Key Ideas

Maximize Opportunities

Lucky people do not wait for things to happen to them. They take notice and act upon the opportunities that they find.

Listen With Your Gut

Lucky people act on their intuitions across many areas of their lives.

Intuition is when your body and brain have detected a pattern before you have deliberately considered it.

Expect Good Fortune

You are more likely to be successful if you are optimistic about your opportunities. 

When you think things will work out, you are more apt to persevere. You are also open to new opportunities.

Find the silver lining behind the cloud

Lucky people handle adversity differently.

  • They see the positive side of their bad luck.
  • They are convinced that any bad luck they face, will, in the long run, work out for the best.
  • They take constructive steps to prevent more bad luck in the future.

Kiss Up Or Shut Up

Clinical psychologist Al Bernstein recommends you kiss up to them or at least keep your mouth shut until you can get out of there.
