Wow! That was a good answer (I replied before reading it thinking we were posting simultaneousely lol).
I wrote a 15k word article surrounding this topic and moving it to wizzley I realized it was that big lol! I got to thinking why not make this an entire website with a condensed version for wizzley... at any rate, I loved your bullets, hope you don't mind me commenting on them:
- I don't believe in "luck" as a thing...as in people are lucky/unlucky.
Me either, although I'm thinking you mean in the unicorn dust version- I think when you are truly lucky, not something you get passively, but rather work at building your skill sets and entire awareness to put opportunity at every corner of your environment (prepared educationally and experienced), and your lucky by virtue of the fact that you see more and take action on what you see- then saying "I'm lucky" has real meaning in the real world. Your lucky means your prepared, astutely aware of your environment, and you are not afriad to take action.
- I think the concept of luck can be dangerous, when people truly believe they are unlucky, like a self-fulfilling prophecy/lost cause.
Definitely. In the other form of luck the imagination version, if people just take the word loosely to mean they get things without working for them, then they will be more likely to think some supernatural force is controlling things thus they are impervious to failing- their luck will form when they actually crash and bounce back up. One reason I'm writing the article/book is to open awareness that luck in it's true form is the actual recipe for success and it's not handed to you.
- I believe a lot in positive/negative energy out there in the universe...that we attract good or bad into our lives. I guess I might consider that luck is something we bring on ourselves, good or back "luck," given our state of mind
I agree, the energy is both a bit happenstance (action reaction) and planning, seeding, not seeding (bad luck or no luck?), helping others (networking? building a network that can sustain you in many ways?)... the energy exists in (beyond the spiritual meaning) a network connected by memories and perceptions across as many minds as are in your network- it's a sort of emotional internet that's integrity needs fresh content and constant nurturing- luck is nurtured and grown not so much instant (most of the time). I think state of mind is the entire enchilada (well it stimulates the real world resources that bring the good things) we associate with luck).
- I also think luck can be a word we substitute for the phrase "get what I want." If I'm unlucky, I never get what I want. A lucky person always gets what they want. And, of course, when we wish someone luck...we are wishing them success/getting what they want.
When I wish someone luck I wish them awareness, to see the opportunities... ultimately ending up in the same place- success we want them to have success!
Great post yourself missy!
chef I couldn't see any other way of showing what I was replying to quickly so I posted her bullets- if you must remove them feel free :)
