I am not lucky

Some of B schools and even new IIMs have replaced GD with WAT hence, Written Analysis Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process.
 
Read WAT topic:  I am not lucky
 
Since my childhood, luck has never favored me - my achievements are a result of my sheer hard work. In school, I would attend every single class and complete my assignments on time. Despite being studious, I would have a hard time competing with some of my friends, who used to depend on luck to pass their exams with flying colors. 
 
Many of my classmates would not complete their assignments on time or pay attention in class but luck has always been on their side. To excel at sports, I had to practice day and night to be on par with some of my classmates. This used to annoy and frustrate me because I used to think that life was unfair, where rewards were not linked to hard work. 
 
Over time, instead of blaming or even depending on my stars, I have learnt to take control of my life. I have a poster of Ed Bradley, an American journalist, which says “Be prepared, work hard and hope for a little luck. Recognize that the harder you work and the better prepared you are, the more luck you might have”. 
 
So, instead of comparing my life with others who are luckier than me, I just focus on my goals and work hard to achieve them. And at the end of the day, I feel happy that my hard work has borne sweet fruits. 
 
Luck is not in our hands but our destiny is. And our destiny can be shaped by hard work. So, since I am not as lucky as my peers, I work harder than them to achieve my goals. 
 
So far, my hard work has paid off and I hope that it continues to do so in the near future. One does not need luck to succeed – he should simply have the determination to overcome obstacles in life.
