Luck & Fortune

Bookmark and Share
Luck has the connotation of being random.  Fortune has the connotation of being deserving.

When someone says “good luck,” they are implying that the universe is full of chaos and that we can’t predict anything.  Somehow, hopefully, that within the billions of possible outcomes, there may be a magical chance that all variables will align to give you what you need.  That’s not creating a future, that’s putting our fate at the mercy of gravitational forces.

When someone says “fortunately,” they are implying that things are working out for the best.  There is a bigger purpose in the universe that we may not be aware of, but that purpose will be fulfilled because we are destined for it.  When someone tells us “you have good fortune,” they are instilling belief and faith within us.  That helps us to forge the future into what we determine our own destiny to be.

What’s our purpose?  Is it to be at the prey of circumstance or to be creators of our future?  When someone tells us that we’re lucky OR unlucky, let’s not accept it.  Luck has nothing to do with it.  We’re fortunate.  Whether good or bad, we were fortunate enough to have the experience because the experience is designed to move us into our called purpose.

Luck takes away merit from a well deserving acknowledgment.  If someone acknowledges us for a job well done, let’s not ever say that we were lucky.  At best, let’s say we were fortunate enough to be working with good people.  Even if we were lucky, we are subconsciously conditioning ourselves to be fortunate instead.

I know I may be talking rocket-science to some people.  But Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul says, “If you keep believing what you’ve been believing, you’ll keep achieving what you’ve been achieving.”

Let's love the world together...
