Make your own luck.
Too many times I hear people exclaim that so and so was so “lucky” to get, receive or attain such and such. Please understand that much of what people claim to be luck is people putting themselves in the right place at the right time. Those lucky people put hard work into their supposed lucky streak. Much of what is seen as luck isn’t luck at all, but just being there ready to do or not do.
Here is number six on a list of things to improve your chances of being lucky.
Yes, practice being lucky. Sounds funny but so much of what we do is filled with negative thought patterns. You have a job, a wife and great kids, right? Wow you are lucky. Think of all the people in the world that aren’t as lucky as you. You have to see your own life as being filled with good luck. Positive thoughts help bring about positive results.
