Who wants to get lucky?
Nope, I’m not only talking about sex, I’m talking how to increase your chances to win…in life. Oprah once said “the definition of luck is when preparation meets opportunity.” I wholeheartedly agree. Getting lucky is not just a by chance circumstance…it’s continuously showing up and putting your best foot forward…again and again and again.
Take a minute to think about all the times you may have shied away from a chance to step through an open door because you weren’t prepared. What made you stay home, say no, or not start up a conversation with someone? Was it your confidence, your lack of preparation, bad outfit day or pure laziness?
If you’re life and luck has slowed to a crawl–use the following as a springboard–yes–you can fly.
Get Lucky Tip # 1: Say Yes
Accept invites, lunches, and seek out new places to go. A few ago my life was going nowhere. I was 30 years old, living in my loving parents garage and was 15 grand in credit card debt. I had no vision of what I wanted to do with my life. I had just left my successful, yet no money making career of being a stand-up comedian. I wanted a change and was done with pursuing the life of fame and fortune.
Saying yes to all invites became second nature. My agent, Natasha from Peak Models, sent out an email blast inviting everyone to a seminar her husband was having called Rockstar Marketing. I had nothing to market but it was free…so I attended. I had an open mind and absolutely no expectations.
On the last day my name was entered in a fish bowl with 500 others. The prize was a website and business critique from the highlight of the seminar, Tom Antion. This was the biggest giveaway of the 3 day event. To my surprise my name was called. I won!
Long story kinda short, Tom helped me birth “Style by Rayne” and gave me new purpose. I am so grateful I went to that seminar. I really didn’t want to get in my car and drive 40 minutes at 7:30 in the morning on a Saturday…but hello….I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. My point being…show up and enjoy the ride.
Get Lucky Tip # 2: Dress the Part
Show up in style. Being prepared to get lucky is crucial. If we were talking about sex you would be shaving, brushing your teeth, doing your hair, spraying a sexy scent, putting your alluring panties or boxers on, changing the sheets and cleaning up the house…making a tremendous effort. Why not prepare for your overall life like your sex life. If you’re not dressed for “it” you will miss “it”. Dress for wherever the day may take you and be prepared for that lucky encounter. Change your luck in life not just the bedroom.
Get Lucky Tip # 3: Primp Your Mind
Knowledge is sexy. Take some educated risks and go for your dreams. Get your butt of the couch and acquire some knowledge. Take that class that you wanted to take. Invest in yourself and new friendships. Make time for learning new things. Get your spirituality on. Find what workout regimen will keep you healthy and fit for life. Explore speakers(Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes, Oprah, Deepak Chopra) that have positive messages and listen to them. Implement the tips they give to living a positive and purposeful existence. Get that certification to up your credentials. Yes, I am talking to myself on this one. Image Consulting Certification, AICI, here I come. Hire others that know what you don’t to train you. For example, does your image need a revamp? You know I can help…100% style satisfaction guaranteed! The more you know the more you can help yourself and others.
Happy New Year’s! May you accomplish all that the universe has in store for you in the new year!
