How to get lucky in life
Focus on the Positive
The best luck of all is the luck you make for yourself. – Douglas MacArthur
An unfortunate thing that happened to me: Last week, my car engine died on the road going into my apartment complex. My vehicle didn't come to a slow stop, but rather a dead halt. Let's just say the bill from the mechanic wasn't pretty, so I wasn't very happy about this.
But then it hit me: I was so lucky! My drive home that night included a 30-minute voyage on a crowded interstate. Now imagine how much worse my situation would have been if my car suddenly quit with a vehicle traveling 70 M.P.H. right behind me.
I'm happy that I was lucky enough for my car to quit in the safety of my own parking lot, because had it gone out on the interstate, it's very possible I wouldn't be here to type this. Look for the good in all things.
