=========================================================

Today is Friday the 13th.  Is it another lucky day?  I’ll make it a lucky day, and here’s how:

First, some background:  I make a living helping people celebrate.  It’s an optimistic profession, providing wedding or party music to keep people in a festive mood.

I began in 1975, and the more I practice the better I get.  With all this experience, I suspect that luck has very little to do with any success these days.  Rather, I’ve learned to create opportunities and convert them to a memorable celebration.

Now, some say Friday the 13th is an auspicious time, bringing good luck or bad luck.   Hopeful or ominous.  Either way, I find it difficult to board that train.

Instead, I feel that we control more of our destiny than we commonly think.  Especially through how we respond to whatever comes our way.  Active or passive.  As I see it, luck has little to do with anything, unless we practice so much we’re lucky all the time.

I recently wrote about creating our own opportunities.  My attitude is that life presents us an endless array of circumstances day by day.  Usually it’s up to the optimists among us to transform these circumstances into opportunities.

For example, you’ll hear this kind of sentiment everywhere: A pessimist will see a hurdle as an obstacle, but an optimist will see that hurdle as an opportunity.

So today another Friday the 13th will come and go.  As usual, some of us will actively create golden opportunities today, while the rest of us will passively live through another day.  I plan to be in the first group.

How about you?  Will you make Friday the 13th another lucky day?
