How to increase your Luck?

Recently read an amazing article on Time Magazine. It was based on the findings of Richard Wiseman. He has spent considerable time studying some very lucky people to figure out what they had in common.

Here are 4 ways in which you can increase your luck-

1) Maximize Opportunities
Logic - if you lock yourself in your house, how many exciting, serendipitous things are going to happen to you? Not many.

Lucky people create, notice, and act upon the chance opportunities in their lives.
Human Psychiatry says that certain personality types are luckier because they tend to create scenarios that maximize opportunities. These are -

1. Extroverts
2. Control over fear - fearful people tend to create dangerous scenarios in their mind and escape from a situation.
3. Adventurism - People who are open to new experiences
Mind Mantra TIP - By acting more extroverted, less anxious and more open, you can increase luck.

2) Listen To your Heart
Logic - Luck is mostly about taking decisions. If you take a decision in which the result is in accordance with what your heart desires, there is a greater chance of fighting to achieve that result.

Intuition is accepting what your heart tells you and move accordingly.

Human Psychiatry finds that- Acceptance of the outcome of your decision is the most important ways to improve intuition.

Mind Mantra Trip - Never take a decision in excited or depressed state. Give yourself 5min - meditate, clear the mind, listen to a song, have a coffee... and when your mind is diverted you'll get what your heart says about it.

3) Be Positive
Logic - You’re more likely to try new things, follow through on opportunities and have them succeed if you believe they’ll work out well.

Mind Mantra Tip - Lucky people attempt to achieve their goals, even if their chances of success seem slim. They don't give up. Persevere. They might fail but the feeling of having tried their best can make them walk through any adversity.

4) The prophets of Doom
Many astrologers, fortune-tellers and witches tend to have sessions only focusing on the negatives fortune of ones life.

Human Psychiatry- when your mind is fearful and worried about your personal/professional life, you naturally seek re-assurance.

You want someone to tell you that everything will be fine.

Bad Astrologers, fortune-tellers mostly play with fear and re-enforce your negativity by introducing more negativity in your mind.

Negativity leads to further "bad luck", as you loose hope about your life.

Hinduism says a good astrologer is someone who motivates you by showing the positives in life without charging money.

5) Bad Luck is another name for Good Luck
Most people blame, curse, swear and find faults in case of adversity. 
The easiest explanation is too blame your luck.
Bad luck is the greatest teacher you can ever have... it gives you a chance of turning the tables in your favor.

Logic - Lucky people aren’t always lucky — but they handle adversity differently than unlucky people.

Lucky people see the positive side of their bad luck.
Lucky people are convinced that any ill fortune in their lives will fade away in front of good faith and patience.

Mind Mantra Tip - The motivational stories you mostly like are the ones were an undergo goes to become a hero. Its time you turn your life into a motivational story.

Richard Wiseman mentioned that 80 percent of people who attended his Luck enhancing classes and 
enforced these principles in their life said that their luck had increased.
On average, these people estimated that their luck had increased by more than 40 percent.
Not only were they luckier, particpants also scored higher on life satisfaction.
