Have you ever been rushing around like a headless chicken, trying like crazy to get ready but chasing your tail? Do you end up forgetting things and getting nowhere? Or have you moved into the headspace of ‘I’m waiting for when…’ For when the sky turns green, or you’ve lost weight, or whatever it is.
As you have likely figured out by now, these approaches lack results.
I learnt this lesson the hard way, having spent a long time and heartache searching for the elusive Lady Luck.
I had to go bankrupt, lose a partner, work silly 18-hour days – often 7 days a week – for years to figure out what I was doing was, in fact, blocking my introduction to Lady Luck.
Then I changed something and shortly after, she appeared.
What did I change?
Well, it seems a few million others figured it out before me – I was a little slow on the uptake, but I got there in the end.
Now my favourite thing to do is introduce you to Lady Luck.
Are you ready to meet her?
In the comments below, answer these questions:
- Identify your desire.
What do you desire? When would you like to bring it to reality? Pick a date.
- Define your team.
Who do you need around you to make it happen?
Friends, family, business associates – be specific.
- First, work backwards, then take action forward.
Look at your date for your desire. With a mentor, coach, or trusted friend, work backwards – look at what steps you can take to bring your dream to fruition. Is the date you chose realistic? Do you have enough support around you to help you?
Sparkling* Habit Hint:
This equation allows for life and creativity. Take the time you think a task will take, then double it, and then add a third. For example, I have a task I know will take one hour. One hour doubled is two hours, then add 20 minutes. So in total, I give myself 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete the task.
The final luck charm is to hold yourself accountable. I invite you to do that here now in the comments below or with your coach or an accountability buddy.
I’m rooting for you all the way!
