Do you ever compare you life with other people? Do you ever feel that you are not lucky, perhaps you feel that you are from the wrong country, wrong town or perhaps you have the wrong background?

25 Wonderful Quotes About Luck

Do you believe in luck? Do believe that some people are luckier than others or do you believe that people make their own luck through hard work and the right positive mindset?

I totally believe that every morning that we wake up, we should feel lucky, blessed and grateful. I also believe that if you think that you are lucky, more luck will flow your way. Call it the law of attraction, the laws of the universe or even The Secret, I just believe and that you will attract more of what you believe in.

If you feel that you are lucky, blessed and grateful, you will attract and notice more things in your life that you will feel grateful, blessed and lucky to receive. On the other hand, if you believe that you never get any breaks in life, or that you are unlucky, guess what? You will probably attract or notice more things in your life that don’t go your way.

If you want more good luck in your life, start by changing your mindset to feeling more blessed, grateful and lucky every day, I am totally positive that your life will start to change.
