The Bill Gates Story
Sometimes I wonder about the role luck has in someone’s success.
We tend to attribute our successes to our skills and our failures to luck or other outside forces.
So I wanted to tell you the Bill Gates story.
Arguably one of the most successful people of the last century.
What is the one thing that made him who he is today?
What do you think has played the biggest role in his success?
Was it his focussed obsession?
Was it his relentless work ethic?
Or the fact that he was fiercely competitive?
All of these are good guesses, but all of them are incorrect.
The biggest differentiating factor was that Bill Gates was one in a million high school students that had access to a computer.
He got access to one at the age of 13th at Lakeside high school.
Imagine if he didn’t.
If he was just a regular high school student without access to a computer, he’d probably miss the software and computer revolution.
Would we hear about Bill Gates and how successful he was?
This is something even he admits.
He told the graduating class of Lakeside in 2005 that there would be no Microsoft if there was no Lakeside.
We can say a lot of things about Bill Gates, but at least he was humble enough to realize the role luck has played in his success.
Never underestimate the role luck has played in your life.
It’s bigger than you think.
