People can make our own luck... Itâ€™s something that we are creating by our thoughts and behavior. ~Richard Wiseman
Eric Barker stashed this in Diabolical Plans For World Domination
BELIEVING in luck can lead to luck.
"People who feel theyÂ are lucky areÂ more charismatic. It felt good to be around them."
Hereâ€™s Richard Wiseman:
Through doing countless interviews with lucky and unlucky people I foundÂ you could tell within seconds which type of person you were about to interview. The lucky people were moreÂ engaging and upbeat. And emotions are contagious.Â After some timeÂ with aÂ lucky person youÂ feel good about yourself and you start to see the world in a very positive way. You spend time with an unlucky person and you start to focus on that back pain youâ€™d almost forgotten about but now appears to be ten times worse. We have some research coming out which shows that one of the major factors is not how you yourself feel, but how you can make other people feel.Â Itâ€™s very closely relatedÂ to charisma.
The harder I work the luckier I get. And that makes me work even harder. A virtuous cycle
Luck does favor those who work hard to make the most of our opportunities.Â
Can you change your luck? Yes, you can. Hereâ€™s Richard:
What the work shows as a whole is that people can change their luck. Luck is not something paranormal in nature. Itâ€™s something that we are creating by our thoughts and behavior.
How to attract good luck:
- Maximize Opportunities:Â Keep trying new things.
- Listen To Hunches:Â Especially if itâ€™s an area where you have some experience, trust your intuition.
- Expect Good Fortune:Â Be an optimist. A little delusion can be good.
- Turn Bad Luck Into Good:Â Donâ€™t dwell on the bad. Look at the big picture.
