How You Can Create Luck In Everyday Life

How You Can Create Luck In Everyday Life

Creating luck in everyday life is not about carrying a rabbit’s foot around with you, avoiding black cats or wearing lucky pants. There is one main difference between people who are lucky and unlucky—and that’s their mindset.

People who seem to have all the luck are not usually blessed by an outrageous amount of good fortune. They simply have a healthy attitude, which enables them to capitalize on situations. Those who are closed minded and negative simply don’t allow as many good things into their lives, or if good things appear, they don’t even recognize them.

Having a positive way of organizing your thoughts allows you to create your own luck in everyday life. Here are 11 top tips for creating your own luck.

Focus On What You Want

Whatever you focus on, you tend to get more of. Have you ever broken a limb, and suddenly noticed how many other people there were walking around on crutches or with plaster casts? It wasn’t that there were suddenly more people having accidents, it was that you were noticing them more because that’s what you were paying attention to. Many people spend time thinking about what they don’t want—and, lo and behold, that same horrible stuff keeps showing up in their lives. If you pay attention to what you do want instead, you’ll end up becoming more aware of avenues to getting it.

Be Flexible

Closed-minded people don’t often come up with solutions, because they see only one way of achieving something, and if that doesn’t work out, they just give up. If you open your mind to alternative options and possibilities, you’ll find that things start working out where you thought they wouldn’t. It seems like luck, but it’s your open-mindedness and flexibility that allowed it to happen.

Be Determined

Many celebrities, tycoons and business owners are called lucky, with everyone assuming that they got a break to be where they are now. But often success is down to determination rather than luck. If you work hard and do the right things, it will be acknowledged, and you will be rewarded with more luck in everyday life.

See the Good in the Past

It is easy to believe that you never have any luck in everyday life if you don’t seem to be getting any breaks. People sometimes bemoan their past for holding them back. They blame their parents, their schooling or their background for not setting them up for success. But having had a difficult life gives you unique lessons and develops strengths and qualities you might never have had if you hadn’t been through tough patches. Be grateful for the good that came from your past.

Try Something New

Luck doesn’t just happen upon us—it comes to us when we’re open. Trying something new is a great way of getting more opportunities. Learning a new skills, visiting a new place, or trying a new hobby are all great ways of expanding your opportunities and your mindset.

Be Grateful For What You Have

Some people are already lucky, and they just don’t know it. Instead of focusing on what’s lacking, look at how lucky you already are. You no doubt have some wonderful friends, family, a roof over your head and food on the table. By acknowledging these things regularly, you can instantly feel more lucky.

Network

The more people you connect with, the luckier you will be. Knowing different people can get you access to skills, opportunities, connections and more. You never know what wonderful chances each individual could bring to you or how they might enrich your life, until you get to know them.

Be Generous

If you ever want other people to give you opportunities, you have to consider what sort of vibe you are putting out into the world. You can not expect to receive if you never give. Be generous with your time and attention, and you’ll be surprised how many lucky opportunities people may offer you.

Ask For Help

Sometimes people would be prepared to help us out, if they only knew what we needed. If you need a hand with dealing with something, rather than waiting for someone to offer you a lucky break, take the initiative and ask them if they will help you out.

Be Positive About the Future

People who view the future as threatening, dangerous or uncertain are unlikely to draw any luck to them. Having a negative view of what is to come makes you likely to be mentally and emotionally withdrawn into a place where you won’t even see any lucky opportunities. Be positive and excited about what they future may hold, and you should find many lucky opportunities on the horizon.

Take Action

You’ll never create any luck if you sit there waiting for it to fall into your lap. Take steps towards your goals and dreams and greet every challenge with a positive mindset. You will find you create more luck in everyday life.
