Everyone Needs a Little Luck

My dad gave away green key chains in the shape of a shamrock with the words inscribed, "Everyone needs a little luck."  He was a clever marketer who never ran out of ideas to bring in more patrons at Mulligans Bar.  Most lucky people I know share common traits.  Here are some examples:
  1. They expect to win.
  2. They work hard.
  3. They don't give up when the chips are down.
  4. They believe there are lessons in their losses that will teach them how to win in the future.
  5. They are champions at finding creative solutions to any challenges they face.
  6. They "feel" lucky.  
  7. They attract others.
  8. They have high hopes.
  9. They dream big.
  10. They see losses as a temporary condition that will improve soon.
Dad gave away a lot of key chains in his day.  He encouraged others to take risks.  You can't be lucky at anything unless you enter the arena.  That's what life is... one giant arena.  You have a choice today -- be a spectator watching others try their luck, or get out there and join all the lucky people who are living their lives to their fullest.  You don't need a lucky key chain to win at the game of life.  Just maintain a positive outlook and don't ever give up.

Does luck play a role in your life?  Please share in the comments section below.
