Make Your Own Luck

Make Your Own Luck

“A good friend is like a four-leaf clover; hard to find and lucky to have.” Irish Proverb

March 17th. Today is St. Patrick’s Day.

An Irish meme is that of luck, the leprechaun, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Today is also what would have been my friend’s 70th birthday, but she died six weeks ago.

Christina may have come from sturdy German stock, but she had the luck of the Irish; resources flowed to her.

One of the reasons for that was the size of her heart. It shone from the inside out. She was incredibly generous with her time and talent. People used to refer to her as “lucky” all the time.

I’m convinced she only seemed lucky to those who don’t understand the cause and effect of her magic wand of gratitude; her generosity invited reciprocity.

Luck doesn’t just happen; you must participate in its creation.

Others may be thinking about parades and green beer today. I’m thinking about the power of gratitude.

And how we each make our own luck, or not, through gratitude and generosity.

Happy birthday, my friend. You were are great lady while you walked this earth; you remain one in my heart.

Thanks for showing me what living a lucky life looks like.

“A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness.” ~James E. Faust

Helping businesses build their people

If your people have the skills to communicate more effectively, they can connect more authentically and thus collaborate more productively. Not only on the job, but also in life.

Communication, Connection, and Collaboration—the three “C’s”—are the cornerstones of all successful businesses.

Experiential learning through interactive workshops and coaching combines these three essential components with real-world application. By heightening self-awareness, enhancing emotional intelligence (EQ), and reinforcing accountability people become better communicators and self-managers.

I’ve been driving new kinds of conversations my entire career. Clear, confident, congruent conversations that generate change. The kind of conversations that create real collaboration. The kind that build your business—and your character.
