O2 LIFE >>> How To Get Lucky in Life



by Dr. Damigo; PhD

Do you consider yourself lucky or unlucky?
What is luck, anyway?
It’s tempting to consider it as some kind of magical force bestowing good fortune or ill-fortune upon those who cross its path.

This does not mean that ‘luck’ does not exist. It all depend son how you understand it.

Lately I came across a study by R. Wiseman, a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire, who surveyed a number of people and, through a series of questionnaires and interviews, determined which of them considered themselves lucky or unlucky. He then carried out an experiment, by giving both the “lucky” and the “unlucky” people a newspaper and asked them to look through it and tell him how many photographs were inside. He found that on average the unlucky people took two minutes to count all the photographs, whereas the lucky ones determined the number in a few seconds.How could the “lucky” people do this?

Because they found a message on the second page that read, “Stop counting. There are 43 photographs in this newspaper.”

So why didn’t the unlucky people see it?

Because they were so intent on counting all the photographs that they missed the message.

Wiseman noted,
“Unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. They go to parties intent on finding their perfect partner, and so miss opportunities to make good friends. They look through the newspaper determined to find certain job advertisements and, as a result, miss other types of jobs. Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there, rather than just what they are looking for.”

Ever wondered what's behind your run of good or bad luck?

Lucky people are blessed not by good fortune per se, but by a sense of possibility.

My own experience suggests that lucky people generate good fortune via four basic principles.

They are:
  • keen at creating and noticing chance opportunities, 
  • work by listening to their intuition, 
  • generate self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and 
  • cater  for a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.
