You need wisdom and intelligence to put yourself in the position to get lucky.

Getting lucky shouldn't always be about getting laid. If you're lucky then the very luck might get you to that position.

Depends on the circumstances, getting laid anyone can get lucky but with business and money you have to have knowledge and calculated risk to get lucky!

And what about those who easily make it through, seeing whom most of us become awestruck. The ones who even without knowledge make it to the other end.

That's not very many people. Most make it "to the other end" because they were determined and worked hard. Even those who caught lucky breaks and made it had to work hard to keep it. I don't see many people in this world (excluding people born into wealthy/powerful families) who got lucky exclusively and faired well. Even most lottery winners go broke, they don't work to or have to know how to keep it

Then they have talent in the areas that got them there. Smart doesnt always relate to the ability to retain and present knowledge. Talent can relate to human communication and how to do it in certain ways.

If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

nah trust, luck may give you a head start but without any real effort you're gonna be stuck in that same spot whilst everyone else moves forward.

In the longrun

No

Luck runs out, intelligence and wisdom doesn't.

It does but time passes at an equal rate for the three

Luck without wisdom and intelligence is like mortar without the bricks. Sure, you can stack a few bricks (luck) together but to really build something you need (the mortar) wisdom and intelligence.

@jodzdzownica True but what if luck gets you mortar too

It doesn't. You can't build a life with luck alone. Although you can trade some wisdom and intelligence for hard work and patience.

Nah, I think with enough wisdom AKA information and intellect, you could calculate every outcome ever. Luck wouldn't even be a thing
