How to Get Lucky

“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.”Brian Tracy

It seems that everyone is at least a little superstitious. Some people won’t walk under a ladder others avoid black cats. A major league baseball coach (Jim Leyland 2011) wore the same pair of boxers to the ballpark and would not wash them until his team’s winning streak ended. Some Chinese business men/women will not rent or buy a building until they have consulted a Fung Shui expert.

Do you really have to have a special set of underwear or have your building set up just right to get lucky?

Of course not!  You can increase the amount of luck you experience in life but good results really don’t have anything to do with luck as most people define it.

As Orison Swett Marden once said, “The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.”

In other words, getting lucky is an attitude, a state of mind. You need to put your mind in a place where you can notice useful opportunities and circumstances and then take advantage of them.

Here’s how you can get lucky and make more happen in your life:

  1. Expect the best!

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.”Earl Nightingale   

You get what you expect. Now this may be because your brain attracts the things you think about or it just may better notice the things you focus on.

  • It doesn’t matter the reason, it just matter that it happens! Since that’s the case focus on what you want, the positive events in your life. This will allow you to take advantage of them.
  1. Go with your gut.

Have you ever been working on a problem and then left it alone and then woke up in the middle of the night or had a flash of insight in the shower? Of course you have!

In fact, when you really think about it, most of the problems you face get solved this way, through other than conscious processes. These processes send out subtle messages that, if you’ll listen to them, can make you a lot luckier.

  1. Make your luck.

Luck usually won’t find you if you’re sitting on your couch watching TV. You have to give yourself opportunities to be lucky.

Keep your mind open and alert for these opportunities. If you’re looking for them, there are many within your reach each day. Get up and go look for opportunities at your work, in your town or on the internet.

  1. Practice Mindfulness

There are no opportunities in your present or past. There are only opportunities in the here and now.  Make it a regular practice of being mindful and in the present moment instead of living in the future or fretting about past failures. You can get lucky on when you allow opportunities to present themselves to you.

If you’re looking for ways to live in the present I’ve written a book titled “Modern Mindfulness” that can help you which you can find here

  1. Dump Stressors

Is someone or something in your life causing you a lot of stress? Get rid of them! Reducing your stress enhances your luck.

  1. Work hard!

“The harder you work, the luckier you get.”Gary Player

No matter what any guru will tell you, it takes more than thinking about it to get lucky. If you spend 10 hours each day digging for gold you’ll find a lot more than if you’re only digging for 2 hours. The luckiest people are often those that put in the most time and work.

  1. Be a sponge

Information is all around you but it doesn’t make any difference unless you look at it. Grow your knowledge, be a sponge. The more you know, the better you can understand the opportunities that cross your path.

  1. Share your wealth and yourself

When you are generous with your time and your treasure you’ll find good things happening to you. Your life will be filled with many more opportunities.

  1. Forget about things that don’t turn out the way you wanted

When things don’t work out do as Johnny Depp, who played Donnie Brasco in the movie “Donnie Brasco” so elegantly put it, “forget about it!”

That’s how to deal with bad luck effectively. Instead of dwelling on it learn from it, make the best of it, and move on.

Use These Tips to Get Lucky

What life comes down to is if you want to be luckier you have to give yourself more chances to get lucky. Stay focused on the present.  Do everything in your power to make the most of today. That’s how you create a brighter future.

Expect good things to happen and soon you’ll start enjoying even more of the luck you seek.
