[PER] best luck! - природа "удачливости"

round dicesThe loser's guide to getting lucky - небольшая, но довольно убедительная статья про природу "удачливости" ("научная" и research-based конечно, а как же). удивительно, что всё очень похоже на правду.

"Unlucky people are generally more tense than lucky people, and this anxiety disrupts their ability to notice the unexpected."

"Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there rather than just what they are looking for."

Finally - four top tips for becoming lucky:

  • Listen to your gut instincts - they are normally right

  • Be open to new experiences and breaking your normal routine

  • Spend a few moments each day remembering things that went well

  • Visualise yourself being lucky before an important meeting or telephone call. Luck is very often a self-fulfilling prophecy
