Why you shouldn’t believe in luck
First of all, because as any psychologist will tell you, it’s a limiting belief, which will play a non-desired role in your life, taking you to make decisions in an arbitrary way, rather than stepping into your own path (although as you might know there is no path, it’s just here and now).
Secondly, because it will remove ownership to your actions, or as we usually do, we will take it just when the outcome is good or positive, removing ourselves from the equation when the hard part is happening.
Because it will also prevent you to invest tons of hours, effort and energy in self-learning and self-renovation, key and essential part of growth and living a meaningful life.
And might prevent you to be able to time hacking or light speed traveling in your life. You will witness some people doing ten times more meaningful things than you do in the same amount of time as you are having. And this is just because they are not trusting their luck. They are intentionally moving their needles to something bigger than themselves.
Finally and most important, if you decide bravely to not believe in luck, you might be able to discover that in every single decision or act you do there is an intention behind it (what you should prevent at all cost is having a total lack of intention, to avoid assuming responsibility, just in case something bad happens…as this is real growth happening)

It also describes her beliefs of why you should not trust your luck, but you should instead have the power of intention in every step you take.
The intention of doing rather than talking, or thinking.
Your intention should be linked to free yourself, keeping a positive mindset along the way, to visualize your present and future with intentional hope to finally reach to a permanent status of peace, so you will find your path or you will be able to create your own yourself.
The second part of the secret is based on a real story happened last Friday to a friend of mine. This person has been going for lunch to the same restaurant couple of days a week for the last five months.
Since the very first day, this person had one single intention, which was to be really present and add real value to that place. To
