Create your own luck
Luck: The chance happening of fortunate events. Everyone likes to be lucky. Being lucky is seen as an act of a higher power, you can’t create luck.
Well, I am going to tell you how to increase the odds of being lucky and to become lucky yourself!
I’ve always worked very, very hard, and the harder I worked, the luckier I got. – Alan Bond
Everyone knows someone is his social contacts who is called “lucky.” I, for example, have a friend that always has an edge on things. Whenever we go to the casino, he’s the one that goes home with 100 euros profit and I lost it all.
The big difference between us? He believes he is going to win “just because”, while I believe in odds. I know that casino’s are made to make money and am aware that the odds of winning are very small. My friend however does not think that way. He goes to the casino with the intention: “I am going to win money tonight,” and he does!
A psychologist named Richard Wiseman investigated certain aspects of luck.
He first tested the physical aspect of luck. He asked 700 people if they believed they would win the lottery. When all these people bought the tickets, the people who had twice the confidence didn’t win more than less “lucky ones.”
However Richard found out that people who tend to be lucky have a more positive attitude in life. They are happier about their life in all areas. By being happier they tend to interpret situations differently, more positive, than the less lucky ones.
So people who think of themselves as lucky tend to expect good things to happen so when things are actually happening their attention focuses on the positive aspects. When thinking positive thoughts, people tend to move towards these thoughts, and this way the goals are clear!
Think about it: Positivism leads to success. You can create your own environment of luck. Don’t think to much, feel. Start today
