“Fortune favors the bold”- Anon
In the book the Secret the writer covers the power of positive imagery and positive visualizations. You have to will your success into reality- Was what I always remember the Writer saying.
Even though I am a skeptic of the Book and the movie one thing that one of the speakers said sticks with me even now.
“I know alot of people think they arent responsible for the problems in their life; Im going to be in your face and say “Yes. You are the cause of it.’
I used to always think I was unlucky, Untill I realised a change of attitude is better. Its not what happens to you thats important, but how you respond to what happens to you.
With that said Telegraph a british newspaper did an interesting article on the skill of being lucky.
“The findings have revealed that although unlucky people have almost no insight into the real causes of their good and bad luck, their thoughts and behaviour are responsible for much of their fortune.
….My research revealed that lucky people generate good fortune via four basic principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.”
A pretty good read. check the article Here
