18 Quotes That Make You Feel Lucky

Even those who say that they are not often guilty of committing certain superstitious habits: avoiding walking under a ladder, keeping off the table fresh clothes, not allowing a black cat to cross their path. These are the ancient wives stories with which so many of us have grown up–and we’re doing them without thinking about them, whether we believe they’re going to influence our luck or not.

Whether behind luck there’s some kind of metaphysical explanation, or whether it’s a purely psychological phenomenon, it’s a universal reality–everyone wants to feel fortunate.

With trust, the sense of luck goes hand in hand. And luckily, we can enhance our trust: it’s just a matter of concentrating on what we want and working hard. Whether or not that enhances our luck is the million dollar issue.

But we must remember that feeling unlucky can be a way of thinking; a natural reaction to being under-prepared for the assignments before us. And we’re able to modify that.

Be courageous and take opportunities, and you will often find circumstances that support your objectives. Fortune, as they say, favors the bold. Try to embrace a mindset of development, where difficulties are always an chance for improvement and success.
