Luck is a factor

“She’s so lucky.”

“Everything comes so easy to him.”

While luck is a factor in life, it’s not the only one, nor is it one over which we have any control.  (That’s what makes it luck, right?)

We do, however, have some measure of control over our thoughts, feelings and behavior.

We do have some measure of control over where we place our attention and how we respond to the circumstances and challenges of our life.

Interestingly, we can increase our own experience of being “lucky” by careful planning and preparation, cultivating constructive attitudes and self-talk, learning to recognize opportunities when they do come our way, and then acting – without hesitation – on those opportunities that advance our life in the direction of our goals.

Luck?

“He’s such a lucky guy.”

“Everything seems to come so easy to her.”
