Fast Company recently posted an article on how some people create their own luck, rather than externalize it as a disowned larger power. Lucky people share four habits:
They intentionally build variety into their lives
They follow and cultivate their intuition
They expect to stumble on good fortune
They see the good in anything
When I facilitate strategic planning, I still like to have people identify what future good luck would look like and what they could do to bring about the conditions for these events. People always find it easier than they expect. Very empowering.
