When You Have a Blueprint You Don’t Need Luck

The circumstances we are born into do not define us. We have the power to script our own lives. But this actually requires a script. You can’t wing it in life, hoping to get lucky.

You need to develop a blueprint of your future life. That blueprint gives you clarity and direction. You feel like you are in control of your destiny when you know where you are going.

  • What is the perfect work you would like to do?
  • How much money do you want to make?
  • What amazing house do you want to live in and where is this house?
  • What type of exotic car do you want to drive?
  • Where would you like to go on vacation?
  • How much do you want to weigh?
  • What time do you want to wake up and go to bed?
  • What books do you think you need to read?
  • What type of successful people would you like to associate with?
  • What does your neighborhood look like?
  • What amazing dreams are you going to pursue?
  • What goals do you have?
  • How successful do you desire to be?
  • What mad skills do you have in the future?
  • What unique, special knowledge will you have?
  • How many people have you helped because of your wealth and success?

Develop your blueprint today. When you iron out the details of your life, you remove all of the wrinkles.

  1. What about developing a blueprint for a 65 years young person?
    Your last question: How many people have you helped because of your wealth and success?….. I need to reword to read: How many people have you helped because you’ve messed up royally going from wealth to poverty (and I can guarantee that I won’t live another 65 years to regain what I lost.)

  2. Successful people least of all love when they are called lucky. They deny luck in every way, sticking forward only their virtues. Therefore, we can conclude that success makes a person more aggressive. The most insignificant mention of a happy event makes them crazy. Recognizing good luck for them is tantamount to losing control of the situation. Plus, the feeling of duty to someone interferes with them, and they do not like it, because they believe that they should only thank themselves. Also, when you deny luck, the feeling of anxiety and possible depression increases with any failure, which negatively affects the psychological health of these people.

    • Sorry, but I totally disagree. 87% of the rich in my study acknowledged that luck played a major factor in their success. But, it’s a unique type of luck they are the beneficiaries of – Opportunity Luck. They create the opportunity for good luck to occur. Also, part of my research requires that I read many biographies of successful, wealthy people. In almost every biography I’ve read, the rich individual acknowledges that they were lucky. I am almost done reading a biography of Phil Collins (Genesis). Collins repeatedly calls himself very lucky in the book. So too did John D. Rockefeller (book = Titan), Richard Branson (book = Like a Virgin) and many other books I’ve read. I actually do not believe you can accumulate vast wealth without luck. So, luck is fundamental to success. At least for the Dreamer/Entrepreneur, Virtuoso and Big Company Climber paths to wealth.

      • Ronald Robert Capra says:

        Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con lo que expresaste, lo he experimentado en mi vida profesional (Arquitecto). Esos sueños, plasmados en estratégias de crecimiento(todo teórico), hace un tiempo que quiero llevarlo a cabo en un club muy pequeño pero de gran potencial en mi ciudad. El problema es sortear las dificultades que se presentan, como realidad del país y principalmente interactuar mis sueños de emprendedor con los otros miembros del Consejo del Club. Por lo poco que he leído siempre hablaste de costumbre/hábitos de tipo individual. Como sería trasladarlo a perseguir en forma exitosa una visión en lo colectivo.
        Te agradezco en este intercambio porque muchas de tus afirmaciones me sirven para ir enriqueciendo y fortaleciendo en mis convicciones de que voy lograr ese Club (sociedad colectiva) que la ciudad se merece. Por último si tienes alguna lectura que creas que me sirva, te lo agradezco
