Luck is real, it's not magic, it's not "hope" incarnate, not exactly anyway, and it's not something that happens by chance- even though it's manifested often without your conscious consent or awareness. Today, in this article, I want to help you re-frame what luck really is/stands for, and to help you visualize a new vantage point on the luck phenomenon that is profitable, not one that nickel and dime’s you to death with very little results (i.e. lottery tickets, lucky charms, lucky talisman). I want to clear the air for you by showing you that you do have luck on your side, if you play by the rules of the game (just one book in the game of life really).
Hacking Luck: How It Works, How You Can Generate It At Will, And What REAL Luck Looks Like

Be Careful What You Wish For... You Just Might Get It...
You Are One Of The Lucky Ones!
You can cultivate a mindset that fosters luck by literally putting you always in the right time and at the right place (by design of having 10 right times and right places to choose from at any given time or in any given situation) to have the opportunity to mold your wishes into reality to live the life you want seemingly effortlessly. Then, there you have it...You're One Of The Lucky People. Your Still Only A Private So Don't Get Cocky Yet...
Let's Talk About "Hope"
For A Moment...
Hope is great to have at any level, but it’s still at its core, a power source. It can cause both great things and depressing things (crashed expectations, for example). Having hope (i.e. buying a lottery ticket expecting you "might" win) and depending on faith (i.e. saying "I'm just going to let the universe decide if I deserve the money or not) to make your "wishes" come true instead of realizing you have to take certain (often small, easy, cumulative) actions to get the ball rolling, then you've likely wasted your time.
Buying the lottery ticket was part of a luck mindset formulation but stopping there to reach your goal of financial reward is not going to help you at all. You should be putting in other efforts as well where the lottery ticket was just one back-up plan due to its highly unlikely nature that you will pick the winning numbers. You could argue that hope was the actual product you bought when you decided to purchase that ticket and that would be a good thing, but if you bank all your dreams on achieving wealth through winning the lottery you may not try things that will actually work.
Putting too much hope into that lottery ticket winning is bad because it may create unrealistic expectations that you make changes in your life based on, like spending a raise before you've actually worked a day in the new position and haven't yet gotten paid any extra money.
Hope is like a power source. Many tap into it in part when they buy a lottery ticket and feel "lucky" when they do win but hope can also bring disappointment if you don't reach your goal or more accurately you set your goal too rigidly. When you prepare, you not only buy a lottery ticket, you also try to plant numerous seeds for ventures that could yield the same money in a different way. It's simple portfolio diversification really.
The Reincarnation Of "Luck" Into A Serious Skill Set
I'm not talking about a hand out or fortune without work.
Luck is real but it's not all pixie dust and unicorns, in fact it's all work. The difference is that if you work at it luck can become automated like planting seeds and later finding opportunities come to you. Even "work" can be eventually automated and thus your "engine" remains under the hood quietly churning out power for you without disrupting your life. Being able to outsource work is a form of luck!
The Luck Source -
The Two 'Realms' Of Luck
The mystery of how so called "lucky" people do it (even if they themselves don't know how!) is so great that it has sustained a fantasy concept (model) of "Luck" that has over the years evolved into what can only be defined truly as serendipity.
- Dr. Phil McGraw
Most people are actually pretty lucky but don't realize it because they don't give themselves credit for the work. Many will give credit to God, the universe, serendipity luck, other people, and more but never to themselves for pulling it off.
When we don't actively put in work and see a result we tend to think it's luck/serendipity, when it's just that all our Lego's lined up just right and the event was the result- regardless of if you tried or not, are aware or not, the fact is it's cause and effect- plain and simple.
If you don't give credit for lucky happenstances that happen- to the real source- your own actions, choices, and preparedness- then you will never be able to sustain it, simply because you'll never be prepared to see it, you won't plan or prepare for it, know it's even there, and especially taking action on it (the only way to truly invoke luck).
When you realize what luck truly is and how it really works, not only will you be able to sustain prosperity and awareness, but you will come to realize just how it's been staring you in the face all these years.
"You Simply Weren't Paying Attention Because Nobody Told You At An Early Age That You Should!"
This fantasy version of Luck has been brewing and evolving (really de-volving) so long I don't even know when it got started, but I don't really care either.
I'm not here to indulge you in fantasy but actual science, psychology, and powerful awareness of Luck off the set (i.e. when it's not playing a fairy on television, in books, or in the minds of people who are unaware of the true nature of luck).
The video near the top of this article (the guy giving away money to strangers and telling them they were lucky;click the link to hop up to the video in this article) is a great example of some of luck's potential results.
The people he gave money to weren't just random or nice to him that day- he actually sought out people who were always pleasant or as he put it "cool and positive people".
He gave them money (seeds) and asked that he/she do something positive with it- the results have been staggering.
To the people receiving the money they took action to be a good person, to project pleasant and helpful dispositions, (over years) and this was their reward.
Paying it forward brings on more and more- Now THAT is luck in action. You may find that luck is more common sense than serendipity!
"AHH THE THREE WISHES..."
Think about it like this:

What's Your Story?
"Nobody is immune to the Genie’s magical powers."
We all have it, we are all manifestors and creators and we all shape our destinies (and we contribute to others shaping theirs too). We tend to be reactive creatures. When something happens to us we react by labeling it and attaching a story to it.
Many outsource "life" to others, subject to their opinions, which are little good to your well being so it's a mistake to do so, but in the end our choices, our wishes, our very thoughts are what make us what we become. Paying attention to the events in your life and ignoring the responsibility of keeping your Genie pure; keeping its actions pure, is why many people are where they are.
