I consider myself pretty lucky — and there’s not an instance that I don’t “recognize” that luck!

However, I don’t really think there’s such a thing as being born lucky. That would mean God chose some to be more blessed than others. And that would make no sense. God created us all the same. So either we’re ALL lucky OR NONE of us are.

But hmmmm, that’s a thought.

Are we all lucky but some of us know how to tap it?

I do believe there’s such a thing as maintaining a lucky mindset in order to manifest your desires.

I do believe there’s such a thing as maintaining a lucky mindset in order for more blessings to find their way to you.

I do believe mindset plays a huge role in what is often referred to as luck!

But let’s not pretend staying in a positive or lucky mindset is always easy. It’s not. Life can be challenging at times and throw our mind, beliefs and positivity off, leaving us feeling stupid for thinking there was such a thing as luck or positivity influencing our desires.

The struggle is real. So we need a few things in our arsenal for those “life can be challenging days”.

4 Things I Think Are Important to a Lucky Mindset

#1 — Clarify what you want. Don’t keep changing your mind every time a difficult wind blows. It’s very easy to give up on your pursuits when things start or consistently go against you. Positivity can quickly turn into thoughts of “should I do this instead”, “should I do that instead”. Clarifying what you want and sticking with it — lucky or not — is important.

#2 — Believe you can have it. Believing doesn’t mean sitting around wishing. It means not to lose belief in your ability and right to achieve your dream every time difficulty challenges you.

#3 — Stay Positive. Finding ways to stay positive is really helpful. You WILL BE challenged in life. So find a few things that will keep you in a positive mindset. Things such as:

Inspirational books

Inspirational music

Inspirational movies
