Recycle the Four-Leaf Clover

Would you like to change your luck for the better? If you do, throw away your rabbit’s foot and four leaf clover or whatever else you keep around to give you “good luck.” Today, let’s delve into the concept of “luck.”

Why is it that some people are successful at almost everything they do, while others seem to continually fail? Is it luck, or is something else going on?

What we normally attribute to a force called “luck” is simply the part of our mind that does not see the whole picture. No one creates any condition – health, finances, career, relationships – unless she or he has attracted it by patterns of thinking. As a poet once said, “We think in secret and it comes to pass; our environment is our looking glass.” It follows, then, that if we want to change our luck, we must change our patterns of thinking.

Just as the waves of the ocean create distinct physical formations of sand and rock on beaches, the waves of our thoughts create physical manifestations in our experience. Our minds are far more powerful than we can even begin to imagine, and each day, we are discovering just how powerful. When you see yourself as the creator of your own experience, your “luck” if you want to call it that, will change. You can toss the rabbit’s foot and recycle the four-leaf clover.

To make a long story short, you are lucky if you think you are. You are unlucky, if you think you are. The good news is that we have the power to decide which way to think. Perhaps you will find this idea interesting enough to explore in greater depth on your own?
