Getting published definately takes luck, but what makes luck?

I am a upbeat, optimistic, and fairly observant person most of the time. I consider myself to be relatively lucky and so I am hopeful that if I am ever disciplined enough to finish my stories, that I will someday get published.

So what about people who are not lucky?

Well there has been some research done on the subject and while some things (like winning the lottery and being in the right place at the right time) cannot really be controlled, there are things that you can do to make yourself more lucky.

First, I found this article on yahoo:

A lucky find huh?

Then, I was in the right place at the right time to have a coworker show me this video:

So do you consider yourself a lucky person? If so keep an eye out for a money tree.


  1. That was cool! I would like to think I'd put a dollar on the tree myself if I had one- you know, pay it forward and all that. But usually I don't actually carry any cash ;p

  2. Cool!

    I think I'm a lucky person. I do. Maybe tomorrow I'll have a money tree growing in my backyard :)

  3. I'm a very lucky person. Sometimes I skate by and get exactly what I want with minimum effeort. It's unfair, if I think about it.

    Still, when my luck runs out, it runs out spectacularly. So I guess it all balances out.
