Create Your Own Luck

By Dr. Jesse Ritter

We've all said it countless times in our lives: "GOOD LUCK!"

Sports games, job interviews, weddings and having babies. We're all guilty.

Let's, for a moment, reflect on what the definition of luck is:

success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions.

Success or failure by chance? Is that really what we should be telling each other before big important events in our life?

Instead, what if we told someone who was going on an important interview the next day:

Have courage. Relax. Get a good night's sleep the night before. Tap into your most confident version of yourself. If you have an alter ego that you use in certain situations, become that person. You're gonna crush it!

Would you rather hear that OR "good luck"?

Telling someone "good luck" assumes they can't control the outcome. Nothing could be further from the truth in almost everything we do in our life.

I accept that many things that happen in our lives are by chance. There are many things, both good and bad, that we can't control. Some obvious examples are winning the lottery or getting struck by lightning on a sunny day.

However, I'm a huge believer that WE CREATE THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR OWN OUTCOMES IN LIFE. Supporting that belief is faith that God wants the absolute best for each and every one of us.

We were born omnipotent to become powerful individuals who make an impact on ourselves and others.

Don't leave your wins and losses in your life up to luck. Create your own luck through embodiment of courage in the face of fear, execution, discipline, compassion, fortitude and work ethic.

Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and go CREATE YOUR OWN LUCK!
