17 Ways to Make Your Own Luck

how to create your own luck


“You’re lucky.” Anyone who’s heard this knows the truth: behind every turn of good fortune is an even greater bloom of effort and attitude. You don’t have to be Irish or born under a lucky star to be the recipient of doors opening, promotions and great success. Here are 17 ways to put yourself in the beam of Lady Luck.

  • Commit to goals you can believe in – and achieve.
  • Be proactive.
  • Say “yes” more than “no” (discerningly, of course).
  • Keep a positive focus.
  • Be prepared for anything – especially the best.
  • Seek opportunity.
  • Be generous. It has a boomerang effect.
  • Trust your instincts.
  • Be persistent when it matters; redirect your efforts when it’s time.
  • Surround yourself with smart, honest people who believe in you and challenge you.
  • Go for what you really, really want – not what you think you should want.
  • Build your strengths and do work that uses your core competencies.
  • Know when to ask for help.
  • Work smarter, not harder.
  • Learn from your mistakes.
  • Choose happiness.
