To those of you who haven't had your 'lucky break' yet, it's easy to credit other people’s successes to the luck of the draw, or that the Divine Dealer dealt them a better hand of cosmic cards. I think the Divine Dealer has more important things to do than play cards or randomly pass out winning tickets to the lunar lottery. No matter what cards you were dealt, you have to learn to play them right and not rely on a chivalrous shuffle. You can even scope out your horoscope and thank your lucky stars, but until you stop putting your faith in fate and start realizing your own power and potential to decide your own destiny, you’ll miss out on the true miracles in life.
Too often, we reassign our resiliency in rising above our mediocrity to wishful thinking. Thus, we resign ourselves to become and remain unhappy and unsuccessful. Success comes by choice more often chance. It is what’s in our hearts, not the stars that will steer us towards a better life. So, it’s time to stop rolling the dice and start rolling up our sleeves and get to work on making our lives what we want them to be. Stop looking for a lucky leprechaun to loot, and give the rabbit back its foot because here are some less magical, but more practical ways to make your own lucky breaks.
INSPIRATION: Think about what you love to do, who you love to be with and places you love to go. This will provide ideas of who you are and what you need to do to become that person.
PREPARATION: Luck doesn't exist. It's a misnomer for miracles. Luck is putting your faith in trinkets and treasures. Miracles are doing all you can do to change your life and trusting that what you lack will be provided.
PERSPIRATION: Making your own lucky breaks is tough. You will have some long days and lose some sleep, but your willingness to re-invest more time, trust and effort into re-inventing yourself and your life will be worth it.
DETERMINATION: Lucky breaks or not, you've got to keep pressing forward. If one idea doesn't work, create another one. Don't be afraid to change when needed. Even if your luck runs out it won't matter. Because you will have learned to lean on something greater than a field full of four-leaf clovers; the power of your heart. When you can rely on your heart more than wishful thinking it truly will be your lucky day!
