Sometimes it seems like Lady Luck picks only a few people upon which to smile. Fate always seems to work in their favor, and they always land on their feet. Are they really just that lucky? And is there a way of persuading the universe to favor you with the same opportunities? There are proven ways through which you can create your own luck.
These lucky people, whether they realize it or not, have probably found ways to crack the code. They have learned to put themselves in the right situations, take advantage of the right opportunities and accomplish their goals through a lot of hard work. If you’re looking to harness fate, here are 10 proven ways to make your own luck. Be social and improve your odds. Talk to new people at a party. Broaden your social circle, and build your professional network. Introduce old friends to new acquaintances. One of the fastest and best ways to garner more luck is to put yourself out there and meet more people, because people bring connections and connections bring opportunity.
However, don’t forget about your old friends either. Keep in touch with the people with whom you’ve built strong bonds — the ones you know you can count on. Make sure you tend to those relationships, because they are powerful over the long haul. Imagine the stepping stones to success. Visualizing good fortune helps you get there. For instance, the best athletes envision winning a game before it starts. If you are preparing for a job interview or a big presentation, imagine your calm demeanor and your thoughtful responses while you get ready.
If you have a goal in mind, visualize your path to success and figure out where you want to be in a month or a year from now. What does your success look like? Now work backward to where you are now. What are the steps you have to take along the way? Seeing each detail in high resolution is key. Help others and find out how lucky you are. Lucky people don’t hog their prosperity, but give freely of their time and resources. They help others because it’s the right thing to do. However, as a bonus, giving reminds us of how lucky we already are.
And those good deeds will very often come back to us in unexpected ways. Don’t let yourself get stuck in a rut. If you shy away from experiencing new things, you are bound to feel bored and stifled. Be curious about the world around you. When we put ourselves out there, we welcome chance into our lives. Be on the lookout for luck. Luck isn’t always something that you stumble upon, or that randomly happens to you.
