Can You Create Luck?

The universe, when combined with your subconscious mind, can accomplish extraordinary things.  However, just like any tool, we must know how to use it, practice using it, and allow the required time for the project to come together.

I believe luck is the universe working together with our subconscious mind.  Some people are luckier than others because of the thoughts and energy they sent into the universe.  Our awareness through the use of our reticular activator helps us to see opportunities presented by the universe. Yet, most of us don’t put in the necessary reps to properly utilize this power.  Now, before you think this is too woo-woo for you watch this real-world case study The Secret of Luck by Darren Brown (it is 45-minutes and worth the time investment).

Some people say luck is where preparedness meets opportunity, and yes, I believe that is true. Still, preparedness comes from first putting in the necessary mental reps of visualizing, believing you can, and creating the reality in your mind’s eye.  “Opportunity” is the universe giving you your shot.  When the universe gives you your “SHOT,” you have to be ready to take it.  Be like Alexander Hamilton and resolve to not throwing away your shot.

Daily visualizations of what you want, who you want to be, and what you want to be doing are a crucial part of success.  These can be as short as three minutes if you “don’t have the time.”  The thing about not having the time to plan your life and visualize your life is that then your life lives you instead of you living it. Mapping and envisioning the life you want is vital to living the life you want.
