What Makes You Feel Like the Luckiest Person in the World?
Do you believe that luck and good fortune are random events? Or do you believe that it is possible to improve your luck by changing your outlook?
What makes some people luckier than others?
live in the moment
dwell on the past
feel lucky just to be alive and give thanks for their health
neglect their health
give to others and want others to have as much good luck as they have
only celebrate their own achievements
know that they already have all the resources they need to make their dreams come true
always think that they must have more (beauty, education, wealth, time, etc) to make their dreams come true
Luck has a peculiar habit of favoring those who don't depend on it.— Author Unknown
If you want to feel luckier in life, change your perspective. Being lucky depends on your attitude just as much as it depends on the random things that happen to you. Feel lucky and you will be lucky.
Use your mind as your own lucky charm. The first thing that pushes good luck away from you and draws bad luck towards you is negative thoughts.
Help other people reach their goals if you want to have better luck in life, love and money. Giving to others and sharing your talents is a natural magnet that will draw good luck to you. What you put out there will come back to you. So if you want to feel lucky and blessed, do things for other people that make them feel lucky and blessed. Commit a random act of kindness. Give someone a compliment. Offer assistance to someone who seems to be struggling but is afraid to ask for help. Be someone else's anonymous guardian angel.
Improve your odds of finding good luck by opening your mind to new experiences. Diversify your life experiences and you increase your chances that you will stumble upon all the beautiful connections that the Universe has in store for you. Cut yourself off from other people and you cut yourself off from meeting the people who could help you reach your goals.
Write about having good luck. Make a list of all the things that have happened to you recently that made you feel blessed and lucky in life. Start a good luck journal and record all of the people, situations and circumstances that make you feel like a lucky person.
If you want to feel luckier in life, engage in activities that stimulate your creative mind. Creativity is an essential ingredient for serendipity – accidentally discovering new ways of doing things.
Pray for good luck and then let go of what that looks like. Let the Universe decide what kind of good luck it will shower upon you and then wait. Don't judge or try to figure out what the good luck is supposed to mean or why it happened to you. Just accept it, as it is. Shirley Temple said, "Good luck needs no explanation."
Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.— Dalai Lama XIV
What is the number one way to increase your good luck? Wish it upon someone else!
Wishing good luck to other people will bring good luck to you! If you aren't sure how to bless someone else with good luck and prosperity, here are a few popular good luck blessings:
"May your days be many and your troubles be few. May all God's blessings descend upon you. May peace be within you may your heart be strong. May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam."
"May good luck be your friend in whatever you do and may trouble be always a stranger to you."
May you have love that never ends, lots of money and lots of friends. Health be yours, whatever you do and may God send many blessings to you.
