Excerpt from SHINE
A Powerful 4-Step Plan For Becoming
A Star In Anything You Do

Regis Philbin and Larry

Are You Lucky?

Luck looms over every aspect of our lives. One second of good luck can lead to all that you aspire. One moment of bad luck can undo years of planning and hard work. Lady luck can make you or break you. She can be the difference between smart or stupid, success or failure, and even life or death. Some people are lucky. Some are not. In case you’re interested, I’m lucky. I’m not claiming I have been, or am, immune to misfortune or failure. I’m just noting that I’m lucky. And, I can help you become lucky too. Luck is something you can learn.

What Exactly Is Luck?

Luck is working hard, being prepared for opportunities, and being in the right place at the right time. It also requires the ability to recognize chance events when they strike. Luck you can control. Chance events you cannot. . . .

Larry and Dennis Miller

What Are Chance Events?

Chance events are those happenings over which we have absolutely no control. They don't consistently happen to the same person. They may be formative events in people's lives, but they're not frequent. Luck you can create. Luck you create by working hard, being prepared, being in the right place at the right time, and recognizing chance events when they strike.

When people say that they consistently experience good fortune, and that they are lucky all the time, I think that, by definition, it has to be because of something they are doing. In other words, they make their own Luck. . . .

Larry and Cheryl Ladd

You Can Learn To Be Lucky!

Stars of every stripe make their own Luck. Over the years, I’ve come to know successful people in many fields including entertainment, law and finance. Some may claim they lead charmed lives but whether consciously or unconsciously; these Stars have put themselves in position to make the best of any good fortune that comes their way. They are very creative in the way they find opportunities and jump on them.

I’ve noticed that most Stars from all walks of life make most of their own luck by being open to opportunity, creative about responding to it, and energetic in pursuing it.

Learn to be LUCKY! You might even get LUCKY and win money towards making your dreams a reality.
