“Lucky” Is An Insult
I was up at 2 am to record this episode because I felt a strong tug that this needed to be addressed.
I’ve noticed a mindset from some in my audience I wanted to speak to today in the hopes that we can have an honest conversation and create a powerful shift. I’m not here to scold anyone, or attack anyone. I just want to help you overcome a challenge you may not even realize you are having.
A lot of people fall into a victim mentality because they use a word they think is harmless: luck.
When you look at someone’s accomplishments, you might consider them lucky. They were lucky they got that TV deal, they were lucky to have those friends, lucky to get the job.
What you see is the final polished result. You don’t see all of the hard work, or even years of effort that comes into their success.
The definition of luck is: Success or failure, apparently brought by chance rather than through one’s own actions.
So when you say someone is lucky, you are saying they didn’t do anything to get where they are. That’s a bit insulting, don’t you think? How would you feel if someone said you don’t really deserve whatever measure of success or happiness you currently enjoy?
Not only that, but it put you in the mindset that you have to be lucky to get anywhere. That your dreams will just fall out of the sky, and if they don’t it wasn’t meant to be.
It encourages being lazy. It encourages you to not take action.
The truth is, you need to do the exact opposite. You can’t count on simply being lucky, because no one is lucky.
If you try to count on luck to be a success, you’re just going to waste away the God-given gifts you’re supposed to be exploring and unpacking as apart of your unique journey.
This is such a passionate topic for me, so I decided to devote an entire episode to it and I hope you enjoy!
