Photo author's own.'The women whom I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out. They got that way because shit went wrong and they handled it. They handled it in a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it. Those women are my superheroes.'- Elizabeth Gilbert
Stay positive and visualise success - the best athletes see themselves winning long before the game begins... you must visualise success before you can make it happen.
Act on chance opportunities - go out and create them and take action and expect the best. Perseverance will get you through failures. Which everyone has, by the way.
Listen to your intuition and respect your hunches. How do you think and feel about your various options? Listen to what your body is telling you. By listening to your intuition you can make lucky decisions.
Love yourself. Loving yourself can create miracles. Self love really is the key to unlocking anything you want in life.
Focus on the positive. Create self-fulfilling prophecies with positive expectations and adopt a resilient attitude that attracts good luck. Believe there are tons of opportunities out there and smile and engage with everyone you meet and network like mad... which leads to more opportunities!
Have a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good. Lucky people tend to see the positive side of their bad luck. Look for the silver lining. I look back and sometimes think that if I'd got what I wanted then it would have been completely wrong for me! The Universe really does have your back.
Live in the Now and seize the day (see my blog The Point Of Power Is In The Present Moment) - developing an ability to live in the present moment will help you notice opportunities that would otherwise pass you by. Start now, today so you are prepared when opportunities come a knocking.
Keep curious - welcome new ideas, routines, thoughts and observations.
Clutter blocks abundance (please read my Simplify blog). Have regular clear outs of any clutter you may have in your life - get rid of that stagnant energy and create space for new abundant energy to flow!
Have gratitude for everything you have in your life right now and keep adding to that gratitude journal and read it regularly!
Be kind and generous - what you give out comes back to you like a magnet! Remember, she who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten.
