Many people believe luck to be something that it is not like an internal or personal quality. (Stewart, Young 2011) People also have searched for ways to improve their luck. People carry lucky charms and feel that that object will bring them luck. Good luck and bad luck can transform lives. Wiseman's research suggested that lucky people create their own good fortune. Wiseman said, "Lucky people 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."
