What Is Good Luck?

What we call good luck is not always what it appears to be. It seems like random fortunate coincidences, but there are things we do that cause more of what we call "luck," both good and bad. We don't always know we are doing these things, but what if we did? Can we create luck?

In fact, there are at least seven specific techniques you can use to generate more good luck. This page is about just one of those techniques. It is one of the easiest techniques, and it is simply choosing to recognize the luck you already have, until your mind is trained to do this automatically.

Recognizing Good Luck

I bought a particular car once, and suddenly I began to see the same model all over. They had always been there, of course, but now I was noticing them, because my mind was "tuned into" that model. Maybe you've had a similar experience. It is how our brains work. We see more of what we are looking for, and this is true with luck too. Look for it, and you'll see more of it.

Why does this matter? Two reasons. First, when you start counting the ways you are lucky, you'll notice that you feel better. Recognition of "blessings" brings a sense of gratitude that is good for your soul, even if you're not religious, and the soul is only the mind. The psychology is real regardless, so this is a brain training exercise for a better life.

Second, when you start recognizing the luck you have, and watching for more, you'll notice that you "get lucky" more often. This won't be your imagination. You will actually have more good luck, and there is a logical explanation for this.

Creating Good Luck

Some people will tell you that God or the universe blesses you when there's gratitude in your heart. Perhaps this is a nice thought, but it's not my style. A more scientific explanation is that when you acknowledge luck, and habitually look for more, you create a certain frame of mind. This helps you take advantage of opportunities you might otherwise not recognize.

I'll give you a personal example. My brother mentioned one day that he is making money from simply hanging advertisements on his websites. I had no interest in the internet at the time, and might have just said "That's nice," and let it go at that. My mind, however, is in the habit of looking for "good luck," however, so I asked a few questions. A year and a half later, I am sitting here making a good living writing about topics like this.

There is a saying you have probably heard; "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade." It describes the frame of mind of a lucky person. Recognize how lucky you are, even in small ways, and it makes the possibility of good luck more real to you. This gets you watching, and the watching gets you thinking, "How can I make lemonade from these lemons? How can this be lucky for me? Where is the good luck in this situation?"
