8. Make your own luck
The rich and famous don’t believe in luck–they know that they have to create their own opportunities, and then act on them. Luck is simply where preparation and opportunity meet.
9. Volunteer–and network
It’s not a coincidence that the rich and famous are some of the largest donors to social causes, community-based organizations, and nonprofits. They are passionate about leaving the world a better place than they found it, and they put their time and their money where their mouth is. Not only do they change the world for the better as a result of these efforts, they extend their networks, which helps further build their fame and fortune.
