I was asked recently if I’d share my view on the concept of creating your own luck. I have 4 short tips that I’d love your views on.
1. BUILD YOUR SAIL
Captured beautifully in a TED Salon talk, Tina Seelig uses a wind analogy to describe luck. http://ow.ly/sscR50B3hNu
Sometimes it’s a light breeze. Sometimes it’s a windstorm. But you never really know when, or from which direction, it will come. Her advice is to build your sail. Bit by bit, you’ll be more equipped to catch luck when it breezes by.
2. GOOD OLD FASHIONED HARD WORK
Espoused by golfer Arnold Palmer who simply demonstrates, over a breathtakingly successful career, that honing your skills and regular practice drives high-performance results, that many may see as luck!
3. OPENING THE LUCK APERTURE
Last week a young mentee with a good degree got an amazing opportunity to interview with a world class company. She reached out to her mentor, networks were used, research and prep superbly done and she got the job. Don’t forget to ask for help!
4. 100 % OF THE SHOTS YOU DON’T TAKE WON’T GO IN
Being bold and having aspirations for a moon landing, can create star studded landings! Go on, take a shot!
