Auburn Hills, MIMarch 9th, 2023Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new blog post on the company website entitled “Luck Is Not A Financial Plan,” in which Mr. Boike encourages anyone who wants financial well-being not to depend on luck.

“Can you plan on being lucky? “ Boike poses this question then adds, “That question is a bit of an oxymoron.” He explains, “Luck is something that “just happens.” A plan is something that you create and follow to an expected destination.” Boike continues adding, “With St. Patrick’s Day celebrated this month, some people start talking about “The luck of the Irish.” You may not know it, but the phrase does not come from the folklore of leprechauns but rather from the late 19th century, during the California gold rush. Many well-known and wealthy miners at the time were Irish and it is thought this is where the reference to Irish luck first appeared.”

As Boike emphasizes, “Counting on being lucky does not constitute a plan for eventual financial stability or the achievement of wealth. However,” he writes, “having a solid financial plan and following it will make some people think you are lucky.”
