... the luckier I get" is a quote ascribed to several people.
I have often been described by people who don’t know me well as being “lucky”: in the right place at the right time, etc.
But it's not just about me:
Yes, these all seem like luck or coincidence, things which happen by chance. However, in every case, there was an intention and an action (or a series of actions) which had to be in place first. I had to write letters; get into networks; let people know what I was doing/wanted to do. The fundraiser had to identify the potential person they wanted to get the charity message out. And in all cases, once the “coincidence” happened, it had to be backed up with a track record of hard work and knowledge. So you have to do the work, meet the people, know what you want and get the message out.
Trusting to luck is a nice idea, but luck never shows up unless you do.
