How to enhance your LUCK! (the mysterious secret of success)

February 27, 2010

By now, I’m certain that the concepts of Geology from the last post must have sunk in. You know that Geology and Success are so closely related, don’t you?
For those of you who’ve just stumbled upon this blog and have missed the last post, click here to read what success is all about before you read any further.

So there are Internet Gurus and there are Success Secrets; there are life coaches and there are smart marketers, all of who promise an elusive, ‘secret’ formula that will propel you to tizzying heights in your life, career, marriage, blah and blah. And yes, they charge a bomb!

But since you’ve read the first part (Success is all about ___ & ___) and have come to realize what you truly need to do to succeed, here’s the next, mysterious secret- for free.

This secret is called luck.
L – U – C – K, a simple four letter word that’s always intrigued mortals. Yet, few people understand it. Most just attribute it to chance or a coin flip.

Simply put,
‘Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity

& it is also

‘being at the right place at the right time‘.

You might think that from the 4 underlined words, only preparation seems under your control; opportunity, right place and right time are, well, a matter of luck.

But if Richard Wiseman, author of the ‘Luck Factor’ is to be believed, you hold the strings of the right opportunity, right place and right time too!

Luck was and still is a mystery for most of us, right? So lets make ‘Luck’ a lil easier for you. Lets take the mystery out of it and look at 3 simple yet extremely powerful ways to enhance your LUCK!

1. NETWORK & EXPERIMENT
– One of the best and easiest ways to enhance your chance opportunities is to know a large number of people from diverse backgrounds. The more contacts you make, the more doors you create for luck to knock. Look at the migratory birds for example. They drop food grains and seeds whenever and wherever they fly. Each seed has the potential to grow into a tree!
– Be open to new experiences and events. When you go to a restaurant, don’t just stick to the tried and tested. Try out the new stuff instead. Experiment some more.

2. BE INTUITIVE & EXPECT GOOD LUCK
– Many times we go against our will (either to please others or to avert the feeling of fear). But most often we realize that our intuitions and gut feelings were indeed right!
– When people start of any task without confidence and without persevering hard enough, they are actually planning to fail. Why not start of positively even if chances of success are slim?

3. LEARN TO MORPH
This thing here means to ‘transform’ and to ‘change’ with ease. Dwell not on ‘what is not’ but on ‘what can be’. Take steps to morph areas of your life by incorporating principles 1 & 2. Remember, Change is the only constant. Do not be too rigid.


Feeling Lucky already?
I always do when I look at life with these 3 principles in mind.

In a nutshell,
– Drop your seeds everywhere
Remember, mankind’s greatest inventions happened only when some wacko decided to experiment
Listen to your gut… chances are you’ll get lucky
Expect success
Change, Morph


Remember, they will do more good to you than you can even imagine.

So do not blame luck ever again. Because if you do, you’re just blaming yourself!

Go,
Get Lucky folks!
