Luck is a State of Mind
Luck is a way of thinking and behaving…created through thoughts, feelings and actions.
With the same set of ingredients, some people have a happy family life, health, wealth and career success..
Others struggle, have financial hardship and cannot seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel – when they are not even in the tunnel!!
Identify the Opportunity and give it a go
- A lucky person’s character helps create, notice and act on what seems to be random opportunities.
- Have an open mind, see potential in situations – be proactive and do not be scared to take the opportunity.
- Listen to your intuition – trust your hunches…
- You have the power to make prophecies self-fulfilling and dreams come true.
- Positive people with short, medium and long term goals…. have a focus.
- They believe that what they want is achievable, and have a plan of how to get there… they are lucky…but they have created their own luck.
- A resilient attitude and persistence can change bad luck into good luck. There are many examples of this. One that is famous is the story of how Colonel Saunders went to 100’s of potential investors before one group said that they would back him. How lucky was he?
- Lucky people don’t dwell on the bad luck… this is what differentiates the lucky person from the average.
There is a huge difference between luck and chance.
Luck is a force that brings good fortune or bad.
Chance is something that happens because of unpredictable events.
We can’t choose what will happen to us, but we can choose how we react.
That is what counts!!
With an open mind, a set of goals and a positive can do attitude, there is nothing you cannot do
