Happy St. Patrick's Day...

...and may the luck of the Irish be with you as Spring rolls around.

After reading the newest post from Success Magazine Publisher Darren Hardy again tonight. It got me thinking about the term luck, and how we define it. I have come to believe that there is no such thing as really bad luck, only a negative attitudes. After reading Darren's terrific post about Getting Lucky, I did a little digging for the origins of the word "luck". Here's what I found.

Luck as it turns out is the shortened form of the Middle Dutch: gheluc, which means "happiness".

So there you have it, LUCK = HAPPINESS.

Now it all makes sense to me. Bad luck means unhappy. Since I really believe that happiness is a state of mind, changing your attitude to happy, means that luck will always be there since it lives inside of you. No need to look any further than our mindset to find luck in each and every day.

So as you enjoy your St. Patrick's day, may the HAPPINESS of the Irish be with you as well.
