"I find that the harder I work; the more luck I seem to have." Thomas Jefferson

You took a chance. You made a move. You rolled the dice and gave it a go. And much to your surprise, it worked. Like a charm. And it felt great. It felt wonderful. It felt like you were on top of the world.

Oh sure, there times when the ball doesn't bounce your way, when the cookie crumbles all over the place; when you roll one snake eyes after another. And those times stink, stink to high heaven. But when things are going your way in a big time way, it is one of the best feelings on earth.

So how do you go about maximizing the good times while keeping the not-so-good times at bay? To be honest, I don't have a clue. Every time I think I have it all figured out, life shows me I don't with an exclamation point. But I do know this; when you are working towards the achievement of an important goal or objective, giving it everything you've got, good luck seems to strike a lot more often.

"Chance favors the prepared mind." Louis Pasteur

It has been said that success is where preparation meets opportunity. Simply stated, the more prepared you are to take advantage of the opportunities life presents, the better.

Preparation means being in the right place, at the right time; doing what needs to be done when it needs doing. Preparation requires you to lay the groundwork, to put the pieces in place. Preparation is about doing all that you can to position yourself to succeed. But success takes more than preparation alone. It demands that you show the courage to take a chance and see what happens.

Sometimes things work out. And that's great.
Sometimes they don't. And that's not so hot.

Either way, you need to capitalize on your good fortune and get better. And you must seek to garner something positive from your hard luck. And get better as well.

"Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success." Henry Ford

Living a charmed life has a lot more to do with preparation than luck. Just like the old Chinese proverb says, you have to dig a well before you are thirsty. Preparing a plan, preparing to win, positioning yourself to succeed and then executing the plan will have a lot more to do with the success you achieve than all of the four leaf clovers, rabbit's feet and horseshoes on earth combined.

That doesn't mean you cannot help luck along. In fact, you should pave a pathway for luck to follow. French novelist and author Charles Victor Cherbuliez provided a blueprint for doing precisely that when he said, "What helps luck is a habit of watching for opportunities, of having a patient, but restless mind, of sacrificing one's ease or vanity, of uniting a love of detail to foresight, and of passing through hard times bravely and cheerfully."

"If you're not prepared, it's not pressure you feel; it's fear." Bruce Bochy

Want to lead a charmed life?
Want to get lucky and more importantly, stay lucky?
Want to start getting some breaks, start getting some wins under your belt?

Then maybe you should follow the advice of Frank Lloyd Wright who said, "I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and a devotion to things you want to see happen." How about your level of dedication? How about your hard work? How about your devotion to excellence? How do they measure up?

You need to get prepared. Get focused. Get a game plan - and put the plan in motion. And then get busy. Get out there and mix it up. Force the action. Make something happen. Take a risk. Take a chance. And be willing to take the good with the bad.

When things are working, build on your success. Then make it better. And keep moving forward. When things don't pan out the way you envisioned, don't panic. Keep your cool. Fix whatever went wrong and make things right. And keep moving forward. Along the way, you will get better. Your results will get better. Your life will get better. Better than you imagined. Better than you dreamed possible.

Better than ever before.

Power Pointer: You make your luck in life.
