If you’re looking for information about a man named Jack who sells medical marijuana, you’re in the wrong place. He probably lives in California. I won’t be talking about that kind of Jack Pot, here.
Are you lucky when it comes to winning contests? I’m not. If I do win, it’s usually something that I don’t want. For instance, I won a frozen turkey from a radio station in 1982. It reminds me of that classic episode of Friends when…
I’ve never won the lottery, hit the Jackpot in Las Vegas, or won anything worth talking about…except the frozen turkey. Even so, I don’t consider myself to be unlucky.
In life, we make our own luck. To be lucky in life, the first thing you have to do is…
place yourself in the path of opportunity
You’ll never win the contest if you don’t enter. You’ll never land the big job if your resume isn’t in the stack. A friend will never let you borrow his car if you don’t have any friends…or if they all travel by bike and bus. Secondly…
stop believing that luck only happens by chance
Not so. That’s why I never tell successful people that their success was based on luck.
You’re so lucky to be doing good at work…to be in shape…to have a degree…to have great kids…blah, blah, blah.
To tell someone that their achievements are based on luck is a sign of jealousy. It also disrespects all the hard work they put into reaching their goals. Instead, admire them. Emulate them. Don’t scream and curse at the sky for not making you as lucky. Sure, some people are better positioned than others in the game of life, but that doesn’t mean we can’t come from behind with our lucky rabbit feet and cross the finish line just as fast.
Do you consider yourself lucky?
