Howdy, read champs? I hope your day is going well.

Mine was good and though less productive, it was a lovely day nonetheless. I did what I can and expected good things out of them.

Someone in Hive said the secret to being 'lucky' is "just showing up every day" and I agree with him. Of course, this goes without saying that it is not just showing up for the sake of getting noticed. It is doing the "real work" necessary to accomplish something of greater value, and doing them with our utmost best.

If life is a stroke of mere luck, then what else is there to see or do?

To me, life is work, it requires effort. We cannot just summon things to come our way without lifting a finger. Or can we?

So yeah, I guess you know better that things don't work that way.

"Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can." - Danny Kaye

The above quote has made my mind wander about everywhere else. At my age, I would say that I have yet to reach the point where I can say "I am done" with all the things I want to do with my life. Although I have started very early on and experienced things that my peers are still dreaming of to this day, I also have aspirations unfulfilled.

Sometimes I would sit back and let my mind play the drawings I have had so far, whilst most of them are well and good, there are some colors still missing and those are what we are working for these days.

But what about after we get them?

We would set another, and yet some more. Why can't we be contented already? If we would be, then it means we stop growing. Contentment to me means being happy with what we got but working on doing more and doing better.

Life is a cycle. We make goals and when we achieve them, we make another then another and it continues until we are no more.

Don't you agree?

Writing this reminded me of some people's remarks about me and the farm boy. One even asked to our face what succinctly translates to this:

"Why would you keep working instead of just enjoying life? You have no kids, who will inherit all that you have been working for?"

I couldn't answer her straightforwardly so I just smiled and said no more. I kind of understood her point though, she probably meant good. She may have thought that we are working so hard and are forgetting to have fun but she was quite wrong. Because while we work our arses off, we also play hard and reward ourselves with the good that we desire although not so extravagantly. We find joy and happiness with the little things in life and to me, that is what really matters.

So back to the question, how to be lucky?

To me, it's keeping on with what you do, constantly learning and improving what you know, and having unwavering faith that you deserve what you are working toward and you will eventually get it.

And let me end this with what I have read from @jongolson in Hive, and I quote:

"You get 'lucky' by continuing."

So yes, just keep going with what you have started!

Thank you and I wish you all the best!

Better said impossible, friend, we will be lucky if we continue. Setting goals doesn't mean not enjoying life or not having fun. But I think life without goals/dreams would get boring.

Life is blessing and healthy life is big blessing. When almighty sent you ob earth with an aim. So we should work on it. Yes there is a lot of action even we don't know why are we doing that but we do. If you want maximum output than your quote is perfect. Keep working on it and put your maximum.

Secondly, we can't buy or rent luck. We can't earn it also. It is come from almighty. Yes one thing can make you more lucky is that your heart should be clean and kind. Work for human welfare without any greed, believe me you will not believe on your luck. All the best.

A lazy person can never be lucky, such a person can only be lucky for bad things. We are lucky for good things because we continue to strive hard to get success. Is so sad to hear that your kingdom is left with kids needed, I pray the good lord will provide you with them in Jesus name.

I totally agree with you about being lucky, it's all about consistently working on improving ourselves and also being at the right place at the right time 😉

I feel what gives life meaning are the goals that we set, and even after achieving all our goals, we still come up with more that will give us a sense of fulfilment

There's one thing I have a problem with which is "contentment" the way we define contentment is more complex and complicated as it seems because is when you're satisfied with what you have, then this question got me thinking why we still work to have more when we're already satisfied? Is that really contentment? I would appreciate if anyone can give me a satisfying reply to this.

$ 0.02

Contentment is relative to each one of us. It doesn't have a single definition so to speak. For me, being satisfied and contented with my present life means being happy with all I have but not closing my doors to blessings that are still coming along. It means me still working to meet them halfway and not just keeping myself to where I am and waiting for things to happen for me.

Yes sis life is a cycle. If we achieve our dreams already then achieve another one. Don't stop, while you're working on it just enjoy life. No need to pressure.

How to be lucky. We should walk our life with happiness no stress, just go on and focus until you reach the path we want. Neglect all the negativities and divert it into a positive one. No worries just enjoying life then achieve our goals. Improve ourselves and remain with a precious hearts to everybody. I can say I find the word lucky.

Life is long for those who know how to live, short for those who don't. Working is a person's duty to himself and to his community, not just for a child or an inheritance. There is a whole life that can be lived to the fullest, a lot of time for both work and fun, you just have to evaluate it correctly.
