Rabbit’s foot keychains, inside out ball caps and a penny on the ground–we could all use a bit more luck in our lives. How can we make it happen? The Balance Everyday offers 8 time-tested methods to bring more luck into your life. We are willing to try all of these suggestions!
- Positive Thinking Attracts Luck: If you’re the type of person who believes that the glass is half full, not half empty, then you’re already practicing positive thinking. Studies have shown that being optimistic can relieve stress and help you live longer. But can it help you win sweepstakes, too?
- Accentuate the Positive with Visualization: Visualization is a technique where you picture yourself accomplishing something you want, which helps you work out the steps to make that thing happen. For example, think about winning a prize, actually feel yourself winning your dream prize, and use that visual image to fuel your luck.
- Affirmations Reinforce Lucky Thinking: Affirmations are ways of planting the seeds of success in your subconscious, helping you to think positively and to be more prepared for success. As W. Clement Stone said, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
- Feng Shui Lets Luck Flow: Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art designed to bring balance, health, and even luck to the people who practice it. Applying the principles of this art can help you be more productive, more positive, and less distracted.
- Lucky Charms and Rituals: Many sweepers swear that they have increased their luck by wearing a favorite pair of socks or t-shirt as they enter sweepstakes or by having lucky symbols like four-leafed clovers, ladybugs, or even dolls near their computers while they enter. But this is superstitious nonsense, right? Not necessarily. Using lucky charms and rituals makes you feel luckier, happier, and more optimistic. This positive attitude makes it easier to keep entering sweepstakes, and thus brings more luck into your life.
- Increase your Karma, Get Luckier: Karma is a tenet of Hindu philosophy, and it can be simply summarized as, “What goes around, comes around.” In other words, if you do good to others, more good things happen to you and the luckier you’ll be.
- Increasing Luck Through Spirituality: Many people turn to a greater power to help them increase their luck. Some say prayers, while others ask the Universe. For some people, they don’t reach out to a higher power, but turn inwards instead, using meditation to help them focus and enter more quickly and persistently. Each of these methods can make people feel, and be, luckier.
- Work Harder, Be Luckier: Thomas Jefferson said, “I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” By being patient, persistent, and having a positive attitude, you’ll see many more lucky results.
