Why are some people so lucky? Because they think differently

Why is it that some people appear to be naturally lucky? Why do they seem to lead charmed lives where everything they touch, magically turns to gold? Such people attract all the right breaks, scores of valuable opportunities and always seem to succeed – sometimes against all the odds.

It has nothing to do with an accident of birth. You may have been born with what most might consider to have been a silver spoon in your mouth, but that doesn’t mean you will be lucky – in fact there are numerous stories where privilege and wealth have been a curse rather than an advantage.

So what is it that lucky people have – that’s missing for the vast majority? Quite simply – naturally lucky people – think differently. They always expect to win and succeed at everything they do, but equally accept that when they fail, as we all do from time to time – they will learn from it.

So even failure is an advantage with naturally lucky people, who use that experience to go on to bigger and better things. These are the people who practice powerful positive thinking (PPT) and incorporate it in to their daily lives. They think positively, they use common sense to keep their dreams realistic and then take action to deliver them.

Those who consider themselves to be unlucky are never disappointed because their entire lifestyle is sub consciously geared to failure. These are the people who will always find it hard to succeed because they always believe that fate in some way will conspire to defeat them – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

There are a few things that you can eliminate immediately from your life which would be a good step in the right direction. Stop sneering for a start at people who you regard as more successful. Conscious and sub conscious thoughts and statements such as “money to money,” or “typical, he/she always wins,” rebound back on you and not the intended target of you anger.

Your sneering, your obvious jealousy and those comments merely tell the universe that the object of your derision is a success and you are not and probably never will be. That is an undeniable fact and will remain so unless you change your attitude and change the way you think. In fairness, these thoughts and words are probably not your fault but have been ingrained into you by circumstance over the years – so, what do you think - time for change or what.

Thought so - and here is how you too can be a success, that same lucky person, that individual, where everything you touch turns to wealth and happiness. It will not happen overnight, it will take a little bit of work on your part but everything is achievable.

Start by practicing PPT and sitting down and working out exactly what you want to do, what you want to achieve. Write down these ideas to impress them on to your mind. Add an ongoing programme to reach your goals. Successful business people work to a five or even a 10 year plan – they don’t expect things to happen overnight but are happy that everything is going in the right direction.

You must use common sense and keep your goals realistic otherwise you will never believe that they are possible – and if you do not believe then the universe won‘t either. There is nothing wrong with baby steps to begin with – remember the 10 year plan to get where you want to be and enjoy the successes on the way.

Once you have specified your goals then destroy the piece of paper that you wrote them down on – or delete your typing. The universe has got the message. Now I want you to forget what you have written down – don’t be like a dog with a bone - let it go. Your message has arrived and is in safe hands. And now is the time for action and only you will know what needs to be done to achieve those goals.

Yes there are going to be one or two setbacks on the way but it is not fate dealing you a blow it’s the universe suggesting that you have strayed off course a little and need to think again about your chosen route. The universe really wants you to reach your destination.

And as you succeed you will hear others sneering in the background because they will be jealous of your success and abilities to overcome obstacles and achieve goals. Ignore them - they are mistaking your drive, your success and your ability for good luck.
