“Make your own luck.”
In life, it’s a flip of the coin, you can either win or lose. It’s all about how the coin chooses to land. But is it all about luck, or do you make your own luck. Do you have to always take what life throws at you? I am a firm believer in making your own luck. You can tailor make your life whatever you want it to be. The choice is yours in how it ultimately turns out. We all have this vision of where we want to see ourselves. Then, that vision becomes blocked at times once certain obstacles are put in our pathway. But what about people who are dealt a bad hand. How do they make their own luck.
Well, it’s like the saying, “If someone has done it coming from where you came from, looking like you do, it is possible.” At times it’s hard to see the future because you’re stuck in the now. But in order to reach the future, you have to embrace the now to get to that point in the future. We also get stuck comparing ourselves to everyone else. Instead, you should focus on where you want to be in what it is you are pursuing. And making your luck can get stifled when looking at everyone else.
Well, how so, how does life become stifled? Because their climb is their climb and your climb is yours. You can’t judge you from them because you never know how they got to their point. You have to say, what’s for them is for them. And what’s for me is for me. Easier said than done, especially if you have close people in your life who can influence your thought process. Which leads me to my next view on making your own luck. The hardships of not wanting to upset those around you.
In life, you never want to feel like you are letting others down. Especially if the others are your close friends and family. But sometimes you must be disobedient to reach the place where you want to be in life. What I mean by that is, you know your strengths and weaknesses. You know you better than anyone, so don’t take a path because you think it will make you more accepted by your peers. Make them respect you for the decisions you make and stand firm. Yet sometimes, these are the main people you may have to cut out of your life. Like I said in previous posts, not everyone is meant to be in your life. So if they are, they’ll be there, if not so be it.
In the end, flipping the coin can land anyway any how, yet you make your luck. Stop holding your breathe waiting for things to happen. Flip the coin, because you can make it land heads or tails depending on how you set up your own life.
