“Everything that happens is for your own best interest.”
A Course In Miracles
Luck is a fascinating and frequently misunderstood phenomenon.
For one thing, luck can only be recognized in hindsight. We actually don’t know, at the time, what anything really means.
What we initially perceive as “bad luck” may, in the long run, be the best thing that could ever happen.
Take my story.
When I got a tax bill for over $1 million dollars, I felt like the unluckiest person on the planet. No one could’ve ever convinced me otherwise.
My ex-husband, who got me in this mess, left the country. My father refused to lend me the money. I had nowhere to turn.
Fast forward 30 years. I now realize that my father’s refusal was a stroke of luck. If he’d bailed me out, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today.
I’m convinced you can amp up your luck by altering your point of view.
When I got the tax bill, my friend gave me an affirmation to say when I’d freak out: “This million is making me millions.”
And it actually did!
The key: instead of bemoaning a “raw deal,” start searching for the potential gift. Luck comes to those who suspend judgment and seek out lessons.
