taught to be lucky

Really?  Can You Be Taught to Be Luckier?

Is being a lucky person something that can actually be taught?  You can learn everything from cooking to computing.  For the most part, if you want to unlock the secrets of something, you can be taught them.

So…does this work when it comes to being lucky?

Turns out…yep. Richard Wiseman, Ph.D. made a career in part out of studying luck to the point where he actually ran a “luck school” through a series of experiments to prove this point.

More specifically, Wiseman developed techniques that guided people to think and behave like lucky people, and the project yielded highly successful results.  How do you measure this sort of success?  Nearly all of the participants in the “luck school” study reported experiencing significant life changes, increased levels of luck, self-esteem, confidence and success.

The upshot?  Your thoughts and behaviors are responsible for a great deal of your own luck or lack thereof.

Which is actually good news.  Stop beating yourself up long enough to realize that, hey, this is actually a great opportunity for you to turn things around!  Your fate is more in your hands than you ever may have thought before!

Here are four tips you can use to improve your thoughts and behaviors so that, in turn, you can improve your odds of success:

Step One:  Name It to Claim It.

Dr. Phil would be so proud.  Seriously, you have to set goals that are S.M.A.A.R.T. goals and yet make them believable or they won’t be achievable.

If you don’t set goals, both long-term and short-term ones, and set a daily goal-setting ritual to remain in tune with them and/or tweak them as necessary, you’ll get lost in the busywork of the present to the point where you’ll not likely enjoy the future you desire.

Step Two:  Be More Open to Opportunities.

Don’t ever miss the forest for the trees.  Pan backwards, get the panoramic view of what’s taking place in your life, rise up above everything to get the 30,000-foot view of it all and above all, have the mindset of being open to all of this data.  Your WHY and your goals will help you sift out anything that’s not important but you need to get everything in the sifter in the first place so you don’t miss a trick.

Lucky people often make their own luck by encountering unexpected opportunities and running with them. If your nose is pressed too hard against the grindstone of the daily drivel, you’ll miss these opportunities.

Step Three:  Never Doubt That You Shall Persevere.

Lucky people acknowledge that there’s bad luck as well as good luck; they just never lose sight of the fact that if they’re hit with bad luck, they’re still in line for good luck, too.

Why is this important?  Lucky people will use failure as a tutor that’ll school them about what to do or not to do in the future.  They don’t look at failure as a statement of their worthiness; it’s a lesson and that’s all.  They never doubt that there’s a gift in the garbage somewhere.

Step Four:  Always Prepare for Good Luck’s Arrival.

Your very thoroughly, properly minted goals are a step in the preparation process.  So is your open mind, which is always prepared to take in useful data and opportunities for use either in the future or on the fly ASAP.  Your failures are your crib notes as to how to prepare for the next time. From there on out, you’re simply using every moment of every day to reach for the highest and best in life, which of course will up your odds of success both personally and professionally.

So, sure, if you’re open to being taught, whether it’s literally by teachers, professors or by mentors in your daily life, or even figuratively by role-models from life in general, there are plenty of lessons to learn…what to do or what not to do…so that you can be more lucky at the end of the day.

It comes down to this:  Are you willing to be taught how to be luckier in life, or are you closed off to being a life-long student of success?  It’s your call.  But I’m a firm believer that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.  It makes more sense to learn how to bring your “A game” as opposed to having a “D-list” mentality.
