Of the goddess fortune

To some the goddess fortune appears, to others not. Everyone can measure their closeness to that mythological figure. Or, the popular phrase, “better luck than money” can be used. The real thing is that there are those who are lucky, and others who are not. There are also other popular references that emphasize work, education, and effort over luck. The only thing that is invariable is that the references are about an action that unfolds in the future from an event in the present. A person with financial difficulties announces that he will marry (a civil contract) with another person who is very financially well off. Many may begin to believe that the person with the least money was lucky. But it is an objective description of an event that will happen in the future. Nothing ensures that in the formalization of the marriage there are no specific exclusion clauses where the transfer of a part of the economic well-being of one party to the other is left out of the contract. On the other hand, a person who manages to establish a company is not synonymous with economic success. The market can play you adversely.

In political action luck can be a factor, no doubt. Get to know a person and collaborate with them and then rise or fall together. The fortune of meeting political actors in training, who in a few years later manage to gain power. At that moment, a person can leave anonymity and become a shining political star, even though most of his professional activity has been developed in other economic fields. In the same way, there may be those who have decades of being performing minor public functions, but the fortune of meeting a politician who starts or in disgrace makes them, when that character begins to become powerful, achieve a promotion process. From examples, kind reader, everyone knows.

URGENT TO READ

There is an element that goes beyond good fortune, luck. It is the proper knowledge and handling of the language: reading, writing and speaking it correctly. That knowledge is an added value in any work activity. With intelligence seasoned with the correct use of the language, the possibility of achieving success, in the task that is undertaken, becomes very high. Beyond luck. In the decades that he has worked as a teacher and in various professional performances, including the publication of Lecturas, EL DEBATE, he has constantly insisted on the urgency of reading others.

The only way to achieve the objectives in a social interaction is the mastery of language. In other words, to have the desired job, to be “successful”, in short, to achieve material things, it is necessary to control and correctly use the mother tongue: in written, spoken and, fundamentally, understand it. From the above, it is essential, urgent, that people who are going to the labor market read. In itself, the narrow labor market will be highly competitive, now if to this is added that there is no command of Spanish, then the future, with high probabilities, will be very different from expectations. Not to say, as they say in colloquial language: a future of “losers” can be predicted.

Just the last start of vacation was published here: “When entering fully into summer vacation. You can’t stop repeating how urgent it is to read. There are some notes, to insist, always, that you have to read: The only way to achieve the objectives in a social interaction is the mastery of language. In other words, to have the desired job, to be “successful”, in short, to achieve material things, it is necessary to control and correctly use the mother tongue: in written, spoken and, fundamentally, understand it. From the above, it is essential, urgent, to read. In itself, the job market will be highly competitive, now if to this is added that there is no command of Spanish, then the future, with high probabilities, will be very different from expectations … If some kind reader remains concerned and interest is born, this cry of urgency was worth it ”(18 / Jul / 2021).
