...’cause it’s not some­thing you’re just born with!

Cosmopolitan (India) - - UPFRONT -

Ad­just Your At­ti­tude Lucky peo­ple are gen­er­ally op­ti­mistic. They ex­pect luck, so don’t give up as eas­ily—even when things aren’t look­ing great. They ex­pect to make friends, get that job, and this at­ti­tude is re­flected back by the peo­ple they meet. For a boost of pos­i­tiv­ity, vi­su­alise good things hap­pen­ing to you daily. In­crease Your Odds You know how buy­ing more lot­tery tick­ets ups odds? Ap­ply that logic to life, says Richard Wise­man, au­thor of The Luck Fac­tor. Net­work­ing can bring luck, for in­stance, be­cause it in­creases odds of meet­ing or be­ing in­tro­duced to the love of your life or your fu­ture boss. Trust Your Instict Ac­cord­ing to Wise­man, un­lucky peo­ple of­ten ig­nore hunches, but when lucky ones ‘get a feel­ing’, they lis­ten. In­tu­ition is our brain’s way of try­ing to tell us some­thing. Trust­ing it can pay off ma­jorly. Shake Things Up “Un­lucky peo­ple tend to be crea­tures of rou­tine,” says Wise­man. “They take the same route to work and talk to the same types at par­ties. But lucky peo­ple in­tro­duce va­ri­ety into their lives. One per­son thought of a colour be­fore a party and then in­tro­duced him­self to peo­ple wear­ing it. Such be­hav­iour boosts the like­li­hood of chance op­por­tu­ni­ties.”
