Your next lucky break..!
There’s nothing really wrong with such functions if your mind believes that after the function your luck will change, but if you still are pessimistic then your luck won’t change. Don’t depend on the religious function to change your luck! Others try to change their luck, through lucky charms to aid in their success. According to Jeanne Ralston (“What’s Luck Go To Do With It?” Ladies Home Journal, Jan.,1999), athletes, as a group, are often superstitious.
One athlete wore the same shower shoes for twenty years because he thought they brought him luck, and basketball great Michael Jordan felt more confident with his University of North Carolina basketball shorts under his Chicago Bulls uniform!
Some of us go for four leaf clovers, a superstition from the Druids of medieval Europe who believed that the plant imparted to those who found them special powers to see invisible witches and evil spirits. Others may carry a rabbit’s foot. It was because of the great bunny-making capabilities of rabbits that ancient Celts believed they should be associated with luck and prosperity. Still other people speak of ‘touching wood,’ a custom that seems to have grown from a belief that the noise may prevent evil spirits from hearing you mention your good luck.
I understand that basketball player George Underwood once said this about luck: “I have just two superstitions. One, don’t call someone a bad name if they have a loaded pistol. Two, don’t call your girl friend Tina if her name is Vivian!”
I believe that all of us have bad luck and good luck. But the one who persists through the bad luck - who keeps right on going - is the one who is there when the good luck comes. This person is the one who is ready to receive that opportunity when it is presented.
In other words, luck favours the prepared and those who persist and work hard. “The more I practice,” said golf pro Arnold Palmer, “the luckier I seem to get.”
To change your luck, change your attitude from pessimism to optimism. Believe something good is around the corner. Then work hard and be ready. When that next opportunity comes, you’ll be the one to seize it and make something happen. It can be your next lucky break..!
