What is luck? Is it fate? Is it chance? Is it the Gods smiling down upon you? Guess again, says Dr. Richard Wiseman. Enter The Luck Factor.
After three years of research, Wiseman arrived at the conclusion that luck can be learned. Wiseman breaks down luck into four principles:
- Maximize Your Chance Opportunities: Lucky people create, notice, and act upon the chance opportunities in their lives.
- Listen to Your Lucky Hunches: Lucky people make successful decisions by using their intuition and gut feelings.
- Expect Good Fortune: Lucky people's expectations about the future help them fulfill their dreams and ambitions.
- Turn Bad Luck Into Good: Luck people have the ability to see the positive side of their bad luck.
Filled with great anecdotes and exercises to determine your "Luck Profile" and to improve your luck, The Luck Factor has landed a spot on the MBG Bookshelf.
