Anderson Connect

The luck o’ the Irish is in the air, so we take inspiration from this March theme and celebrate the truth of it all – that the harder you work, the more luck you have. Our Anderson students know all about hard work and the luck that seems to somehow, magically, follow focused dedication and unwavering perseverance.

Whether you engage in the joys of St. Patrick’s Day or simply appreciate the tradition some of our fellow students celebrate, know that our wishes for you all are sincere. We wish you belief in the seemingly impossible made possible, grand blessings and good fortune always, when you have days that feel like your luck has turned, good friends to remind you that the sun will shine again, and laughter in all the in between.

As the Irish of good humour say … “May your troubles be as few and as far apart as my grandmother’s teeth.” 😊

A Thought to Ponder

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” ~ Seneca the Younger

You have undoubtedly experienced this firsthand in your life or may be in the throes of it right now as you launch a new career and take your life to new levels. This is when your dreaming is powered by concentrated effort over time and suddenly the stars seem to align and, wham, it all comes together, perhaps even better than you could have envisioned. This is glorious luck and inspires all those who witness your ‘overnight’ success. Onward Anderson students!

A Short Story to Inspire

The Lucky Farmer

There once lived a farmer in a small village. He was considered the luckiest man in the village. The farmer believed that wonderful things came to those who worked hard and so he did.

One day, the farmer was working in his field. He saw a traveler walking by. The traveler asked the farmer, “How did you get so rich?” The farmer replied, “Hard work.” The traveler was surprised and said, “Many people work hard but are still poor. There must be some luck involved too!”

The farmer thought for a while and said, “You’re right. Let’s say luck and hard work are like two horses pulling a wagon. With only one horse, the wagon won’t move. Hard work alone is not enough. Luck alone will not take the wagon far. When luck and hard work come together, that’s when the wagon starts moving!”

The traveler was very impressed with the farmer’s wisdom. He asked again, “What about times when you face bad luck? How do you deal with it?”

The farmer smiled and said, “When times are good, I work hard. When times are bad, I work even harder. Hard work can turn bad luck into good luck!”

The traveler thanked the farmer and continued his journey enlightened by the farmer’s positive attitude and simple wisdom. Like the traveler, we too can learn from the farmer’s story.

The Moral of the Story ~ Success comes to those who work hard and maintain a positive attitude, regardless of luck, good or bad. Luck is fleeting, but hard work and a positive attitude can overcome all odds, over time.
