Luck: Why some yes and others no?

Who I am

Broadly speaking, it could be said that there are two types of
people: those who believe in luck
(and they are almost always embittered) and those who believe in their own
chance. The latter tend to be open to all options,
they evaluate all imaginable paths they can follow and, if not, things
they go as they hoped, they get up, they shake off the disappointment and
they continue looking for new opportunities. Obviously, this way of considering
luck allows them to be much happier and reach theirs

Luck is hard to study but Elizabeth
Williams Nutt, Professor of Psychology at St. Mary's University in
Maryland found that "lucky" people have certain characteristics
essential in common: they take advantage of opportunities, they are competent, they have
self-confidence and take risks. Another important detail is
that these people tend to have a good support system available
around them. On the other hand, Richard Wiseman, found that the
lucky people have a very outgoing personality. This means that
these people are more likely to have casual encounters, meet people
new and have a large group of friends and acquaintances. Likewise, these
people are less neurotic, which indicates that they experience fewer negative states
such as: anxiety, anger, guilt and depression. This psychologist has carried out a very experiment
interesting in which he put some money on the floor because people do it
found by chance. Both the people who considered themselves lucky and those
who believed themselves unfortunate collected the money, only the first, as soon as they collected,
they headed to the coffee machine and started a lively conversation with
one of the researchers, while those who considered themselves unfortunate, picked up
the money without showing any cheerfulness and they left immediately. What does this mean? That probably not even this "fortuitous" encounter
of money has changed the belief of those who consider themselves unfortunate. In other
words, we are so closed in the vision we have of ourselves that not even i
external signals make us change our minds. In short, maybe we should change the concept that
we are lucky. Stop thinking it is something outside of us and
begin to imagine that luck is also an attitude that we must
show in front of life. Fortunately, Wiseman gives us some tips for “attracting
luck ”: - Break the routine: meet new people, undertake
different paths to reach the same places and open up to opportunities,
even when they are unknown. - Transform what is negative into positive: if
something goes wrong, you think it could have been worse and try to
get the most out of this experience, even if it will only serve as a lesson
for the future. - Follow your instincts: many times it is instinct
which leads us to make the best decisions, so, we should learn to
listen to it better. - Plan important but achievable goals:
set important goals that require effort and perseverance but
that you can really achieve. Putting the finish line farther sometimes e
everything you need to get lucky.
