Make Your Own Luck Day

Make Your Own Luck Day is "a time to direct your destiny toward success, productivity and happiness." It was started by J. Richard Falls of Irving, Texas, who placed the holiday on his birthday. It appears to have first been celebrated around 1995. Falls has said that celebrants should wake up on the morning of the day and expect that good things are going to happen.

How to Observe Make Your Own Luck Day

Start out the day by expecting that something good is going to happen. But don't just sit there and wait for it—go out and make your own luck! Instead of waiting for luck to come your way, position yourself on a path towards success, and happiness will surely follow! Once you start succeeding, people might say, "You're so lucky." But you will know what really happened—luck didn't come to you, you made it yourself!
