Bad luck can be pretty difficult to cope with, particularly when it seems to be targeting you and no one else. My mother always said that bad luck comes in bouts of three. It does often seem that way, too, though perhaps I have convinced myself of this theory. There have been times on a two-string streak of bad luck where I end up hanging around waiting for the third to come along. Negative thinking. You lose your phone, then get hit with an unexpected bill, and then fall over and bump your knee. Told you! When we encounter bad luck, we immediately begin to question what we have done wrong to attract such bad luck into our lives.
Even though you are trying to be a good person and do the right things in life, bad luck is following you around as if it was some sort of punishment. Of course, this gives rise to a belief in karma and some sort of spiritual retribution; perhaps for past life wrongdoings, or wrongdoings that you have inadvertently committed in some way.
Someone has to lose their job, someone has to break their leg, someone has to get a huge phone bill that they weren't expecting, someone has to miss a flight because they were stuck in a taxi, someone has to get their visa application refused. By and large, unless you die, or someone you know dies, or is diagnosed with some horrible illness, there is usually someone far worse off than yourself. That truth, in itself, is usually enough to kick you into positive action and take control of your direction.
But rather than letting go of the bad luck and moving on with a positive mindset that things will get better , we often enter the self-blame game. We stop moving forward and begin looking backwards. We begin questioning why this event took place: what could I have done differently, what events could have occurred that would have produced a different outcome. Then we begin to question ourselves on a more personal level: am I not good enough?
Am I not deserving of good things? Am I doomed to fail? We spend a lot of time and energy in this hepace. This causes stress , anxiety and sleepless nights. We walk around all gloomy, with a very negative outlook on life, low confidence and low self esteem. Negative energy will always attract negative energy. It is no coincidence that successful people in both their personal and professional capacities are generally positive people who believe that things are going to get better and work out for the best, regardless of the decisions they have made.
So if you find yourself in this self-blame state of mind, you must immediately take steps to take yourself out of it. When you are in a run of bad luck, there is only one thing you can do, and that is to move forward. To keep thinking about what you could have done differently and what might have happened if a different set of circumstances had occurred just keeps rubbing salt in the wound. More often than not, in the grander scheme of things, you are making a mountain out of a molehill. You are re-living the events over and over in your head, and in doing so stopping yourself moving forward.
You must let go. Blaming and questioning yourself makes you static in life and bound to the past. These things are sent to try us and test our resolve. But what separates those who stop letting bad luck hold them back from those who are unable to get over these experiences, is the fact that they are able to remain present, create a plan of action and move forward — positively.
Nothing in the past can help you right now. That bad luck has happened, it's done and gone. Whether you need to find a new job or want to start dating again, or you want to re-sit an exam or re-take your driving test; whatever it is, start formulating a plan immediately. Consider exactly what it is you need to do to get from the situation you're in now to the situation you want to be in. Using a new job as an example: the first step would be to create a new . Spend the day researching how to create an awesome . Really put a lot of hard work into making it stand out from everyone else's.
Then create a list of companies that you would love to work for. This will be your hit-list of companies to contact over the next few days. The next step might be to personally deliver your to those companies on your hit-list: Put on some smart clothes, get yourself down there, knock on the door, introduce yourself and hand over your . Literally get your foot in the door. Those companies that you can't reach on foot, phone them up and enquire about vacancies, or them and mail over your . This is about picking yourself up off the floor and being proactive.
It is about going out there and taking action to change the course of your life. Make your plan, get yourself into bed nice and early, and wake up early and make a fresh start. Everything looks brighter after a good sleep and an early start. Make a commitment right now to not let bad luck dictate your life and lead you passively into more of the same. When I say before I read this article I was in a state of what I do so bad to be going through what I been going through. This article literally spoke to me from the beginning until the end. Now I know that I have been my own enemy by not accepting the situation that I am in and using it to move forward but now I know what I have to do to move forward.
And I think I made the first step in admitting that I let myself get this way. Thanks for putting these words in place to help me move on. I wish you all the best with your next step towards the next chapter of your life. Not because I want to start a debate and not because I want to prove that I am right or not but it seems like whenever I think positive something negative happens — why is that because I am losing my mind!
I told myself in positive mind that my marriage will go very well and I will be the happiest person in my life — but no totally opposite happened, then I thought at young age I will get support from my friend — in positive mind but again totally opposite happened the list is so long that I am getting nervous. I believe you and totally agree. Do you also feel like when you talk nobody listens but when everyone else yaps you are forced to listen? I see no comment after your opinion but the next person sure as got a response!.
I have bad luck all day every day. Same here, fell down, shoulder and leg pain, now today stung by a wasp. People tell me I have bad luck. Also how is a person supposed to just pick up and make a new plan. Idky but I feel like a horrible person. Wtf is happening to me. Me to everything that can and does go wrong on a permanent basis everytime I think positive I just get knocked back down with a bang. I dont know what to do am generally scared for the future.
I agree. My son is the same way he does well For while and then all hell breaks lose. He wrecks truck at gas station same week after getting it out of the shop. No person I know wants to think themself into bad luck! Sometimes in life one door closing is too open a new one. And, once one opens the door there will be new pain and pleasures, again.
After reading some comments here not to minimize how someone feels however sometimes its perspective… I was married and every pregnancy was abused in every way possible. I was abused in some way every single day, being cheated on absolutely mentally drained amd pushed to my limit. Every single thing has gone wrong after finally getting the courage to not be afraid and risk my life so my children have a real chance.
Moved into a side by side with the absolute worst nightmare neighbors and no money to move. I took almost nothing of my own bc I jist wanted my children to be comfortable.Why am i so unlucky
