According to Dr. Richard Wiseman, a psychiatrist who has researched luck and its causes reveals that people aren’t born lucky or unlucky, the main difference lies with each person’s attitude and outlook. In his book, The Luck Factor - The Four Essential Principles, he mentions that if you want to improve your luck you should:

• Maximize your chances

• Listen to your instincts

• Expect to be lucky

• Look on the bright side

Accordingly, here are the 10 tips to improve your luck:

1. Change to a positive mindset will change your luck for the better: Every cloud has a silver lining. All you need to do is to look at the bright side of things. A positive mindset will attract more luck than someone who projects a gloomy outlook. When you expect yourself to be lucky you act successfully and confidently. What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve-with PMA. These are the wise words of Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone.

2. Your gut feelings: Listen to your intuition. It helps you avoid bad situations and maximize your chances. Do you have such instances when you wake up in the morning you have the solution to the problem that you thought very hard about it the night before?

3. Do things differently: As an example I always use a 728x90 Leaderboard ad block on top of the page and the results are poor but when I change to a 336x280 Large Rectangle block which I have never done before, my AdSense earnings improve.

4. Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity: When you have an idea go ahead and do it. For instance I write and post an article a day, all of a sudden one of my articles is a big hit with Stumbleupon . If I hadn't written continuously I wouldn't be lucky enough to come up with a popular article at all.

5. Stop worrying: Be relaxed and be alert at the things happening near you. When you are calm you will be able to spot opportunities.

6. Meet more people: It goes without saying that meeting more people or networking offers the greatest opportunity to get lucky breaks. I get to know more people by joining Facebook. And I am lucky enough to know a few who are kind enough to enlighten me about blogging.

7. Do it now: Nothing is going to happen if you don't act. You may fail but you don’t do it you don't even stand a chance to succeed. According to W. Clement Stone: “If there is nothing to lose by trying and a great deal to gain if successful, by all means try. Do it now!” For example, my article wouldn’t be popular if I didn’t bookmark it at Stumbleupon.

8. Ask for it: When you want something you ask for it. If you don't ask you don't get it. When you ask for it you may get overwhelming response.

9. Instead of saying ‘No’ say “Yes” more often: By saying ‘Yes” you increase the chances of getting new opportunities and find your lucky breaks.

10. Don’t allow the memory of bad luck to haunt you: Don't think that you have encountered a string of bad luck you are doomed to be unlucky. Forget about the past and tell yourself that this is 2009. Act and behave like a lucky guy.

Your luck is very much within your control. Just lift your spirits and look at life with a positive mental attitude and you will be lucky.

Wish you the very best of luck!
