The Coincidence Of Success
- 3 Comment
It’s strange how success can come about.Â Anita Roddick, of Body Shop fame, said that when she started her very first shop she simply wanted sufficient money to survive and be able to feed her children.
TheÂ green colourÂ for herÂ stores wasn’t a flash of inspiration. ItÂ wasÂ chosen simply because it seemed the only colour that would cover the damp patches in her first premises.
Her story is full of coincidences that helped her along the way to a fortune. Even the way her franchises started wasn’t really her idea, someone approached her.
Similar coincidences appear in the Richard Branson, James Dyson and many other successÂ stories.Â
I believe that, once we start looking, things start to happen. It’s up to us to notice the opportunities that arise.Â Unfortunately most of us pass them by or can’t be bothered to follow them through.
It’s aÂ strange world.
