In these turbulent times, when predictions are not always possible, having confidence in one's luck may make all the difference between taking inspired action or not acting on that opportunity or great idea after all.
You have it within your power to create your own luck. Real luck is about taking control of your life and being receptive to opportunities that come your way. Here are five tips for making your life a lucky one.
More often than not, if you dig below the surface of "lucky" people who have succeeded in their finances, careers or personal lives, you will find a tremendous amount of sacrifice, strategic planning and devotion.
So long as you're being honest and truthful with yourself, you're going to find that the universe really does shift to support you. It's not always easy -- it takes faith and commitment -- but if you want to live a life of abundance, happiness and fulfillment, it's the only way!
Instead of reflexively wishing someone (or myself) "good luck," I will try instead for the will to be fallible -- the courage to believe that I don't know everything -- that I cannot control everything. In that way, perhaps, I'll find myself in the realm where miracles happen.
I've thought about this for a long time now. If there's one great thing about growing up without a lot of money or status, it's that everything you achieve in life is a bonus -- if you have the right attitude. At least, that's how I feel about it.
What keeps me awake at night these days isn't that these two boys will turn out to be "bad kids" but rather that they'll be just like me -- young and unbearably foolish -- but not nearly as lucky; that the laws of probability will make them answer for their missteps in a way I never had to.
