At least once a week, I'll tell my husband or friends "Guess what?!" and they'll say "What now?".
I've won six months free luxury travel, tickets to personal development seminars, weight-loss programmes and even a scholarship to the exact life coaching course I wanted to do.
It's not just big things - I regularly win bingo with my mum, people give me things out of the blue and I even find money in unexpected places.
I'm telling this not to brag, because I want YOU to get excited about becoming a lucky person. Because I believe that anyone can do it. It comes down to your attitude and deciding that is ok to be successful. Winning can be fun (and addictive!).
You don't need charms, spells, leprechauns or lucky horse-shoes. Just decide that you're a lucky person and then expect to be proved right in every situation.
I love Sandy because she talks about completely aligning yourself to success using the Law of Attraction. Thinking about your dreams, believing and most importantly feeling it.
Sandy did several prize draws over the day and right at the start, I wrote down on my pad - I'm going to win everything. I set an intention to win a fantastic prize.
The first prize was "Millionaire Author Secrets", a home study course worth $997. Writing a book has been on my goal list for ages, so when Sandy called out my name, I was so excited (but actually, not particularly surprised - I'm super lucky, remember?).
Funnily enough, weeks before I had started to affirm I speak on stage with Sandy Forster, so when she called my name, I ran right up to her, so technically I was kind of on stage with her too!
I have written to Sandy several times, always interact with her on Facebook and have been on her coaching programme, but I was still surprised when she said "Oh Denise, you're such a winner. Tell everyone what you've won". She knew my story!
Luck for me has now become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more I talk to others about it, the more they believe me and the more I believe it myself. So I keep winning. I can't stop!
So, how have I become such a lucky person? Was I born with it?
Not particularly and I'm not from a rich family. I was raised by a single mum who has always had a very positive personality, but I never considered myself particularly lucky. In fact, at times I believed the very opposite.
I even had famous astrologer Yasmin Boland check out my chart to see if my luck was "in the stars". Nope.
Do I obsessively enter competitions?
Not at all, except occasionally when it's something fun. I enter a lot more than I used to because now I tell myself that I'm a really lucky person, so why not?
It's my beliefs that make me a lucky person:
I believe in the power of the Universe
I believe that I'll always get taken care of, no matter what
I believe that I'm the star of my own movie, not a secondary character
I believe that my wants and desires are perfectly legitimate and I don't feel guilty about them anymore.
Even though I had a massive money block, I decided to align myself to my desires even though I had no idea about how they would come to me. The Universe found a way around the giant rock in my river called MONEY BLOCKS to deliver exactly what I wanted.
This year I got over most of my money blocks and so I'm attracting actual cash too!
You may have rocks or even boulders stopping your flow of abundance (or love, health or whatever you most want to attract). These boulders might represent things such as FEAR, SHAME, RESENTMENT or SELF-DOUBT.
The universe will always find a way to support you, even if it only feels like a trickle of support. It will flow around problems and resistance you throw in the way, no matter what.
So - it might be time to experience more than just a little dribble of what you want. Why not decide to become a "lucky" person, absolutely flooded with abundance? How do you destroy those barriers?
Surround yourself with positivity
Read positive books, listen to motivational CDs, pod-casts and go to inspirational seminars. Sandy told us she walks every morning at 5:30am while she listens to positive messages on her iPod.
Do body work with a kinesiologist, talk to a life coach like me about your blockages and decide that you are going to destroy any negative beliefs such as "It will work for everyone else, but not for me".
Take everything as a positive sign that you're a lucky person. A rainbow, finding a small coin in the street, a friend buying you a cup of coffee, anything! Every time it happens, say out loud "I'm such a lucky person!".
Be grateful for what you have. Good feelings attract even more good feelings!
What you think about all the time is what you'll become - that's why the Law of Attraction is such a double edged sword. So, decide to be a lucky person, blessed by the kindness of the Universe.
Say it enough times, believe it and start to act like a ridiculously lucky person and eventually you will be!
