In the past I would use the words coincidence, chance, serendipity, collective unconscious, and synchronicity randomly as alternatives to the word luck. Little did I know that I was missing out on a huge opportunity to improve my life. The good news is that I am catching up fast, and so too can you.
Better late than never I now recognise that synchronicity is far more important than just a word. It is a whole philosophy. Carl Jung was fascinated by meaningful coincidences and described them as due to synchronicity. In other words, these coincidences were far from due to random chance.
Jung was not the only person with these views, and Albert Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli in particular were frequent guests at his dinner table. Both of these scientists were Nobel prize winners and took his work seriously, and for this reason if for no other, we should too.
