Title: Can you create more luck for yourself? You bet! Here are five ways to boost your luck and your influence. (Episode 186)
Topic: We’ve all heard stories about someone being in the right place at the right time, and what happened as a result. But, here’s the thing — under those exact same circumstances, would the same lucky break be conveyed to ANYONE who found themselves right there in that moment?
Is LUCK about what happens to us, or how we REACT?
As I thought back on my own life and on some of the “luckiest” people I’ve known, it occurred to me that there were a few things that seemed to impact their “luck,” and some specific things you can do to create a bit more luck for yourself.
5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO CREATE MORE LUCK:
1. PUT the best YOU forward (AND UNDERSTAND WHO SHE IS).
NOTE: THERE IS A “CONFIDENCE BONUS BOOST” WITH THIS ONE!
2. CHECK YOUR MINDSET
3. WHAT’S MOST VALUABLE TO YOU? WHAT ARE THOSE LINES YOU WILL NOT CROSS?
4. DO ONE THING EVERY SINGLE DAY TO IMPROVE YOURSELF AND THE WORLD
5. BEWARE THE “GRAND PLAN” — DON’T LET IT BLOCK YOUR VIEW OF POSSIBILITY & OPPORTUNITY
Adopting the strategies I talk about in Episode 186 increases the chances that when you find yourself in the right place and right moment, you’ll be ready for it, will be more likely to recognize it, and will be better prepared to leverage it to create more value for yourself and for others!
On that note — I wish you all the luck you can create for yourself, and that you can inspire in others. You get what you give afterall, and that can help you build and sustain greater influence to get what you want out of your life.
