Can Luck Be Made?

Increase Your Luck

One can increase one’s luck through the process of reaching out to others. An example of this is the Blog Coalition that consists of a group of more than 50 blogs, all of which share their resources with each other. There is indeed strength in numbers when it comes to promoting yourself or your business.

Overcoming Fear

Being mindful is another way of increasing your luck. If you internally search your life and relationships it could become clearer to you, which aspects of your life have a positive influence, as well which folks have a negative impact? Being self-aware can cause you to be empowered to make better choices leading to consciously creating luck. When you are afforded true opportunities, even if you have fear, be sure to take them. This decision can potentially lead to even more positive results.

Toss Out Non-Solutions

Another way you can make your own luck is by recognizing that there are things you can change and others that you cannot. Take an inner snapshot and try to be objective about which of these you are experiencing at this moment. One of the ways that people avoid luck is by getting on a path toward something that cannot be changed. In other words, they unconsciously push luck away from themselves and focus instead on non-solutions.

It Starts with Awareness

Although this is difficult for many people, the idea is to remain agile. Not so shut down in your approach that you do not have the flexibility to usher in new and positive solutions. How do you become more agile if you tend to be regimented and tense? The first step is to be aware you are doing this. Only through awareness of issues can you be freed up enough to welcome transformation.

Allow Yourself to Be Lucky

If you allow yourself to feel luckier this could not only make you happier but may even lead to a luckier you. Because remember, a happier outlook allows you to see opportunities when you are presented with them. It also makes it more likely that you will act on those opportunities.

Figurative or Literal

Take note of your affirmations. As many know, either literally or figuratively putting yourself in front of a mirror so that you can stare back at yourself, is a great place to start with the luck building process. You then can say affirmations to yourself such as “I am lucky, I am happy, I am prosperous,” and so forth. You likely already know this but sometimes we as humans forget what we know and therefore do not utilize it. Something else you probably know is that just as you can affirm with the positive, you can also enable/reinforce the negative.

Fixating on the Negative

Do you fixate on past negative actions that you may have taken? Do you have the present belief that you are not a good person and are in fact a bad one? If this describes you it is going to be tougher for you than others, to create your own luck. But it can be done! Again, maintain focus on the positive and look for ways to make sense of your life as you do so.

Eliminate the Clutter

And sometimes it is something as simple as getting more organized that can bring you luck. There is something about not having clutter in your life, whether it be in a physical way or a mental one, that lends itself to going forward toward good things.

Giving Back

Another tactic is to give back and increase your positive karma. Do something nice for others. Help them achieve their goals. Or even just commit to and become a kinder person. The more positivity you give out, the more likely that it comes back to you in the form of luck.

Closing

Regardless of which way you implement the creation of luck in your life, just being conscious of pursuing this can in and of itself make a big difference. Pardon the pun, but GOOD LUCK!

Yianni Stamas Deconstructs December 18 Also Known as International Migrants Day

The Difficulties Due to COVID-19

Blog Coalition, consisting of nearly 60 blogs (as of this date), is committed to the cause of helping those who are migrating to our country. Building awarness is very important which is something this brief article, as well as other blogs participating in the coalition. In its most simple definition, December 18, International Migrants Day that offers a new pathway for many migrants seeking a better life in the United States of America. In a world where some countries practice exploitation and trafficking, the USA is a place where serenity is practiced. But, this process has become increasing difficult due to COVID-19.

Protection of Rights

This has lead to even hire evictions, losses and discrimination. International Migrants Day gives a healthy alternative for migrants seeking a better life. The day, December 18, was chosen due to it being the anniversary of the 1990 adoption by the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.

Opportunity for All

UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon put it this way:

“On this International Migrants Day, I call on the international community to act on the global compact on safe, regular and orderly migration as an important contribution to building a world of peace, prosperity, dignity and opportunity for all.”

The Game

Long Term Growth

As of this writing, the third in line in terms of net worth is Warren Buffett.  He is known for holding on to stocks over the long term and believes that you need to hold on to a stock sometimes as long as a decade of more before seeing any real growth.

Your Unique Perspective

As experts will tell you, diversification is a good approach, so that not all your money is in one place but rather spread out over many different investments. Also, reinvention is a good one. You may see your holdings in one way, but with a few tweaks you can reinvent your portfolio. This can occur by seeing your investments in a whole new light. This is case in point with being an innovator. Do not follow the pack except when it is prudent to do so. Otherwise, factor in enough wiggle room so your unique perspective and convictions can come through.

Push the Boundaries

But you must always be disciplined, hold on tight and look at your investments as what they are, a way to make more money. But just because that is the end goal doesn’t mean you can not push the boundaries.

Oprah

Just as every person is different, billionaires are different too. Take for example Oprah. She could have done an average talk show but instead aspects of her unique and passionate personality came through. She showed how making a difference can be its own reward.

Careful of Haters

A very important component of success involves not listening to haters. Haters can come in many forms. They can be your friends, your family and others. Just because they do not see your vision does not mean that it is wrong.

One option for success can be to take on a partner. It can make it a less lonely road.

More Time Between Updates

We’ve been asked by readers why is there more time between updates? As you may recall if you are a regular viewer of this site that we used to update daily but now we are on a monthly schedule. Why? Because we’ve decided to take much needed break from the daily grind and have handed the reigns over to Home Business Achievers who are a good match for what we have been doing, which is standing up for those with Home Businesses. We feel that Home Business Achievers are going to run with the ball and make a touchdown. They will be doing primarily online marketing coverage on topics such as email marketing like this:

Why get people to sign up for your newsletter? Some folks do this because if the thing you are selling is hard to get a result for immediately, by having them on your email list means you can supply both with very useful information, but also a “P.S.” each time contain what you are selling. If you continually provide them with the newsletter material they need, they become more likely to buy from you.

Once you have your video as well as your digital product or service ready, you can move onto the next step which is to put this multifaceted undertaking live. If by the way, you are not making available a digital product, these same techniques can be used by you to get clients or customers for your business. So whatever kind of business you are in, online or offline, you must set your selling machine that you have created into action.

How do you get future customers to your sales machine? There are two possibilities. The free way to do it is through SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so your future leads find you when they need what you offer. The problem with this approach, unless you already know how to do it, is that it takes a while to learn how to do it.

Things are changing.

Everybody Loves a CAUSE

“Things are changing” is quite an open ended statement that in these trying times can mean many things. Though, in this edition, we are not exploring current affairs. We are looking instead at something very specific. It is the question: what is up with DIYdigi? It wasn’t known by many in the industry that they were working on an eBook on “Cause Marketing.” This form of marketing is thought of fondly by many agencies.

Home Business Achievers?

But then suddenly, DIYdigi was no longer the entity working on it. It had mysteriously been passed to an organization which is not yet even a collective because it is merely a group of a few folks that call themselves home business achievers.

Two Blogs with No Mentions

The website Corona Virus After (they are pretty plugged in with DIYdigi) don’t even mention the change. Nor does Create Profitable Marketing that is the brain child of DIYdigi.

The lesson here is that you’ll never know what happens next. Things are changing.

Relationships

Every day I try to see the relationship of things.

It may appear outwardly that one of my reasons for having this blog is to let you know what the latest links are. This is true. But there is a lot of other stuff pushing me forward as well. For example, I like the fun game of figuring out what the common unification elements are of the latest blog posts. Today is seems there is an aspect of being personal. Of speaking in a way that not all of us do. For example, DIYdigi looks today at what motivates us as human beings.

Bronx News NYC on the other hand explores a story about what scares us.

And finally there is Celebify. In today’s Celebify blog entry, the question is examined as to why some of us wish to be famous?

Hope you enjoy the current lineup.

Why is a Question Mark Being Hoisted for the Marquee of Education?

Look, we understand teachers have challenges and bandwidth issues. We know the schools don’t have the budget etc. etc. But at some point educators and administrators of those educators need to wake up and smell the coffee. The “get a good job” yadda yadda left the building a long time ago. Someone needs to open their eyes because isn’t education supposed to have at least a component of usefulness?

Alert. Teachers at every level and especially in high schools need to teach the subject matter of how to start a home or small business now. We need to get your attention if we don’t already have it and are going to do so by linking to this article about a fellow who has really large feet.

If you did check out the post that the link, links to, worry not. He is not going to eat you. At least not right now. He just had a snack.

It is important for all educators to read this. Look, if you haven’t noticed, the world has changed. More people are staying indoors, often in their houses or apartments. Those without a remote job, need to make something happen. Unemployment is not going to go on forever. You need to create a Home Business as discussed in this piece in the blog, The Big Apple Awards.

So why is the question mark being hoisted for the marquee of education? It’s because it doesn’t make any sense to not teach useful stuff. Stuff that the student can use for starting a home business or other entrepreneurial venture. If you want to see what happens to students when they are not properly educated, click here.

Sales is What You Do First

Design Your Future Audience

Before you even start writing your eBook you need to think about who your masterpiece will be purchased by. If none of your artistic motivations have an audience, it is back to the drawing board. You need to have buyers and if you design what you are doing toward your future customers, all the better.

Be Super Specific

There’s really no point in not writing for an audience if a monetary return is desired by you. You want it to be nonfiction and to sell a solution or solve a pain point. Plus, you want this group you are targeting to be super specific.

Step by Step

Got your future buyer in mind? Great. Now let the writing begin. More ideas on “selling” can be found at today’s DIYdigi. Another great place to look at is Art Gush’s latest. Or if you like things step by step we recommend visiting Artist Steps.
