Key Ideas

Luck

... is described as events that influence your life but are not of your making.

It confirms the view that we are not in perfect control of our lives. Even the best plans can turn awry.

How to improve your luck

  • Position yourself. Embrace your opportunities and weather the storms.
  • Look for ways to turn your luck around.
  • Stick your neck out. You have to take risks and accept the good and bad that may come.

Be ready to bail

Lucky people know their plans may not always work out. They do not let themselves grow too confident or relaxed. They anticipate change and lean into it. 

Don't push it

People who are lucky always assume that their luck will run out at some point. They don't ride the peak, because they know not to push their luck. 

Stay busy

Lucky people always seem to have several ventures going on at the same time. If one fails, they still have other options.

Believing in luck

Luck is a hard thing to prove. There is no real thing we can call luck, but we can create a real object and transfer luck to it, such as a lucky penny or a lucky charm.

Studies on lucky charms
  • Studies reveal that people perform better on tasks when they have a lucky charm with them. During a series of memory tasks, students who were allowed to keep their lucky charms performed better than students who had their charms taken away.
  • Attitude plays a big role in luck. Someone who believes they are lucky will try harder at a challenging task. That persistence can have a self-reinforcing effect. The harder the task they take on, the more chance of success, increasing the belief that they are lucky.
A positive attitude and luck

A positive attitude towards life makes it seem like more happy events happen for a person.

While it is not rational to believe in luck, understanding the psychology behind it can explain why some people seem to be successful while others can never get to the top.

Scalable based on your skill

Every day there is a particular workout prescribed that is completely scalable based on your skill. For example, if the workout calls for barbell squats with 135 pounds but you can only do squats with the bar (45 pounds), then that’s where you’ll start.

CrossFit is perfect for...
  • Beginners to weight training: If you have never weight trained before, CrossFit is a great place for you to start, provided you have a great coach.
  • People looking for support and community: Every CrossFit gym has a really tight-knit community feel to it.
  • Fitness fanatics: The general protocol is 3 days on, 1 day off, but many CrossFitters end up at the gym more frequently. 
  • Masochists: You’ll often be in situations where you use all your effort to finish a workout and continue to push yourself beyond.
  • Former athletes: You get to compete with people in your class and go online to see how you did against the world’s elite CrossFit athletes.
