How Much of Your Success is Determined by Your Environment?
This is the luck we are born with.
In Asian countries, it is believed that there are three types of luck. Each of them affects one-third of your life; together they rule your fortunes. These three forms of luck are:
1. Heaven Luck
2. Man Luck
3. Earth Luck
It can be described as fate (or karma) and it is set at birth. The family into which we are born, our place of birth, our innate character and our destiny are all given to us by Heaven’s will. We cannot select our parents or change our families. Our destiny marks out our potential -- and luck is the means to realizing our potential. Luck is an invisible force that can seem to make someone’s life difficult at every turn or amazingly easy. We’ve all known people who seem to have "the Midas touch" where everything they do turns into happy accidents that lead to success. This Heaven Luck -- good, bad, or so-so -- is often considered to be karma, reflecting actions we have performed in the past – either earlier in this lifetime or even before then. Because Heaven’s luck is connected to our destiny or fate, it is a part of our luck that may be beyond our control and that perhaps certain events or situations are meant to take place in our life.
This is the luck we achieve through our hard work, education, perseverance, character, virtues and good deeds.
We have tremendous influence over the quality of our Man Luck – and therefore our lives – through our thoughts, words and actions. By making good choices, continually gaining knowledge, and maintaining a positive mental attitude, we can fill our life with the "good" energy that attracts good luck and success. Our character and knowledge not only affect the near-term success of our endeavors, but also ultimately shape our destiny. In essence, we are always creating our future and fortunes with the choices we make today.
This is the luck we "absorb" through our environment.
Unseen energies are believed to exist in our environment. Some of these energies are either beneficial, enhancing our prosperity and health, or negative, creating obstacles and bringing about misfortune. Thus, where we live and work has a direct influence on the opportunities and luck that come our way. Through Feng Shui and Vaastu, we can actually use the energies in our environment to help us succeed in our endeavors. By understanding how these energies interact with us, we can consciously and intelligently adjust our surroundings to bolster our good fortune and protect us from misfortune.
Take Greater Control of Your Destiny!
You have a great deal of control over both Man Luck and Earth Luck. Earth Luck is the easiest to change by manipulating environmental influences to attract good opportunities. Improving Man Luck requires personal discipline and can be harder to change. However, Feng Shui and Vaastu can help you change the intensity and the degree of ups and downs you experience in life, making it easier to maintain a positive mental attitude and make good choices. In fact, used correctly, Feng Shui and Vaastu can – by modifying your environment -- modify periods of bad luck so that misfortunes are minimized while good luck is magnified so it has the power to bring stunning success.
Imagine having so much power over two-thirds of your luck! Plus, improving your Man Luck and Earth Luck can actually improve your Heaven Luck: even if you were born into a situation that places you at a disadvantage, using Feng Shui and Vaastu to enjoy good Man Luck and Earth Luck can change the course of your destiny -- helping you attain a life of true abundance.
