Defining Luck

Defining Luck

“Luck is being in the right place at the right time, but

location and timing are some extent

under our control.”

Natasha Josefowitz PhD, Poet, Author, Columnist

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

 

Defining luck

 

Your luck is what you make it.

 

People who are seen as luckily . . . . have put themselves into a position to take advantage of the opportunities that they have created.

 

Having luck . . . . is being prepared for the changing conditions in your life.

 

Being in the right place . . . . is putting yourself into the position to find the opportunity and to recognize the opportunity.

 

The right time . . . .  is grasping the opportunity and making the most out of the opportunities that you find.

 

Here’s the key . . . . a big part of being considered luckily is in your attitude . . . . your . . . . thinking . . . . and in having awareness.

 

Thinking with an open mind moves you out of the status quo and into the possibility zone. Your opportunities are NOT in the status quo there in the POSSIBILITY ZONE.

 

Also with an open mind you will have the awareness to seek out . . . . and see the opportunities before other people recognize them or act on them.

 

Defining luck . . . . is the people who have it . . . . make it.

Lou, good topic this morning!  I will be meeting with other business folks today to discuss other ways of generating streams of income.  I am amazed how many times they look past the opportunities, due to such things as:  not being prepared, too busy, having a closed mind, etc.  To me, LUCK has always been, Laboring Under Correct Knowledge!!  Just as you defined it, being prepared to recognize an opportunity in order to create your luck.  Opportunity does not wait for convenience!!

that's right -- you create your own luck by trying different things and coming into contact with lots of different people.  this will naturally present many opportunities to you, that would have otherwise never materialized
