Lucky Duck

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:01 am

Did you ever notice that some people are luckier than others? I count myself among the fortunate.

I believe we have shortchanged the Abraham Lincoln phrase, “You’re about as happy as you make up your mind to be.”

I think the word “Happy” can be replaced with any number of words and the wisdom remains the same.

“Lucky” is one of those words.

We tend to view lucky as a condition – finding a four leaf clover, winning the lottery, not waiting in line at the DMV. It’s more than that.

Luck is a mindset.

There are those that will tell you that you will attract what you think about most. I think it’s simpler than that.

I believe you attract more of what you are open to, not necessarily what you think about most.

When you are open to something, it’s as though you are putting a lookout in place to spot it anytime it shows up. It’s the lookout that alerts you to possibilities you may never see on your own.

This lookout is a mindset – a filter you put in place that searches for what you are looking for.

When you are open to luck, you are likely to see more of it come your way.

It’s like optimism. Optimism is a filter that takes off the blinders of limited thinking and alerts you to heretofore hidden possibilities.

Here’s a practice that will open you up to luck: Bless luck wherever you see it. It will get you into the mindset of seeing luck everywhere.

Being open to something is the quickest way I know to multiply the times you see that something show up in your life.

Psychology calls this phenomenon, “Selective Perception.”

When you selectively set your filter for luck, you open yourself up to its presence. The odds for luck showing up are much better than flipping a coin.

 

All the best,

John
