I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it. Thomas Jefferson
There are different ways that we think of luck. Some consider it a force which exists that proscribes that things will happen in our lives for reasons we may not understand; sometimes good and sometimes not. Others see luck as an expression of faith. I like Jefferson’s definition as it has been my experience that waiting for luck to arrive has not worked and asking the God of my understanding for whatever I am seeking and then awaiting God’s reply in faith has not worked either.
As a Sober Coach and Rabbi, I have learned the time aged slogan that “faith without actions is dead.” I help people daily begin to see that action+faith=LUCK. It rarely fails to produce good fortune to the point where if we are able to, we can choose to see that our luck was having the courage to take action and make the effort and know that our faith (in whatever we believe) will produce the outcome.
My experience and what seems to be the prevailing belief is that the harder I work toward achieving my dreams and goals; the more honest I am; the kinder I am toward others; the more giving I am unconditionally; the more sincere and loving I am expecting nothing in return, my luck soars in ways I could never have imagined. The more I dedicate myself to values of honesty, integrity, patience, tolerance, hope, faith, love, laughter, kindness and acceptance, my quotient of luck continues to increase dramatically.
My prayer for you today is that you find your luck in service to and love of others. You will be amazed how lucky you become in the gifts you receive.
