Creating Your Own Luck in Life and as a Rehab Facility Owner
Some people have all the luck, or so we think. However, luckiness has a lot less to do with the universe favoring someone than it does with how they think and act. Lucky people tend to find opportunity in the challenges they face, seek to be in the right place at the right time, build connections, find opportunities, and have the mindset to respond to the chances they are given.
Luck is ultimately about increasing the probability that you will get what you want. The less you leave to chance, the more luck you are likely to have.
How to make your own luck
Here is a list of ways that you can create luck in your life to benefit your personal and professional endeavours:
Accept setbacks: Part of luck (and success) is acknowledging that setbacks and failures are guaranteed to happen. Be sure to plan for them so that you can adequately react when they arise.
Change your routine: Sticking to the same schedule and doing the same things are likely to lead to the same results. If you want to expand your opportunities, it is important to try new things, explore new places, and meet new people. The more you do, learn, and try, the more likely it is that good things will happen.
Visualize what it will take: Visualizing good fortune can help you reach those milestones. When you have a goal in mind, or if there is something you are wishing will happen, visualize the steps you need to take. Try to imagine achieving your goal, and work backwards to where you are now to determine what you need to do.
Take chances: Push yourself beyond your comfort zone from time to time and try to be versatile. You are likely to encounter opportunities that you never thought were possible, and you will be in the right mind frame to pursue them.
Stay in the present: Try to not dwell on the past, focus on things you cannot change, or worry too much about the future. By staying present in your mindset, you can notice the little things that can make a big difference. Being present will also help you identify opportunities available to you.
Get inspired by others: Try to notice how successful and lucky people conduct themselves and implement those words, actions, and thoughts into your own life.
Play the odds: While you might get lucky even when the odds are against you, it is more likely that you will find success when you play your odds and make calculated decisions for your life and business. For example, luck might win you a hand in poker, but strategy and calculation will win you the game.
Be flexible: It is important to plan ahead and create goals, but also remember that luck and plans rarely happen exactly as we hope. By remaining flexible, you can react to the changes in your plan and pursue opportunities as they present themselves.
Ask for what you want: Being lucky often means that someone says yes to you; agrees to your request, says yes to your pitch, approves your proposal, etc. Remember, people cannot say yes unless you ask. Unlucky people wait to be discovered and given what they want. Lucky people discover themselves and ask for what they want. Similarly, you can tell others what you want to increase your opportunities. The more people that know about your goal, the more likely it is that someone will present you with an opportunity towards it.
Focus on the positives: Focus on the things that are going right in your life rather than having the “grass is greener on the other side” mentality. By looking for positives and how to create a positive situation out of a negative one, you are more likely to turn a challenging situation into a positive outcome.
Believe in luck (and hard work): You can increase your luckiness by believing that you are lucky and preparing for it. Most people who believe they are lucky are also willing to put in hard work to create their own luck. Be aware of self-fulfilling prophecies; if you focus on what you can do, it is more likely that you will do it. Likewise, when you believe nothing good will come, no matter how hard you work, it is also likely you are right.
