15 Ways to Make Your Own Luck
1. Visualize Your Goals
The first step is to visualize your goals! Picture where you want to be in the future prior to crafting a plan to get there. Identifying exactly what you need will give you the push and drive to go after your dreams. Once you have a clear vision in mind, luck will start appearing.
2. Find a Mentor
Don’t underestimate the power of asking for advice and gaining a different perspective when working out problems. Finding a mentor to coach you through challenges can help you feel less alone as you undergo changes in your life to achieve long-term ambitions.
3. Embrace Learning Opportunities
Even if you are no longer enrolled in formal schooling, never stop embracing any learning opportunity that comes your way! Seek extra courses, certifications, or internships to help you dive into new industries of interest. Along the way, you will find new opportunities that can help you achieve your goals.
4. Speak Kindly To Yourself
Be sure to speak kindly for yourself, even if your journey to luck isn’t progressing the way you want it to. Positive affirmations can be extremely beneficial in helping to boost your confidence and improve resiliency.
5. Have Humor When You Face Failures
When you are faced with failure, learn to laugh at yourself instead of shying away from your goals after being confronted with setbacks.
6. Be Patient With Your Process
The process of achieving luck in your life will be a long journey. Be patient with yourself, as great opportunities will not present themselves overnight! You have to go through trial and error periods in order to find what works best for you.
7. Plan For The Future
One of the best things you can do to help prepare for your future is to come up with a game plan. This way, you will be more accountable and be able to stay on track when it comes to attracting luck into your life!
8. Reflect On How Far You Have Come
Don’t forget to reflect on how far you have come. Look back on where you were at the beginning of your journey to attracting luck. Then, think of how far left you have to go!
9. Take Calculated Risks
Taking risks is all part of the learning process. This doesn't mean that you have to risk losing opportunities that you have worked hard for. Take calculated risks and decide what is worth leaving behind in order to achieve what you want as an end goal.
10. Trust Yourself
Trust your gut! If an opportunity presents itself and seems like it would be a good fit, go for it! Don’t let valuable experiences pass you by due to waiting for the approval of others.
11. Ask For Help When You Need It
Even the luckiest people need help every now and then. Don’t feel as though your journey to attracting luck needs to be a solo adventure. If you are looking for advice or support when transitioning to new opportunities, find a support system that can help guide you!
12. Take Breaks
Attracting luck can sometimes feel like a full-time job. Daring to take new chances is overwhelming and can feel exhausting! Don’t forget to take breaks and get back to work after you feel rested.
13. Practice Self-Care
Making your own luck is a very personal process. As a result, you must make sure to prioritize self-care. This way, you will be able to better get to know yourself and manage your emotions.
14. Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
When making your own luck, don’t sweat the small stuff! If you make little mistakes every now and then, pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
15. Celebrate Your Accomplishments
When you start attracting your own luck, make time to celebrate your accomplishments! Taking pride in yourself and your work can feel uncomfortable at times. However, this is a key aspect of the growth process and will help you stay fueled to continue working towards your goals.
Now, go out there and start attracting luck for yourself!
