The other day a girlfriend of mine wished me luck as I was preparing for a recertification test. I did the same to a co-worker as she was heading out to face rush-hour traffic for the day. “Good luck,” I said, as she exited the building.
That’s when I started thinking, what’s luck got to do with it? Is luck something you are born with? Or can it be created? Is it possible to add luck to your life and become even luckier?
Well, my friends, it all boils down to what you believe in. If you genuinely believe that certain objects or daily rituals make you lucky, then by god you will be lucky. Never underestimate the power of the mind, in particular, the positive-thinking mind.
This month, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and the luck of the Irish, are suggestions and/or products to do just that.
Good luck everyone!
Seeing yourself as a winner or accomplishing certain goals will help your mind work out the necessary steps to help get you there.
Increase Your Karma
I would love to think that this one is common sense but unfortunately we all know that it’s not. Just be a good person, do the right thing, and every now and then go the extra mile for someone or something. Life will undoubtedly give you the same in return.
Feng Shui & Lucky Charms

One last thought I’d like to leave with you. There is nothing wrong with implementing any of these things in your life, if it makes you feel better, by all means, feng shui away. However, the cynic in me has learned a time or two, If it seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t.
You’re welcome;) Happy St. Patricks Day!
