A couple of days ago, a friend bought a good luck charm from a Feng Shui store, hoping that it will help him get out of the financial rut he is in.
And as we talked over coffee afterward, I couldn’t help but notice how excited he was over his purchase.
At one point, he even held it so tightly and closed his eyes for a few seconds. At that point, I knew what he’s wishing for – to find a better job and finally get out of debt.
Later that night, as I was on my way home, I remembered the time when my most fervent wish in life was the same – a better and higher paying job so I could wipe out all my credit card debts.
And ironically, that wish never came true for me.
And as I look behind that time when I first “jumped off the cliff” and now see how far I’ve gone towards financial freedom, I wondered if luck had anything to do with it.
Did I just got lucky?
Thinking more and more about it, I’d have to say yes – I GOT LUCKY.
However, I also believe that my good fortune wasn’t because of some random twist of fate. Deep inside, I knew that the luck I had was NOT something purely accidental.
Which brings us to the question – if my luck was something I caused, then is it possible for others to likewise create their own luck?
And to that, my answer is YES, you can make your own good luck.
Here’s how I did mine:
I opened up my world
There are a lot of great opportunities out there and most will not just knock on your door. To seize them, you’d need to stand outside your porch and go after them. Shake up your daily routine, get out and meet new people, be a Yes! Man.
I took risks
Life can be a game of hit or miss. While you’ll certainly “miss” most of the time, you’ll definitely say that it’s all worth it when you finally hit it right. Be adventurous, face your fears, take risks.
I always kept a positive mental attitude
No matter how your life is, always try to feel good and think positive. If you do, then you’ll see that good things will start to come into your life. That’s the secret of “The Secret” – work with the Law of Attraction, believe in the principle of abundance and luck will be on your side.
I never gave up
Persevere with your dreams and be resilient with the difficulties in your life. Your lucky break may just be around the corner. Challenge yourself to become better, always try again and don’t quit.
