The Secret to being lucky – Revealed!

Suprisingly failure can be a good thing in helping people be successful in life simply by embracing the lesson, brushing yourself off and moving on. In this extract, secret of being lucky and how to stay positive is revealed.

Give more luck…

“Diligence is the mother of good luck.”

– Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
American statesman, scientist, and printer

luck: noun: a force that makes things happen

You want more luck? Be the force that makes it happen…

  1. Prepare. Work hard to be ready for the opportunities that are important to you. Research. Practice. Perfect.
  2. Be awake. Pay attention to the people, events, and things around you. Evaluate logically and trust your gut instinct.
  3. Take action. Put yourself out there. Explore. Be vulnerable. Make contact with people. Take risks.
  4. Expect positive results. Optimism improves your chances. If (when) you fail, embrace the lesson and continue on, smarter.

That’s it. Now go be lucky (and make something good happen).
