Success is achieved when opportunity is complemented with preparation.
However, those who are unprepared, blame their luck. Every victory is the result of the following components—sacrifice, self-discipline, hard work, commitment, integrity and responsibility, besides our willingness to invest time, effort and money. Only when we are prepared with such qualities can we fetch abundant and gratifying returns. There are no free lunches in this world. Without preparation, one can neither consistently achieve success nor sustain it. Obstacles test our preparedness to successfully convert the obstacles into opportunities.
