Naval's original tweet storm is really worth reading (as is some of the discussion around it on twitter): https://twitter.com/naval/status/1002103360646823936

Thanks for reposting the source. Lots of great quotes like,

There are no get rich quick schemes. That's just someone else getting rich off you.

The most interesting part for me, however, is discussion of removing the element of luck. Naval doesn't clearly elaborate on this but keeps making assertions that anyone can be deterministically lucky. The only "insight" I could gather is: specialize in something, start business and sell products. Obviously, that's exactly where you need to get lucky: right thing to specialize in, right product to create and run business over long enough duration despite of million failure points.
