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.

Network

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.

Awareness

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.

Parting Words

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!

Cheers

    Great tips! Good reminders, too. Once you get a lucky break or two, it’s easy to forget that it’s not something that comes for free.

    I love it! All fantastic suggestions. We must create our own luck and if we arent doing anything proactive to do so we surly will be left behind. Networking is key in my opinion, I am at 5-7 events and meet at least 100 new people every week. This is why my business is constantly expanding. If you want to become successful hang out with successful people it is that simple! Great post Vincent, keep it up!

    @Hi Emma,

    We need constant reminders to remind us that how hard we work is how lucky we get. That is why even when we had our lucky breaks, we should keep on striving. :)

    @Hi Relax,

    Preparation is the key and some red packets definitely help ;)

    @Hi Joe,

    You are doing some serious networking out there and I believe there will be lots of opportunities out there waiting for you. Great job Joe!

  8. Preparation is the key! I absolutely agree with that. I’ve personally missed chances simply because I was not well prepared. That’s why I’m constantly educating myself now and looking out for opportunities along the way.

    These are ALL awesome tips. In my opinion, the most powerful ones are to leave your comfort zone, and to not focus on fear. Fear is such a barrier for many people, and despite the fact that human beings possess the ability to overcome fear, so few people actually bother to do it!

    Great article!

  18. vandealer says:

    This begs the question, is there any such thing as ‘luck’? Or is everything down to what we do for ourselves? Interesting :)

  19. Kelly says:

    I never agree with this sort of thinking ‘Believe There Are Opportunities’. The power of positive thinking leaves you too open to criticizing yourself if you fail.

  20. [...] Still, some people just feel that they are unlucky.  They feel like they are not lucky enough to find the relationship they want.  They feel that only lucky people are able to land a dream job.  What they do not realize is that by thinking they are unlucky; they are actually making themselves less likely to change their luck.
