Create Your Own Luck!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to talk about luck.

What is luck? According to, “Luck is a force that seems to operate good or ill in a person’s life, as in shaping circumstances, events or opportunities.” Their sentence example is about having bad luck. In fact, the top three examples are negative. So even the dictionary is skewed to negative thinking? I think we can do better.

Here is my definition of luck: “You don’t receive luck, you create it!”

First is to believe that you are lucky. When you believe, you will persevere and move through challenges, which will lead you to success.

Second is to expect good things. And yes, you are worthy to receive the good.

Third is to be positive and optimistic. Create positive affirmations such as, “I am lucky” or “I am successful.”

Fourth, trust your intuition. It puts you on the right path, leading to fewer mistakes.

And fifth, visualize manifesting your wishes. What do you look like when you achieve the goal? How do you feel? Confident? Happy?

“When you can see it, you can be it!”

Your dreams can come true if you believe it is possible. And as for rituals and good luck charms, they will only work if you believe they will. It’s just like the placebo pill.

“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.” Brian Tracy

Repeat after me, “I create my own luck.” When you believe, luck will follow.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
