Act more extroverted:

Certain personality types are luckier because they tend to create scenarios that maximize opportunities and thereby increase luck.

Who is more lucky?

  • People who are extroverted: More time with others, more interesting possibilities.
  • People who aren’t neurotic: Tense, anxious people are less likely to notice and take advantage of opportunities.
  • People who are open to new experiences: If you resist the new, you’re probably not going to have many interesting things happen.

Are you an introverted neurotic who only listens to oldies and watches reruns? That’s okay.

In the end, it’s your behavior that matters. By acting more extroverted, less neurotic and more open, you can increase luck.

Listen to your intuition:

Lucky people take more steps to boost their intuition as well.

They’re more likely to respond to problems by meditating, clearing their mind, coming back to the problem later or finding a quiet place to think about it.

Again, this isn’t something innate or unchangeable. Want to increase luck in your life? Go with your gut more often.

Lucky people have “grit.” And optimism:

What do you need to do? Be optimistic. Persevere. Funny as it sounds, believe you’re lucky and you’re more likely to actually be lucky.

Be resilient:

Lucky people aren’t always lucky — but they handle adversity differently than unlucky people.

Via Luck Factor:

  • Lucky people see the positive side of their bad luck.
  • Lucky people are convinced that any ill fortune in their lives will, in the long run, work out for the best. 
  • Lucky people do not dwell on their ill fortune.
  • Lucky people take constructive steps to prevent more bad luck in the future.
