Eliminate Bad Luck From Your Life

Ever know anyone who has lots of bad luck?

Maybe you know such a person all too well. Here's a question to consider…

What if there was no such thing as “bad luck”? What if the way you viewed events in your life actually altered the meaning of those events?

I won't try and convince you.

But I urge you to try the following approach the next time some so-called “bad luck” shows up in your life. Consider the so-called “problem”, and ask the following questions about it:

  1. What is good about this?
  2. What can I learn from this?
  3. How can I use this?

The only unacceptable answer is “Nothing!” You can't answer any of the questions with that response.

Watch and see if you begin to notice that each bit of “bad luck” carries the seed of something good and even great for your life.

It is about attitude. And it is about more than attitude, too.

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience” James 1:2-3

    I know man who has neither bad nor good luck, in his life happens absolutely nothing.

  • Great post Ray!

    I think the “bad luck attitude” is similar to the “it’s never my fault” attitude.

    The moment a person DECIDES to look at things in a positive light and takes responsibility for what happens in their life, their life will magically take a turn for the better.

    • Thanks Stu – yes, I agree those attitudes are closely related. It comes down to taking personal responsibility for your own life.
