You may know someone who seems unlucky, or maybe you feel that way yourself. Your inner voice screams, I can’t believe all the shit happening to me. I must be the unluckiest person alive. Or maybe, This isn’t my day... again.
You make plans, do your best to follow through with the details. You might overanalyze and still you wonder, Why in the world is my life so hard?
Life isn't about luck, it's about the way you internalize events and your outlook. The one thing you can do to turn your "luck" around, be positive!
I know it sounds corny, but the way you look at things ultimately shapes the way things will start to turn out, or at least effect you. Your actions in turn change, and next thing you know, your luck can turn right around.
We start with internal thoughts before we voice opinions and feelings. These secret musings become outward words we manifest.
It’s why your external change starts inside. Because when you deliver negative, discouraging messages to yourself, you are issuing a truth: I can’t do this. I can’t change this. Or, I am a victim.
Your unspoken thoughts become actions specifically designed to fail because you don’t believe in what you are doing, or what you are going after.
Swap those damaging thoughts for different ones: I can learn from this. What am I trying to accomplish? What is my gut telling me? Then separate your heart from your gut. What’s good for you? Get logical with your emotions. Forget what you want. What do you need?
Focus on building up your confidence when you go after your goals. I can do this. One setback is not going to keep me from my aim. Failure gives me the opportunity to learn.
The next time you feel disappointment, use it as an opportunity to change your voice. Get honest and fearless. Did things go south because the decision didn’t originate from your gut? Substitute beating yourself up for making mistakes by regrouping and refocusing. Tell yourself, I can do this because I say I can. I will do this because I believe I will. Repeat the mantra in your head as many times as you need, shut down any creeping, doubtful suggestions. Say your mantra again. I can. Then you will.
