Luck has remained a fuzzy concept as it has been difficult to explain its various components. 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 Complex Systems, Neuro-Science, Control Systems and 14 other subjects. In a soon to be released advanced program around improving Luck, we 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 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. Once in a blue moon windfall gain, but struggle, unhappiness and discontent on either side of the events. In lucky people, the luck based actions are intuitive and small events distributed over a large span which create consequentially big positive results. The cumulative impact of these lucky events creates significantly more positive and sustainable outcomes in our life. We are starting webinars on “Luck Re-engineering” soon and will post a link here for all those want to participate. Please keep checking this page.
