Luck is a mindset

  1. 1. GOOD LUCK IS A MINDSET...
  2. 2. It’s not some mystical occurrence that only a few people have...
  3. 3. Believe it or not, luck is an easily learned skill...
  4. 4. Ten years ago, a researcher set out to investigate luck—both good and bad luck... Dr. Richard Wiseman is a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire
  5. 5. He placed an ad in the national newspapers...
  6. 6. Asking people who felt consistently lucky or unlucky... To volunteer for a study, which went on for several years... And the researcher discovered
  7. 7. People’s thoughts and behaviours are responsible for much of their LUCK
  8. 8. He modeled what lucky people think and do to create their luck...
  9. 9. And decided to teach unlucky people “lucky thoughts and lucky behaviors.”
  10. 10. He created a class for unlucky people... It was called “Luck School”
  11. 11. A group of volunteers spend a month doing exercises designed to help them to think and behave like a lucky person...
  12. 12. These exercises helped them: ⇨ expect good luck ⇨ improve recognizing chance opportunities ⇨ listen to their intuition ⇨ follow their hunches ⇨ rebound quickly when bad luck did hit.
  13. 13. One month later, the volunteers returned and described what had happened....
  14. 14. The results were dramatic: 80 % of people were now happier, more satisfied with their lives and, perhaps most important of all, luckier!
  15. 15. So, if you want to increase your luck and good fortune...
  16. 16. 1. Expect it in your life...
  17. 17. 2. Recognize opportunities when they come your way...
  18. 18. 3. Listen to your gut whether an opportunity is presented to you and if it is good or not...
  19. 19. 4. Don’t hesitate...Take action!
  20. 20. Remember: luck is a mindset
  21. 21. Start today and begin to have better and better luck for the rest of your life!
