How to Get and Stay Lucky: What does Science Say?
They say you that if you can’t be good, then be lucky. Whoever “they” are, they certainly seem to have a lot to say for themselves. Still, most of the time, “they” seem to be on the right lines.
When it comes to luck, most of us tend to believe it’s all down to chance – if you’re meant to win a large sum of money or a holiday then you simply will do just that. However, there’s much more to the concept of luck and the science behind it suggests that there are ways to give yourself the best possible chance of success.
With a Kent resident winning the Lotto Millionaire Raffle back in September, we felt that there’s never been a better time to try your hand, and we’re here to guide you through a few of the steps you need to take in order to make yourself luckier according to scientists.
In more technical terms, this is known as correctly positioning yourself. First of all, it’s important to acknowledge that as a concept, luck does in fact exist and by putting yourself in the right situations, you’re likely to maximise your chances of capitalising on it. The old lottery related adage of “you have to be in it to win it” rings true in this scenario. People often bemoan their lack of luck but when it comes down to it, they usually aren’t giving themselves the right opportunities to win or benefit from a bit of good fortune. So, whether fancy trying your hand with progressive jackpot slot games such as Mystery Reels and Fortune House at Paddy Power or simply go down the route of buying as many different lottery tickets as possible, remember that sometimes you do need to stick your neck out a little bit.
Don’t Be Easily Discouraged
It’s very easy to give up when it appears that luck isn’t going your way. Consider a couple who have bought a lottery ticket every week for 40 years versus their neighbour who found a valid slip when walking to the shops one Friday afternoon. If the latter wins, it would be very easy for the couple to give up the belief that they were simply not destined for greater things. Lucky people tend to keep their options open and don’t blame themselves – after all, chance is just that and it’s unlikely to be your fault when things go wrong.
Go Where Luck Tends To Reside
Getting lucky doesn’t always revolve winning something or receiving a cheque in the post. Luck can come in many forms and sometimes, it can simply relate to new opportunities and doors opening in a “right place right time” sort of manner. To this end, it’s important to surround yourself with individuals who appear to have things happening for them. In order to get noticed, it’s important to cultivate the kind of personality which makes people sit up and listen; from there, you will gain the contacts and experience and give yourself a better chance of good things coming your way.
Well… Are You Feeling Lucky?
This is by no means an exhaustive list but utilising these tips will certainly help increase your chances when it comes to getting the luck on your side. As has been already mentioned, Kent has had it’s fair share of luck this year. Aside from Mr R (the winner chose to stay anonymous) landing the Lotto Millionaire Raffle, a Kent man also scooped £1.3 million earlier in the year whilst playing online slots. Who knows? It could be you next.
