The Luck Factor by Richard Wiseman

How often we blame 'LUCK' for our actions and results. The concept of luck brings up an age-old question: “Are some people born lucky and others not?” I believe, answer to both parts of this question is “no.”

Research study published as book The Luck Factor: The Scientific Study of the Lucky Mind by Richard Wiseman, looks at elusive luck factor by investigating the actual beliefs and experiences of lucky and unlucky people. Looking at the results, Wiseman was able to identify four main factors which explained living a lucky and unlucky life. He was then able to show a group of people who considered themselves unlucky, how to think and behave like lucky people. The results were astounding, with almost all participants reporting significant life changes.

Right now - we have the ability to create your own luck. So-called luck is simply the ability to attract your desires into your life.

Attitude as the “mother of luck.” If a positive attitude is the mother of luck, then attraction and abundance round out the family. If you expect a positive outcome, you generally get one. If you pour energy into worrying about a bad outcome, you may create a self-fulfilling prophesy. The law of attraction influences luck as well. Like attracts like; what you put out, you get back. What you focus on influences your results. And a positive attitude plus positive attraction equals abundance in all areas of life - including luck.

Follow this acronym to create your own lucky breaks:

L - Listen and let go. Listen to your intuition and detach from the outcome. Stay focused on your intuitive desires rather than on attempting to control the outcome.

U- Understand and notice. Observe your environment. Be mindful of opportunities. Take your blinders off and see what you’ve missed.

C - Claim what you want. You’ve got to know what you want. Observe what you deny yourself. It’s impossible to create abundance from scarcity - as lucky people know.

K - Keep at it. Listen to your intuition, observe your environment and claim what you want; then take inspired action.

Once your “luck” begins to change and the good times roll in, be mindful. It’s common to experience an identity shift as you attract more desires into your life. This may unconsciously - or consciously - activate your fear. You may feel like you’re in unfamiliar territory and not entirely sure of the ground rules. Persevere. Stay the course. Continue to follow the tenets of the LUCK acronym to help you through this growth spurt.

The next time you catch yourself waiting for a lucky break, take luck into your own hands. Survey your beliefs and thoughts; be aware of what you attract and watch your deepest desires flow more smoothly into your life. Empower yourself and watch the good fortunes of lady luck come your way.
