Lucky people act on their intuitions across many areas of their lives.

- Listen To Hunches
- Maximise Opportunities
- Expect Good Fortune
- Turn Bad Luck Into Good
Certain personality types are luckier because they tend to create scenarios that maximise opportunities and thereby increase luck.
Who are the lucky?
- People who are extroverted: More time with others, more interesting possibilities.
- People who aren't neurotic: Tense, anxious people are less likely to notice and take advantage of opportunities.
- People who are open to new experiences: If you resist the new, you're probably not going to have many interesting things happen.
Interpretation of difficult times.
- Lucky people see the positive side of their bad luck.
- Lucky people are convinced that any ill-fortune in their lives will, in the long run, work out for the best.
- Lucky people do not dwell on their ill-fortune.
- Lucky people take constructive steps to prevent more bad luck in the future.
Expect Good Fortune
- Isolation is the enemy of optimism
- Attention to intentions
But don't be afraid of failure.
Develop mental skills to re-evaluate failure with an optimistic mindset.
