Over the last twenty years I have had the great fortune, and, yes, some pretty good luck as well to be mentored and/or advised by some uber successful entrepreneurs, and, without exception, all of them firmly believed that both hard work AND luck put them on the proverbial and prosperous map. Many cited that chance opportunity or meeting that never might have happened if luck hadn’t stepped in.  And, now, thanks to some studies done by Richard Wiseman, PhD. regards how lucky people get that way, we now have a set of suggestions that can tip the success scales in our favor. Here now THREE STEPS that anyone can take to make their own luck now:

1. LISTEN TO YOUR GUT HUNCHES. Once again, recent research shows that trusting in your intuitive instincts is one of the easiest and most effective ways to ensure fortune in your future. The late Steve Jobs was an outspoken proponent of listening to your gut as evidenced by that stirring speech he offered a graduating class at Stanford. In that same speech Jobs said, “You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.” He told the audience that embracing this approach had never let him down, but, rather, had made all the difference in his life.

2. EXPECT THE BEST. People who have been categorized as being lucky were also found to have far higher expectations of good things happening in their lives (and careers) than the ones who don’t. Studies show that lucky people indeed had exceedingly high expectations for every outcome and event the engaged in. Modern day psychology might call this ‘acting as if’ behavior but lucky people call this creating their future in a proactive and empowered way.

3. SAY YES! That’s what lucky people do – – they say “yes” to every opportunity regardless. Lucky people realize that something as seemingly benign as a conversation with a stranger standing next to you (or sitting in the seat next to you while listening to your favorite women speaker!) can be a ‘chance’ encounter that can change your life for the better.

Use any or all of these steps to create your more fortunate future and, as always, GOOD LUCK!
