When people tell me I am lucky, I don’t believe them! I feel blessed and fortunate, but it did not land in my lap when I was in the lotus position or praying. I actually had to do a lot of something to make things happen.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not discounting good fortune entirely, but I feel luck happens when you recognize opportunity and take actions that attract the good fortune to you. There would be people around you in the same position, but will not do what you are doing: not the right time, too expensive, must be a scam, too tough or whatever their current flavour of the moment excuse is. As they say, and I firmly believe “Fortune favours the Bold”. So they tell you that you are lucky to make themselves feel better at not taking any action when you did.
When I started in the Network Marketing arena, so many family, friends and acquaintances were skeptical. I put a lot of effort into it, and have a lovely car to show for it, amongst other things, and I’m still told I’m lucky & I was in the right place at the right time – phooeey!
I grabbed that particular brass ring and went for it, when most of the same people did not do anything.
Don’t wait for luck to happen to you – it won’t. Create your own Luck, Success and Life – it is well within your capabilities.
