"Can You Really Create Your Own Luck by Using Affirmations?"
"Can You Really Create Your Own Luck by Using Affirmations?", by Jeff Staniforth
Have you ever come across people who seem to be lucky in just about every situation and circumstance? They find a good parking space when not even bad ones are available. They just happen to find a $50 bill on the pavement. By some uncanny coincidence, they meet the right people at just the right time. They land their dream jobs. They triumph over misfortune. They get the girl (or guy) in the end -just like in movies with happy endings.
We consider people lucky when, using no apparent effort, they just automatically run into favorable situations that we call luck. Luck isn't necessarily a result of karma or coincidence. I believe that these lucky people actually "unconsciously generate" their so-called luck. They think and behave in ways that create good fortune in their lives. A large part of this is through a positive attitude or mindset, and how better to instill a positive attitude or mindset than through affirmations?
Anthony Robbins relates the story of a man who, after using a wealth affirmation for just a few days, won several million dollars in a state lottery. Some people would call that a coincidence. Some would call it providence. But whatever you call it, it's certainly worthy of further investigation.
Serendipity is defined as the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. That, too, is something we call luck. But what if you could find valuable or agreeable things that you actually are seeking -and what if you could do it at will?
There are affirmation techniques that empower you to achieve your desires and dreams in ways that appear to be pure luck. You can actually attract good luck in ever area of your life - and make it look easy while doing it.
Richard Wiseman, the head of a psychology research department at the University of Hertfordshire in England, and author of the book, "The Luck Factor," did in-depth studies with his colleagues at the university's Perrott-Warrick Research Unit focusing on what makes some people lucky and others not. After conducting hundreds of experiments and thousands of interviews, he discovered that lucky people think and behave in ways that create good fortune in their lives. They are 1) particularly open to possibility; and 2) they expect good fortune to come their way.
These 2 cornerstones are the basis of the following power affirmations that maximize your mind's potential for bringing good luck into your life:
- I am always in the right place at the right time.
- I expect the best and I get it NOW!
- I always get everything that is for my highest good.
- Everything good is coming to me easily and effortlessly.
- I am divinely guided in all I do.
- I expect life to give me what is best for me.
- I deserve the best and it comes to me NOW!
- This is a rich universe and there is plenty for all of us.
- I now eagerly await my greatest good.
- I expect good fortune every moment of my life.
- I am open to receive the abundant good that God has for me.
- God is the source of all my good, I look only to Him for my supply.
- I envision only that which is for my highest good.
- My highest good is manifesting in my life right now.
- God's wealth is circulating in my life. His wealth flows to me in avalanches of abundance. All my needs, desires and goals are met instantaneously because I am one with God, and God is everything.
Note that many of the above affirmations call upon your "highest good." That's because when you summon your highest good, amazing things can happen.
The last in the above list is the word-for-word affirmation Anthony Robbins personally used. He went from being in a state of poverty, living in a tiny one-bedroom apartment (where he used to wash dishes in the bath tub), being clinically obese and having no girlfriend - to becoming a millionaire, achieving his ideal weight and becoming physically fit, living in a real-life castle (with turrets) by the ocean with his dream woman -- all within a year's time.
