Getting Lucky - Part II

Ways to get lucky..?

  • Pay attention to your surroundings; you won’t spot good luck unless you look for it.
  • Strike up conversations with strangers; you might meet the love of your life or make an important business contact.
  • After you meet someone interesting, follow up with an email or a phone call.
  • Stay relaxed, even in pressure situations; it’ll help you be more aware.
  • Vary your routine everyday. Walk on the other side of the street, or try a new lunch joint.
  • Be aggressive about making changes you want. Still thinking about going on a country-wide trip? Just go already.
  • Follow your hunches and gut feelings; many seemingly random occurrences are actually the result of good subconscious decisions.
  • Treat nagging doubts as alarm bells; they’re often right, even if you can’t pinpoint the reason.
  • Expect good fortune; if you think something’s going to happen, you’ll be more likely to spot it when it does.
  • Believe in lucky charms. It doesn't have special powers, but the confidence it gives you is very powerful.
  • Smile. People will smile back, and suddenly you’re off to a good start.
  • Outlast bad luck; often a negative turn of events creates unexpected opportunities for good results.
