Susan’s Sound Advice #265

I recently heard someone say that she has “no luck”. Why do others have all the luck and not her? Well, my theory is that there is no such thing as “luck”. The crux of luck is opportunity, so it makes sense that the more opportunities one encounters and the more receptive one is to those opportunities, the “luckier” one is. Studies have found that lucky people smile twice as often as others and engage in more eye contact than “unlucky” people do. This outgoing, extroverted behavior exposes a person to more opportunities due to the increased social interaction they experience. Similarly, being open minded and flexible allows one to encounter a greater number of unique prospects and makes one more apt to embrace new opportunities. Sitting around and hoping for a great opportunity is not going to make you “lucky”. Get out there and make your own luck!© 2011 Susan Korwin
