Luck has remained a fuzzy concept as it has been difficult to explain the inner workings of the mind and how external events sync up with internal processes to generate luck. . For the first time, based on a 20 year study and applied processes around improving Luck, we detail a multi-dimensional model of Luck. It is based on the study of meta-heuristics, cybernetics, computational neuroscience, swarm intelligence and predictive coding processes. Luck is unconsciously generated synchronization of mental time based events with possibilities existing in the sensory world. Many already know that we use two timings clocks in our mind, one is the world time and second is the mental time. Lucky people have unconsciously found a way to synchronize the world time with mental time. What seems like synchronicity is advanced pattern recognition by our brains. As pattern recognition is an unconscious process, it is difficult to look into the black box of mind/brain and find a method to replicate it. I will show you a counter-intuitive method to open the black-box, examine its contents and reprogram them for success. Bad Luck is generated in the same way as good Luck. To empirically prove the results, I will show you how to first create a Luck Baseline to assess the current level of Luck. We are then able to induce changes in the intuitive decision making systems to gradually improve Luck. As with other skills, Luck can be improved with practice if we know how to educate our intuitive skills.
Luck is not chance or randomness and is not the result of Intuitive hunches. Luck is not serendipity and it is not optimism. Luck does not improve by hard work or by visualization. Hard work increases the probability of success on the probability distribution curve, but, it works more like a fluke. Make hundred or thousand attempts at achieving something and it is likely that one will succeed due to the chance or randomness. Luck, however, increases the probability of success in narrow probability distributions. Luck is a pattern which is repeatable and in lucky people, we see these patterns repeated in all contexts of life. In one time lottery winners, what we see is not luck, but randomness. What we see is a once in a blue moon windfall gain, but struggle, unhappiness and discontent on either side of the distribution curve events. In lucky people, the luck based actions are intuitive and small events distributed over a large span create consequentially big positive results. The cumulative impact of these lucky events create significantly more positive and sustainable outcomes in our life.
What I present in this book is not a feel good theory, but a hands on process which, when applied diligently in a measurable manner, leads to proven results. The process is technical in nature and there is no wizardry in the method. It uses methods to transform the unconscious habit patterns to enabling ones versus the inhibiting ones.
