Why do some people seem to always encounter good fortune while others are constantly bombarded with a slew of bad days?
Decades ago, psychologist Richard Wiseman set out to investigate luck. He found that although unlucky people have almost no insight into the real causes of their good and bad luck, their thoughts and behavior are responsible for much of their fortune.
What differentiates the lucky and the unlucky? How are lucky people able to encounter chance opportunities everywhere they go?
According to Wiseman, lucky people generate good fortune via four basic principles: They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.
It seems luck may not be so much something that happens to you, but rather a result of how you focus your attention.
