On luck

The most creative people capitalize on the fact that vision comes from within. – Chris Orwig
Your unique view of the world is your most valuable asset, regardless of what you do. One way to sharpen and improve this view is by channeling good luck. As Richard Wiseman demonstrated, luck isn’t arbitrary after all. And when it comes to luck, it seems we do have the ability to amplify or diminish its effect, as Wiseman later found.
According to Wiseman, these people “generate” their own good fortune by following four basic principles: Create and notice chance opportunities. Make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition. Create self-fulfilling prophecies via positive expectations. Adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.
– Richard Wiseman from The Creative Fight by Chris Orwig
