Be Lucky

Luck over time is inevitable. We all get lucky at some point in life. If you show up with good work and generous action. Sooner or later, something that appears to others to be lucky will appear. It is said to be a symptom of productive contributions. It rarely happens when you need it most or in equal proportion to what feels fair (to you or others), but it happens. The trap is hoping that a short-term focus on getting lucky on demand will pay off. A good example, in cases of betting.

Many define luck as an event brought by chance rather than action. Wikipedia’s description is. The phenomenon that defines the experience of positive, negative, or improbable events. The naturalistic interpretation is that positive and negative events happen all the time in human lives, both due to random and non-random, natural and artificial processes. That even improbable events can happen by random chance.

I find the best definition to be; luck is when preparedness meets opportunity. Luck often happens when you have prepared for a thing. When an opportunity that aligns with what you have prepared for presents itself. You can seize the moment. The act of preparedness, in this case, may vary from aligning to the thing in mind. To actual work, lots of effort, hours, and investment put towards the attainment of a specific goal. Then there is the feeling of being lucky that brings luck. A good example again of luck would be in bets. Many people bet hoping to get lucky and win a jackpot, they pray, and some believe and act in faith. To some extent, that can be qualified as an effort. There is a slight probability of getting lucky. But there can be another person who has placed the bet and studied it. If it is a card game, chances are they know all they need to know about cards. If it is a random bet on numbers, they have researched and mastered the law of averages on it. Giving them a higher probability of winning.

“It’s the law of averages: put in more, come out with more” Bruce L

You can affirm luck in your life and prepare for it. Put the effort that aligns with the thing desired, then be open to receive. Expect a surprise or better, invoke the law of surprises. Expect signs of luck like a four-leaf clover, a ladybird or lady luck cross your path once in a while, feel lucky. You can also recite abundance affirmations. Some good affirmations that go well with luck or positive expectancy are. “I am wide awake to my good, I never miss a trick” or “something good is about to happen”. Have a lucky day.

  1. Happiness often comes as a surprise. Because it eludes those who want to force or claim it. It comes when you don’t look for it and when you least expect it.
    Like a wild animal, it cannot be caught, tamed or bred. Happiness must be free, otherwise it is not happiness.

  2. I really like your beautiful blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. See you soon. 🙂

  3. when an unexpected thing in favour of a person happens which turns to be beneficial to him can be termed as ‘Luck.’ good passage. but in real life as one is aware it is 95% hard work and only 5.% luck.

  4. Learn to recognize good luck when it’s waving at you, hoping to get your attention.” Sally Koslow…. 👍Yes this is so true. I think often people who bemoan others luck are the ones who didn’t / or who can’t notice luck waving at them. We are continually being blessed… If we open our eyes we will see it.

    👍Yes luck is when preparedness meets opportunity. If we sit around wishing but not preparing we will a) not notice luck waving and b) not be able to run with luck even if we did notice her. Dreams are good but we need to prepare the way for luck to help it along. It’s such an alchemic process. Sometimes being prepared means taking bold and courageous steps. That can be scary. But necessary. Thank you for a great post. Always good to ponder on these things. 😉☺️

    1. Its a very piwerful. Reminds us importance of preparation and being present. You’ve said it well. Goal setting and having enough courage are some of the basic necessities I discovered need improvement on my end. The balance is really important and if consistent on this making it a habit, one can notice gradual incremental growth. I’m glad you enjoyed the article. 😊
