How to be lucky.

Yes indeed I am…to have been able to make a month away to travel across fabulous South America. Thank you so much for your wonderful emails and facebook messages. I have loved being able to travel to Machu Picchu, a lifetime ambition. So many people saying how lucky I am, and I am. I know it every day. Lucklucklucky!

Do you know the secret is though: luck is not as random as it seems. You may remember my blog post early this year about achieving your dreams by narrowing them down to a top 3 personal and top 3 professional goals for the year and then consistently choosing in favour of them.  That’s all I have done…it was a million tiny decisions that led to lying on Copacabana beach and to seeing the sun rise through the haze at Machu Picchu. It was turning down nights out to save money, and making smart choices at the supermarket for a year to be lucky enough to come. It’s not one big moment of luck, it’s a thousand tiny choices in favour of what I really really want.

I am now thinking about what I want to be lucky with next: writing a coaching book is what I really, really want. I want to be lucky enough to be a published author. So I am putting it out there, it’s one of my 6 golden priorities. And I know it turns on a million tiny choices to choose to write rather than watch telly or sleep or whatever that actually will make it come to fruition.

How do you want to be lucky in the year ahead? What do you wish you could magically do/see/be? Run a marathon? Meet your soul mate? Live a balanced life? Start your own business? Write them down, top 3 personal, top 3 professional, then start consistenty choosing and let the luck happen. It’s a funny thing: the more you start choosing in favour of what you want to be lucky the luckier you get.
