Good luck or Lucky?
Man, I’m lucky, I’m so lucky, all I do is win. At least that’s what I tell myself. In this week of St. Patrick’s Day I thought I would share my luck of the Irish attitude with you. Ten years ago I decided to reframe my words. I got tired of hearing myself and others say, “I never win; I always lose, I’m so unlucky, I never win.” So, I decided to say and believe that I’m lucky and I’m a winner.
It changed everything, truly; first I started to have more fun with having a chance to win, then I engaged, got excited, and actually started to win at the activities, games, and drawings that I participated in. Now, don’t tell me that it’s just me; this works for anyone. It changes how we approach life, work, or even a drawing.
I recently went to see the Price is Right at Mystic, and I kept telling people I would be picked. When they asked why I thought that, I just said “I like to think positive.” I was the sixth name chosen out of over 3000. I think in life we often get what we expect. If we expect to lose, fail or struggle, most likely that’s what we’ll find. But if we expect to win, be chosen or succeed that’s what we’ll also find. Even if I didn’t get chosen for the Price is Right I would have still won by having a great night out with friends.
I don’t believe in superstition, in fact I got married on Friday the 13th and had a baby on another Friday the 13th so no silly day will scare me, though I do like the luck of the Irish on the 17th of March. So again, I’m here to remind you that life is about choices, perspectives and attitude. I choose to believe you are all winners, you just haven’t all seen the prize yet.
Do you feel lucky?
Do you consider yourself a winner?
Does your attitude need a shift?
