If You Want To Be Lucky…

If you want to be lucky, work harder than everyone else around you. If you want to be lucky, practice delivering kindness to those you meet each day.

If you want to be lucky, develop new skills before you need them.

If you want to be lucky, be a good friend to the ones you already have.

If you want to be lucky, be deliberate about following through on the promises you make.

If you want to be lucky, say “Please” and “Thank You” more often.

If you want to be lucky, stop completing and start competing.

If you want to be lucky, keep looking for solutions to the obstacles standing in your way.

If you want to be lucky, take action when you feel fearful, frightened, or weak.

If you want to be lucky, push past your limits and try new things.

If you want to be lucky, spend less time complaining and more time fixing things.

If you want to be lucky, give what you have and give first.

If you want to be lucky, go out of your way to make a difference.

If you want to be lucky, stop expecting to get lucky.

Just keeping doing the right thing until you are where you want to be.

You might not be lucky, but you’ll certainly feel like it.
