Inspirational Quote About Luck


Ahh, it’s already Monday again! How was your weekend? Mine was nicely laid back and relaxing, which I hope will lead to a nice productive week.

Since it’s March with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I think a lot of us tend to think about luck more and where our rainbow with the pot of gold is. Do you believe in luck? I used to always say that if I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck at all, but I try to not think that way anymore. Yes, it’s true many bad things happen to all of us with several of them being things we have no control over – I don’t know many people that want to get a severe illness like cancer or want to have a loved one die way too young, after all. However, I have come to join the bandwagon that a lot of our luck is what we make of it.

I was “unlucky” because I didn’t have an awesome metabolism that let me eat junk freely when I was younger and between that and stress eating, I gained a lot of weight that I used as an excuse to miss out on a lot of opportunities. I was “unlucky” because I went through a series of life events at a young age that took a toll on my self-confidence and then some making me not believe in my true potential for a number of years. The truth is, though, that a lot of this was my own doing, even if it was tough as heck to try to change around. However, I really think that once you dig your heels in and strive for positive change in yourself, you’ll notice a lot of other positive change in your overall life as well. Yes, there will still be bad that comes your way, but if you hang in there and let it, there will be a lot of good as well.

That’s why I love this week’s inspirational quote about luck so much. Yes, there are still days when I feel so stressed I’ll eat half a pack of Oreos before I realize it which can lead to self-loathing where I don’t want to get out of bed all day. However, instead of ¬†giving into all that, I push through and continue about my day as best as I can. Wouldn’t you know it, a lot of the best opportunities I have ¬†gotten to be a part of have opened up on those very days, which I likely would have missed out on if I hadn’t pushed through.

Do you think we create our own luck?

    Hi Michelle,

    You know, I’m not sure how I feel about “luck”. I use the term but I never give it much thought. Maybe. I agree with many of the other commenters that a positive attitude can make a significant difference. The world is more willing to help someone who has a great outlook on life than they are Mr. Negativity…

    Thank you for the great inspiration this week,

    That is an interesting quote. I don’t really believe in luck, but I can follow the sentiment. I believe in the power of positive energy, and in removing myself from negativity as much as possible, and I believe in hard work – your post is great.

      Thanks, Elizabeth. I think you make a great point that sometime what people consider luck is actually just surrounding yourself with positivity (or not) and knowing you did (or didn’t) everything you could regardless.

    I have mixed thoughts on this. On one hand, yes, a person does a lot to create their own luck. On the other hand, there are just some things that happen that are beyond your control that happen to you regardless of how hard you work or what you do!

    I don’t know if I’d say I think that we create our own luck. I believe that things happen for a reason and everything is part of God’s master plan for me. I do think that we are 100% in control of how we handle or react to our “luck” whether it be good or bad luck. A positive attitude is the key to success! IF you have a positive outlook on everything in life, I think it makes you feel more lucky. If that makes any sense. :)

    I definitely believe in the law of attraction… whatever you put out into the universe is going to come right back at you. And some people see that as luck.

      I also believe in that, Danielle. When I was surrounded by negative people who considered themselves unlucky, it was easy to feel the same way. When I finally ditched that life and incorporated more positive people, thoughts, etc. it was amazing how quickly things turned around.

      I totally agree, Amanda! It’s amazing how many more positive things I’ve had happen because of all the hard work and dedication I’ve put into things the past few years. Of course, it’s also easier to call someone lucky if we choose to remain dormant and apathetic, isn’t it?
