BUT, there is one part that increases your positive "Black Swan" moments - -and that is the need to keep putting yourself in a position to succeed (i.e., have good "luck") in the first place. That means that a "never say die" attitude can, among other things, help increase your odds.
For this reason, I don't call it "luck" exactly -- I consider it to be more a question of being "fortunate." There is free will -- and effort -- associated with it.
In the end, however, Arrington's overall theme rings true. So, consider it this Thanksgiving season. And, count your blessings and good fortunes. In other words, appreciate how "lucky" we are.
I certainly do ....
