The Luck Factor
I feel that luck and superstitions are people's beliefs. I agree with the author that the real causes of a person's good and bad luck is attribute to their thoughts and behavior that are responsible for their good or bad fortune. The author also believes that there are four basic principles to having good fortune. 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. Having a positive attitude and believing that one can accomplish and fulfill certain tasks and goals seems to be a factor in having good luck and fortune. The author feels that lucky people think outside the box. Unlucky people are afraid to think outside the box. Lucky people are optimistic and unlucky people are pessimistic.
