Have you ever said to yourself: “Why not me? Why don’t I find luck when others do?” There is a way to change that and become the person that finds lucky opportunities. It turns out that luck isn’t really about chance, it’s about choice. 30% of our life is completely random. The place you’re born, who your parents are, your family’s financial situation, and other similar traits are all things we don’t have control over. But, we do have control over the other 70% of our life. We have a choice, and we can use that ability to choose to find luck and find success by making unique, different choices that bring us to lucky situations. Bob Miglani, the author of Make Your Own Luck, explains how in this interview with John Golden.
This expert sales interview explores:
- How to let go of paralyzing fear
- Why you should have multiple plan A’s
- The benefit of a beginners mindset
Let Go of Fear:
Choice can be paralyzing for people. Part of why it’s so difficult to make choices is because it’s hard to predict what is going to work and what is not going to work. We second guess ourselves.
Multiple Plan A’s:
After letting go of fear, it’s time to put some plans in action. Most people have a series of plans that they do in order, waiting for their first idea to fail before moving to the next.
The Beginner’s Mindset
In a beginner’s mind, opportunities are endless. You welcome criticism and feedback so that you can continue to grow and learn and change. But as we graduate into more advanced levels of our careers, we lose the beginner’s mindset.
