Nightingale Conant My Power Podcast – Luck

Does luck have anything to do with your success?

That depends on how you think about luck. If you believe good luck or bad luck is something external that you have no control over, you have the basic principle that makes Las Vegas successful. However, if you think you have control over your destiny, here’s a different approach to luck. Luck may be your inner voice, your gut feeling, you inspiration calling you.
Over time, a lot of thought and study has gone into how luck plays out for us. Freud, said luck has more to do with a locus of control. That term, locus of control, in social psychology refers to the extent individuals believe that they can control events that affect them. The concept was has become an important aspect of personality studies. Individuals with a high internal locus of control believe that events result primarily from their own behavior and actions. Those with a low internal locus of control believe that powerful people, fate, or chance primarily determine events. Lucky people tend to be aware, or at least, receptive to what appears to be an opportunity. Unlucky people only see the opportunity that others have achieved. Even when things go wrong, the lucky people seem to have more resilience and bounce back from one loss to chase another good idea.
If that’s the case, lucky people listen to their gut feelings and hunches and get into action. Lucky people see opportunities and act on them. Unlucky people avoid new ideas. Unlucky people miss opportunities because they’re too busy expecting something to go wrong. Lucky people see what is there rather than just what they’re looking for. Luck becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
Good and bad luck may be the result of your habits. If you expect good luck, you might spend more effort resulting in more success. Thomas Jefferson wrote. “I believe in luck, and the harder I work, the more I have of it.”

The big game favors the lucky gambler, but the winning team is not built on luck, but by the hard work and leadership of talented players and coaches who know how to lead. All of us can learn the winning caching skills that determine the final score. The question is, “Do you want your life to depend on a coin toss?”

Intentions. Results.

Sure, you’ve heard the saying, “What you see is what you get.”

How about this, “What you do is what you get.”   intentions

In the book, How to Sell Your Way Through Life, Napoleon Hill writes,  “Hard work is the only thing that will turn sales training and ability into money. No amount of good health, courage, or imagination is worth a dime unless it is put to work; and the amount of pay a salesman gets is usually fixed by the amount of very hard, intelligent work that he actually puts out. Many people side-step this factor of success.”

It’s great to listen to our Podcast, build a success library, and go to seminars. The truth is all the positive thinking in the world will not hand you the success you are meant to enjoy unless to apply positive action to your positive thinking. W. Clement Stone wrote, “Intentions are one thing, results are another.”

This episode of My Power Podcast is packed with advice that will help you take action.

Dreams and desires act as the catalyst to our goal setting.

The year of the horse is your year to follow your desires.

year of the horseA discussion about desire has been around for centuries. Even back to ancient Greece when Aristotle suggested that desire alone cannot account for all movement towards a goal. He went on to say that reason, in conjunction with desire along with imagination, makes it possible for reason and desire work together to determine what is a good object of desire. He wrote that the soul is guided by two horses, a dark horse of passion and a white horse of reason. Then Socrates comes along and does not suggest the dark horse be done away with. This is important, he said that passions make possible a movement towards the objects of desire. Passion moves us to achieve the result of our desires. He went on to teach that desire must be placed in relation to reason so that the object of desire can be identified correctly. That way we know that we have the right desire. The reason for your passion must ring true. Once we know the essence of our desire we must ignite that desire with a burning passion.

What is it you desire so much you can taste it? Is the thing you desire balanced with reason? Does this mission mean everything to you so that you can create the passion needed to carry you across the finish line? Of course, you have a strong purpose in you. We all do. Want to discover what great mission may be waiting deep in your subconscious?
