Champions make their own luck and when that luck happens they capitalize on it. However you want to look at it, harnessing the impetus of the moment is always key. Look at Tom Brady who was, I believe, selected as the very last pick in the draft as a favor. Then, he gets put in the game, a playoff game, after the starter gets hurt. He is now the GOAT of all quarterbacks and possibly one of the greatest sports heroes of all time in all sports. But he accomplished that by grabbing the moment and 5 Super Bowl wins later (he appeared in seven total), he is the GOAT.
What I am trying to say is make it happen and acknowledge the key moment to really harness your potential. You can do anything but knowing when to really excel is almost as important as the excelling itself.
