Are You Lucky Today?
Luck is not an unknown phenomenon but a scientifically explained result of specific alignments. When a person is lucky, there will always be certain characteristics present in his or her life.
You can prove the science of luck in your own life.
Next time you are having one of those "lucky" days, stop, take a look at yourself and notice the patterns of your present life. You will observe specific and familiar occurrences that are producing your luck. Some of these patterns are as follows:
Good Ethics Brings Good Luck
Living an ethical life. Instead of feeling desperate, do things the right way. The right way of life is making choices according to what you know is the right thing to do rather than desperately trying to get over on life or others.
Everyone has a choice of right or wrong; good or bad. When we make choices that are right regardless of the apparent negative outcome, luck will ultimately follow.
Many people adjust their personal ethics (choice of right or wrong) according to what they desperately need or want, rather than living by a standard, personal code of ethics.
Make decisions based on your consciousness of right or wrong. Doing good and being good is one of the best ways to generate luck.
Are Your Feelings Lucky?
Feel lucky. Having the sense of being lucky produces the consciousness of luck and of course, good fortune is attracted to that mindset.
One very common trait of lucky people is they will tell you, "I'm so lucky...." Expectancy in anything (including luck) transforms things from thought into a reality.
The luckier you feel, the more luck will surround you.
Observing Luck Brings More Luck
- No matter what comes before you, search for the good in it. This is very similar to #2 except you are actually on a mission to search for the good outcome of things.
I once said to a senior lady, "My life is filled with miracles". This wise 93 year-old responded, "Dr. Duckett, everyone's life is filled with miracles but most of us don't take the time to stop and appreciate them."
If you want more good fortune in your life, stop and appreciate the many miracles that occur each day. These little miracles can be as simple as finding a nearby parking place, making it to a meeting just in time, getting a sale when you weren't expecting it, having a child smile at you, or any other event you can identify as a unique miracle. The more you look, the more you'll find.
Hard Work Produces Luck
To create more luck work harder with a sense of deservingness.
As I mentioned in a previous writing, I love Abraham Lincoln's famous quote, "The harder I work, the luckier I am."
If you want to feel lucky, work harder (and smarter) and along with your labor, tell yourself, "I am working so hard, I really deserve more."
No matter what you're doing, remind yourself how hard you're working and your earnestness is a display to the Universe that you deserve more.
When you exercise, get up early, read a book, or anything else that is improving your life, remind your subconscious mind how you deserve more.
Persistence Produces Luck
- Keep going. If you persistently go toward any worthy goal, you will face obstacles. Eventually, you will be able to overcome any obstacle and achieve your intention.
When you drudge through the challenges and misery of failures, sooner or later, you'll achieve your goal. When you achieve enough goals in life, people will look at you and say, "You are so lucky. Look at the success you have experienced in your life." Of course, you will think to yourself, "Luck had nothing to do with it. I just worked hard and never gave up."
Just The Facts....
Of course, I could make this E-zine message more complicated and impress you with lengthy, intellectual research on the subject of luck, but the truth would be, "The essence of luck is always related to the above five things."
Where is the science of luck in this message? The definition of scientific proof is, "Duplicating the same result in a controlled setting." The science of luck is, "When any person does the above mentioned five things for just 72 hours, that individual will experience a significant increase in their luck." What do you think would happen if you were to expand the time frame to one-week, one-month, one-year or your entire life? Of course, you would create much more luck in your life.
If you are up to the challenge, apply the above five principles for the next 72-hours. Then, let me know how lucky you have become.
The old saying can be rephrased from, "Most people are about as happy as they decide to be." to "Most people are about as lucky as they decide to be."
Now it is time for me to go and create some luck in my day. Until we talk again in the near future, I am
In loving service,
