Are you Lucky?

--By Kirsten Weiss

I got obsessed with the topic for about three months after one of my sisters was killed in a random accident. The heroine in my current project, Shadow of the Witch, is hanging onto her obsession quite a bit longer, but I had the luxury of being able to write it out.


Researcher Dr. Richard Wiseman studied lucky people and wrote about his findings in his book, The Luck Factor. He identified four main traits of lucky people, implying that luck is something you can create.


  1. Lucky people expected good things to happen to them. Yes, there is something to positivity!

  2. Lucky people listened to and cultivated their intuition.

  3. Lucky people didn't spend their lives on the couch watching TV and eating potato chips. They got out there, putting themselves in the way of more opportunities.

  4. When something bad did happen, they turned it around in their mind, telling themselves that it only seemed unlucky, or this was setting themselves up for something better, etc.


So maybe the real question is do you FEEL lucky? Because if you do, odds are higher that you'll BE lucky. 🍀🔮🍇🍹😄🌟📚💡
