“I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it.” ~Thomas Jefferson
“I found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more of it, take more chances, be more active, show up more often.” ~Brian Tracy
This in-between season episode of Habits2Goals brings us a Mind Bullet Monday focused on luck!
When you think of luck, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Some people feel they’re “lucky,” while others insist they’re just “unlucky.” It stands to reason though that having the mindset that favorable events and opportunities are coming your way certainly can’t hurt!
Teena Seelig’s great Ted Talk on luck discusses the idea that increasing luck often involves the addition of some risk factor — emotional, spiritual, financial and more.
Taking more risks it appears allows for opportunities and chance to work in our favor. Every time you take a greater and greater risk, it allows your “luck sails” to catch more wind —opportunities according to Teena.
The point is, even though chance is always at play, how we think about luck and the risks we are willing to take to expand our comfort zone seems to greatly influence our capacity to receive it!
Thus, the harder you work, the more opportunities that present themselves.
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” ~Seneca
We CAN BE the co-creators of our own luck!
Listen in for more on the interconnectedness of luck, opportunity and hard work, and how “cause and effect” — aka karma — and kindness comes into play!
