How to Think Better: unlucky

The unlucky mindset comes in many forms.

  • Im just not really lucky.
  • I can never catch a break.
  • Bad luck follows me around.
  • Im never in the right place at the right time.
  • Im unlucky in love.
  • She has all the luck.
  • I just wasnt born under a lucky star.

Our mindsets become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If you believe you’re unlucky, you are.

You cut yourself off from the openings, opportunity and optimism of a luck-is-created mindset.

Think about it: If you believe you’re unlucky, who does that mindset cause you to be? Who does it prevent you from being? Is it an empowering mindset?

In contrast: If you were to embrace that luck is created—by you, how does that change what’s possible?
