I'm Not So Lucky...

The Caroline Doll, CEO of POSH PR®, hasn't been the luckiest girl, but she has been a hard working girl! Learn more about what really goes in to "being lucky!"

It’s funny how quick we can be to credit “luck,” sometimes! I know I always tend to say, “How lucky is that?!” or “You’re so lucky!” Until my husband suggested maybe I shouldn’t.

I had never really given it much thought, but Costa explained to me that it’s basically not giving credit to where credits due! It’s taking the responsibility out of my hands, and casting it off to “luck!” As if I had no role to play in how my path unfolds. 

After talking with Costa, I actually saw two things that shed some more light on the idea of luck. One was an image on Pinterest that read, “Luck? Try late nights, a lot of coffee, and hard work!” Another one read, “Luck is when preparedness meets opportunity.” Funny how these two quotes showed up! They’re SO true!

How lucky someone is truly derives from how that person approaches life, I think. I don’t think “having the cards stacked in your favor” really attests to anything. Somebody can have a royal flush and have NO idea how to play them right! Why? Because they haven’t taken the time to learn the object of them game; they haven’t taken the time to learn the meaning and power that actually lays in that one card. They haven’t prepared themselves! On the other hand, a person can be dealt the WORST hand, and still manage to play their cards right! How? By learning the tips and tricks of the trade! By doing that, they have the power to sway the outcome of the game. It's not what you have, it's how you react to and use what's been given to you! There's a blessing in everything, I think.

Give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she'll conquer the world! - Marilyn Monroe

I really do believe a girl can conquer the world if she wears her shoes right! I DO think that what you put into life, the investments you make in your relationships, how you spend your time, those things determine what you get out of life!

The few Irish people I’ve met have been the most friendly and jovial people I’ve ever come across! But it got me thinking…Maybe it’s called “the luck of the Irish” because  (from my experience!) they are intentional in treating people well. They put out what they expect to receive! 

This New Year, I hope you choose to prepare yourself, dolls! I’d love to help equip you with all the right tools along the way! E-mail us at heydoll@poshpr.com!
