How to Create Your Own Luck - A Small Business Perspective

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, it has got us thinking about the whole "feeling lucky" vibe. Gotta admit, when we first think of luck we daydream of a never-ending bank account, eating anything without tipping the scale, jet-setting around the globe, snoozing in, and relaxing soaking up the sun every day at the beach. We wish!! But reality check - especially as small business owners - thatʻs not our kind of luck. So we wanted to take a look at what "feeling lucky" really means to us. How do we create our own luck?

Small Business Perspective

As a small family-owned and operated business in Hawaii for over 25 years, we've had our fair share of challenges. From the daily grind to unexpected surprises, it's been a journey. In the world of small business, success is often equated with financial gains. While sustainability and growth are important, success, to us, encompasses much more. It's about building a community, fostering connections, and creating a positive impact. It's the smile on a customer's face, the support from our community, and the relationships formed along the way. Success is a blend of personal fulfillment and making a difference in the lives of others.

Creating Our Own Luck: Is It Possible?

The notion of creating our own luck might sound like wishful thinking, but hear us out. It's not about grabbing luck out of thin air; it's about cultivating a mindset that attracts positive energy. It's the belief that our actions, attitudes, and choices shape our journey. By approaching challenges with resilience, gratitude, and a willingness to learn, we open doors to opportunities we might not have noticed otherwise. It's about embracing the idea that luck is not just something that happens to us; it's a force we can actively engage with.

The Grass Isn't Always Greener: Finding Contentment in What We Have

From a distance, it's easy to perceive others as luckier, with seemingly easier lives, wealth, and good health. In the age of social media, where curated snapshots dominate, comparison becomes inevitable. However, it's crucial to shift the focus from what we lack to what we possess. We are most fortunate for our families, the unwavering support of friends, the love of our customers, and the embrace of our community. The real luck lies in the relationships we've built and the shared moments of joy and growth.

Struggles and Reflections: The True Nature of Luck

In moments of struggle, it's challenging to feel lucky. Bills pile up, deadlines loom, and the weight of responsibility can be overwhelming. But here's the thing – when we take a step back and reflect on our journey, we realize that luck is embedded in our experiences. The tough times aren't just hurdles; they're lessons that mold us. The people we've met, the challenges we've faced, and the continuous learning curve—all contribute to a narrative that's uniquely ours.

5 Tips to Create Your Own Luck

  • Resilience: When challenges come your way, view them as opportunities for growth. Bounce back, adapt, and keep moving forward.
  • Gratitude: Be thankful for what you have, focusing on the positive aspects of your journey. Gratitude attracts more positivity into your life.
  • Willingness to Learn: Embrace each experience as a lesson. Stay curious, open-minded, and ready to adapt. A learning mindset opens doors to unforeseen opportunities.
  • Embrace Challenges as Detours: Rather than seeing challenges as roadblocks, treat them as detours leading to unexpected opportunities. Sometimes the most rewarding paths are the ones less traveled.
  • Cultivate a Positive Mindset: Luck is closely tied to your mindset. Make every effort to focus on the good in every situation and approach challenges with optimism.

Embracing challenges, finding luck in unexpected places, and actively crafting our own narrative is the heart of our story – a story we continue to write with gratitude, resilience, and a belief that the best chapters are yet to come.
