Make Your Own Luck
Especially on a day like today, remember this fact:
BAD LUCK doesn’t exist and
GOOD LUCK exists when you make it.
Sure, there is a randomness to life’s events…
But a mystical force that is conspiring against you and your goals?
That you can beat by stumbling across a magical four-leaf plant?
Sorry, I don’t buy it.
Instead, I make my “luck”.
You can, too.
1) Stay receptive
New and chance opportunities are everywhere. Starve your distractions. Pay attention to the whos, whats, whys, and wheres of each event in your day. Keep your eyes and mind wide open. Tune into your intuition, and trust your gut.
2) Stay ready
Train hard, eat right, build skills, read books, speak well, write well, and explore your edges. Daily. Ensure you have the courage, confidence, and capacity to seize an opportunity when you notice it. It will be gift-wrapped in hard work, and you will be ready to rip.
3) Stay resilient
Everything won’t start well, but everything will end well with effort. Hold this belief firmly in your heart. Do not dwell on your mistakes. Instead, correct them with your hard work. Expect success, and make it inevitable with the strength of your effort.
Practice this 3-step discipline daily —
And you won’t have to worry about “getting lucky”…
Because you’ll be getting to work.
