results we want. Luck, fortune…fate, no thank you.
I’m in control of my future, and you are in control of yours.
