A You need more than luck to be successful.
B I can’t hope that I’ll be lucky forever.
C I know my luck will change for the better.
D I must always have my lucky charm with me.
E Luck doesn’t play a role in our lives.
I don't think luck has anything to do with whether we do well in life or not. It’s true that there have been situations when I’ve considered myself very lucky, but after rational thinking I have come to realise that anything good that’s happened to me is the result of hard work and careful planning.
I’ve been carrying this little golden coin with me ever since I was a little girl. I believe that if I lose it, something bad will happen to me. Once, I was half way through a trip, when I realised I’d left it at home. Well, I drove back three hours to get it, and then I went on my way again!
I don't remember who it was that said “the only sure thing about luck is that it will change”, but I certainly agree with them! I’ve felt really fortunate in my life quite a few times, but I don't expect good luck to follow me around for the rest of my life!
Over the years, I’ve managed to raise a wonderful family, have a very good business, and be surrounded by friends I love and trust. So, I can say that my life is blessed with good fortune, but that alone doesn’t help. If you don't do something yourself to make sure your dreams come true, good luck won’t be enough.
Lately I’ve been having one problem after the other. I’m not superstitious, but I really feel I’ve done something to make Lady Luck angry! But maybe I worry too much. If the saying “good things come to those who wait” is true, then I can only hope that with a little more patience, things will improve for me.
