Those who are superstitious believe that the number 13 is unlucky and that Friday the 13th is extremely unlucky. However I am of the belief that we make our own luck, superstitions be damned. The harder we work and the more that we focus on the outcomes that we want the luckier we will become. Nobody ever became successful because of luck, they did it because of the hard work they put in allowed more opportunities to present themselves.
Calling someone lucky just discounts all the work that they put in to get to where they are now. It is the same as just calling kids smart when they get good grades, it discounts the work that they have put in to get those good grades. These are both reflections of a fixed mindset as Carol Dweck talked about in her groundbreaking book “Mindset”.
Use today as an opportunity to embrace the “Growth Mindset”. Failures happen but that does not make you a failure. Just because it did not work yesterday does not mean that it will not work today. Learn from past mistakes and use that experience to help make you better and more capable going forward.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
