Five Traits of Lucky People
Have you ever known someone who was so lucky that you are envious of them? If so, you might be watching them
like a hawk trying to figure out just what the heck they're doing to get so lucky!
And what would you do about it if you knew what the most common traits of lucky people are and that you could
begin developing them as habits in your life?
If you have an idea of how you might use this information, then this email ought to be a real eye-opener for
What we will do is look at the five most common traits of lucky people...
1. Remember the Good Things
In his book "Think and Grow Rich" Napoleon Hill wrote a series of experiments which were conducted to determine
what the difference was between lucky people and unlucky people.
The most common trait of lucky people is that they had the tendency to remember the good things
that have happened to them. They have a very powerful positive
So they talked about the good things that happened to them, and let the "bad" things just be a part of the past.
Naturally, when you hear someone talk about only the good things that happen to them, it's easier to perceive them
2. Keep Working
Lucky people are normally just people who continue to work in spite of the fact that they're discouraged or that
they don't "feel" like working. Obviously, if you give up on things when the going gets tough you're not going to
get as much of what you want in your life...
...but the opposite is also true. Luck is often nothing more than preparedness meeting opportunity, and being
prepared for opportunities means continuing to work even when those opportunities are nowhere in sight.
3. Know What You Want
Most of getting what you want in life is simply knowing what you want and sticking to it without being
distracted by all of the other opportunities out there.
If you don't have a strong focus on what you want, there will never be a shortage of distractions that will
divide your attention and energy and make it impossible for you to get what you really want.
Again, people who seem to be lucky are those who keep working even when things get tough. That takes a strong
sense of purpose that can only come from having a definite chief aim in life.
Knowing exactly what you want also causes you to come off as confident and determined, which often draws the
assistance of people who are willing to help.
4. Take Chances
Lucky people are also in the habit of taking chances rather than stepping back and thinking about all the things
that can go wrong before taking any action. They don't wait for the perfect time or circumstance, but they are
willing to take chances when most people are not willing to take them.
Combine this with the fact that they remember the good things that happened, that they know what they want, and
they the seldom give up, you have a near perfect formula for luck.
Only one more thing required to help you achieve any goals you set in
5. Have Definite Standards
Most people who never get what they want out of life simply lower their standards and settle for something that
they don't really want. Obviously, this leads to a negative attitude about life which has an effect on your
attitude and your ability to persevere in times of difficulty.
Lucky people, on the other hand, stick to their standards even when it seems that it is impossible to have their
standards fulfilled. And since they know what they want, take chances and persevere.
And that's all there is creating your own luck!
