According to superstition, someone who finds a four leaf clover also finds good luck. Everybody wants to be lucky but what can you do to bring yourself luck, besides find a genetically mutated clover leaf? The old saying goes, "Luck frequently visits the prepared mind." So, we’re going to look at 4 ways to prepare your mind for luck, also known as opportunity.
1. Always Be Inquisitive
Idle minds often don’t recognize an opportunity sitting right in front of them or they write it off as too difficult. Negative minds say, "That will never work" and go on the spread their ‘cheer’ elsewhere. You should always be looking for new opportunities. Ask questions. Search for the reason behind things. Listen to what other people are saying about it.
2. Always Be Networking
Don’t be the person who stays in a rut and avoids meeting new people. You never know when someone you meet might be the answer to a problem you’re having or who might cause you to think about something in a different way. This has been the key to success for many people ranging from Sears and Roebuck to Bill Gates and Paul Allen to Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
3. Always Be Willing to Make Mistakes
Fear of failure keeps many people from trying opportunities that will bring the success or it causes them to give up after a single failure. Often mistakes are a lesson necessary for you to learn the correct route to success. If you learn from a mistake you’ll often find success waiting for you on the other side.
4. Always Be Positive
Negative thinking ruins luck. If your thoughts are bad, you can almost always expect your results to be bad. Instead, keep a positive outlook even if things are going wrong. This can see you through the tough times and, when things are going well, it will make them even more enjoyable.
