In my Rich Habits research, luck was fundamental to success, particularly for the Big Company Climber-millionaires and the Dreamer-Entrepreneur-millionaires.
I can honestly say that very few of these self-made millionaires would have accumulated their wealth, had it not been for luck.
But, I’m not just talking about good luck.
I’m also talking about being the beneficiary of not having bad luck.
Bad luck can undo all of the good luck bestowed upon you. Cancer, Recessions, Technological Breakthroughs that make what you do, or your company does, obsolete, a cheating spouse, theft, a fire, a tornado, hurricanes, you name it.
Those who do not experience Bad Luck, are actually some of the luckiest people on the planet.
Thanks for ths one TOm. I have found in my research that we create our luck – through effort, serendipity, self-examination. Brian Tracy has a good product called ‘the luck factor’……LUCK-Create it; influence it.

Is luck just fate,
or can you change it?
A groundbreaking new scientific study of the phenomenon of luck and the ways we can bring good luck into our lives. What is luck? A psychic gift or a question of intelligence? And what is it that lucky people have that unlucky people lack? Psychologist Dr. Richard Wiseman put luck under a scientific microscope for the very first time, examining the different ways in which lucky and unlucky people think and behave. After three years of intensive interviews and experiments with over 400 volunteers, Wiseman arrived at an astonishing conclusion: Luck is something that can be learned. It is available to anyone willing to pay attention to the Four Essential Principles:
Creating Chance Opportunities
Readers can determine their capacity for luck as well as learn to change their luck through helpful exercises that appear throughout the book. Illustrated with anecdotes from the lives of the famous such as Harry Truman and Warren Buffett, The Luck Factor also richly portrays the lives of ordinary people who have been extraordinarily lucky or unlucky. Finally Dr. Wiseman gives us a look into The Luck School where he instructs unlucky people and also teaches lucky people how to further enhance their luck.
