Which was your lucky moment

With this post I want you to reflect on which was your lucky moment. A few days ago Lawrence Harvey Zeiger, the famous American journalist and writer known as Larry King, passed away. It is estimated that in his career he has interviewed more than 50.000 people, including many of the most recognized personalities of all time, such as politicians, artists, athletes, businessmen …

Larry explained a few years ago, that in the early 60s he was having dinner at a friend’s house. The question that centered the conversation on that evening was “What is the truly impossible in your profession?” One of the assistants was a doctor and said that the really impossible in medicine was to make artificial blood. He commented that no matter how much science progressed, he was totally convinced that blood could never be manufactured artificially. When it was Larry King’s turn, he commented that the truly impossible thing for him was interviewing Frank Sinatra, among other reasons, because Sinatra did not give interviews. One of the attendees claimed that he was a friend of Sinatra and that he would get him an interview. At the time, Larry King was an unknown journalist who ran a show on a local Florida station. The day after dinner, Larry’s friend confirmed that Sinatra would be coming to his show next Monday, as it was the only day of the week that he wasn’t performing. King began to announce such news with “fanfare”. Although many people did not believe it … How could a local station and an unknown interviewer interview the most recognized public figure of the moment? King spent what little money he had to advertise and prepare the event. Monday finally arrived and Fran Sinatra was interviewed by Larry King who began his interview by explaining how he had managed to bring Sinatra onto his show. As Larry himself has acknowledged, it was his lucky moment. If Sinatra hadn’t shown up, King would have made a fool of himself. But he showed up and… changed Larry King’s professional life forever. It was a turning point that catapulted him into a truly successful career.

I have always thought that, in the professional field, most of us have moments of luck that radically change our professional life, our career. We all have some lucky moments throughout our lives. But there is always usually one that stands out from all the others.

This moment came to me 20 years ago, on 2001. I was lucky enough to meet Lluis Martínez Ribes at an event. I went to greet him and we had a brief but very cordial chat and he made an appointment to see us in person a few days later. In this appointment, He proposed several professional projects to me and pushed me to create my own marketing consultancy just 26 years old. In addition to his invaluable help in my first years as a freelance professional, years later he was again decisive in my professional life when he bet on me when he was consulted by the employers of Fira de Lleida in search of a general manager. And there I was 4 wonderful years in which I enjoyed, I learned a lot and it allowed me to meet many people. An experience that greatly enhanced my personal branding.

Without any doubt, it was my great moment of luck.

Surely you have also had your lucky moment in your professional life. If so, be grateful, remember it frequently, and above all take advantage of luck and meet the expectations generated. And above all, help other people to also have their moment of luck (I assure you it is worth it).

And if you haven’t had this great moment of luck yet, keep looking. Build authentic relationships as most moments of luck come through personal relationships. Don’t give up, keep looking and trust your intuition. Because as I said Steve Jobs “Have the courage to follow your heart and your intuition. They really know who you want to become”.
