Scientists told at what are different people suertudas of all other

Many people tend to explain their failures chronic with the simple lack of luck. In the other sidewalk are the lucky ones who are not better than others, but it seems that the luck worship. However, scientists are not in agreement with that fortune is blind, and claim that the luck depends on many aspects of the person himself. gathered some irrefutable proof that it is entirely possible to get lucky.

After several experiments, the researchers determined what is different lucky people of all the others. People suertudas:

1. Know notice opportunities casual

The former mage and now a professor of psychology at the University of Hertfodshire Richard Wiseman gathered 400 people who considered themselves very fortunate or very unfortunate, and conducted a study that lasted ten years. The results of this research were explained in his book “the luck factor” (The Luck Factor). Wiseman says that “lucky” and “unlucky” chronic do not exist, just that some people know how to notice it better than others, the opportunities and seize them.

The professor conducted an experiment: they asked the research participants to count photos in a newspaper. Those who considered themselves unfortunate to have spent 2 minutes on this task, while the “lucky” ones, just a couple of seconds. What happens is that the second page of the newspaper had an ad huge: “Stop counting: there are 43 photos here”. Unlike the “unfortunate”, they noticed immediately.

2. Take for luck up the unsavory events

Wiseman asked the participants the following question: “If you were in a bank during a robbery and the criminal you shot in a arm, what for you would be a luck or not?”. “No,” answered those who never have any luck. “Of course, which is lucky, because he could have me shot in the head!”, answered the lucky ones.

You can also test yourself by answering the question: “How catalogarías to a person who was on the verge of death 7 times, but survived? What is a lucky or, on the contrary, the one who is always looking for problems?”. Such a person actually exists. Is the music teacher Serbian Frane Selak and, of course, is considered the most lucky of the world. Frane has survived a train crash, multiple car accidents, and on one occasion fell from a flying aircraft. The first time I bought a lottery ticket won 600 thousand pounds sterling. Is it not lucky?

Problems occur with everyone, but those who take it as a positive experience, in the end conserve a optimistic attitude towards life and look to the future without fear.

Do not get sucked in to your failures. Better ask yourself: how can I exploit this situation? What is it that has taught me? What do I do to make it work for me?

3. Believe in your luck

Richard Wiseman believes that luck is to be taken as a personality trait that can be developed: it is sufficient to believe in that all will be well, make decisions according to intuition and not to obsess about the questions.

The efficiency of such conduct is proven by Maia Young of the University of California. She discovered that students who believe in their luck to take on the difficult tasks more frequently and achieve greater results than those who are considered unfortunate.

4. Always try something new

Richard Wiseman invites us to declare a war to the routine and seek new experiences all the time:

  • Break the itinerary more often, making the tasks used in a different way and try new things all the time;
  • change your social circle.

For example, he invented for his students a task: to not treat at the party and in the conference only to people you already know, you should come and see it and introduce you to all the people who bring clothing of a certain color.

Professor of psychology Philippe Gabillet also believes that the more acquaintances we have, the greater is the probability of being lucky. You just need to be attentive and generous with the people, and will respond with the same.

5. Use amulets

In 2010, scientists from the University of Cologne conducted a study, inviting students to put a ball in a hole. The participants were divided into 2 groups: the first group received the ball, “happy”, which according to the teachers, had been noted on many occasions; while the second group received a ball common. The average result of the first group was 36 percent higher than that of the second.

In another experiment students were asked to bring their amulets and then removed them to photograph them. After this, the participants had to do a test of cunning. At the same time, a half of them were returned their amulets, while the other, not, claiming that they would do so at the end of the test. The students from the first group again showed better results.

So, the scientists showed that the amulets really help to achieve objectives: increase confidence, reduce tension, and help you to feel that you are controlling the situation, for which allow you to perform the task with better concentration.

6. Seek support from other people

In another experiment the students had to solve a children’s game as quick as possible: put 36 small balls in 36 holes small. The group felt the support (the instructor was encouraging the participants with the phrases “I Am with you”, “I Can do this!”), he finished the task much faster than people who did so in silence.

Surround yourself with those who instead of complaining about the life they know to support, are fortunate and are willing to share with you their thoughts and positive energy. Because we are who surround us.

Luck is the state of our consciousness. If we take life not as a difficult test, but as an adventure and difficulties, like a challenge; if we feel pleasure in looking at solutions, without a doubt, we expected the success. Opportunities are the doors. Tócalas and you will open up.
