On August 11th I announced a contest to celebrate my 99th and 100th posts. I posted that I would give out the bigger prizes only if I had over 50 entries which I didn’t have but I decided that the people who entered the contest put in the effort so I’ll award some of the prizes anyway.
If you missed the contest, don’t worry, because you’re not too late. I am extending the contest for another month or 2 and will award some more prizes. As an added bonus, I will give a 125×125 advertising block on my site for a month to the person who writes the best article on their blog about luck. My whole blog is about increasing your luck so browse around for some ideas. If there are multiple great articles, I may decide to give a few advertising blocks away.
I am a typical person more or less that has always tried to get away with doing the absolute minimum to get by. In school, I did my assignments last minute, I barely passes some of my tests, I crammed for everything and didn't care about retaining any information. I always wanted to be successful and get lucky but my problem was that I thought that luck and chance were synonymous. One day, all that changed when i found out that there was more to "Luck". I learned that it was possible to make your own luck and that people that were "lucky", all had very similar characteristics. I made a conscious decision to become one of those lucky people and the world started to open up. It didn't happen overnight and I'm still not there yet but at least I know what to look for and what to do. Recognizing the opportunities to get lucky is only the beginning of the battle. Now I have to train myself to jump on every opportunity and one day be truly "lucky".
