This is a phrase I've unfortunately heard a lot.
My parents innocently dropped this phrase into conversation whenever they spoke to someone about my second, failed marriage.
They said it directly to me too - "Ptissem, you have no luck".
I used to wish they'd say something else, something that didn't make me feel so helpless or like that last bit of hope that I was clinging onto was being washed away.
It's true, I don't have much luck in life, I'd end up agreeing in my mind.
It's such a casual comment, but it's loaded with negative assumptions that slowly start to seep into your way of thinking and your perception of life.
'Nothing I do ever works out'
'Why do others have all the luck and I don't have any?'
'Why has this happened to me when I'm a good person?
'What's the point in trying to do anything now, it's not going to work out for me'
'I'm just one of those unlucky people; I'll just have to deal with it and not expect much from life moving forward'
For such a casual comment, that's a lot of damage to your way of thinking and ultimately your emotional well-being.
How can anyone positively move forward in their lives when all of these limiting beliefs are slowly simmering under the surface?
The truth is, you're not unlucky, at all. You just had a bad experience. And that bad experience has zero effect on how you can move forward with life.
A simple shift in how you look at things can have such a dramatic effect on how you move forward.
A simple shift in perception can totally transform your way of thinking and free you of these made-up, limiting beliefs that do nothing but help you drown in sorrow.
If you'd like to experience the simple but powerful shift that will completely transform your life, allow you to drop these debilitating beliefs and instead move forward with positivity and self-assurance; then join me and Kathryn Jones on the 23rd February at the ME First Revolution.
