Luck is a strange thing. A thing which I believe doesn’t really exist. However despite its non existence I plan on telling you how to be lucky… please bare with me it will all make sense soon.
I am sure we have all read or hear on a daily basis examples of luck or someone being described as lucky. But when you think about it, genuine occurrences of luck are about as rare as a blue moon. Most cases considered to be luck are a result of a series of events put together with the aim of achieving an outcome, e.g. a lucky goal (well I assume that they have been trying very hard to make this happen for a prolonged period).
My Mother thinks she is really lucky. She is always winning raffles! It is her belief that she is lucky that makes her buy tickets whenever she sees an opportunity… you see were this is going? Her persistence and belief in her own luck creates the luck. She takes a chance more often than most and it pays off probably as regularly as it would for anyone else with her belief and persistence.
But how and why does this matter? the truth is we create our own luck in all aspects of our life and in business too. So if you take more chances, grab more opportunities, work a little harder at something you can have more ‘luck’ too (which we have established doesn’t really exist). This could be taking a chance and asking a potential client to lunch, going to more networking events and making sure you talk to the most people, ask if you can quote for work, be brave, maybe even buy a raffle ticket*
*note: any lottery wins as a result of reading this blog are obliged to go 50/50 with me right! its only fair.
If we can all just take a few more chances we can all be lucky and please feel free to share with me if this approach provides any unexpected positive results for you.
I own and run a market leading bid writing consultancy which has secured over £2.5 Billion pounds worth of contracts for our customers. This didn’t happen by luck.
Thanks for reading
