Instead of being critical of people in authority over you and envious of their position, be happy you're not responsible for everything they have to do. Instead of piling on complaints, thank them for what they do. Overwhelm them with encouragement and appreciation!
Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.

One thing I never want to be accused of is not working.
Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat.
Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.
Without work, all life goes rotten. But when work is soulless, life stifles and dies.
And if small businesspeople say they made it on their own, all they are saying is that nobody else worked seven days a week in their place. Nobody showed up in their place to open the door at five in the morning. Nobody did their thinking, and worrying, and sweating for them.
Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.
To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness.
It is an immutable law in business that words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises-but only performance is reality.
Harold S. Geneen
The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.
Working hard is very important. You're not going to get anywhere without working extremely hard.
