So I was sat in Pizza Express with my PA, and we started talking about people that are successful and she asked me ‘Beckie do you think its just all luck though?’ ummmmmm whattttttt. F*ck no.
What do you think we do, just sprinkle something magical over ourselves and then good things start to happen? NO! Lol I’ll calm down now… I believe that everything happens for a reason and ‘luck’ is absolutely not the reason. Let’s be realistic for a second…
To be a successful to me is completely down to the person being persistent, committed, productive, forward thinking, positive, motivated, putting in the work to achieve their goals, grafting when nobody’s watching, being able to cope with the tough times (I could go on and on!), But seriously, there’s not one part in this which states the word “luck”. Eww…
And this is why…
“Luck” makes you feel like you are depending on something that is out of your control in order to get the outcome you want. Lets be real here, what happens in life isn’t about what you’re given based on how “lucky” you are, it’s about what you CREATE, what you OVERCOME and what you get out of the goals you aim to achieve.
If we honestly all believed that “luck” was the golden ticket to take us to success, we’d never be satisfied, we’d never feel a sense of achievement and we’d all find ourselves sitting back and waiting for something to come to us forever and ever. And worst of all, we’d be happily ASSUMING something is going to happen based on bad or good ‘LUCK’? Does that make sense to you because it definitely doesn’t make sense to me?
You will then be too afraid to take any risks. How can we grow by just sitting back and waiting…? Truthfully, we’re not. Get up, go and get it!
And as you can imagine, when someone says to me ‘Beckie you’re so lucky’ I will actually scream lol. I’m not lucky when it comes to anything, business especially. I didn’t wish for the world to make great things happen. I followed my inspirations footstops, their attributes, their habits, their traits and worked at it. I worked at it for years and years until finally my break is only just beginning to pay me back for the struggle it took to get here.
My business and my health, isn’t luck. It’s constant graft and working my butt off every second of the day and always wanting to be the best version of myself that I can be. It’s not magic – you can do it too! You just need to take action and apply yourself.
I’m not going to settle and rely on ‘luck’ to get me anywhere. Whether that’s in business, with my body or just in general. I’m a firm believer in getting what you deserve and I stand my ground to keep working hard and do everything I possibly can until I have hit my goals one at a time!
Sleepless nights, 16 hour days sat in COSTA, not giving up when I’m in tears of overwhelm and stress, hard work and dedication got me to where I am and I’m nowhere near where I want to be yet! It’s nothing to do with luck. And this is nothing to do with me.
The point I’m making is that next time you think about calling someone ‘lucky’ or thinking that you are ‘unlucky’, pause for a second and REMEMBER THIS:
Whatever happens to us, whether it’s good or bad is a result of how we take opportunities that come our way and the choices that we make in life. You are in control of changing your ‘unlucky’ spell… change your mindset, flip the negatives, create your own path, pattern your thought process and you WILL get there. I believe in you. We’re all gunna make it!
