Make Your Own Luck

Have you ever met someone who seems to have everything going for her?

  • Great job.
  • Loving partner.
  • No debt.
  • Lots of friends.
  • Fabulous clothes.
  • Sporty car.
  • Perfect health.
  • Happy family life.

She’s just so damn lucky. Too bad you’re not a lucky person.

Or are you?

There’s this idea that being lucky is something you’re born with…that some people are predestined to have good things in their lives. And some of us are on the other end of the spectrum…doomed to a life of mediocrity.

That’s a load of crap!

This might shock you, but lucky people don’t exist.

Every one of us has the exact same chance to bring meaning and prosperity into our lives. Those so-called “lucky” people just know something you don’t.

Lucky people believe they are lucky.

It’s true. The thoughts in your mind play a HUGE role in what you attract in your life.

A person who believes she is lucky will go about her day knowing that good things will happen to her.

  • She’ll smile more and easily make a new friends.
  • She’ll trust her gut to lead her in the right direction.
  • She’ll be on the lookout for good fortune and will take notice of the blessings in her life.
  • She’ll be kinder to her family members because she anticipates them to be kind in return.
  • She’ll treat her body with respect and trusts that she will not get sick.
  • She’ll be confident in her endeavors because she knows she will succeed.

My challenge for you is to spend the day believing with all your heart that you are a lucky person.

Really feel it inside your heart: walk like a lucky person, work at your desk like a lucky person, spend time with your loved ones like a lucky person, view the world like a lucky person.

You’ll come to realize that you make your own luck.

Your mind is the most powerful part of you, and you can manifest luck into your life.

When you believe it, then you will see it.

    One of the first video games I ever played is Tomb Raider. At one instance the main character said that she makes her own luck, all else be damned. I don’t know why but that phrase stuck with me until now, about 10 years after completing the game.

    I *am* a lucky person. Period. It’s not so much a belief anymore as an undeniable truth. It’s a great thing you’re doing here, Sage, spreading the word, because more people need to know that what they *do* matters the most. Happy St. Patty’s!

    First of all, I want to say those are beautiful photos of you! You really have a very friendly presence, even in photos 🙂

    You are so right about this. I used to be an incredibly negative person. I felt like the world was against me and I couldn’t catch a break. It is something I’ve worked very hard on and I believe now more so than ever that having a positive attitude and outlook will 100% influence your reality and your “luck” will change. I still struggle with it and am guilty of falling back into old patterns, but I recognize it quicker now and realize that I control my destiny.

    This is a really powerful message, thanks for this post! You should write a book 🙂

      Oh, you’re making me blush! I hope I look friendly–no one will take my advice if I look grumpy. 🙂

      I bet most people think this way, that they’re not as lucky or as fortunate as everyone else. But our attitudes do affect our realities…just ask anyone who has survived a horrible event. That doesn’t mean that thinking positively will prevent bad situations, but we’ll be better able to handle whatever comes our way.

      About me writing a book…I’ve already started. 🙂 Stay tuned!

    So so true! And I speak from personal experience. I changed my luck from bad to good by the way I live my life. Now, things flow to me beyond my wildest expectations. We control our destinies more than most people realize. Great post.

    Oh, and terrific photo of you!

      Thanks so much! Chris is my photographer, and he takes some really nice shots, even with our cheapo point-and-shoot camera. I’m feeling really good lately, and I hope it shows. 🙂

      It may sound a little “woo woo” but the law of attraction really does work. I’ve seen amazing things come into my life by changing my outlook. It’s empowering to take control of your life!

    The mind certainly is a powerful thing! I usually feel like the luckiest girl in the world, despite the challenges. 🙂

      You come across as a happy person on your blog, even with your injuries! I admire your positive attitude.
