According to Arthur Shopenhauer, “luck shuffles the cards, but we play.” You may have had a bad game at this point, but you can be the winner next time. That’s right, because attitude, wisdom, experience and patience can be decisive.
Being lucky is not winning the lottery or filling yourself with charms, it goes further. The only thing that can help us “have good luck” is not a four-leaf clover, but to meet our goals and objectives. We must not trust that problems will solve alone, but neither should we close our eyes and believe that luck will solve everything for us.
Six secrets to being lucky
The wind can always blow in your favor, even if you think otherwise. Luck is as if it were a seed, depending on where we plant it, we will have different fruits.
If we grow it in fertile soil and water it periodically, there is a better chance that it will germinate and we can harvest. If, otherwise, we leave it abandoned in a sandy soil, do not water it and do not pay attention to it, it will be almost impossible for something good to grow from there. How to attract luck?
The lucky ones are those who work to achieve their dreams, not, as is believed, those who “have been touched by the magic wand.”
Do whatever it takes to meet your goals, create the right circumstances to achieve them, create intermediate goals, etc. If you are looking for a job, for example, it will not be “luck” that decides the position, but your way of getting a good interview in an interesting company. If you are prepared, you can get the job you always dreamed of.
“The luck favors only the prepared mind.”
2. Change your strategy
Sometimes it may be necessary to modify the way we see or act in order to “get lucky.” Surely you know many people who try hard, it seems that nothing can change their destiny. It is not about good or bad luck, but about knowing how to act in the right way or knowing the exact moment in which to change course or direction. Instead of accumulating failures, innovate.
3. Let them help you
Loneliness is not good for those who are looking for “luck.” According to the popular saying, she is not a recommended counselor either. Having alliances with other people, asking for advice or allowing them to collaborate on your projects is also a way to be lucky. The more hands there are to help, the easier it will be for you to succeed in what you set out to do.
4. Draw a route
When you are traveling on the road in search of good luck, you need to know the exact direction to reach your destination. Seneca said “there is no favorable wind for those who do not know where they are going.” Mark a path or a route and follow it, so it will be easier for you to reach a good port.
5. Persevere and you will succeed
Another popular saying that is perfectly suited to the search for luck (yes, at this point we can already say that luck is something that is sought, not that it falls from the sky). Projects that really pay off are long, expensive, and difficult.
If you are persistent, you make an effort and do not skimp on time, you can make everything you want come true. Make a plan, and follow it to the letter, do your best to reach that goal, whatever it takes.
“The best luck of all is the luck of doing something for yourself.”
6. Recognize the good
Many times we focus on what we would like to have and not on what we already have. If you think you are unlucky it is because you have not taken a look around you. Your family, your partner, your job, your house may not be taken from a fairy tale or a dream, but if you have all of it, you can consider yourself a really lucky person.
