It’s a safe bet that most of us, at some point, have considered that luck has a lot to do with success. Maybe it’s more about feeling unlucky when something doesn’t go the way we’d like it to go.

Have you ever considered yourself unlucky? Have you ever felt like fate has dealt you a bad hand? If so, let's experiment with another way of looking at things.

Have you ever felt cursed by fate? You know, as if something such as bad genes, poverty, illness, wrong body—it really doesn't matter what—ruined your chances to succeed?

If you have ever felt this way, there is a secret that maybe no one’s told you about. It’s something so important that when you embrace it, you can take yourself from feeling this way to where you want to be in the future.

Are you ready? None of those things are holding you back! But something is, and it's far more powerful than poverty or any of the other issues we tend to blame.

What is holding you back is your belief about what you are worth and what you can do. Henry Ford said, "If you think you can, you're right. And if you think you can't, you're right."

Certainly, it's a big plus to have loving parents, a great education, good looks and lots of money. However, you don't have to have them to be successful in life.

You do, however, have to accept responsibility for choices you make or don't make, for how you respond to what happens to you, and for developing yourself to achieve your full potential. And once you let go of your excuses and accept responsibility, you also assume control.

Lucille Ball once said, “Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it, and I'm afraid of people who do. luck to me is something else: Hard work—and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.”

You take charge of your own life, believe in yourself, and work diligently in pursuit of success, the most amazing thing happens—you also start to get "lucky!"
