Luck


I learned today that a study was done in 1999 on “luck”. Researchers took two groups of people, one group who considered themselves lucky and the other who didn’t. They were asked to predict the results of multiple coin tosses, and the statistics indicated that the “lucky” group was no more correct in guessing the correct flip than the “unlucky” group.

However, in an exit poll, the “lucky” group seemed to remember positive experiences more frequently than negative ones, and the “unlucky” group focused on the negative.

What this suggests is this: people who consider themselves “lucky” do so because they focus on the good in their life, which in turn leads to a more positive attitude, which leads to more positive relationships, and more positive opportunities. That’s right, your attitude plays a role in the opportunities you see, and the relationships you experience. So in reality:

What we understand luck to be is really the result of a positive attitude.
