People do make own luck, says psychologist

No votes yet

Psychologist Richard Wiseman has spent eight year studying why some people seem luckier than others, and it's not intelligence or psychic ability, but a person's outlook that makes them pay more attention to lucky or unlucky events. He now runs a luck school, teaching people simple principles to approach fortuous, or not-so-good, events in their lives to improve their 'luck'.

-Heh- I've already noticed--because of my outlook, I seem to have the most incredible luck. Note I didn't say good luck, nor did I say bad luck. Reason? It's both. I keep noticing amazing coincidences that make good things happen, and amazing coincidences that make bad things happen.

Wonder what that says about my outlook.

Smile! The world could use another happy person.
