Welcome chance

If you do not consider new things, you are bound to feel bored and stifled.

Be open to new things. This will expose you to other opportunities or help you to see things from a different perspective.

Giving reminds us of how lucky we already are.

Sometimes luck is something you can find if you allow yourself to look for it. Luck is about learning where to find an opportunity.

Be aware of your circumstances and surroundings to notice and act on opportunities.

Take a chance

If you don’t push yourself out of your comfort zone, you’ll never know the true extent of your abilities.

Allow yourself to be versatile and wear different hats. Act when you spot an opportunity.

“You will miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.”
Hard work

Create your own luck through hard work.

Lucky people have a positive attitude and are resilient when bad things happen.

Unlucky people tend to be fatalistic and believe that no matter how hard they work, they will be unlucky.

The grass might look greener on the other side, but you also have opportunities on your side of the fence if you will only look for them.

Look for the silver linings even in what seems like a bad situation.

Failure is part of life. Accept that there will be moments when you’ll feel down in the dumps.

Don’t give up. Look for a new angle to approach your problem.

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.

Luck And Chance

Like the flip of a coin coming up with heads or tails, chance is what happens out there, and is an aspect of the physical universe. Luck, on the other hand, is a perceived value of the ‘chance’ outcome.

It is our subjective reality of a good or bad fortune, imposed over the objective reality of the final result or consequence. The chance event is the same, and people see it as lucky or unlucky.

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.
