Would you consider yourself as a lucky or unlucky person? Why would you think in that way? Are there ways to boost your luck?
My friend, Vivi, lent me this book, “The Luck Factor”, when I was in Africa. This book may answer your questions in mind. I never imagined ‘Luck’ can be researched scientifically. But that’s how it is. If you don’t have time to read his book, well, let me just summarize it for you. The summary tells it all and the rest of the book is just charts and graphs for proofing the whole thing.
The Four Principle and Twelve sub-principles of luck
1) Maximise Your Chance Opportunities
Lucky people create, notice and act upon the chance opportunities in their life.

c. Lucky people are open to new experiences in their life (Play the dice game)
2. Listen to your lucky hunches
Lucky people make successful decisions by using their intuition and gut feelings

3. Expect Good Fortune
Lucky people’s expectation about the future help them fulfil their dreams and ambitions

Affirm your luck:
” I’m a lucky person and today is going to be another lucky day. I know that I can be even luckier in the future. I deserve good luck and will receive some good fortune today.”
Set lucky goals:
short-term goals (next month)
