Daily Quote and Reflection: Jeremy Lin Lesson of Luck– “Always be Ready”


“Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success”. Henry Ford

“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning” Thomas Edison


The Jeremy Lin story is a story about preparation, luck and a desperate coach taking a chance on someone. You can call this luck or the “stars and moon” aligning for someone. What you can’t deny is that Lin was ready when the opportunity presented itself.  Jeremy Lin was hiding in plain sight but was overlooked by the so-called recruiting experts and numerous NBA coaches. Why did this happen? It could be inflexible definitions of what talent looks like, stereotype thinking or just plain stupidly on the so-called experts part.  I wonder how many people have suffered this experience and gave up or didn’t get the chance to show their stuff. This story will probably level off but is a testimony to the above quotes: always be ready–know your strengths and refine your skills, find someone who will give you a chance and find the system where you can show case your talents.  This story is about sports but could easily be said about other performing arts and professions. It is also about “lady luck” when the opportunity comes your way be ready to take the risk to do your best.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it
    out better?

  2. I do not even know the way I finished up here, however I assumed this submit was great.
    I do not recognize who you’re however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger for those who aren’t already.
