There was some luck involved.
Some people make better use of "luck" than others. Perhaps they make their own luck.
I prefer the view that he took the opportunity to exploit a situation to his best advantage.
opportunity is (mostly?) luck;
seeing it is smarts;
exploiting it (usually?) hard work *
Too many spot the opportunities and fail to react. Others are not even aware of the opportunities.
* in my own case, I figure 85/10/5%
