I was ‘splat on’ again the other day. I mean, a bird dropped a little present on my head. Ever had that happen to you? I have had it happen to me on quite a few occasions. At times at rather inconvenient moments.
“A bird literally splattered a path all over my crisp new suit and beautifully coiffed hair.”
Once I was in an interview for a new job. It was stunning weather so the interview took place outside in the garden of my new potential employers’ offices. I was in the middle of explaining my motivation for the role, when a bird literally splattered a path all over my crisp new suit and beautifully coiffed hair as it swooped over the top of our table. It was the funniest thing ever.
Now I am one of those people who believes that when a bird ‘poops’ on you it is a form of good luck, ie good things are coming your way. One idea is that it is a sign of major wealth coming from heaven, based on the belief that when you suffer an inconvenience (albeit a pretty gross one), you’ll have good fortune in return.
You may not believe in such silly superstitions, but why not? After all, it is the meanings we give things that help us deal with events in our life in either a positive or negative way.
“It is the meanings we give things that help us deal with events in our life.”
In fact, I have often been called ‘lucky’ and if you look at my life overall, I think you could deduce that, at face value, I am lucky. In fact, my family and friends have often said to me that everything I touch turns to gold. Is that true? No, definitely not, it’s just their perception. I believe, however, that you can help lady luck by playing hard at work to try and be the best you can be and by choosing to trust things will turn out ok. I believe that that attitude is what has helped me turn ‘poop’ into gold at times.
Oh yes, the job interview, did I get it, I hear you ask? Yes and no. I was offered it but I turned it down because I decided to pursue a career as a trainer and coach instead. As it turned out it was the best decision I could ever have made, it was the path to my future.
Perhaps I was lucky after all!
Love. Live. Lead.
