“Fortune favors only the prepared mind.” ~Louis Pasteur
2014 taught me to expect, and be prepared for, the unexpected. We have to be prepared to recognize fortune when it comes our way and that takes training. Fortune commonly arrives neatly disguised in ways we don’t anticipate. We spend so much time steeling ourselves for disappointment and disaster that we often forget to equally prepare ourselves for remarkable good fortune, too. Be brave. Be positive. Be prepared to be successful.
