Not surprising, because we are all chasing good luck, and not worried much about what happens after that.
Don’t throw good luck away.
Imposter syndrome is real.
People feel they don’t deserve it when something good happens to them.
This mindset can ruin everything and will turn good luck into bad luck. If you feel you don’t deserve something, getting irritated is the worst thing you can do.
Instead, start giving back to the community. If luck doesn’t bring any immediate monetary benefits, make commitments for the future.
This will help you attract more good luck.
Don’t become a snake guarding the treasure.
Double down and a bit of diversifying and saving: If something is working, and luck is by your side, you should double down.
Keep going with what is working, because it is not going to work for long if you don’t pay attention.
Make sure to diversify and save a little too if it is related to money.
People tend to show off when luck strikes for the first time.
But good fortune will attract a lot of vultures. So staying low-key is very important.
