The Good Luck Recipe!

Written by Kenia Morales

Good luck was not part of my life for many years until; I discovered a formula that has proven to be effective for me and many others.

Are you ready?

Okay, then here it is:

1.Set your mind on your desire goal. 2.Come up with a plan to reach your goal. 3.Follow your plan and don’t stop working on it until, you accomplish your objective.

I know! This recipe was not quite what you were hoping for. You were probably expecting me to tell you to re-arrange your room, buy a birthday stone, a good luck charm etc. Instead I have given you a short goal setting tutorial.

Why did I do this? I often hear people say: You are so lucky! However, what they do not realize is that 99% ofrepparttar time when they say that; it is in reference to something that was acquired by hard work or at least some type of effort. A great example of this is that one day I maderepparttar 140748 decision to go job hunting. As I stepped outside I saw one of my friends. I stopped for small talk and that’s when I told her my about plan forrepparttar 140749 day. She got excited and told me she knew someone that needed help in his business. Thanks to her I got hired right away.

Doesrepparttar 140666 Fear of Rejection Control Your Life? By Margaret Paul, Ph.D.

Jay sought my help because he wanted to get married and have children, yetrepparttar 140667 relationship of his dreams seemed to elude him. When I first met Jay, he was an attractive, creative, brilliant and successful businessman in his middle 30’s. And he had a great sense of humor. It wasn’t that women weren’t attracted to him. He had no trouble having first dates with interesting, intelligent, and attractive women. But it never went anywhere. Jay was baffled.

When I first started to counsel Jay, he was very quiet. It felt like pulling teeth to get him to share anything with me, especially his feelings. He stayed in his head, brilliant in his ability to articulate, but flat and unemotional. He words were carefully planned out and delivered. He seemed to always be tense. It was very hard to connect with him.

“Jay, something seems to be inrepparttar 140668 way of your spontaneity. Are you aware of how carefully you pick your words?”


“There must be a good reason you do this. Do you know what that is?”

“I don’t want to sayrepparttar 140669 wrong thing. I don’t want to make a fool of myself.”

“And what are you afraid will happen if you sayrepparttar 140670 wrong thing or make a fool of yourself?

“I will be rejected.”

“So most ofrepparttar 140671 time in conversation your intention is to avoid rejection?”

“Yes. I’m terrified of rejection. I will do anything to avoid it.”

“Jay, what are you telling yourself it means if someone rejects you?”

“It means that they don’t like me because I’m inadequate and unworthy.”

“So in your mind, everyone, especially attractive women, haverepparttar 140672 power to define your adequacy and worth?”

“Yeah, I guess so.”

“So when you are with women, your intention is to have control over how they feel about you so they won’t reject you. Yet you seem to get rejected over and over. How do you account for that?”
