How to Become Lucky
By Jason Bartholomew,
Have you ever known someone who was so lucky that you are envious of them? If so, you might be watching them like a hawk trying to figure out just what the heck they're doing to get so lucky!
And what would you do about it if you knew what the common traits of lucky people are and that you could begin developing them as habits in your life? If you have an idea of how you might use this information, then this article ought to be a real eye-opener for you.
What we will do is look at the five most common traits of lucky people...
1. Remember the Good Things
In his book "Think and Grow Rich" Napoleon Hill wrote a series of experiments which were conducted to determine what the difference was between lucky people and unlucky people.
The most common trait of lucky people is that they had the tendency to remember the good things that have happened to them.
So they talked about the good things that happened to them, and let the "bad" things just be a part of the past. Naturally, when you hear someone talk about only the good things that happen to them, it's easier to perceive them as "lucky."
2. Keep Working
Lucky people are normally just people who continue to work in spite of the fact that they're discouraged or that they don't "feel" like working. Obviously, if you give up on things when the going gets tough you're not going to get as much of what you want in your life...
...but the opposite is also true. Luck is often nothing more than preparedness meeting opportunity, and being prepared for opportunities means continuing to work even when those opportunities are nowhere in sight.
3. Know What You Want
Most of getting what you want in life is simply knowing what you want and sticking to it without being distracted by all of the other opportunities out there.
Again, people who seem to be lucky are those who keep working even when things get tough. That takes a strong sense of purpose that can only come from having a definite chief aim in life.
Knowing exactly what you want also causes you to come off as confident and determined, which often draws the assistance of people who are willing to help.
4. Take Chances
Lucky people are also in the habit of taking chances rather than stepping back and thinking about all the things that can go wrong before taking any action. They don't wait for the perfect time or circumstance, but they are willing to take chances when most people are not willing to take them.
Combine this with the fact that they remember the good things that happened, that they know what they want, and they the seldom give up, you have a near perfect formula for luck.
Only one more thing required...
5. Have Definite Standards
Most people who never get what they want out of life simply lower their standards and settle for something that they don't really want. Obviously, this leads to a negative attitude about life which has an effect on your attitude and your ability to persevere in times of difficulty.
Lucky people, on the other hand, stick to their standards even when it seems that it is impossible to have their standards fulfilled. And since they know what they want, take chances and persevere.
And that's all there is creating your own luck!
