The Luck Equation
In the ancient Roman world, Fortuna was the goddess of luck. But if you're seeking more of her favor in your life, there's something you need to understand.
Luck isn't a one-size-fits-all phenomenon.
There are four different shades of Lady Luck.
First, we have Blind Luck. The flip of a coin, a bolt from the blue. It's as fickle as a summer storm and as elusive as a leprechaun.
Second comes Luck from Motion. This isn't bestowed by fairy godmothers. It's the luck you earn by moving, by doing. It's the golden dust stirred up by your own footsteps.
Then we find Luck from Preparation. It's not about hoping for the best. It's about being ready for the best when it shows up. It's the key that fits the door when opportunity knocks.
Last but not least, there's Luck from Attraction. The type of luck that gravitates towards you, captivated by your energy, your ethos, your aura. It's the hummingbird drawn to a flower's nectar.
It's easy to feel at the mercy of Blind Luck. After all, we can't control the roll of the dice.
But here's a thought - what if we're not meant to control luck, but to create it?
Imagine you're a scientist. The more experiments you run, the more likely one will succeed. That's Luck from Motion.
Consider a musician. The more they practice, the better they become, and the more likely they are to hit the perfect note. That's Luck from Preparation.
And think of a magnet. The stronger it is, the more it attracts (aka. The more you’re focused on and willing to accept that thing into your life). That's Luck from Attraction.
So, how do you increase your fortune in this unpredictable world?
By understanding these different aspects of luck. By cultivating a mindset that attracts, prepares for, and moves towards luck.
This is not just about being lucky. It's about expanding your 'luck surface area'.
It's about inviting Fortuna to your doorstep, by transforming yourself into a beacon of action, preparation, and energy.
Make your life a magnet for good fortune, not by waiting for a lucky break, but by being the lucky break.
Remember, luck isn't just something that happens to us.
Luck is something we make, something we become, something we are.
So go on, break the shackles of blind luck. Embrace motion, preparation, and attraction.
Become your own four-leaf clover.
