21 Ways to Absolutely Hit Blackjack and Win in Your Life

Let’s say you are about to make a pivotal decision in your life.  It’s a decision that clearly puts you on a positive path if you win or a negative path if you lose.  Kinda’ a big deal, right?

So as you think about the decision you begin to consider your odds of making a winning decision.  You want to leave Las Vegas a winner, so to speak!

As an aside, you’ve probably heard the comment:  What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.  Well, an adaptation of that comment is:  What gambling money you take to Vegas stays in Vegas!  Some would project the odds at less than 5% of leaving Las Vegas a gambling winner.

You don’t want to play those kinds of odds with the quality of the outcomes in your life!

And, you don’t have to!

You deal yourself a winning hand in the game of life by acting on 21 ways to win the “Blackjack” bet of life.  In no particular order here they are:

Don’t be surprised by the unexpected challenges that come along in your life.  Square up your shoulders; look at each challenge; and laugh at the surprise while taking action to overcome.

Whining never results in winning!  Whatever comes along in life recognize “what is—is” and move on.

Enjoy your life as it happens even when unexpected things temporarily get in the way of those things you planned.

Speak to yourself and those around you from a positive frame of reference and be inspiring as a result.

If you want people to respond to you in a favorable way, give them a sincere, caring smile of understanding or approval.

There is value in being friendly to all you meet.  You become an influencer rather than just another face in the crowd.

Persistence is the passport to winning the game of life.  Never quit!

Try not to be the “soap opera character” in other people’s lives.  Provide positive energy to other people, instead.

Have things but don’t worship them.  Love people and worship your relationship with them.

Recognize happiness is a state of mind not something measured in financial net worth.

Winning or losing at something should not change the fact of having a good time at all times during your life.

Reward other people with your congratulations regarding their successes.

Maintain hope even in the worst of times by staying focused on your vision of the best of times.

A smile is the light in the window of your soul that allows you to touch the souls of other people.

Reinforce the value of other people by paying them an appropriate complement…even if you don’t know them!

Give other people sincere positive feedback much more frequently than corrective feedback.

Surprise people in ways that make their day—and—expect nothing in return for it.

Do something to change things rather than waste valuable time to complain about things.

Other people don’t control the losing cards in your life.  You control your reaction to the hand that is dealt you and creating a winning situation.

Abundance in your life comes from helping others overcome the scarcities in their lives.

Always be true to you and the winning hands in life will keep coming and coming!
