Are You Running Out Of Luck?
Have you ever met someone who seem to be more lucky than you do? You would say they are lucky to get the job, met the girl of their life or even lucky to have a winning streak in stock market and why is it happening to them and not to you?
What is the difference between them and you? Why do they seem so much luckier?
Create Your Own Luck
If you study people who seem luckier, you will notice that their success stem from making wiser choices and taking action. They basically created their own luck and make things under their control instead of leaving their life to chance.
These are the people who will always seem to be luckier and also the one who get the better things in life. Here are 10 tips to help you become one of them.
10 Tips To Help You Improve Your Luck
Believe There Are Opportunities
First of all, you must be a firm believer in there are tons of opportunities out there in this world for you to be successful in life. Once you have this belief that there are abundance, there is a higher chance that you will find the opportunities that you need compared to being a negative person thinking that there are lack of opportunities in this world.
For an example, a secretary who make lots of mistakes in her reports created her own correction fluid which turn out to be a multi million industry. She recognize her opportunity and also took the action to seize it.
By networking, we are opening our world to boundless of opportunities. Lucky people are always great at networking and think about how many times joint ventures are being made after talking to strangers and getting to know them.
People who are lucky are normally aware of their surroundings and is always looking around for opportunities to make things happen. Their awareness helps them to discover opportunities that others have missed.
Preparation Is The Key
Always be prepared. The worst thing that can happen is to miss a million dollars opportunity because you are not prepared. Always spend time in educating yourself to make sure that you are prepared to take your opportunity when it comes.
For people who are in the stock market, only those who are prepared are able to grab up stocks in this depressed market that are selling at a bargain price.
Always Take Action
Without taking action, nothing will happen in our life. Action is one of the most important aspect of being lucky and it is also the most forgotten action. People spent time preparing themselves and only to see them moving away from opportunities when it arises.
The person who you seem as successful only became successful after they took the action to grab their opportunity. One of my friend got his own business at an age of 22 and now have a stream of passive income which is around what the average adults are earning and he is still studying for his degree. This only happen because he took action when the opportunity surfaced. So always remember to take action and do not let your opportunities slip away.
Focus On Result
When we focus on fear, it is harder to accomplish what we want to accomplish because fear weigh us down and stop our progress. It is only a matter of time when fear overwhelm us and cause us to stop everything altogether.
When we focus on result, it will be much easier to accomplish what we want to accomplish because focusing on results will make us more positive and we will start to look at opportunities instead of problems.
Leave Comfort Zone
Successful people tend to leave their comfort zone to pursue things that will add value to their life. Leaving the comfort zone tend to help us discover new opportunities and we are likely to pick up valuable experience along the way.
They Do Not Burn The Bridges
There are times when you see people burning the bridges when they are already successful and it is definitely not recommended because we never know when we need the help of others. Always remember this, the people we had met while we are going up are the people we are going to meet when we are going down. If things really take a tumble for you and you did not burn your bridges, you will be glad that you still can find people who are still willing to help.
Ask and Offer for Help
There are people who don’t ask for help when they really need it. Lucky people ask for help when they need it and they also reciprocate when others need help. When you are helping others, you tend to build up relationship and they are more likely to help you when you need it.
Say Yes More Often
I recently watched a movie, “Yes Man” starring Jim Carrey. It was a wonderful movie and I also picked up a few lessons from the movie. Jim Carrey was told by the guru to say Yes to everything and by saying Yes to all the things, he met lots of new opportunities and also the love of his life.
We do not need to say Yes to everything in life but by saying Yes more frequently, it is more likely for us to find our lucky break.
There is definitely a thing call luck and that is why we are here in this world and it is also possible to enhance your luck. Follow this 10 tips and you will definitely start to feel luckier. Good luck!
