Become a lucky person

  • Be a social butterfly: Lucky people enjoy relating to other people.
  • Periodically do something stupid: Luck is more likely to fall on those who take a dumb risk or two.
  • Maximize your positive luck and minimize the negative one.
  • Be optimistic: Our performance usually rises to the level of our expectations.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Luck is a perceptual bias

In other people, we focus on the successful result, not the struggle and growth experiences they endured to reach it, while in ourselves, all we’re aware of is the struggle we endure and not the success that is readily apparent to others.

... to a certain extent. We may not directly affect major opportunities of our life at any given moment (like finding oil on our property), but we can indirectly influence how many opportunities spring up and the ferocity with which we pursue them.

Be social

Put yourself out there and meet more people, because people bring connections and connections bring opportunity.

Also, keep in touch with your established relationships.

Maximize Opportunities

Lucky people do not wait for things to happen to them.

They take notice and act upon the opportunities that they find.

  • Trigger - the moment when something unusual or unexpected happens.
  • Connect the dots - observe the trigger and link it to something seemingly unrelated, thus realising the potential valued within a unique event.
  • Sagacity and tenacity - the ability to follows through and create an unexpected positive outcome.
