Why are some people so lucky and others are not? You will be surprised to know that these lucky people are no more blessed or special than you and me. They simply have a few habits and traits we all could learn from.

We tend to think that luck is an undefined power of kindness that comes from the universe. Sometimes, it is indeed so, but many things we call “coincidences” are not always associated with concepts such as fate, destiny, or luck.

Instead, these things are the direct result of our actions. Even in order to win the lottery, you first need to buy a lottery ticket. And lucky people know this very well.

According to Dr. Richard Wiseman, people who consider themselves lucky behave differently from those who believe they are not. Luck is a way of life, which can be changed.

See how lucky people think and learn from them!

1. They properly use the time

Use your time wisely and make the most of every day because time is a deceiver. One day, you are 16 years old and have your whole life in front of you, and then, you suddenly wake up 40 years old. Yes, this is how quickly time flies, so don’t waste it on nonsense.

Lucky people make time their ally and do not let the opportunities go lost because of fear of failure.

2. They consider themselves lucky

Lucky people believe that they are lucky, so they face life openly and with optimism. Thus, they are always in an advantageous position and see only challenges, not obstacles in front of them.

Here, I’m not talking about blind positivity. I’m talking about realistic optimism – an ability to be positive without turning a blind eye to problems and negative emotions.

3. They don’t confuse luck with the unexpected

Life is full of unexpected events, but it does not determine the destiny of every person. Coincidences are everywhere around us, but luck is a personal matter. An unpleasant outcome that is influenced by external factors does not determine if a person is lucky or not.

We often see how bad things happen to good people. Some things feel meaningless and utterly unfair, but the truth is that they just happen. Hardships are a part of life and can help us learn from our failures and become wiser. Some people give up easier than others, but lucky ones rarely do.

4. They are more mentally strong

Lucky people are not ruled by stress and manage to keep their temper in all circumstances. This helps them use their emotional strength properly and remain calm, focused, and efficient no matter what. Fortunately, coping strategies for dealing with emotions and stressful situations are available for everyone, and with some practice, you can master them.

As you can see, luck is more about a person’s attitude and not some blessing of the heaven. Lucky people tend to be more positive, resilient, and mentally strong, and you can learn from their traits and habits too to get luck on your side.
