Luck lurks

“Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny? ” My answer a bit of both.

Waiting for your destiny and nothing happens.

Thank you

emotional fitness thoughts

Brute fact: luck is part of where life takes you.  Good luck or bad luck, both matter. The “Just Do It” gurus would have you think otherwise.

Not healthy. Why? Two reasons: We keep trying when we should move on; we blame ourselves if not successful.

Jerome Kagan, Harvard researcher into how people become who they become, believes at least eight factors matter.  Those factors: Temperament, sibling order, who you want to be like (identifications), parental behavior, school and social success, community size,  historical events of adolescence, and chance. Think of chance or luck as what we do not control. Then review Kagan’s list and you will realize chance plays a part in each item.

EMotional Fitness Tip

You can’t control luck. That does not mean you cannot control your destiny.  Here  is EFTI’s tip of the day:  Build your life and ideas about success on what matters.  What matters? Doing what you can, sharing and caring, and learning lessons when things do not go your way.


When you are not getting where you want to go, remind yourself that luck cannot  be controlled, but comes and goes; good luck is a gift to cherish; bad luck something to wait out.

Thank you all for all you do to care and share with others. Doing a little matters a lot. Katherine
