The Mystery Of GOOD LUCK!

Issue 38 – December 2009/January 2010

Laurie’s Notes

Dear Clients,

relaxationThe term “good luck” is used as an automatic statement much like “bless you” when you sneeze.

When you are faced with a challenge like surgery, sporting competition, test,  speech, or a new venture, “good luck” is a statement  that means “be successful”. It is an expression of hope or positive feelings.

The questions I will address in my upcoming low cost ($10) workshop are, “Can we really create luck?” and “Is luck purely random?”

Often we hear someone say “Oh she’s just lucky.” Is that an excuse for our failures or a rationalization for someone else’s success or good fortune?

Take care, Laurie


The Mystery of GOOD LUCK!

“Luck is a belief in good or
bad fortune in life caused by
accident or chance which
happens beyond a person’s

Luck may be random, a chance event, and completely out of our control, but the belief in good luck produces positive thinking and alters our responses for the better.

For example, let’s say Jane was on her way to an interview for a job. She read the address wrong and walked into the wrong office. A man offered to help her, and while talking, they hit it off and he offered her a job that had just come open.

Jane experienced good luck being in the right place at the right time.  Jane believes she is lucky!  She feels more optimistic, looks for opportunities to move ahead, and believes she deserves to receive. She is more upbeat and is generally more satisfied with her life.

The one random experience of good luck changed her outlook on life and changed her belief about her own personal power. It changed the quality of her life!

  • Luck refers to that which happens to a person beyond that person’s control.
  • Luck is a form of superstition which is interpreted differently by different individuals.
  • Luck is synchronicity or a meaningful coincidence.
  • Luck is a false idea that produces positive thinking.
  • Luck is the brilliant randomness of everyday life.
  • Luck is probably taken personally.
