How to be a lucky person

Life is a colorful garden of experiences. There are flowers to brighten and enliven your world, but there are also thorns that you must watch for. While you may enjoy the beauty and the scents of these flowers in the garden, the thorns are always lying beneath and waiting for the chance to lay their hands on you. As you walk in the garden, wouldn’t it be so much nicer if you only have the flowers without the thorns? If you can have all the beautiful things without the ugly stuff that life has to offer? Maybe you need some more luck!

cloverThe word “luck” typically rings a positive bell. If there is one thing that each person needs in his daily encounter with the world, then there is nothing better than that thing to be luck. A lucky person is a happy person, and who does not want to be happy? So surely, to be happy, you will want to know how to be lucky.

Luck is typically equated to chance, destiny, and fate. These concepts usually refer to things, wonderful happenings and events, which are out of a person’s control. On the contrary, there is also an opposite concept to being lucky, that of being unlucky, which also denotes events out of a person’s grasp, but refer to negative occurrences. Being lucky and being unlucky are but typical, but there are certain techniques to maximize your luck and say goodbye to misfortune.

Actually, you can have luck in your palm. You can actually have it under your control. You can charm it to come to you! There are three simple things that you can try. The first thing is to believe that luck is within your grasp and that good fate is at your side. Each time that you wake up in the morning, welcome luck into your life! Everything must come from within you. You are the primary agent who can give life to luck. If you believe you are lucky, then you most probably are.

The second secret to being lucky is to tune your perspective. The roses and the thorns in the garden of life are but basic ingredients to living. You cannot have the one without the other. They are part of one body, and so are joy and sorrow twins. Life may not always be good, but you do not have to fret each time it gets a little darker than you expect it to be. For every single thorn, try to count ten roses. Sometimes, you may even write down all the lucky things that happen to you daily. It will help you see how blessed you are.

The last step to being lucky is to loosen up. When you are so hooked up on achieving something, you tend to narrow your mind and your vision to the point that the only remaining thing that you see is your goal. Without you knowing, you will have your entire life revolving around it. It will eat you up, consume you like fire, and may even drive you crazy. What you need to do is to relax and unwind. When you try to loosen up a bit, you will be able to widen out your mindset and be able to see a lot more opportunities than you think possible.

Luck is within your grasp. It is there in you, waiting to be awakened. You don’t need any spell to make it come alive. You just need some techniques, and you will be able to invite luck to your side.
