5 Easy Ways To Use Lucky Girl Syndrome In Your Own Life

The Lucky Girl Syndrome is the latest manifestation trend that has been taking social media by storm. It is a manifestation technique that promotes positive thinking and a positive mindset in order to attract good fortune and great things in life. Today we will explore what the Lucky Girl Syndrome is, how it works, whether it is an effective strategy for achieving your goals (spoiler: It’s incredibly effective!) and go over some practical ways you can use Lucky Girl Syndrome in your own life – and how to be delusional!

What is Lucky Girl Syndrome?

The Lucky Girl Syndrome is a new name for an old spiritual practice that has been around for centuries. It is based on the law of attraction and the power of manifestation. The idea is that if you think positively and focus on the good things in your life, and (most importantly) you believe that obviously, everything you want is coming your way because the universe is FOR YOU, you will attract more positive energy and good fortune. The Lucky Girl Syndrome is all about manifesting what you desire by assuming you already have it, or assuming that you certainly will have it. If you’re a lucky girl, everything good just seems to happen to you!

How Did the Lucky Girl Trend Get Started?

The Lucky Girl Syndrome gained popularity through a set of viral TikTok videos on the subject. Since then, many TikTok users have jumped on the Lucky Girl Syndrome trend, sharing their own positive thoughts and daily affirmations.

Does Lucky Girl Syndrome Work?

There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that Lucky Girl Syndrome works. As far as concrete evidence or scientific evidence, Lucky Girl Syndrome is too new of a concept to be tested thoroughly – but there is plenty of scientific data around the law of attraction and the law of assumption, in which Lucky Girl Syndrome is rooted.

Some of those studies suggest that positive thinking and visualization can have a positive impact on our mental and physical health. For example, a study published in the Journal of Health Psychology found that visualization techniques can help reduce stress and improve mood. Another study published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management found that guided imagery techniques can help alleviate symptoms of cancer-related pain.

While we don’t have concrete proof Lucky Girl Syndrome works, many people believe in the power of positive thinking and the law of attraction. Lucky Girl Syndrome promotes a positive attitude and a positive outlook, which can lead to more positive outcomes in life.

How Can I Use Lucky Girl Syndrome In My Own Life?

If you are interested in using the Lucky Girl Syndrome in your own life, here’s the good news – it’s super easy! It involves convincing yourself the universe is on your side and acting as though it were absolutely true. Changing your whole mindset may not seem easy, but here are a few steps you can take to get started:

  1. Practice Positive Self-Talk: Start by paying attention to your thoughts and self-talk. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones and use affirmations to reinforce your positive mindset. Speak kindly to yourself and believe that you are capable of achieving your goals. Try and catch yourself in the negative self-talk and turn it into positive.

    For example: “I’m never going to lose this weight, I can never be consistent enough” can become “Holy cow, I have lost so much weight lately! I can’t believe how easy it has been to shed those extra pounds – I feel so good!”
  2. Create a Vision Board: A vision board is a visual representation of your goals and aspirations. Create a collage of images, quotes, and affirmations that represent the life you want to live. Keep your vision board somewhere you can see it daily to help reinforce your positive mindset. Every time you look at, conjure feelings of gratitude for already having manifested everything on it. It’s also a good practice to surround yourself with positive messages throughout your day. I have a good resource for this in my Uplifting Blessings post.

    For example, if one of your goals is to go on a nice vacation, put a picture of the place you want to go on your vision board. Every time you see it, act as though you’ve already been to that place – in your mind, run through the process of having booked your flights, planned the vacation, eaten at the local restaurants, see yourself walking on the streets amidst the local people, notice the smells and sounds of your vacation, and say “I am so lucky I got to go on this amazing vacation! I had so much fun, met so many interesting people, and I cannot wait to do it again!”
  3. Set Specific Goals: Setting specific, achievable goals is an important part of the manifestation process. Be clear about what you want to achieve and create an action plan to make it happen. Take concrete steps towards your goals and celebrate your progress along the way.

    For example, if you want to manifest your dream relationship, you could write down exactly what your dream relationship looks like – be as detailed as you can about all the things that would make this relationship perfect for you. Then, set some goals around it like: Go to 1 new event per week to be around different people. Identify 3 things you can improve about yourself or your relationship skills to be the ideal partner for your dream relationship.
  4. Practice Gratitude: Gratitude is an important part of the Lucky Girl Syndrome. Take time each day to reflect on the good things in your life and express gratitude for them. This will help you cultivate a positive mindset and attract more positive energy into your life.

    Like I mentioned above with the vision board, gratitude is a huge component of Lucky Girl Syndrome – because if you have gratitude for something that hasn’t even happened for you yet, that is the biggest indicator to the Universe that you are ready to receive what you desire.
  5. Tell Yourself You’re Lucky: Do this all the freaking time. All throughout the day. Anytime something even remotely good happens, get in the habit of reminding yourself how lucky you are, and how the universe has your best interest at heart. Someone let you cut in in heavy traffic? “Wow, I’m so lucky!” Barista at Starbucks make your drink extra perfect today? “I’m so lucky, the best barista made my latte perfectly!” Your spouse do something nice for you? “Wow, my spouse adores me. I am so lucky! It feels so good to be adored.”

Be Delusional – No, Really!

The key to being a lucky girl is being delusional. In a healthy way! The Lucky Girl Syndrome is sometimes criticized for promoting unrealistic optimism and encouraging people to be delusional. However, a certain level of delusion is necessary in order to achieve our goals. People don’t achieve impossible success by believing they can’t do it. They reach their dreams by believing they absolutely can do it.

Being delusional means having a strong belief in something that may seem impossible or unlikely. Being pessimistic or skeptical can limit our potential and prevent us from achieving our dreams. You want to squash any pessimism and skepticism that creeps up in your mind. The trick is to believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you will be provided with all the things you desire.

Believing in yourself and your abilities, even when others doubt you, is a powerful mindset that can help you overcome challenges and stay motivated in the face of adversity. If you struggle with loving yourself and believing in your own potential, I urge you to start here with my post on Law of Attraction Affirmations for Self-Love. If you don’t already love yourself, do the work to change that.

Do whatever you need to do to fall in love with your life, to cultivate deep love for yourself, to live an enchanted existence. I always recommend to start this process by surrounding yourself with things that bring you joy. Uplifting music, art that makes you smile, clothes that make you feel pretty, books that inspire you.

Examples of How to Be Delusional And Embrace Lucky Girl Syndrome

Ok, but what does it look like in practice, this whole “be delusional” thing? Here are some examples of how to be delusional in some specific scenarios:

How to Be Delusional About Weight Loss

Being delusional about weight loss means having a strong belief in your ability to achieve your desired weight, even if it seems impossible or unlikely based on failures in your past. Here are some ways to be delusional about weight loss:

  • Visualize yourself at your desired weight and focus on how you feel and look at this goal weight. Really embody the feeling of being YOU at this PERFECT weight.
  • Believe that you can lose weight no matter how much you have struggled in the past.
  • Act as if you have already achieved your desired weight by dressing and acting like the person you want to be. How will you walk at your goal weight? How will being at your goal weight change the way you interact with other people? Think about how being at your goal weight will change your personality and mannerisms and start adopting them now.

How to Be Delusional About My Dream Job

Being delusional about your dream job means having a strong belief in your ability to achieve your career goals, even if it seems difficult or unlikely. Maybe you feel like you’re not clever enough, or educated enough, or entrepreneurial enough. Here are some ways to be delusional about your dream job:

  • Believe that you are the perfect candidate for your dream job, even if you don’t have all the qualifications.
  • Visualize yourself working in your dream job and focus on the positive aspects of the job.
  • Act as if you have already achieved your dream job by networking with people in your desired field and learning as much as you can about the industry. Spend as much time as you can in the circles of people who already work your dream job and really absorb their language, their mannerisms, and become familiar with their vision.

How to Be Delusional About Financial Abundance

Being delusional about financial abundance means having a strong belief in your ability to achieve financial success, even if you’ve been plagued by debt in the past. Here are some ways to be delusional about financial abundance:

  • Believe that you can create financial abundance no matter what your current financial situation is. Read books and listen to podcasts about people who went from poor beginnings to a wealthy future. This can help you believe that it’s possible for you too!
  • Visualize yourself living a life of financial abundance and focus on how it will feel to have financial freedom. Spend a few minutes every day pretending you’ve got all the money you could want.
  • Act as if you already have financial abundance by making wise financial decisions and taking steps towards creating passive income streams. Get financially literate – read read read! This post, where I round up the top 5 investment books to change your life is a great place to start. Find out how wealthy people spend, grow and invest their money. Learn about the Rule of 72 for doubling your money. Become an expert on wealth. This ensures you won’t blow it once you get it, and it sends a signal to the Universe that you are ready to receive the wealth.

How to Be Delusional About Finding My Perfect Partner

Being delusional about finding your perfect partner means having a strong belief that you will find your ideal romantic partner, even if you’ve had a long history of failed relationships. Here are some ways to be delusional about finding your perfect partner:

  • Believe that you will find your perfect partner no matter how long it takes or how many failed relationships you’ve had.
  • Visualize yourself in a happy, healthy relationship with your ideal partner and focus on the positive aspects of the relationship. Spend a few minutes every day pretending that you are already in this relationship – walk through your house, talk to them, sit down to have dinner with them – what will you talk about? What will you laugh about? How will you feel cuddled up next to them on the couch?
  • Act as if you have already found your perfect partner by taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally and being open to new romantic possibilities. Oftentimes, the biggest blocker to receiving our perfect partner is our own readiness to be with our perfect partner. So spend time every week working on improving yourself. This could be putting time into a breathwork routine, trauma healing with a therapist, journaling to better understand yourself and your triggers.

Is Lucky Girl Syndrome related to the book “The Secret”?

The Lucky Girl Syndrome and “The Secret” are both based on the Law of Attraction, which states that like attracts like. According to this law, our thoughts and beliefs have the power to create our reality. In other words, if we focus on positive thoughts and beliefs, we will attract positive outcomes into our lives.

The Secret” is a book written by Rhonda Byrne that popularized the Law of Attraction. The book presents the Law of Attraction as a powerful tool for manifesting your dreams and achieving your goals. It suggests that by focusing on positive thoughts and emotions, you can attract the things you want into your life.

The Lucky Girl Syndrome takes a similar approach, but with a focus on young women and empowering them to manifest their dreams. It encourages positive thinking, positive affirmations, and gratitude to attract more positive outcomes in life. Lucky Girl Syndrome aligns more closely with the Law of Assumption than the Law of Attraction – rather than like attracts like, it’s more focused on creating your reality by believing/assuming it has already happened or definitely will happen.

Both “The Secret” and the Lucky Girl Syndrome have been criticized for promoting unrealistic optimism and ignoring the role of hard work and dedication in achieving one’s goals. However, proponents of these approaches argue that a positive mindset can help people overcome obstacles and stay motivated in the face of challenges.

Ultimately, whether you believe in the Law of Attraction, “The Secret,” or the Lucky Girl Syndrome, the power of positive thinking and a positive attitude cannot be denied. While it is important to balance positivity with realism and take concrete action towards achieving our goals, a positive mindset can help us stay focused and motivated along the way.

It’s Up To You!

In the end, whether or not the Lucky Girl Syndrome works for you depends on your own beliefs and mindset. If you are a regular scroller on social media, you may have seen this latest trend and wondered if it is worth trying out. If you do decide to give it a go, be sure to dive in deep, get clear on what you want, believe that you are the luckiest girl on the planet, and set yourself and your life up to receive the blessings that are sure to come your way!
