Coaching Corner: Are you lucky?
By Marilou Butcher Roth, Master Coach
Currently, I am running a book group on the book “Conscious Luck,” written by one of my mentors, Gay Hendricks, along with Carol Kline. We are only two chapters in, and I can already tell this will bring forth some lively discussions.
How do you feel about luck? What we are learning is that it is all about mindset. Finding luck doesn’t have to be elusive. In looking at our long-held beliefs, we can often find the origin and decide to greet luck differently. It takes willingness and commitment, and in my estimation, consistency.
One of the affirmations given in the book is the following: “I freely and joyfully commit to creating luck and abundant good fortune in my life, now and forever.” How do those words feel when you say them? Here’s the thing about any affirmation -- it's not the words themselves that generate change; it is the feeling that comes from the words. If these words feel good to you, consistently saying or writing that statement will be beneficial to your new thoughts on luck.
Today, take a minute to check in with your thoughts on luck and where you would like to be with them. When you change your inside thoughts, you see changes in your life.
