Here's a flash
- luck depends on your attitude.
It has nothing, ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING, to do with the day and time
you were born, the way you set your house out according to the
ancient Chinese person Feng Bullshi, a lucky talisman from an
unpronounceable town in Saudi Arabia or a chunk of crystallised
formica from Coober Pedy.
Luck is what you
make it. Practise being lucky but bear in mind that practise
is not the whole answer. No amount of practise is ever going
to make me a champion jockey. Even the midweek high weight handicaps
come with limits!
Are you good at
assessing a race on exposed form? Would you be better if you
gave yourself more real time to perfect the art? Then what are
you doing? Luck favours people who've done the preparation.
If you expect good
things to happen - they will. Similarly, if you expect bad things
to happen - they will. Tell yourself what you can do (with
COMPLETE honesty as only fools lie to themselves) and then
DO IT. A lot of people in business who "struck it lucky"
were only listening to their intuition - most of which was based
on facts they subconsciously absorbed from observation.
The record company
exec who signed Lady GaGa to his label wasn't doing so because
he/ she "only backed last start winners". Lady Gaga
never won American Idol of The X Factor but the guy or girl
who signed her "felt something". It was probably based
on years of observation and experience that formed his/her intuition
and said "yeah, let's go with it". Don't ignore your
Intuition is mostly
your subconscious brain's analysis of any given situation based
on your past experiences.
The brain is a marvellous thing
and reacts and responds to the stimulus you feed it. If you
keep thinking and telling people about your "bad luck",
what do you expect is going to happen? Yes - exactly. Words
reinforce beliefs. Just read that again - words reinforce beliefs.
And this of course makes it almost impossible to change beliefs
if you keep telling yourself negative stuff about your punting,
relationships and life in general.
Now without skating off in to the
woopsie-polly-doodle world of pseudo spiritualism, you can control
what your mind thinks about you and good luck. Mind control
is just another way of using words to change the way you think
about your fortunes.
Say the following words to yourself
- no one else needs to know what you're doing - just try it.
If you say them to yourself often enough AND BELIEVE IN THEM
- you will change your whole attitude from perhaps one of negativity
to positivity about what you are, what your trying to achieve,
how you're trying to get there and who you are.
"I succeed in what I do"
/ "I trust life and its processes" / "I have
abilities that help me reach my full potential" / "Nothing
Now these words mightn't suit you
or the way you think or talk. It's important that the positive
words are said in language that you use every day or your brain
won't absorb them. Write your own. But mean them when you say
Will saying these words get you
the quaddy this afternoon and change your life? Maybe. Maybe
Will they make you a better person and more fun to be around.
Will you feel happier and attract that elusive "good luck".
Surprisingly, most likely.
Oh, and words are free to try as
