I keep saying GOOD LUCK and BEST OF LUCK, etc. when posting to people. I must think of a better turn of phrase...since LUCK really doesn't have much to do with it. While I consider it LUCKY to have found SparkPeople...the work we all put in everyday is not LUCK, it is WORK. It is concerted effort, dogged determination, and force of will.
We all have to make choices everyday. It is not LUCKY that I did not eat extra cake at the party last night, it was a choice. It is not LUCKY that I got up and did my walk this morning, even though I could have stayed in bed...it was a choice.
So much of my success so far has had to do with re-framing the way I approach those choices, and my life in general. That is precisely why this is working for me, and will continue to work...because I am changing my life...my lifestyle...really my approach to everything!
Perhaps it is time to drop the wishing of LUCK and think of some more encouraging and empowering things to say to people...
Good power to you...
Best of choices to you...
or maybe just
