Are you lucky in life? Really do you feel like you're a lucky person? Not that you have a perfect life, but that things just seem to always work out for you. Even apparent negative situations end up turning into something better. Do great opportunities simply fall into your lap? Do you meet (attract) the right people in your life? If so, then you are truly a lucky person, if not, you can quickly increase your good fortune by following the tips I suggest.

A few days ago I was at a coffee shop with a buddy of mine. Sitting deep in an overstuffed blue chair, I listened to my friend talk about how lucky my life seems to be compared to his. I never really thought about it before, but he is right. I put down my coffee and nestled back into my chair, taking it all in and trying to digest his compliments.

A bit later, I mentioned that I need to find a topic for my article this month. He immediately said, "Why don't you write about how to be a lucky person! I chuckled to myself because I would have never thought about that in a million years, but it intuitively felt so right. I knew that the Universe had just winked at me with a confirmation.

Coincidently, I had read a study held in England a few years ago about lucky people and was mesmerized by the information. I remembered how the qualities of these people really described my attitude about life. Even though luck is difficult to measure and I certainly don't have a college degree in good fortune, I knew I could write a great article and help many of my readers. I was stoked to get started writing.

He said, goodbye, gave me a hug and left his empty cup still dripping with foam on the table. All around me, the conversations were mumbling into my ears. I quietly sank deeper into my chair put on my headphones and started to type. I must have been in a trance because with only one refill this entire article poured out of my Soul and into my laptop. I wrote the first draft in less than two hours. Wow, how lucky can I get, since I originally thought I was going to need the entire weekend to write.

Whether you believe you are lucky or not, most people think that luck is not real or at best a random activity that can't be chosen or developed. You might think that people stumble into good things by accident. How then do you explain when a friend calls you at the last minute with free tickets to a sold out show you've been wanting to see? Or when you turn around to quickly drive back home, because you forgot something and a long lost friend is standing at your door but had no way to contact you except to stop by and hope you'd be home. Is this coincidence or something much more magical?

I believe in magic and miracles. I believe becoming a lucky person is easy when you understand the characteristics of 'blessed' people. Consider for a moment that luck isn't random after all! There is an attitudinal structure underlying every fortunate human being. And anyone who is willing to change their mental-emotional habits can increase their good fortune and become lucky.

The English studied showed what naturally lucky individuals have in common with each other. They discovered a set of four qualities that set them apart from the 'unlucky'. The cool thing is that people who developed these attitudinal qualities started to increase their own good fortune very quickly!

Four Qualities of Lucky People

1. Lucky people are mindful and present. They pay attention to the present moment and aren't preoccupied thinking about the past (disappointment) or fearing the future (worry). They naturally choose to live in the present moment. This allows them to notice and seize new opportunities, instead of being distracted, confused or simply unaware.

2. They value their intuition as much as logic and reason. They tend to look at both the bigger picture and also the details of the smaller picture in their lives. They're open to an intuitive sense of possibilities (bigger picture) and how it can fit into their current situation. They are neither stuck in the details nor dreaming about the future. Instead, they bring these two perceptions together; awareness of the big and little picture, the possibilities and the actuality of their lives, simultaneously. This offers them a way to set goals and make a plan that works.

3. Lucky people have a positive relationship with the future. They are hopeful about the unknown (future) instead of being fearful. Even though they don't have all the answers, they're naturally optimistic and open. They refuse to fantasize about what could go wrong and instead focus on what can go right. They feel positive even when things appear to be negative. Simply put; they don't let negativity get in the way of their plans and dreams.

4. They are self-empowered and take responsibility. They refuse to hang out in feelings of powerlessness, apathy or self-pity. They don't believe that life happens to them nor are they a victim of circumstances. They know that what they think and feel about themselves and the future matters. They believe that opportunities are a direct result of their attitude, thoughts, feelings, and actions. Simply put, they embrace their inner power and choose to live their lives with responsibility.

The study also revealed that most lucky people had fairly large social circles. They make friends easily and are socially connected to their community. They're naturally outgoing because they really enjoy people and tend to be non-judgmental. They get involved with their community. They believe that people are inherently good, beautiful and caring, this tends to make them popular individuals.

Wanna Get Lucky?

At first, this can seem like a large demand. The truth is you can almost instantly increase your luck, simply by reading this article and making a choice to function from the qualities of lucky people. That's right a simple choice in a single moment can shift and lift your energy into the realm of good fortune. This article should only take 10 minutes or so to read- lucky you!

Many times in my life I experienced how quickly I could turn a negative situation around - literally mid-sentence - by changing my attitude and embracing my power. I believe that the minute you stop pretending you're powerless and stop feeling like a victim that miracles begin to rain into your life. I've experienced this over and over again, and have witnessed it with others who have chosen to live in the magic of life.

Four Secrets to Increase Your Luck and Good Fortune:

1) Embrace and accept yourself and your life, just the way it is. The good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly-accept everything that is happening in your life, warts and all. Stop fighting yourself and make a decision instead to accept things the way they are instead of longing for it to be different. Acceptance creates the space for change and healing to occur.

You'll feel more comfortable when you accept yourself and begin to naturally relax in social situations. A quick method to do this is to choose to believe that the world is a friendly place. It is here to support you and your dreams. Unlucky people believe the world is 'out to get them'. Which world is true? Whatever world you choose to believe in will be true for you! Both worlds are possible but only one will become your reality. Choose wisely.

2) Listen to your intuition and open your heart to feel greater intimacy. There is much more happening around you than you can ever grasp in your conscious mind. Your mind filters out over 50% of the experiences happening to you right now. However, beneath your conscious awareness, your subconscious is continuously picking up clues about your future and the possibilities that are there. This is called your intuition. When you blend intuition with intimacy, you will experience a deeper connection with yourself and others. You'll know what decisions to make and why. You'll be more wise and understanding. Opening your heart will improve your intuition and deepen your sense of purpose. This naturally leads toward increasing your opportunities for luck and expanding good fortune.

3 Avoid feeling sorry for your self. Admit the truth- you are powerful. Embrace a resilient positive attitude about your self and your life. You know this and have done it before. Lemons can be made into lemonade when you change your attitude. You can learn something about yourself from the worst disaster. If you'll begin looking for the silver lining in the dark clouds of your life, your luck will improve rapidly. What you focus on expands. So focus on being powerful and seek the good in all situations.

4. Meditate regularly. If there is one activity I had to choose what I believed cultivated good fortune and luck, it would have to be meditation. Looking back on my life, I now realize that learning to meditate as a teenager was a major turning point in my life. It changed everything dramatically. My good fortune accelerated once I learned to relax and meditate on a regular basis. I fully believe that meditation opens the door to a fortunate and lucky life.

How Meditation Increases your Luck and Good Fortune:

- Meditation increases self-esteem and self-acceptance.
- Meditation provides a method to relax your body and mind quickly.
- Meditation improves intimacy that deepens empathy.
- Meditation decreases criticism and judgmentalness.
- Meditation can foster a deeper sense of belonging.
- Meditation strengthens your imagination and improves your ability to visualize.
- Meditation opens your mind to the possibilities of your potential.
- Meditation helps create a positive relationship with your future.
- Meditation fosters positive feelings of hope, peace and good expectations.
- Meditation improves your relationship with yourself and your world.

In most studies on psychological health, those who meditate regularly (at least three times weekly) are less nervous, anxious, depressed, and much less irritable, controlling, or inhibited. They were overall more sociable, self-confident, felt positive about themselves and the future, they were emotionally stable, and self-reliant individuals compared to non-meditators in the study.
