About Being Lucky

November 12th, 2010 by Hank

The truth is that being “lucky” doesn’t have much to do with luck at all. The most successful people create their own luck. They appear lucky because their focus and preparation have put them in the right place to make good things happen. The timing is never right unless you are prepared to seize the moment. Luck is preparation meeting opportunity.

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have all the luck? Maybe you are one of the “lucky” ones. In general, “lucky” people achieve excellence by focusing on:

Forgiveness vs.    Anger
Others vs.    Self
Opportunities vs.    Problems
Gratitude vs.    Envy
Abundance vs.    Scarcity
Today vs.    Yesterday
Building up vs.    Breaking down
Humor vs.    Drama
Controllable things vs.    Uncontrollable things
Giving vs.    Taking
