Do You Control Your Own Luck

If you’re like me, you know people who seem to be lucky in nearly any circumstance? They find a good parking space when not even bad ones are available. By some uncanny coincidence, they meet the right people at just the right time. They win more drawings they enter than the average person (yes – that’s you, Bertha)!
Richard Wiseman, the head of a psychology research department at the University of Hertfordshire in England, and author of the book, "The Luck Factor," did in-depth studies with his colleagues at the university's Perrott-Warrick Research Unit focusing on what makes some people lucky and others not. After conducting hundreds of experiments and thousands of interviews, he discovered that lucky people think and behave in ways that create good fortune in their lives. They are 1) particularly open to possibility; and 2) they expect good fortune to come their way.
Are you open to possibilities or do you think “I’ll never succeed.”? Do you honestly expect good fortune to come your way – or do you have the attitude, “It always happens to other people”?
This concept applies to your business as well!
