Luck has nothing to do with it

Throw your dreams into space like a kite and you do not know what it will bring back - a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country. ~ Anais Nin

The best part of life is that we do not have to have the same life day after day, month after month, year after year. If we are determined enough, we can improve our lives at any time. ~ from Positive Quotes for Every Day by Patricia Lorenz

I just watched a very powerful short video by one of those life coaches (yes, I do occasionally find what they have to say interesting and beneficial). His basic message was to stop playing the same message in your head day after day, the victim mentality. I'm very guilty of this at times. I tend to believe that other successful people simply have had better luck than I. I realize they work hard, but I've also thought that they are just more "worthy," and have been in the right place at the right time. This coach says STOP IT! Luck has nothing to do with it, and when you say this, you're playing the victim. Today I'm going to go forth and not give in to this habit; I'm not going to let these excuses take hold in my thoughts. There is power in your mindset. Are your dreams talking to you?
