Creating your own luck

I came across an article the other day and I thought it made a good point about creating your own luck which is quite appropraite for St. Patrick’s day! All the people that I consider lucky put themselves in situations where being lucky is possible and they are also very positive people. Lucky people aren’t reckless, they generally play things quite safe but if an opportunity arises they strike and with so much positivity that it has a greater chance of paying off. When they do get lucky they shout about it a lot more than most would and everyone hears about it so it seems that they get luckier than they do. When they do lose they don’t beat themselves up about it. Here’s the article:

As someone who has studied this phenomenon, I happen to believe that people can actually make their own luck. Lucky people tend to generate their own luck by following four basic principles:

1. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities. 2. They listen to their intuition. 3. They create self fulfilling prophecies by having positive expectations 4. They adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck to good.

Unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. Take gambling for example they look for ways to make a fortune as fast as possible and so squander the opportunity to to make a good steady income from the game.

Lucky people are more relaxed, more open and therefore see what there is there rather than just what they are looking for. So you can think yourself lucky! I should know as changing my personal thinking pattern transformed my gambling and turned me from just another punter looking for fast easy cash into a steady winner making money from something I love. You could say…. I am a lucky B*****d! So could you, why not give some of the principles a try?

I also think this raised an interesting point about finding your own way and playing what’s there rather than looking for hard and fast rules. I myself have done really well with tennis trading but I will often look around for other ways to do well e.g. tipsters to follow or other methods that others are becoming successful with. Low and behold you start following a tipster when he’s on a bad run or you don’t put enough on winners because you don’t fully trust them or because your heart isn’t in it.

That’s not to say that you can’t make money following tipsters and that you shouldn’t but it’s important to follow all the sections, with stake s that are recommended and to keep these funds away from the ones used in your own betting. If you don’t it becomes very difficult to keep track of how well the tipster and you are doing especially when you hit an inevitable losing streak. You need to have confidence in future tips during the bad spells and looking back and seeing a positive record will help with this. You’ll probably do a lot better finding your own way to bet and you’ll certainly find t more enjoyable and rewarding. As the Levellers once famous sang “There’s only one way of life, and that’s your own.”

Only 4 premier League games this weekend with other fixtures being played on Tues and Wednesday. Fulham v Swansea is a tricky one to call. Fulham have been incredible at home winning 8 out of their last 9 and Swansea haven’t been great away from home despite being excellent at home themselves. However, Swansea are proving that they are a very good team and they do go for wins away from home so I think the price on them is a bit too big. WBA look a decent price away at Wigan who can’t score for toffee at the moment and I don’t expect that to change soon. WBA won’t have as potent a goal threat without Owdemwinge but the WBA draw no bet odds look decent at just short of even money.

On Sunday, United are an absolute banker at Wolves. 1.36 may seem low for an away team but right now I’d almost be willing to back anyone against Wolves at any price, well almost! Newcastle v Norwich is tough to call and Newcastle haven’t been as good defensively without Taylor and Norwich beat them 5-2 earlier in the season so the value is with them for me. Be lucky!
