Luck means having the circumstances of life in our favor. One lucky person usually has a life that flows where she/he wants, everything seems easy, if she/he proposes something, she/he usually gets it and there seem to be no obstacles when it happens.
Sometimes we think that there are people who are less or more fortunate than us. But in truth, luck is something that touches one and all. The fortune of putting life in your favour is something that you, yourself attract.
There is a phrase that says: "Luck is work dressed as success." If we analyse the phrase perhaps many do not like the word "work", because it is assumed that luck should arrive alone, spontaneously, without work or effort! It's like playing the lottery numbers and just having the right one. Thinking about "work" may remove the perceived magic from luck.
Yet, maybe luck does not have as much to do with work, but with something in us. We agree that all human beings have the same potentials and capabilities, but not everyone has the tools to achieve things. The word "luck" is associated with the word "destiny". Finding lot in life is the same as finding "the destination". And the destination is not nothing but something that we must get.
When, for example, we are lucky and meet the right partner, then the desired destination, let’s say, has been achieved. But this is not the only target. We meet because we compass the right circumstances, i.e. we walked around the place on the map of life where the treasure was. So fortunately, the meeting was triggered by our walk, by the choices we make at the time and the attitude we have towards life. The "ideal" couple was already there, but it is themselves who provoke the encounter.
So the fate or destiny is in the map of all life. The point is to find the treasures you seek and in order to do this, one of the most powerful secrets there is is to keep the compass of fate or luck fixed on your desires, following them until you find what you want.
How is it possible to keep the compass of luck fixed on your desires? Simply by following what you love. If you follow the things that make you happy and make you feel great, you will find many treasures at your destination and you will open doors that others do not see or know. When you are happy in your life, the magic of luck is active. When you do not do what you want or are you saying things you do not feel, if you are cold and calculated with your decisions or you stay in unpleasant situations for the sheer convenience, then the compass of luck goes off course.
It seems easy to say "follow what you love", but it should be noted that many times this is not as simple as it sounds, as there are many things that seem to prevent us from following what we want. One of the biggest obstacles is when you don’t really know what you want! If this is the case, start by going slowly and eliminating things in your life you do not like or want. If, in your life, you are seeing everyday things you do not like and you continue to do something in order to please someone else, if you feel small, insignificant, or if you criticise yourself and feel discontented with what you do, your "luck" magic will be switched off! Start by finding and putting your attention towards things that make you feel good and that you enjoy. The mere intention of enjoying your life or finding things that excite you starts to put the magic of destiny in motion.
Always remember that much of this secret is simply if you feel lucky. Fate depends on the relationship you have with yourself. If you feel you do not deserve something, and do not dare to go forward and seize what you want, then life will seem to have a pretty negative outlook. Otherwise if you don’t risk yourself for the things you love, life can become flat, dull and ultimately... unlucky! If you feel you deserve the best things in life, and live with the risk of chasing your dreams, soon you will reap the benefits of being a "lucky one"!
