The lucky Dragon seems to get ahead easily in life, but his success isn’t as automatic as others may believe. Dragons become successful by not only being in the right place at the right time, but also by seeing the opportunities in front of him and taking advantage of them. Whereas more timid animals may pass up an opportunity to avoid risk and uncertainty, the Tiger forges ahead, often without much foresight. Unfortunately, this impulsiveness and impatience are his greatest setbacks. Whereas one Dragon may achieve luck, happiness and good health – qualities that Dragons are known for – a less fortunate Dragon may be too demanding and egotistic to ever get ahead.
