Create your own luck.
Because the truth is, luck isn’t something that someone hands over to you. It’s something that you create for yourself. It’s something that’s created by those who make the sacrifice of putting their nose to the grindstone and working hard at their craft, relationship or hobby.
Only YOU can increase your luck. Here’s how:
1. Focus on Opportunity
Lucky people see all situations – even problems and complaints – as opportunities. Many people might perceive these situations as unlucky, but you have to see it as an opportunity to progress. Every problem, complaint, and difficult moment is a chance to become successful at what you want to do.
2. Persist Until You Are Successful
This quality is necessary to make any dream a reality. If you want to increase your chances of getting lucky, you have to keep putting yourself out there until you become lucky. You can’t expect to do something once and get lucky. You have to keep doing it over and over again until you overcome all the odds.
3. Take Risks
No one gets lucky without taking risks. If you don’t ever put yourself out there, how do you even expect yourself to get lucky? It’s impossible. Put your foot out, step forward, and take the risk to achieve the kind of luck you want to get. Remember, “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
The bottom line is, you can’t get very far by only relying on luck. You have to rely on yourself to create your own opportunities and to create your own success. Only then will you be lucky.
