Fortune Cookie Life Lesson #4
It is an excellent piece of skill to know how to guide your luck even while waiting for it.
Take a minute to think about the luckiest person you know. Why is this person so fortunate, and what makes them so lucky? Is it really luck that this person has or is it the skill that has brought them such good fortune? It isn’t so much that everything they touch turns to gold but rather the hard work that goes into attaining what they want out of life. Practice these skills, and you too may receive your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Prepare yourself for what you to succeed in. Do this by reading, learning, watching, and whatever else you can do to learn the skill that will bring you closer to what you want. All of your hard earned knowledge will pay off in the end, and you will know what it takes to get to the goal.
Have a vision.
Having a vision of what you want out of life keeps you motivated. Write it down in a journal, use a dry erase board to write down tasks, or better yet create a vision board to remind you of where you want to be in the not so distant future. A vision will tell you every day of the things you want to accomplish and make you want to do these things rather than dream about them.
Lucky breaks and hard work go hand in hand.
Hard work is essential to luck and the harder you work, the better your outcome will be. There may be days that you epically fail but don’t make that stop you from getting to the finish line. Hard work pays off, and soon you will see your luck changing for the better.
Choices create consequences.
We must never forget that the choices we make have good and bad consequences towards the outcome. It is absolutely ok to make a bad choice as long as we can recognize what the problem was and find another solution to get us to that final goal. If you make a choice that might not have been the best reevaluate the decision, learn from it and move on.
Remember not to take things that help you get lucky for granted.
We all have some kind of support that helps us along our paths in life. I know that I have learned some valuable life lessons from many people that have come along the way. They have all taught me precious life lessons, and for each one, I am grateful and acknowledge that I wouldn’t be where I am today.
If your waiting for luck to come your way, you might be waiting a very long time. Instead of waiting for your pot of gold to magically appear to make the decision to learn the skills that you need to get you what you want. At the bottom of the blog, you will find a list that can help you stay focused and motivated in attaining the skills to bring you the best luck.
