Well, the short response to that is "hell no!"
The longer response? Lets see, I've battled for years with my health & struggled to hold down jobs my entire adult life because my M.E means I have more sick days than the average person. As a (terminally) single woman there's never been anyone to support me financially so working part time was never really an option. The result - working myself to death in temporary roles until I just can't work any more then having to move on & start all over again. Oh, and don't forget the gruelling doctor/hospital/dietician/psychologist/specialist schedule in my *spare* time!
After 14 years of fighting each & every day to stay afloat I decided enough was enough. No employer is going to give me a job that fits around my health. DWP aren't going to support me in any way because, unlike employers, they believe being able to walk from my bed to the loo on a good day means I'm perfectly capable of holding down full time work.
I decided to set up my own business. I did the research & courses needed to get up & running. I searched for funding. I went to trade fairs, put in the hours of hard work making things & perfecting my skills & tracking accounts, networking & finding out what people wanted & would buy. I bought stock & supplies instead of food & a social life, ME!
So hell no, I'm not giving luck any credit here! This didn't just happen to me while I sat idly by, I made all of this happen. I work damn hard at what I do & will continue to do so because I'm passionate & motivated & sooooo stubborn that I refuse to let this fail (despite the fact that even writing this post has taken me 2 hours because my wrists & back ache too much to do it all in one go)
I love my work & I love that the credit all belongs to me & the fantastic customer base I continue to build along the way ;)
Just for me, next time your brain tells you that you can't do something because it's too difficult, give it a little go anyway. You might be surprised what you CAN do!
