Born Lucky


It is said that some are born lucky.

They are born into a rich and influential family. They are well off and of good social position.

They have parents who are professionals or business owners. They are highly educated and very smart.

They are attached to a warm and friendly family. They feel safe and totally protected. They have a great childhood with a very happy and fulfilling life.

*******

It is said that everyone is born lucky.

We all have different talents.

Everyone of us has a chance to improve on our talents or create new skills.

And it is never too late for us to learn something new.

We are born as needy babies.

Then we grow and develop and choose to do something worthwhile with our lives.

*******

It is said that no one is born lucky.

Some actually have to work hard for their next meal.

They have to fight and live their life.

But they work hard to change their luck.

And they want to reverse their bad luck into good luck.

And they go through trial and error to make this happen.

And they learn that when they are at the right place at the right time, things can happen.

And so they set their mind on achieving great goals.

To them, luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

And, it solely depends on them how they create opportunities for themselves!

They create their own good luck through their mental attitudes and behavior.

Sometimes they change their name and religion.

Most of the time they strive hard to build a good reputation.

*******

But they are those who believe in the grace and mercy of God alone.

They don't count on luck.

They count on God's blessings.

And They count them often, and they give thanks to God.

They become more blessed but not luckier.

And they are happy and contented.

*******

Whatever it is, we must not penalized anyone who are born lucky.

After all, it is not their faults that they are born to live easy.

And we mustn't be proud simply because we are born lucky.

Our life may not be that easy after all.

Sometimes it is through hardships that we learn how blessed or lucky we truly are.

Remember, it is we who make our own luck.

And it is God who decide on our life and destiny...

I like this post, everyone has their own ideas on who's lucky, but if we all stop and take a look at what we have we would probably realize that we are luckier than we thought.

There's a line in a country western song that used to be popular, you have 2 lives, the one you're given and the one you choose to live. I don't think I've got the quote 100%, but that's the gist of it.

Look forward to your visit.
