“One-half of life is luck; the other half is discipline – and that’s the important half, for without discipline you wouldn’t know what to do with luck.” Carl Zuckmeyer
Luck. Some say it is when preparation meets opportunity and others… “you lucky bugger!”. However it is seen, luck is something every successful person can claim has helped them get to where they are today.
So you want to be lucky? What are you prepared to do to become lucky? How about saying to yourself each morning, ” I am a lucky person and today is another lucky day”. Successful people know the other half of luck is discipline. Would you have the discipline to say this affirmation every morning if you knew it would make you even luckier?
Successful people enjoy meeting and being with other people. You can increase your chance of having a lucky encounter that will change your life by;
Telephoning friends you haven’t seen for awhile to ask what’s happening in their life
Make the time to be at the party you didn’t think you had time to be at
Find something that really interests you and find others interested in the same thing
Say hi instead of rushing on
Sign up for an evening class.
Try out the examples on this list and make up some of your own. For example; go a different way to work or start a luck diary. Everyday write down lucky things that happened to you during that day. The next morning read the lucky things that happened to you. You will be surprised how lucky you are.
Have a lucky week.
P.S. Sometimes you may make a bad decision, but remember this; it takes less than a second to make that decision and since there are 8,640 seconds in a day you have quite a few opportunities to make good ones.
