How Lucky Are YOU?

Ever pondered your luck quotient? Feeling like you could use a bit more luck in your life? Turns out, luck isn't merely a roll of the dice – it's a mix of mindset, perseverance, and that often underestimated quality: gratitude. As a coach, I'm here to share why I believe luck is intricately tied to personal and professional growth. It's all about priming yourself for the opportunities waiting just around the corner.

“Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity". - Seneca

Leaders who seem to attract luck have mastered the art of controlling their thoughts and emotions, leading with authentic leadership to cultivate desirable outcomes. Mastery does not imply being perfect, but understanding how to navigate human design. Building this muscle takes time, energy, and support. The greatest leaders do not go at it alone. They have cultivated an inner circle of trusted advisors that includes: a best friend, a mentor, a coach, a peer group, and a primary partner. This sets them apart from those who feel they're always on the unlucky side of things.


“Luck favors the prepared mind” - Louis Pasteur

Consistency is another crucial factor in transforming luck from a sporadic occurrence to a consistent outcome. Leaders who show up consistently, take purposeful action, and learn from setbacks are the ones who create their luck. It's their dedication and perseverance that distinguish them.

Gratitude, often overlooked in discussions about luck, also plays a significant role in shaping our mindset and attracts luck. Leaders who cultivate an attitude of gratitude (and might I add lightheartedness and humor) for their experiences, opportunities, and even challenges are better positioned to attract positive outcomes. Gratitude shifts our focus from scarcity to abundance, creating a fertile ground for luck to thrive.

While pure luck can strike, perhaps it’s more than just a roll of the dice. 

I'd love to hear from you! What else would you like to hear more from me about?
