The ultimate guide to getting lucky

Too many people say, “if only I was luckier.” The truth is, we create our own luck. We can put ourselves in the situations that enable us to fulfil our dreams, make them a reality and find peace and happiness. Or, we sit back, moan about just how unhappy we are and accept that we are the least lucky people we know.

Lucky people have one thing in common

Take a student for example, how many times have you thought, ah he’s so lucky he gets good grades, I wish I could get grades like that. Well, something I only discovered during my Masters degree is that you can. Anyone can. It just takes hard work and sacrifice. When everyone is out having a good time, you have to stay home and put in the extra hours. Study your ass off and then study some more. It’s not easy but in the end it’s worth it. Yeah I sure got “lucky” that year after putting in all that work.

See luck really is about choice. It’s about embracing a path and walking down it. It’s not going to be easy. In fact, it’s probably going to be exactly the opposite, damn challenging. It’s going to make your back sore, it’s going to keep you up at night and it’s going to feel like torture…

but in the end, you will be so lucky that you’ll feel like you got hit but the damn luck train.

Never trying, never winning

I consider myself to be pretty unlucky when it comes to winning things. I honestly never win anything. Except that one time when I was about 11 and I won a washing machine. Yeah, turns out, you actually have to enter the damn competitions in order to win. Who knew!?

It’s the same when it comes to life. If you want to “win” then you’ve got to enter the competition. You can’t expect to find the perfect job if you don’t bother to look for it, and then apply for it. You can’t expect that job to be a medical job if you’ve never studied for it. You know what I’m saying? Life is a chain of making things happen for yourself. If you want it badly enough, you need to plan for it and make it happen and I promise you, the luck will come pouring in.

Let’s get lucky

“I'm a great believer in luck

So this week is a new week, a new chance to make your life luckier. I need you to think about one area in your life that you’re going to get luckier in. Now, write it down, that one thing you’re going to work on and set yourself some goals for that will help you make this happen. Make sure that starting this week, everything you do is aligned to this goal and I promise you that you will get luckier!

    I really, REALLY liked this read Joni! Its true. There is no such thing as luck when we talk about achieving life goals. Although I must admit, Im still just working on the whole “thank you” thing we talked about! I laughed out loud to myself the other day when I realised Id just done the total opposite. But I in my favour, I caught myself right as I did it! Im a work in progress! 😉 Back to the topic at hand…I have some goals penned down….I just haven’t quite figured out what steps specifically I need to take to reach them! Like I said, a work in progress! But this has given me the chance to think about that piece of paper again, cause i haven’t in a while to be honest! Thanks again!

      I love that…. and I really am happy that you take my advice. I don’t expect you to suddenly wake up and be a different person but we can take small steps to where we need to be. I think it’s so important to value ourselves and to appreciate who we are because we aren’t perfect but we are all we’ve got and with a little practice, in time you will naturally just say thank you and then BELIEVE what people compliment you on.

      Those goals…. need to be implemented. I don’t know about you but I get so bogged down by day to day stuff that doesn’t even matter that sometimes I completely forget what I’m working towards in the first place. Having goals written down just helps us to see more clearly.

      Always a work in progress!
