Have you seen people that get what they want? I'm not talking about shallow or arrogant people, or people that what they want is a man or woman and they go there and steal, but like having good parents, good family, they also get lucky in love life and in friendship. What's the secret to become a Lucky Person?

Sometimes we need to create our own luck. For instance, when opportunity comes, grab it. When you think u meet the person of your dreams, go for it. Be honest to friends and treat them sincerely with your heart and you'll find real friendships. Luck often correlate with our attitude and behavior. When we have already put in our best efforts and we still couldn't achieve what we want, then only we blame on luck :D else try again and again until we achieve our target Have a nice day!

I love your attitude. Don't be a victim and blame everything on luck! take what your given and make it your own. Taking more chances brings you more things. I've learned this.

You can be lucky too,you know. All you need to do is pray, be a good person,friend, daughter and a citizen. Make it a habit to do the right thing against all odd.

We all view "being lucky" from different perspectives. Some people have very little financial success but have a great family and they consider themselves very lucky for that. Others have the gift of intelligence and that helps make things much easier, even if not better, for them to make their way through life. When we think of luck it usually comes in the form of something that has happened that we had little to no control over but ended up a good thing. There are however many things we can do to bring about our own luck. What it takes however is a very positive person that just somehow knows that they deserve what ever it is they want and are willing to do what ever it takes to make it happen. When we identify what we want in life we have two choices. One is to continue to wish that, what ever it is, would somehow magically happen and the other choice is to make it happen. I will use myself as an example. Many years ago I started a carrier that I believed I would be in until I retired. I loved that work but it was not to be. I had developed a health issue that forced me to resign. So there I was, without a job and no chance of continuing in that field. I attempted to see what I could learn to do but found my first pick out of my reach. In order to begin in that field you had to know someone already in that field that could help you get started, and I didn't. So I realized more education in something was my only option. In looking I found something that interested me. Computers. At that time most people did not even know what they were as they only existed in corporate headquarters and were monster machines. I went to a trade school and it led to a job in that field. While it was a long time coming it proved to be the best choice I ever could have made and found I loved that work. It became my life's work and I did well. Had I just attempted to get by with what ever job I could find I never would have done this well. Some people would consider that as I just got lucky. The reason I chose trade school was because coming out of high school I could not see college as an option for me. Had I been able to change that mindset life could have been even better but very well could have led me in a different direction. For people who go through life believing that the only reason anyone has what they want is because they are lucky are people who let life happen to them. They somehow cannot see they do have a choice and if they really want something they can have it if they are willing to make it happen. They may never get rich but they can be so much better off if only they believe they can do what it takes to make something happen. Of course the real key to that is it must be something they can be passionate about. As I have said we all view being lucky differently. What some people view as being lucky others would think no that is not good enough. There is no magic secret that let's you become a lucky person. The only truly lucky part of life is that we have good health. After that, given our abilities, we can do or be anything we truly want to be.

Just dream! How I wish I can become a lucky person just by dreaming! In my opinion, a person can be lucky if he is able to give more than take. Clique as it may appear, one good turn deserves another. It is this belief that I believe one can become lucky simply by giving. Perhaps it is the gift that brings happiness which in turn makes the person feels lucky.

Well you can't really change your luck. Its external to yourself. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines luck as: a : a force that brings good fortune or adversity b : the events or circumstances that operate for or against an individual http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/luck So either way luck is beyond your personal control. However, what you can do is create 'lemonade out of lemons'. Basically take what you get and make the best of it. Sometimes its just a positive outlook. Sometimes its more about appreciating the things you already have. Me for example. I'm living in Northern Canada working right now. I'm away from all my family and friends. It feels like I have no friends and I am very lonely. But when I really think about it there are a lot of good friends who care a lot about me in Vancouver. I have a lot of friends but they aren't with me right now. I talk to them regularly on the phone and through facebook. When I visit Vancouver I never seem to have enough time to see all my friends. The secret to being a lucky person is just being positive and creative in life.

Lucky? Sorry dear but I don't believe in luck. I don't even want to defend on luck for I don't want to live by chance. The best way to have a good life is to put your trust in God. When you do, you will surely be blessed and being blessed is far and not the same as being lucky.

Hi katie: There are different secrets but for me, the secret to be a lucky person is to know exactly what you want, to keep studying and working to be wiser on the area you want to be a specialist and to take the challenges you need on this area. This have usually worked for me and when I make a special goal on my career I feel i am a lucky person. ALVARO

One can't help the circumstances they are born in. Sure they could be considered lucky that they had good parents but even if they didn't they can still change their circumstances if they wanted. Luck has to do with being open to opportunities and believing that you are worthy of good things and taking advantage of everything that is available to you. You won't be lucky if you sit around and do nothing and expect things to come to you. You have to get out there and try to make it happen.

Lucky people make important decisions by listening to their instinct or gut feelings. They may even improve their abilities by meditating, visualization and clearing their mind of other thoughts. Lucky people are able to manage and even thrive upon the ill fortune (or bad luck) that comes their way. They imagine how things could be not as good as, they do not dwell over the past and they take control of the present situation.

Luck is a skill you develop. The more prepared you are, the luckier you will be. Because, the more confidence you have, the easier it is for you to handle situations with ease. So always learn more skills, the more skills you have, the luckier you are. If you speak more then one language you are luckier then a person that only speaks one. But, a really good way to develop luck, is to build a large network of people that know, like, and trust you. The more people that know you, like you, and trust you, the higher chance you have of finding an opportunity that is good for you. And the luckier you will be. Also, if you believe you are lucky, you will be luckier, but you have to convince yourself first, a good way to convince yourself of anything, is to repeat over and over in your head, and out loud, as well as on paper, in the present tense. Such as, I am an amazingly lucky guy/girl. Which I am, and you can be too, if you would only let yourself see it. Sincerely and With Appreciation.

In my opions ,luck comes from how we look at it.So the conception of luck should be clear in our mind should be clear and suitalbe.For example ,when on the road,you catch sight of some beautiful flowers.Some persons will treat it just as normal things ,not as luck.However,if you find it helpful relax yourself by just enjoying the beauty,they are your luck.Just like how we treat success,the standard plays an important role when we are looking for luck in our life.When you get extreamly thirsty,it may be a lucky affair to find a glass of water.When a heavy rain attacks on your way to some place, having an umbrella in your hands must be luckier than having money.Therefore,luck is everywhere as long as you have a pair of clever eyes. Thanks,and wish your lucky!

I don't know people who are too lucky... What I know is God is good enough that He share the blessings equally to us. A person who have good fortune may not have a good family life or vice versa. I know I am not lucky financially, I don't even have lucks in simple raffle draw to lottery, but I know I am blessed to have a peaceful family life.

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who are born lucky and things like fame, success, money etc walk into their life, even if they don't ask for it.... and then there are second kind of people like you and me, who honestly work hard just to receive what we deserve for our hard work, yet it comes to us with lot of difficulty or does not come at all until we keep trying again and again....but finally it will come, because honest and hard working people are always loved by God and he fulfills all their wishes, may be slowly, but somehow or other, he makes us feel that we are lucky too..... So if you are not born lucky and yet want to be lucky, just keep doing you work honestly and have faith in God.

hello, To became a lucky person. For me, is to become humble as always and always keep your feet on the ground, people will love and adore you by that. Always respect others because they will respect you back. Always stay contact, I mean with your friends, you usually lost contact when you enter different paths, Show him/her that you still really care for them, by that you wont lost any of them. Always trust and never get envy because a strong relationship in friendship or in partners always fight to this reason So, stay focus on it. Dont judge others, all people that you meet everyday in different places dont just judge them because of this, and that. You keep know them first. So, that's all I think. it is kinda difficult but keep trying.
