Is this your lucky day? Of course, there’s the actual history of St. Patrick, but I won’t repeat it here. You can look it up if you haven’t heard it yet. What about the things we think about around this holiday? Like luck.
When you look up quotes about luck it’s surprising:
~ I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often. – Brian Tracy
~ The amount of good luck coming your way depends on your willingness to act. – Barbara Sher
~ The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work. – Harry Golden
~ Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get. – Ray Kroc
~ Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck. – Dalai Lama
~ Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises. – Demosthenes
~ The harder I work, the luckier I get. – Samuel Goldwyn
Reminds me of a little book I read recently called The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Great story about the five laws of stratospheric success. Would you like to know what those are? Surprisingly, not what you think! Don’t you think success looks like getting, and then getting more? Just look at the magazines and the news articles about what we think of as “successful” people; and the stories of how ‘those kind of people’ made it where they are by stepping on us little folks on their way up. We may have to adjust our thinking.
Got news for you! Evidently studies by some pretty smart people show that the really successful ones are in a variety of ways much bigger givers than they are getters. Seems there is a “magic” in an attitude of value and service, putting other people’s interests first, giving of yourself. One more thing . . . when those amazing traits are taken to heart and practiced, the real kind of luck shows up. You just have to be open to receive it.
Good luck to you!
