Master Your Luck
The word “luck” is persistently used in most societies and cultures. We hear people credit the word “luck” after a successful or happy spell in their lives. We hear of people in music, entertainment, sports and banking who credit luck as their secret weapon, “I was lucky to get a break” “I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time” “We had a bit of luck playing today” etc. The question is, does luck really exist or is it a mythology? If you want to believe in luck then go for it, however what someone really means when they say they were lucky is that they had a vision, worked hard, believed in their task, put in extra effort and went the extra mile, helping others along the way and capitalizing on every opportunity that presents itself.
In this universe, which is predominantly governed by the Laws of physics, “The Law of Cause & Effect” i.e. Karma, there are no accidents. The ideas and actions that you produce today are shaping your “future” experiences. Think about it. When someone declares they had a lucky break by being in the right place at the right time, was it not their thoughts, feelings & actions that guided them there? They had to make a decision to be at the place of their lucky break before they could actually take any action.
The truth is your thoughts and feelings create your perception of the world. Your perception becomes your reality. If you can learn to master your thought patterns, and develop emotional intelligence (emotional stability), you will have a more pleasant life.
We can say that we make our own luck however, never be fooled into thinking that the universe gives out luck like it’s a game of dice. After all, the world isn’t a poker table and God does not gamble. We have a choice how we want to live but it takes plenty of intelligent action and commitment. Make your own luck from this very moment and give everything you’ve got into the stream of life. Then watch what happens. In good time.
