How To Create Your Own Luck

March 17, 2012

I am writing this article on St Patricks Day. I have absolutely no Irish in me, but I still like to focus on some of the themes of the day. One of those themes is luck. Are we all a little bit (or a lot) luckier today?

As I reflect on the topic of luck, I ask the question…is it possible we can create our own luck? I certainly believe we have significant control over the amount of “luck” that we encounter in our lives.

Recently, I found an article that discusses the topic of creating luck in our lives, and several things we can do. I now share information with you:

  1. Maintain a positive attitude. It is more obvious to me very day that, the more we maintain a positive frame of mind towards life, the more life rewards us with positive circumstances.
  2. Listen to yourself. Make sure your language is positive and confident.
  3. Picture success. Spend time each day seeing yourself as the positive, confident person you want to be. Also see each area of your life as you would like to be.
  4. Speak up. Instead of keeping things hemmed in, don’t be afraid to speak your mind.
  5. Link up with positive people. Let their luck rub off on you!
  6. Share with others. The more we share the more we seem to get back.
  7. Laugh a lot. Luck seems to always find happy people : )
  8. Be open to opportunity. You never know which one is “the one”.
  9. Take risks. The promised land is outside of your comfort zone, so we have to go outside of that comfort zone to get there.
  10. Do a good job. It is when we do our best in everything that “luck” seems to happen.

Here is a link to the article where I received this information….http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/columnists/positive-helpful-attitude-leads-to-success-make-your-own-luck-142175653.html

I find this information very helpful. I will let you decide if a result of these actions is luck or something far greater. Regardless, may the luck of St Patricks Day be with you today. Enjoy the blessings : )
