What do you do when people ask you “Do you think you were just lucky?” Did luck made a difference in your success. I’ve always found this question to be a bit insulting. Like the reasoning or internal justification or excuse making behind the mind of the questioner as they justify to themeless why they aren’t this successful. They “just aren’t this lucky”
As we go through our day we are surrounded by a sea of infinite possibilities, infinite “lucky” options. I like to say, “You move toward what you think about.” You’ll only see, hear and feel what it is you’re looking for. If you’re looking for prosperity, growth, opportunity, compassion, love, etc you’ll find it. If you’re looking for danger, misery, bleakness, hopelessness, you’ll find it.
What you’re actively training your mind to look for, it will find. What you expect to discover will manifest itself in your life. That’s why lucky people keep being lucky and unlucky people keep having unlucky things happen to them. This is how Richard Branson answered the luck question. He said, Yes, of course we are all lucky, luck surrounds us every day, all day whether you recognize it or not. I have not been anymore lucky or unlucky than anyone else. The difference is when luck came my way I took advantage of it.
Luck plays a big roll. Brains are essential, hard work is invaluable, but luck may decide the outcome. The harder you work the better your outcome. Have faith in faith. Faith in yourself, not as others define it.
The harder you work on becoming better the better your prayers work. The harder you work at making things happen the greater favor God pays in your life. The more you train your mind to look for opportunities instead of scarcity, the more you look for abundance instead of lack, the more you focus on what’s possible instead of what can’t be done the more“luck” you will be granted
But be warned! The more you go out there and work on yourself the more, the more you sacrifice, the more you grind away at your craft, the more ass you kick doing what it takes to make you grow, to develop to become more successful, the more those around you will call you well, lucky. Just smile and say, “Yes, I suppose I am just blessed to be so lucky” but you and I know will know the truth.
Stop selling yourself short. If you want to get lucky, be lucky, you will.
